I had Lasik done about 5-6 years ago and am so happy with the results.  I am now in my forties and have had bad eyesight since childhood with over -5 in each eye.  I had researched this for YEARS before making the decision to go through with it.  I actually would interview... READ MORE

I had recently had lasik out my eyes feel like they have been burnt, as if I have been staring at a bright welding rod all day. I have pain when I sleep as well but its the worst when I am trying to read or working on the computer. Eyes don'y seem to want to work together. I'm worried that I... READ MORE

There are some very important things to remember when getting Lasik.  I had my surgery 5 years ago (at age 27), my eye sight is still 20/20.  As a mom, it is SO nice to not have to reach for my glasses during a 4 am feeding, or have to put contacts into bloodshot eyes after being up... READ MORE

Pros I can actually see street signs in the day and night time. I don't have to wear or keep up with eye wear. Most importantly, I feel safer because of better vision. I no longer squint all day when trying to look at something or someone. I Can finally judge distances between... READ MORE

I had LASIK at 21 as a graduation gift. My vision was pretty bad, I needed contacts or glasses everyday. Because I did not have a consistent eye doctor, I only did the consultation with the LASIK doctors. Make sure you meet with an optometrist or an ophthalmologist to ask their opinion! My... READ MORE

I went in for Lasik surgery on Feb. 12. I have had 20/20 vision since that day with no problems whatsoever! The staff is friendly and helpful and my husband was able to watch the procedure in a waiting room on a television. READ MORE

I have wanted to have my eyes corrected for many years but have been afraid of the risks and the possible pain. The staff educated me on the differences between PRK, Lasek and Lasik. Prior to the procedure, I had a full exam, I was not a suitable candidate for Lasik but I was for Lasek. The... READ MORE

I did my lasik in 2003. Before my prescription was 4.25 L - 4.50 R and both eyes had stigmatism for 2.75  I have needed glasses since I was 9 or 10.  Lasik is a big relief.  I wanted to do it earlier, but my ex boss (optometrist) insisted that I should wait till I was... READ MORE

I had lasik surgery 3 years ago and it is the best investment you can ever make. I started using glasses because I couldnt see the black board in college from far and immediatly purchased contacts. I used contacts for about 5 years before building the courage to do the surgery.  I was... READ MORE

I had my Lasik eye surgery performed in 2001. I don't remember what my prescription was before hand, I just remember that I required corrective lenses 24/7. I couldn't see much of anything without them. I also had astigmatism in both eyes which was corrected with the Lasik procedure. The... READ MORE

The idea of having one eye dominate your long vision and the other your near vision may seem foreign, but somehow the mind makes it work well... No glasses needed anymore for anything! One thing I wish someone had told me before... Really, don't mess with waiting for pain meds to work (they... READ MORE

I had only nearsightness -6.25 & -6.0 before my 2 lasik surgeries did 4 years ago. I was nearly perfect after the surgery except my right eye after the surger became -.75 astigmatism. As years go by, my nearsightness comes back, now -.1 & -.75+1.25 astigmatism. I went to get contact lens... READ MORE

My eye sight had gotten to the point where I was legally blind without glasses. Everything was fuzzy! I hated glasses with a passion and I hated waking up and having to put them on to see across the room. I hated having to take them off before I could sleep and I hated them misting up, getting...

It has been just short of a year since i had it done and my vision is EXCELLENT!!! I never cease to be amazed at what i can see. It is a life changing experience. If you are active and truly feel like you are hindered by glasses or contacts do your research then get it done. If I recall my... READ MORE

I didn't have a bad experience. I was so happy I didn't have to wear my contact anymore and that I can actually see in the morning without my glasses. My Dr. made sure that I was the right candidate and made me wear my glasses for month before letting me do my surgery. She said that since... READ MORE

I had really poor vision. I had lasik done on one eye, then the other. Initial results were far better than I even hoped for. Over the years it regressed ever so slightly, but I will always be better off than had I not had the procedures. The expense was the biggest hurdle to getting it... READ MORE

My eyesight was so bad, it frightened me. If I'd lost a contact or broken my glasses while driving, I could not get behind the wheel. Now I can see clearly and not worry. It was difficult to do activities such as snorkeling, hiking, kayaking, etc., and now I love the outdoors. I also didn't like... READ MORE

My eye sight was pretty bad - I couldn't even clearly see the big 'E' on the eye chart with my contacts out! I've worn glasses or contacts since I was 10, and finally at 24 I decided to do something about it. I've also always had sensitive eyes, I had a lot of trouble finding a brand of... READ MORE

I had lasik to correct the far field vision in my right eye. The results are awesome and the proceedure was less uncomfortable than a teeth cleaning. May have hastened onset of middle aged farsightedness in that eye, but that was going to happen anyway. No problems with night vision whatsoever. READ MORE

The reason my Lasik was sooo expensive is because I got it done when it first came out, and I got it done by an actual doctor, not just a trained technician.  I think I paid somewhere around $3950 per eye or something outrageous. Anyway, I had 20/200 vision with astigmatism before the... READ MORE
