I wore glasses or contacts since I was ten. I was 31 in 2008 when I decided to have LASIK. The procedure itself was simple and easy. Some discomfort and dryness for a few weeks, then it didn't feel so bad. On a nice, clear day, my distance vision is amazing. MT corrected vision is 20/20... READ MORE

I got LASIK mostly because I finally had a vision plan that got me a discount on it. After wearing glasses for nearly 15 years, it was well worth it. Dr. P in Providence was fantastic. A little brisk, but with an attention to detail and precision that was exceptional. After meeting me only... READ MORE

I'm 24 and my vision originally was -9.00 and -9.25. Yes very bad lol. The procedure itself wasn't painful but uncomfortable. I automatically saw improvement when I got up from the surgical chair. But since I had just had eye surgery my eyes were very sensitive and blurry. The next... READ MORE

I was very, very nearsighted with terrible astigmatism in both eyes. I literally oculd not see my hand in front of my face. I had to put my glasses on to read my alarm clock 6 inches from my nose. My glasses were sooooo expensive (sometimes upwards of $500 a pair) and I needed new ones twice a... READ MORE

I wish I had done it sooner. I've worn glasses for over 20 years, and the total cost of glasses to exams, and contacts costs more than LASIK. It's worth it! I can see my alarm clock, the street signs when driving, and it's the greatest feeling. READ MORE

I am not sure how much I paid. It was not painful, very easy, great vision. I should have done it sooner. No problems what so ever!!! Did it over a weekend. READ MORE

I've been wearing glasses since age 4 with heavier & higher rx until 6 yrs ago at age 52. I had lasik done! One eye now "sees" distance the other "close". It's perfect for me. (My brain brings everything into focus, so it's not like I have to close one eye to... READ MORE

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
