I had Intralase Lasik completed just a few days ago. My experience with surgery and the aftermath would require me to recommomend it to everyone.The surgery was virtually painless. My eyes are only remotely dry, which is where any moisturizing eye drops will come in handy. My vision is 20/20... READ MORE

I had lasik just 1 day ago. The surgery was uncomfortable for me but not painful. The surgery lasted around 15 minutes and you could see. Your eyes are burning for a couple of hours after. After that slight discomfort on occassion. I just had it done so I can't comment on anything long term. READ MORE

I went to the best Dr. I could find after weeks and weeks of research. Dr. in Houston was fantastic! He explained that the halos come from not correcting the entire area of the eye that dilates. He dilated my eyes twice during one month because female cycles can affect that. I would... READ MORE

The procedure was simpler than I expected. I had a wavefront scan so that the doctor could better shape my corneas. I saw one of the top 100 surgeons in the country and it was worth it.The entire procedure took approximately 10 minutes for both eyes and I felt no pain during the procedure. ... READ MORE

I'm 32 and had Lasik about two years ago. I'm now have 20/20 vision and am very happy. My prescription was -4.0 in both eyes with slight astigmatism. I'd worn glasses and soft contacts since age 16. It's so great to wake up in the morning and be able to see everything! I had standard Lasik... READ MORE

I had Lasik eight years ago in 2001. Best thing I have every done!! Totally happy with it. Before I was so near sighted clear vision stopped 24" from my nose. I had worn hard contacts for about 15 years because of a stigmatism. In prepping for Lasik I wore glasses or soft contacts for... READ MORE

This was the best money I have ever spent. I hated wearing glasses and they cost me a fortune. I was forever changing them and having optical lenses put into designer sunglasses. I liked contact lenses but they kept splitting and that cost me even more. I had this done around eight years ago and... READ MORE

I had the new custom LASIK surgery. I can now see better than when I wore my contact lenses. I used the best surgeon, the same as advertised that Tiger Woods used. I then referred my friend and my sister to the same surgeon. They also both had excellent results. I also have no halos at night... READ MORE

My doctor was great and I think the doctor makes the experience what it is. It's a scary procedure, and there is discomfort at first, but if you follow the aftercare, it's short lived and worth it. I wanted to be able to wake up and see the clock, or be able to tell if that black spot on the... READ MORE

I had Lasik surgery in 1999 by a doctor who had done 50,000 surgeries and seemed knowledgeable. He told me being out of my gas perm. contacts for 3.5 weeks would be enough time for my eyes to relax prior to surgery. I have since learned that for every decade you are in gas perm/hard contacts,... READ MORE

I had Lasik done about 5-6 years ago and am so happy with the results.  I am now in my forties and have had bad eyesight since childhood with over -5 in each eye.  I had researched this for YEARS before making the decision to go through with it.  I actually would interview... READ MORE

I had recently had lasik out my eyes feel like they have been burnt, as if I have been staring at a bright welding rod all day. I have pain when I sleep as well but its the worst when I am trying to read or working on the computer. Eyes don'y seem to want to work together. I'm worried that I... READ MORE

There are some very important things to remember when getting Lasik.  I had my surgery 5 years ago (at age 27), my eye sight is still 20/20.  As a mom, it is SO nice to not have to reach for my glasses during a 4 am feeding, or have to put contacts into bloodshot eyes after being up... READ MORE

Pros I can actually see street signs in the day and night time. I don't have to wear or keep up with eye wear. Most importantly, I feel safer because of better vision. I no longer squint all day when trying to look at something or someone. I Can finally judge distances between... READ MORE

I had LASIK at 21 as a graduation gift. My vision was pretty bad, I needed contacts or glasses everyday. Because I did not have a consistent eye doctor, I only did the consultation with the LASIK doctors. Make sure you meet with an optometrist or an ophthalmologist to ask their opinion! My... READ MORE

I went in for Lasik surgery on Feb. 12. I have had 20/20 vision since that day with no problems whatsoever! The staff is friendly and helpful and my husband was able to watch the procedure in a waiting room on a television. READ MORE

I have wanted to have my eyes corrected for many years but have been afraid of the risks and the possible pain. The staff educated me on the differences between PRK, Lasek and Lasik. Prior to the procedure, I had a full exam, I was not a suitable candidate for Lasik but I was for Lasek. The... READ MORE

I did my lasik in 2003. Before my prescription was 4.25 L - 4.50 R and both eyes had stigmatism for 2.75  I have needed glasses since I was 9 or 10.  Lasik is a big relief.  I wanted to do it earlier, but my ex boss (optometrist) insisted that I should wait till I was... READ MORE

I had lasik surgery 3 years ago and it is the best investment you can ever make. I started using glasses because I couldnt see the black board in college from far and immediatly purchased contacts. I used contacts for about 5 years before building the courage to do the surgery.  I was... READ MORE

I had my Lasik eye surgery performed in 2001. I don't remember what my prescription was before hand, I just remember that I required corrective lenses 24/7. I couldn't see much of anything without them. I also had astigmatism in both eyes which was corrected with the Lasik procedure. The... READ MORE
