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

It's now almost 3 months since my PRK surgery. I have had significant visual loose, this greatly accentuated at night. My eyes constantly feel pain. Post surgery I was told I was an ideal candidate for the procedure. When I asked about risks, my doctor replied there's only temporary... READ MORE

This enhancement ruined my vision in my dominant left eye. Dr. Rimer was supposed to see me for my 1 week follow-up and she failed to show. Instead, I was seen by a tech who told me I could discontinue my post-surgery eye medications and did not stress any follow-up appointments. Also, Dr. Rimer... READ MORE

I went last week for my surgery, and there was complications with the 'flap creation.' I understand that these things happen, but I also think there should be some compensation for my time and effort if I should proceed with the procedure in the future. I was told today that they... READ MORE

Had intralase over 2 weeks ago. Had pretty bad dry eyes for about a week and now it's settling. It's amazing I can see now. I just think $6400 for 15 mins procedure is pretty pricy and on top of it, I need to spend extra hundreds on the eye drops (these preservative free drops are over... READ MORE

Freedom from glasses. You can find a million ways to appreciate not wearing glasses after this procedure. READ MORE

I couldn't see very well. I was -3 in my left eye, and -3.5 in my right. Without contacts in, or glasses on I couldn't see the alarm clock 2 feet away from me without squinting. I had the wavelength procedure done in summer of 2004. The surgery itself was less than 30 seconds on each... READ MORE

I got Lasik done over a year ago at the age of 25. I went back recently for a checkup, and one thing I learned is that the symptoms I am experiencing are from dry eyes. My eyes were already dry prior to the surgery which is why I could no longer wear contacts, so it is recommended with... READ MORE
