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

My experience was great. Nothing I can complain about at all, at the time of my procedure anyway. My physician was Dr. Eugene Smith. He was amazing. Very nice, very caring and extremely professional. I went into having the procedure knowing that there was a chance I would likely have to have an... READ MORE

I wore glasses and contacts since I was in grade 1. I was as blind as a bat with out them. I usually always wore contacts and having a 6.5 prescription on the right and a -7.5 astigmatism on the left, glasses and contacts weren't cheap. I figured that over 10 years the surgery would pay for it... READ MORE

I have been looking at getting laser eye surgery for the last 10 years. I was declined surgery in 2004 due to wide pupils so I gave up looking. I recently found myself becoming less tolerant to contact lenses (gave me headaches after 6 hours of wearing them) and my glasses were a pain to put... READ MORE

I am Active Duty United States Air Force. I signed up to have this procedure done after much procrastination. I got orders to Korea and being overseas last time, wearing contacts and glasses was hard. Korea is a great country but they do not have the cleanest facilities when you are out and... READ MORE

I paid $4,300 to have it done in Anchorage, Alaska, plus travel costs (total was close to $8,000 because I was in rural Alaska at the time). The procedure itself was painless. Recovery time was very fast, I was pain free in a couple of hours and the next day i could read and watch TV. My vision... READ MORE

I've worn glasses since my early twenties. I decided to get it done in February 2010. Mann Eye was great from start to finish of the process. Everyone was awesome. The actual procedure only takes a few minutes. There was no pain... they flood your eyes with moisture and numbing drops. The day I... READ MORE

I had lasik 4 years ago without many complications I had have eye drops occasionally when working at the computer all day or when eyes were tired. I noticed that when my eyes were tired I got double vision. I had no pain or anything with my eyes. I have noticed they are drier now than prior to... READ MORE

I've been considering Lasik for many years. but I've been scared. After researching docs. I found it was worth a trip to find the best. My results are just amazing. I only wish I would have done this sooner. I'm glad I didn't limit my search only to doctors in my immediate area. I went for... READ MORE

I have had to wear glasses since I was in the 4th grade. It had progressively gotten worse so that when I was 31 I had 20/475 and could not even see 4 ft. in front of me without my glasses. I had thought about getting LASIK but it was sooooo expensive, and no guarantees! Luckily, once day I... READ MORE

I've needed LASIK for a while, but never bit the bullet because of certain people who told me about horror stories or that I should wait for better technology. Well, I went to a free LASIK consultation (after scheduling and cancelling a couple of times) and felt so at ease. Maybe it was finally... READ MORE

I have been wearing glasses since I can remember. My vision always got worse every time I went for an eye exam and needed new prescription. I decided to go in to see if I would qualify for the procedure, which I was a good candidate. After the procedure I am seeing 20/20, a little redness in the... READ MORE

Do not be fooled by the Free Enhancement for Life. I had the surgery done a few years ago and needed enhancements. LasikPlus moved from Raleigh NC even though the doctor who performed the surgery is still in Raleigh NC. They are requiring that I drive 4 hours away and 4 hours back to have 3... READ MORE

I have worn glasses since I was in the 5th grade and was told that because I had contacts on for so long it misshaped my eyes and that creating a cornea flap was a bad choice. Over the course of three weeks consultation he decided it was best to do the laser correction on the surface of my eyes.... READ MORE

I had Lasik 1.5 month ago. After lasik, I am perfectly clear and not very dry in my right eye, and blurry and more dry in my left eye. Whatever halos I had are pretty much gone now and starbursts seem to be decreasing. No pain. It is the left eye bluriness that bothers me and begins to... READ MORE
