Hi! If you're wanting to know if this is worth it down the road, the answer is yes! The only negative I have is the loss of my close-up vision. I had worn glasses for distance since the seventh grade. Slightly OCD, I was very aware of my frames in my field of vision. I would frequently look... READ MORE

I've been wanting to do this for a while and finding a Groupon for the procedure motivated me to go for it. The worst part - not being able to wear contacts for 3 weeks before surgery, but it was worth it! Had "watery" vision right after and halos around lights in dim light, but that subsided... READ MORE

Hi all, I did a lasik surgery in Lebanon from 6 when I was 18 years old. Before doing it I had -8 in the right eye and -9 in the left eye (myophe). Now after it I still don't see as I should, I have -7 in the right eye. And -6 in the left eye (myophe) I really don't know the reason, I did a... READ MORE

Recently in June is my birthday #8 to be without glasses. I wear them since my first grade until my 19 birthday and was the best thing in my life to be free of contacts and glasses. I'm now 27 and feel like the first day of my operation of course have consequences like dry eye but you should use... READ MORE

I got my Lasik done in KOP on November 2nd, 2012. , Dr. Chirag S.Shah was amazing! I had no pain at all, no burning, tearing or any discomfort after surgery as well. The only thing I didn't like is the waiting time between check in and actual surgery was about 2 hrs. During this period I started... READ MORE

Hi everyone! After being dragged to a consultation with my boyfriend, I found out that I'd be a great candidate for Lasik, while he was not. Since I was little I've always wanted the surgery, especially after my father underwent it when I was around 16 (I'm 22 now), but I was hesitant... READ MORE

The procedure is painless and quick. I was able to see 5 minutes after the surgery and had 20/20 vision the day after. I do have dry eyes but they are getting better as each day passes. My motivation was the fact that I wore glasses from when I was in 6th grade and slowly they had become a... READ MORE

I had LASIK (Wavefront) 8 years ago because my contacts dried my eyes out. Well fast forward to today, I woke up with cornea erosions all over my eyes. I was producing zero tears. Dry eye is a common side effect of LASIK that is sometimes permanent. What doctors won't tell you is how... READ MORE

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... READ MORE

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
