The staff at the clinic is amazing and very professional and nice. I can see perfectly after surgery and it was so easy. I went in for a consult, saw the doctor and elected to have my surgery that same week. I resumed normal activity the next day and even went to dinner that same night of... READ MORE

I received Lasik a little over a week ago in January 2011. I had one eye done on one day; the next eye the next day. Within 24 hours of the procedure, I had 20/20 vision. It is AMAZING. The week of the procedure, I basically had at least one eye related appointment each day (sometimes... READ MORE

I had LASIK surgery on both eyes in April 2009 which resulted in perfect vision despite wearing lenses/glasses for 25 years. I was short-sighted, and could not even see the largest letter on the optician's chart without corrective lenses. I was given a small dose of valium prior to... READ MORE

The decision was made to correct one eye due to my vision. I was so shocked with being able to see so well, no blurry vision, colors were vivid. I was far sighted in one eye and near sighted in the other. I had a depth perception problem so skiing was difficult. I wish I hadn't waited so... READ MORE

I had -5.00 vision in both eyes. Contacts were getting less and less bearable, and glasses are a pain to deal with of course. I went to a couple of places, finally decided on the one that uses all laser for everything (flap cutting as well as the correction). They didn't pressure me at all,... READ MORE

I intend to go into astronomy, and as a physics major spend a lot of time in front of computers. Glasses are a hinderance, often get fogged up (it's Canada, it gets cold), and are generally smudged even if I remember to clean them regularly. Everyone who I mentioned I was thinking about...

Wanted to improve vision without contacts. I had Lasik done approximately 10 years ago with a guarantee for free touchups. When I called his office, this past summer, regarding blurry vision I was first told by his office they didn't guarantee. When I finally convinced her to pull my chart... READ MORE

I was 40 years of age. I was near sighted. I needed glasses for distance, such as, driving my car at night or going to the movies, or looking across the floor where I work to see who was calling me. I had an annoying habit of putting my glasses on and taking them off all the time just to see... READ MORE

I had contact strength of -7.0 and -7.25. I could not read any book more than 6" in front of me. I had horrible eye site my entire life, started wearing glasses at age 8 and I am 34 yrs old now. This is my experiences after having the lasik surgery. Day 1 of surgery at 11am 7/23/10: My... READ MORE

I am so happy with my LASIK surgery. I see better than with contacts or glasses even at night. It was a little painful on the first day, but afterwards it is amazing. I wore glasses since I was in grade school and switched to contacts around the age of 13. I love being able to see when I swim,... READ MORE

I had LASIK in 2004. I had small Rx and regular astigmatism. No major eye problems at all before the surgery. I was happy and just wanted to be less dependent on my glasses. I was 20 at the time of the surgery and my Dr. destroyed my eyesight. I had large pupils and dry eye, which are... READ MORE

I'm regretting this now and I had the surgery 2 weeks ago. My vision was 20/20 in one eye and 20/60 in the bad eye. The Dr. was positive/optimistic and said he could fix the other eye, no problem. I paid almost $1,000 to have no difference on distance and to lose my closeup vision! I have to... READ MORE

I had the Intralase iVISX custom/waverfront for -6.50 w/ some astigmatism. I used one the best surgeons in MN. I regret every day and wish I could go back to my contacts/glasses. My eyes are still dry after one year and sting all the time. I had an eye ulcler one year after surgery and realized... READ MORE

Cons: Eyes regressed from post-LASIK 20:15 and 20:20 to 20:80 and 20:200 within 6 months. Saw double in one eye and triple in the other. Require contact lenses and glasses, which are difficult to see with. Corneas were too steep for an enhancement, even though beforehand the doc said there'd... READ MORE

Nothing bad to report here. I can see now! My quality of life is so much better now and for a small price. I went in one day and by 24 hours I could see perfect. Keep in mind that I was told I'm in a somewhat rare group of people that have a thick cornea and am considered ideal because... READ MORE

The military did it for me for free. It's the best thing that ever happened to me since having my son. I have been tied down to contacts and glasses for so long. I'm finally free. The procedure took about one minute per eye and I could see 20/20 as soon as I sat up off the table. Healing... READ MORE

I have been wearing glasses from the time I was a small child. I got to the point where I was living in my extended wear lenses. I also had astigmatism. The Lasik changed my life. Yes I know it sounds dramatic, but It is true. I would have paid anything to get my sight to this. The procedure... READ MORE

I was so scared to get lasik. I read through every single review on here and I spoke to everyone I could regarding the surgery. There were many people who advocated it and many that did not. I suggest that when deciding wether or not to get the surgery, DO NOT go off of what people who have not... READ MORE

I first had lasik done on my left eye (20/100). The procedure was so simple and dramatic that I decided to do the other eye. In hind-sight, I wish I had done both at the same time. I was told to go home and go to bed but I spent hours starring at things in disbelief. My result is 20/15 in... READ MORE

My procedure was more expensive because of severe astigmatism. The tests before the procedure were simple, not much more invasive than a typical eye test. The procedure itself was totally painless and took less than 15 minutes total. I had my eye-flap incision done by laser as well,... READ MORE
