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

After having an accident that made me lose some of my eye sight, my doctors added Lasik eye surgery to my list of surgeries. I didn't do it for a cosmetic reason, but more of a survival reason. I recommend Lasik Eye Surgery to everyone! I remember counting to 10 and then it being over. I... READ MORE

Could not use contacts any longer as my eyes were too dry. It has been a couple of weeks since the Lasik and my eyesight is almost perfect, and keeps getting better! READ MORE

Lasik is one of the best things I could've done. Although I have to mention the first day is the hardest!!! I went in to surgery the only thing uncomfortable was the clamp used to hold your eye open, didn't like that at all. My eyes kind of went dark so i didn't see the doctor coming... READ MORE

My brother had it in South Africa in the 90s when it was very new. He gave rave reviews and now so do I even 10 years later. I was in my 40s so they recommended the monovision, where they under-correct one eye so you can do without reading glasses a few more years. The nurses told me I would... READ MORE

Loved it I was so nervous the sacriest part was making the appointment. I was worried I would blink and mess it up. No need to worry! I had the Intralase done for the flap and it was such a piece of cake. And the Lasik portion was even easier. I don't know why it took me so long to do!... READ MORE
