Wavelight Allegretto Laser surgery was the best decision I ever made.  I was scared and hesitant about having the procedure at first.  Being dependent on glasses and contacts left me feeling disabled.  I never thought my eyes were capable of seeing so clear, it was like a miracle... READ MORE

Five years ago, if I spread my hand out, and touched my thumb to my nose, I couldn't see my pinkie. I couldn't see the time for the clock, let alone the trees for the forest. I was 21 when I had Lasik: an early bird in some sense, but my wretched pinkie vision gracefully hadn't... READ MORE

I have been dependent on glasses or contacts to see as I suffered from an astigmatism for 20 years. As a television sports reporter, my job is to SEE the action. Whether it's a homerun, a touchdown or the scoreboard, it seemed like the further away those things were, the more difficult it became... READ MORE

I could not be happier with my surgery. My parents were terrified of the idea of LASIK, which gave me all the more reason to choose the best surgeon I could possibly find. The procedure was quick and only mildly uncomfortable; this was because I already have unusually dry eyes. I made a... READ MORE

Lasik is really beneficial.Eye is something which will make you confident if operation is perfectly done.So i personally recommend that person can go for it and see the world free of specs and contacts.After operation i am feeling more positive and still only my one eye is recovered fully .Left...

So Im 18 years old. The reason I've sought out lasik so young is my glasses and my contact lenses were causing me depression! Late last year I developed some sort of OCD towards my glasses. They were always to tight or too loose or wonky or I could feel them behind my ears(it didn't help that... READ MORE

Motivation: I have worn glasses since I was about 8 years old. I have always suffered from depth perception issues that I related to wearing glasses. I hoped to free myself of this and I also hoped to be able to wear sunglasses for outdoor activities. Pros: Not there yet. Will let you know when... READ MORE

I was terrified at first after reading all the reviews and the horror stories about complications, but after years of wearing contacts my eyes have finally won the battle and I can no longer wear contacts so my only options were glasses. As a fitness instructor and sports fanatic as well as... READ MORE

I have been wearing glasses/contacts since grade school. I wanted LASIK for many years but didn't have enough nerve to go for the free consultation until now. It was the best decision ever and I wish I had done it sooner! It has only been a week since my procedure and my eyes feel great. I... READ MORE

I had lasik 4 years ago, and it's one of the best decisions I've ever made. Before lasik I was -2.5 in each eye with no astigmatism. My prescription had been steady for a couple of years, so I had a feeling I was a good candidate. I had my consultation, did the financial math (cost of lasik vs... READ MORE

I wanted to get LASIK because I wanted to be glasses-free for my wedding and I was also tired of dealing with prescription glasses/sunglasses. Sound eye and laser had a deal on LivingSocial, so I started doing my research. I was very worried about going forward with a discount LASIK surgery, but... READ MORE

No pain. No medical complications. No dry eye, halos or starbursts. No light sensitivity. Excellent (if not truly exceptional) surgeon. I just can't see anything clearly within 40 inches of my face. I think it is all about expectation. I was expecting to not need glasses. I went from... READ MORE

I would NOT do this again if I had the choice. I had to have monovision where they only work on one eye, and the although the procedure and healing were non-eventful, I think I actually would rather wear reading glasses. If you are considering Lasik for mono-vision, I implore you to wear... READ MORE

After alternating between glasses and lenses for the last 15 years, I finally went in for LASIK last week. My numbers weren't bad (about -2, both eyes), with the left eye improving by -0.5 in the last couple of years. I used to be a fan of wearing contact lenses earlier, and in fact often would... READ MORE

I decided to undergo Lasik because I heard such great things about it and wanted to be rid of contacts and glasses. I am farsighted and have astigmatism so i had a bit of trouble seeing even with my glasses. I got Lasik 10 days ago. The procedure was painless and took about 10 minutes total for... READ MORE

I chose LASIK because about 10 hrs into a 12hr shift, I couldn't make out numbers or see well enough to to drive home without applying eye drops on a near continuous basis. The place is my insurance would give a discount to reburied sketchy so I went to TLC center in Westchester Illinois with Dr... READ MORE

I'm 48 wear contacts and also readers. My eye doc said if I got lasik I would still have to wear my readers but I found another doc that has some of "inlay" procedure to eliminate readers. Being in this business I know how consultations go and just wanted some feedback if anyone else has had... READ MORE

I had an excellent experience at Dr. Chynn's Laser Vision Center in NYC. Dr. Chynn is fixing extreme cases that no other surgeon in the U.S. let alone NYC can touch. Dr. Chynn can do this because of the no-flap LASEK technique he invented at Harvard. I flew in all the way from Bulgaria because... READ MORE

I had a mild myopia since I was 17. I tried contact lenses but got tired of the maintenance they required to avoid eye infections. I started wearing eyeglasses permanently (even prescribed sunglasses) in order to halt any progression of my myopia. I was able to keep my -1.50 (LE) and -0.5 (RE)... READ MORE
