I am not typically the type of person to get cosmetic or elective surgeries and Lasik was my first experience into altering something about myself through surgery. I am SOOOO glad that I had Lasik, the procedure was quick, painless, and I could see the difference in my vision immediately... READ MORE

In April 1998 (remember that when you see the price I paid) I had bilateral LASIK performed. I'd been wearing glasses since first grade, and I believe started wearing soft contacts at around age 16 - that's over 20 years of plastic covering my eyeballs. My prescription by then was a whopping -14... READ MORE

I found a livingsocial discount for lasik for $2700 at a place that normally charges $5000. I work as a paramedic and need my vision to be good at all times. I was never able to nap and couldn't work double shifts because if I fell asleep my contacts would be killing my eyes. Cornea Eye... READ MORE

I was sick of wearing glasses and I could no longer wear contacts after being able to wear them for 13 years! It also cost so much money per year to keep buying contacts and glasses, so over the course of the next 4 years it will be well worth the investment. I will save money because I won't... READ MORE

I had Custom Wavefront Micro-LASIK using the Allegretto laser on May 4 and it was the best decision of my life. I had a few friends who had already done the procedure and it was something I began researching because I was tired of wearing contact lenses everyday. IQ LASER VISION made the... READ MORE

I had Lasik eye surgery done 6 months ago. I have been in chronic eye pain and discomfort since eye surgery. I had a pre-existing condition that was never pointed out to me causing my eyes to produce little tears and evaporate off of my eye. Dry eye doesn't sound bad, but it is the worse kind of...

I was a negative 10 in my left eye and a negative 9 in my right eye. It's been 7 years and one pregnancy since my LASIK surgery. I'm still a 20/20 in my right eye and a 20/30 in my left eye which my current eye doctor says will be beneficial in the long run because it will delay my need for... READ MORE

I've just had the lasik surgery yesterday and it sounds good idea to me to share my experience with Lasik surgery. I'm 23 years old and I have nearsightedness. Both my eyes were around -2.5/6. I was wearing glasses for about 5 years and I had a very bad experience with contact lenses cost me dry... READ MORE

Born with vision of 20/1000+ in each eye, it didn't hold me back. Became certified scuba diver using mask with custom RX lens, etc. Eyeglasses caused headaches, many sports impossible, zero ability to function without glasses, etc. About 1983, life safety issues due to blindness (20/200 is...

Last October, I had Lasik done. I will be 28 this month, and have had glasses since I was 10. I started wearing contacts when I was about 13. I had astigmatism in each eye and was blind as a bat without corrective lenses. I wanted my eyes fixed for years, but didn't know alot about Lasik,... READ MORE

Had Lasik eye surgery in 2002 in Kansas City. I was sick of contacts and glasses. I was a pretty straightforward case - good corneal thickness, etc. I was 20/15 after the surgery and have hardly thought about my vision since!! Lights aren't as sharp at night but it's really subtle - hardly... READ MORE

Anybody out there thinking about getting Lasik really needs to do much research before having the procedure done. I thought I had done plenty of research and felt very comfortable at the time with my decision. I saw more than 3 doctors before making my final choice. My Lasik doctor claimed to... READ MORE

I've been considering Lasik for several years. I've had glasses since age 20 and contacts since age 23 (20+ years now). I have an astigmatism in one eye and a moderately strong prescription in both eyes. I've had no previous history with eye injuries or dry-eyes and was concerned... READ MORE

Friday, Feb 11 2011, I had Lasik surgery on both eyes. The surgery was painless and the recovery was painless. The following day I had a follow up visit and the doc said everything was healing fine. I was not 20/20 and I had blurred vision. The rest of the weekend, there wasn't much... READ MORE

For many years I wore glasses as I was unable to wear contact lenses. I finally was given the option to get lasik eye surgery. What a difference!! I can see now 20/15 and the recovery time was really quick..maybe about 3 months for me. Its been almost 9 months and I couldn't be happier. Oh,... READ MORE

I received LASIK for my 40th birthday from my husband. He is in the military and had undergone PRK a few years before with amazing results. He kept saying, "It will change your life" and it has! I had worn contacts and occasionally glasses for 27 years. My vision was pretty bad,... READ MORE

My friend referred me and it my experience was amazing. I can see the next day and no complications. I had the bladeless procedure "intralase." Its 1/23 now and my eyes are still 20/20 =D   READ MORE

I've been wearing glasses since 10 years old. I have really bad vision. My eyes are uniquely bad in their own ways. I also had really bad astigmatism which makes it even harder to see without glasses. I've been wearing glasses for 15 years, contacts for about 9. My eyes are dry and... READ MORE

Following LASIK surgery, I could see 20/20 and was so excited as I was very very nearsighted. However, 5 years later, I am once again wearing contac lenses and glasses. Though my vision has regressed to the point it was initially, I am restricted to driving with them. I would NEVER have wasted... READ MORE

I was -6.00 diopter in nearsightness. After surgery I was 20/20. Starting in 6th year, my nearsightness returned. I have lost about 1/3 of my vision correction in the last 5 years and require eyeglasses to drive at night. So my point is while the surgery is permanent, the vision correction is... READ MORE
