I think my decision to get lasik correction was one of the best things I did. I am really funny when it comes to my eyes so I was always scared of the procedure. After watching a few videos online and talking to people the process still looked scary, but I was ready for it.The procedure took... READ MORE

I was in Peru on vacation and before I went, I did research on doing LASIK there. As a caveat, I do speak proficient Spanish so I cannot describe what this would be like for a non-speaker.I understand that there are some clinics in Peru that specifically have services for Americans and people...

Growing up, I had perfect vision - or so I had thought. One of my boyfriends in high school once commented to me, "Why do you always give me that mean face?" I laughed and asked him what he had meant by that. Apparently, I had gotten in the habit of squinting without realizing it... READ MORE

I had my LASIK performed last July and I am so happy I finally did it. I have had corrected vision since I was 10 years old, and at 32 I no longer have to correct anything!My doctor was (and still is) wonderful, dedicated and methodical in his practice. I had the custom vue wavefront LASIK,... READ MORE

There were NO cons about this surgery. The results were immediate and amazing. I LOVE being able to wake up and see without having to fuss with glasses or contacts. Highly recommended. READ MORE

I did lasik to get my vision corrected. The technology used was wavefront lasik technology. I got the treatment done on 8th January 2010. The treatment was relatively painless.I had lasik treatment (using wavefront) in both my eyes and its been 10 days. I sometimes get temporary blurred vision... READ MORE

I am thrilled with my Lasik surgery, doctor and staff, and mono vision. I can read freeway signs and the tiny label under the mascara tube without contacts or glasses! READ MORE

I was soooooo blind. The lasik completely changed my life! I have never been so happy. Whereas once i was blind, now i can see. Its the closest thing on this planet to a real-life miracle. There were no side-effects except slight starbursting around distant bright lights at night.I have had my... READ MORE

The surgery was so unprofessional. the doctor was talking to his assistants the whole time like I wasn't even there, and made me feel like he wasn't even paying attention to me. My results were good initially but after a month it went down so much. The woman doctor who saw me after... READ MORE

I had lasik done when i was 19 so it would be easier. I now have halos around all lights, making night driving extremely difficult. My eyes are very dry. my distance vision was 20/15 after surgery, and now I can tell it is starting to go downhill again.and now my near vision is starting to... READ MORE

It's now just October and I had the Lasik back in May. I'm 22 and I've worn contacts since I was 11. Both my eyes were -2.75. I was nervous at first, but the actual procedure was quick and easy (about 10 minutes). I admit it was frightening because they were messing with your eyes, but it's... READ MORE

I had been wearing glasses for more than 20 years, the degree was not very high but due to astimagtism, I need to wear glasses daily, from the time I wake up in the morning, till I go to bed at night.  Till Dec 08, I just noticed that the headache problem that I always has might due to... READ MORE

I had astigmatism before lasik surgery. I chose lasik because glasses gave me headaches & it was a pain to keep them cleaned and protected from scratches...plus it was annoying to switch from sunglasses to regular glasses when driving (I didn't have prescription sunglasses!). Contacts were... READ MORE

My vision was never terrible, just a minor script for shortsightedness, but I hated wearing glasses all the time. I'm hoping this is going to 'clear things up' for me.I had my lasik exactly two weeks ago. About two days after surgery my vision was crystal clear, at 2020. I did have bad dry eye... READ MORE

I have been told by doctor before lasik surgoy that it is simple , it will take one minute.. but in fact it was 25 mintues with subconjunctival heamorrhage for more than one week,My question : As you know there are different types of lasik surgery and different costs, how I will be sure or I...

I have been in glasses since a little girl. My eyesight was 20/400 in both eyes with one astigmatism. My pupils were juuuuuuust on the brim of needing the upper scale procedure to prevent haloing. I trusted the dr when he said the halo would be minimal and it has been. The only side effect... READ MORE

I am so glad I finally made the decision to have Lasik correction. I had researched this procedure even back in the day when it was only experimental. I attended a lecture where they were looking for volunteers to do the procedure on, problem is back them they would only do one eye at at time,... READ MORE

Unintended consequences: One eye now smaller than the other which I am told, after the fact, is 'part of the aging process' and due to dry eyes, which I never had before operation.Before operation, eyes were beautiful and best feature. This 'aging process' never bothered me up til the day I had... READ MORE

Prior to my surgery, I was extremely nearsighted. In fact, if my glasses fell of the nightstand during the night, I had trouble finding them again without calling for someone to help. I'd been in glasses since elementary school, and contact lenses since high school. Because of long work hours,... READ MORE

The best thing is not having to look for my glasses in the morning or mad at myself for falling asleep with my contacts on!it was a painless procedure and the only thing was being uncomfortable with how dried my eyes were for 2 weeks and no rubbing but the drops took care of them as they healed...
