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...

I loved this procedure. At first it felt a little weird.Right after the procedure. I could read the clock. My vision changed and, I received 20/15 vision. My vision will get even better than that in the near future. I recommend to any one who is a candidate to get Customvue Lasik done on their eyes. READ MORE

My eyes were -5,25 and -5,75 before the lasik procedure, in 2004, but I could read without glasses. After the surgery they became like +6,00. I used "pilocarpina", a substance that forces your pupils to become small. After the 15-day treatment, my eyes reached +1,75, which never... READ MORE

It has been 7 weeks since I had Lasik. My vision was -3.50 in both eyes. They day after and ever since the procedure I am 20/20. I am hearing a lot of horror stories, so far so good for me. Be very sure you do the research on the doctor. I went to 3 offices for consults before I choose the... READ MORE

It was only 3 months ago when it happened --I was driving home after work in the pounding rain in the dark of night. On top of this, I had forgotten my prescription glasses at the office. My guardrail collision was all I needed to get me won over on the idea of Lasik surgery. I began by... READ MORE

I had a great improvement!  I used to not be able to see the E at the top of the chart but afterwards I was 20/15.  Advice:  make sure your are happy with the refraction done before surgery because this is how your vision will turn out.  You know, when they ask you which is... READ MORE

I saved enough money for both eyes, and fully intended to do both. The doctor told me to only do one eye, in hopes that one eye wouldtake over close up vision, the other eye would see distant. It worked! While all my friends had to add bifocals as the got older, I never had to. It was the... READ MORE

Excellent results!! I wish I had done it earlier. It was fully covered by my health insurance (in Argentina), so that made it even better. Note: I added $100 as cost because I have absolutely no idea how much is charged in Argentina for this procedure. I paid nothing. READ MORE

I now have very dry eyes. Especially in the right eye. My eyesight was farsighted, now I cannot read without glasses. I had to get glasses anyway because of nearsightedness and farsightedness now. Now i have bifocals. I have a hard time seeing when driving after dark. I fear eventual blindness... READ MORE

I had an excellent experience with LASIK. My vision has greatly improved and I no longer have to reach for my glasses in the morning or worry about where I left them. I can read all the signs on the road without difficulty and without glasses. My personal life is better because I am not hindered... READ MORE

I had lasik surgery done by {edited}, he's supposed to be the best in the DFW area. My appointment was for 6:30PM on a Friday and my surgery was not done until midnight! So, after doing no telling how many surgeries during the week, he's doing mine at midnight on Friday. Anyway, they gave me... READ MORE

I love my lasik! Used to have to wear 3 different strengths of glasses and now I only wear driving glasses! I can see my face again and no longer need a 7X mirror! Best money I ever spent! Pain only the first day then I was fine. My vision changes (since I'm only 4 months post op) and won't... READ MORE

My husband finally had Lasik done in Scottsdale AZ by a top doctor for a total cost of $4000. We chose to pay more and picked the best of the best doctors and did a lot of research. You cannot be cheap with your eyes!! Now what they don't tell you about the surgery is, for some it can be... READ MORE

It took 3 tries to fine tune my vision, but relatively painless and NO more glasses/contacts, and no additional cost for enhancements. I had them use a monovision technique for me wherein one eye sees close and the other distance. One day of down time to rest your eyes, that's it. If you... READ MORE
