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

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
