No More Glasses or Crappy Contacts! - Brecksville, OH

I was sick of wearing glasses and I could no longer wear contacts after being able to wear them for 13 years! It also cost so much money per year to keep buying contacts and glasses, so over the course of the next 4 years it will be well worth the investment. I will save money because I won't... READ MORE

Understand Your Risks - Columbus, OH

I had Lasik eye surgery done 6 months ago. I have been in chronic eye pain and discomfort since eye surgery.

I was a negative 10 in my left eye and a negative 9 in my right eye. It's been 7 years and one pregnancy since my LASIK surgery.

Great Choice, 10 Years Later - Kansas City, KS

Had Lasik eye surgery in 2002 in Kansas City. I was sick of contacts and glasses.

Lights aren't as sharp at night but it's really subtle - hardly... READ MORE

Not Worth the Complications I've Had and I'd Give Anthing to Go Back in Time So I Could Change my Mind. - Oklahoma City, OK

Anybody out there thinking about getting Lasik really needs to do much research before having the procedure done.

Recently Had Lasik - Reading, PA

Friday, Feb 11 2011, I had Lasik surgery on both eyes. The surgery was painless and the recovery was painless. The following day I had a follow up visit and the doc said everything was healing fine. I was not 20/20 and I had blurred vision. The rest of the weekend, there wasn't much... READ MORE

LASIK Was Expensive, Worthless for Me - Greensboro, NC

Following LASIK surgery, I could see 20/20 and was so excited as I was very very nearsighted. However, 5 years later, I am once again wearing contac lenses and glasses.
