I highly recommend this procedure! I had an overall great experience and mild pain. I had the surgery at 2pm and the overall process took less than 10 minutes. My waters stung and watered on the way home. As soon as I got home I laid down and played an audiobook and napped for 5 hours. I got up... READ MORE

Had a consultation and my opthamologist said I have scratches on my corneas from long term contact lens usage with dry eyes. I've been wearing clear soft contacts for about 15 years. I haven't been the best about changing them out and sometimes go 3 to 4 months on one pair of lenses. I do... READ MORE

A few days ago, I went to a consultation for laser eye surgery at Herzig Eye Institute. I went through a number of tests, most of them with an optometrist. The consultation included a standard eye exam, as well as some other procedures that I’ve never been through. I would say the strangest... READ MORE

My vision is now 5% better than a perfect natural human eye. I can see extremely well in the day. I've lost a bit of my night vision and I have a bit more halos at night, but not enough to annoy me for both of these negative side effects. TransPRK eye surgery is the best decision I've ever made... READ MORE

I had a -3.00 prescription in both eyes with mild astigmatism in one eye. I've wanted LASIK pretty much since I started wearing glasses when I was in high school, and when my prescription stabilized enough (it took over 10 years), I went in for an evaluation and found out my corneas were oddly...

Im am 22 years old have a -3.00 prescription in both eyes.I have worn glasses since 4th grade and contacts/glasses since junior high.for the past three years I have been wanting to get the procedure done because my contacts sometimes bothered me and I didn't like my appearance in glasses. I... READ MORE

Having worn eyeglasses for nearsightedness since I was 15, at 32 I was needing them just to read a book on the table! I was very afraid of lasik, as the flap may create weak spots in the cornea, and I'm a person that has itchy eyes and in constant need of wiping. The doctor did all kinds of... READ MORE

I had a moderate prescription (-3.5) both eyes. I had worn contacts for 22 years. I had every complication imaginable with contacts. Major infections with ulcers, dry eyes etc... At my last exam for contacts I was told that "dailies" were my last option. That lasted about 8 months and I then... READ MORE

I had PRK done in both eyes four months ago for a very slight correction (-1.25 and -1.50 + slight astigmatism). I had sharp vision when corrected with glasses, but had a hard time with contacts. I decided to have the surgery after finding out my husbands company would pay 100 % of the cost. ... READ MORE

To start, I decided to write a review about my experience because that is what made me come to my surgery. I read tons of reviews about lasik and prk surgeries and decided I would make a consultation to see if I was a candidate. At my initial appointment I was told that everything looked perfect...

Pre procedure I went to Millennium Laser Eye center in Florida for my free consultation and after all the tests were done I was told that I am not a Lasik candidate since my cornea is too thin. PRK was the option for me if I wanted to undergo laser vision correction. My prescription was -2 in... READ MORE

I am 46 and have been wearing glasses since I was 3. If you can any kind of math it has been a long time. I started wearing Contacts when I was 14 and it has been over 32 years. My last few annual appointments my doc said I was showing signs of damage from being such a long time contact lens... READ MORE

My PRK Experience – March 2014 Hello everybody. I thought that I’d write a commentary with subsequent updates to help others with their process in deciding upon PRK or LASIK surgery given that I found other commentaries rather helpful in my process. The only struggle that I had was finding... READ MORE

I wore glasses starting in first grade. Well, I was prescribed them in first grade but didn't wear them for a year. Finally got contacts at age 20! They always felt so dry though, and I would take them out as soon as I got home. I wanted lasik for a few years but always had a fear that I would... READ MORE

Finally after waiting for almost 5 years since my last turn down for Lasik I did a google search and found Dr. Motwani in La Jolla after reading about him having one of the most advanced lasers in San Diego, I got in contact with his office. The process was quick and they took a chance on me... READ MORE

This is my 2nd operation. I had my first PRK operation in Moscow, Russia in year 2000. My eyesight back then was -9.5. I was 20 years old and was advised to wait to make sure the eyesight stopped deteriorating. I didn’t want to wait and had the operation anyway. For about 5 years I had good... READ MORE

I wasn't a good candidate for LASIK as I have dry eyes and have already been using restasis for the past 1-1/2 years. Day of surgery was fine. Took a little longer on my right eye(they said my epithelium was "sticky"). Immediately after I sat up and noticed I could see clear as ever. Went home... READ MORE

I had PRK done on August 2 2013. I was told that the recovery was slightly longer than with lasik and that it would feel like there was a dirty contact in your eye for the first3 to 5 days. Hum... I don't think so. My husband had lasik 2 years ago and had eye burning for the first few days. ... READ MORE

Had my PRK custom front wave surgery done on both eyes beginning of June. The surgery was quick and absolutely painless. I did not have pain at any point afterwards, not even the predicted feeling of scratchy eyes from the contacts. They felt fine all the way. I am healing super good and after... READ MORE

I wasn't able to get Lasik so I opted to get PRK and I'm glad that I did. PRK is older technology but actually gets better results because your lens grows back not like in Lasik where they essentially chop it off and hope it heals back where it is meant to. My vision wasn't even all that bad I... READ MORE
