I never liked glasses and would refuse to wear them. Then I discovered contact lenses, which worked great, until I moved to Dallas. Somehow my eyes always felt as though I had sand in them - very dry. I couldn't wait to get LASIK. My eyes and I were determined to be good candidates and I got my... READ MORE

Without my glasses I couldn't see a thing. I was extremely near sighted. I did the Lasik Intralase procedure and it was pain free. There was a time when there was a little pressure, but I was warned about that. I can see great now without glasses. This was the best thing I've ever done for... READ MORE

Pros: I can see with 20/10 vision without needing to wear glasses or contacts, I won't be spending money on glasses or contacts in the future or having sore eyes from the contacts. Cons: Price, I cant rub my eyes for a month and I usually like to rub my eyes a lot READ MORE

Figuring that I'd save money by getting rid of my glasses and improving my eyesight, I treated myself to Lasik surgery back in 2001. After considerable research, I opted for monovision, so one eye was corrected for distance and the other for near. The surgery was easy, fast, painless and I... READ MORE

I have had bad eyesight since I was in 5th grade. The reason I decided to get Lasik was because I kept sleeping in my contacts, which was bad. I suffered minimal pain during the procedure (mostly discomfort) from the pressure, but it was cool for my son to watch the entire procedure from the... READ MORE

Before Lasik surgery, both my wife and I didn't have floters in our eyes, but after we had Lasik Plus in Mt Laurel, we got many floters in one month, which was very annoying!!! Also, some articles say that 10-15 years after Lasik surgery, people probably will develop many kinds of eye problems.... READ MORE

I had Lasik almost 2 years ago in one eye. My prescription was -8.5 and now I am only a -2.5. It was the best procedure I have ever done. For the first year, I had some night vision problems but now it seemed to clear up. For those who do have some night vision problems, you should order... READ MORE

I had LASIK done in March 2001. My eyes were -7.25 and -7.50, and I had worn glasses since 1973 at age eight (ugly black frames to boot). Not being able to see had limited me in so many ways, even with contacts. Example: you takes out your contacts when you go camping, which is a pain in the... READ MORE

I had one eye done around 10 years ago. The Best Thing I EVER Did for myself ! I looked bad in glasses and now don't need them. Horray ! I interviewed several doctors. I only had one eye done because I my eyesight was not too bad and I can read some still without reading glasses. If I had done... READ MORE

I got Lasik surgery 11 months ago (after 18 years in glasses) and have been thrilled with it ever since. I agree with the friend who recommended it to me that it's one of the best things I've ever done for myself. I love the freedom of not being dependent on external objects for decent vision...

I am a physician, who had Lasik done by a renowned opthalmologist in NYC. Of course I did my research beforehand: spoke with prior patients, read the literature, surfed the internet. Saw the warnings. But figured the odds were in my favor, as I am a woman in my mid-30's, nowhere near... READ MORE

My eyesight was horrible...I could barely even see a foot in front of me and that scared me thinking 'what if I lose my glasses driving' or 'what if my contact gets lost'. I looked into Lazik with my opthomologist and he did a few tests and he said that I was a great candidate for the procedure... READ MORE

I wish I would have done it years ago. My contact prescription was -3.75 in each eye. It was so amazing! I could see leaves on trees again. The next 3 days I remember crying - because I was SO HAPPY! It is so worth it! If I had money I would buy it for my sister!!! I wish I would have... READ MORE

Got both eyes done in 2001 and still have great vision to this day.  I don't miss my glasses one bit!  I was the perfect candidate for the surgery and told myself if I wasn't 100% then I wouldn't get the surgery.  My pupils are average size, my corneas are an adequate thickness,... READ MORE

I had Lasik surgery done in Canada in November 2003.  I wish I had saved the money.  I started out thinking it would cost $390.00 per eye as was advertised.  After I was checked into hotel in the area, prepped for the procedure and been there for hours, I was told I was only a... READ MORE

I had a lasik surgery done three years ago. Very fast, ABSOLUTELY painless. Have had 20/20 ever since. I don't think it fixes astigmatism, so the glares are still there at night like before. But no stupid fogging, falling glasses; no ever drying contacts; no re-wetting drops and stuff like that... READ MORE

I had bladeless-Lasik a few months ago. Know before you do this that the doctor will consider your surgery a success if one eye ends up 20/15 and the other 20/30. It's very common. This is how I turned out and most of my friends as well. (They failed to tell me until after my surgery.) I... READ MORE

I only had one eye done so I could both read and see long distance without glasses. Dr Lacey thought that I might have trouble adjusting to the monovision because of the large discrepancy, but I adjusted almost immediately. I love being able to read menus, labels, books in bed, etc., without... READ MORE

I went to a eye transplant cornea dr who was excellent. Surgery went really well, and by that evening I was seeing 20/20. Not swollen or red eyes but it did take a few days to feel 100%. I didnt do both eyes at once, just to be on the safe side. The results 8 yrs later, still pretty much 20/20.... READ MORE

It was great It didnt hurt, not even a little. At first he put a suction cup on my eye to keep it open and then I heard click click that was the machine cutting my eye open didn't feel it at all, and then the doctor took the laser and i starred at it for 20 seconds, then he folded back my eye...
