Worth Every Cent - Wish I Had It Done Sooner (Severe Astigmatism)

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, apparently you have a choice of having it done by laser or by hand. The laser costs more but is more exact.

They gave me some eyedrops and a valium while I was waiting in sort of a prep room. Then about half and hour later I went into the first laser room for the flap incision, probably less than 3 minutes later I was off to the next laser room for the actual procedure.

My husband drove me home where I slept for several hours. I woke up with blurry but improved vision. The next morning my vision was less blurry and more improved. I was able to go to work. Within less than a week I was at 20/40 whereas before I was 20/400.

Five years later I'm at 20/70. I use glasses to drive and at movie theatres. My glasses are much less expensive than before because I barely have any astigmatism now. I highly recommend the procedure.

The doctor's office was professional, clean, efficient, everything you'd want. The staff was kind. Overall a great experience. Also, my doctor is quite cute, not that it matters, but it doesn't hurt either.
