I have severe astigmatism, make wearing contacts uncomfortable. I would wear glasses as well, but still experience discomfort due to headaches I would get. I would get them anywhere from 3-4 times a week and would nearly feel immediate relief once I took my contacts out or took off my glasses.... READ MORE

I had LASIK done a bit over a month ago at TLC Laser Eye Centers in London, Ontario, Canada. I am 21 years old and have worn glasses since I was in grade five, and contacts for eight months. I enjoyed contacts and had no problems with wearing them but once I had the taste of freedom from... READ MORE

I have worn glasses pretty much my whole life. I changed to contacts way back and have always had issues with them, from not fitting properly to bad prescription, to changing to gas permiables. On top of my near sightedness I had Astigmatism. GEE THANKS PARENTS! LOL. All kidding aside, my... READ MORE

I would absolutely recommend LASIK. But only if it's Wave-front and Intra-lase. The removal of my astigmatism and other vision artifacts has been such a dramatic change that it reminds me of a drug trip. The world literally looks different. The depth and detail is different, not just crisper,... READ MORE

My LASIK experience has been great. The worst part was having to wear my glasses for 3 weeks prior to the surgery (I'm used to my contacts). I arrived at 11 am the day of the surgery. My eyes were scanned and checked again, I talked with the doctor, signed up for financing, and got a Xanax and a... READ MORE

Hi all I wanted to take a moment and share my lasik journey. I have been thinking about getting lasik for about 20 years. Since it first became available in the United States I have wanted it. There were a couple of things that held me back. First, I was scared to death! The thought that... READ MORE

So my wife and I decided to get Lasik at the same time. We were told not to since we have a ten month year old, but my parents were able to help out driving us and taking care of the little one. We had our consultation but I was on the fence, since I was comfortable in my contacts still, but... READ MORE

After wearing glasses and contacts since I was 12 years old I always wanted to get lasik. I was nervous (you only get one set of eyes!) For what could happen. But I eventually decided to do it. I went through Dr.Rahmani ojt of Brownstown, MI. I opted for the lasek (no flap) vs the standard lasik... READ MORE

My vision was never in the negatives, I did not have any astigmatism or eye diseases. It was a little worse than 20/40, but wearing glasses and contacts was the most annoying thing ever to me . Primarily wearing contacts for about nine years, I always had to deal with keeping them clean,... READ MORE

I'm 28 and have -2.75 in my left eye and -2.50 in my right. I'm booked into the Eye Institute, Auckland, New Zealand to have iLASIK next Friday. I'm pretty scared, I have a consultation/pre op on Thursday so at the moment they haven't checked my eyes and I haven't met them yet. I'm worried... READ MORE

Ive been wearing glasses for the last 15 years and i dislike the feel of it. My power is about -7.00 both eyes. Worse still, i have developed an intolerance towards contact lenses quite recently, my eyes would get itchy when i put them in. So i considered LASIK treatment. A close friend... READ MORE

I had lasik procedure done to correct my distance vision month ago. I had -5.5 on both eyes with -1.25 astigmatism. My left eye got crystal clear results within 2 days, but right eye is still noticeable blurry after a month allday for near and far vision. Right eye vision is not improving, it is... READ MORE

Since it's actually been around one year since I went through LASIK eye surgery, I thought about sharing my overall experience. I got prescription glasses for myopia when I was in 7th grade and always was not happy about it. I consulted my ophthalmologist many times in order to find any possible... READ MORE

I had my lasik surgery 2 years ago with Dr. Booth. I was really conflicted because I defined myself by my glasses. After I had my surgery I feel like my personality changed. I never wore makeup or did my hair before and now I am completely girlie! The surgery itself was not bad. I have bad... READ MORE

I was 24 when I had LASIK done on both eyes. I was nearsighted with a slight astigmatism in one eye. I hadn't needed glasses until I was about 11 years old and then didn't wear them full time until college. In my mind's eye, I always saw myself without glasses, so when I had the opportunity to...

Signed in for my surgery, was given a valium. About 30 min. later I was called back and given some numbing eye drops, Dr. Dempsey cut the flap, walked down the hall and Dr. Filutowski finishes the procedure. While the laser was firing to remove corneal tissue it smelled like burning chicken... READ MORE

I was tired of infections from contact lenses and wanted an experienced laser surgeon. Very fortunate to choose Dr. Joseph DelloRusso. He was patient, kind and knowledgeable. Despite my high astigmatism, had a perfect result with clear distance vision. My life is richer without the hassle of... READ MORE

This has been the best decision I could have made. Yes, I was nervous. No, I didn't want anyone playing with my eyes. But at 35 I was tired of wearing glasses day and night! I finally decided to get it as a present for myself. I felt anxiety the day before surgery but I was also very excited... READ MORE

I had my surgery just about 3 weeks ago. I cannot express how thankful I am to be free of glasses. I was terrified to do the surgery because anything coming remotely close to my eye really freaks me out. I had serious anxiety the day of and the days coming up to surgery because of the things...

I had surgery done at Dr Braverman in August 2013. My eyes were not too bad when I started, now I struggle to pass the DMV eye tests which I never did before. I was very disappointed with the surgery and would not recommend this company to anyone considering surgery. I spent almost $3000 to ruin... READ MORE
