Blurred vision for Lasik Enhancement. Doctor was a "No-Show" for 1 week Post-surgical Follow-up. - Littleton, CO

This enhancement ruined my vision in my dominant left eye. Dr. Rimer was supposed to see me for my 1 week follow-up and she failed to show. Instead, I was seen by a tech who told me I could discontinue my post-surgery eye medications and did not stress any follow-up appointments. Also, Dr. Rimer... READ MORE

Failed Attempt - Halifax, NS

I went last week for my surgery, and there was complications with the 'flap creation.' I understand that these things happen, but I also think there should be some compensation for my time and effort if I should proceed with the procedure in the future. I was told today that they... READ MORE

Had Intralase on 9/8/11

Had intralase over 2 weeks ago. Had pretty bad dry eyes for about a week and now it's settling. It's amazing I can see now. I just think $6400 for 15 mins procedure is pretty pricy and on top of it, I need to spend extra hundreds on the eye drops (these preservative free drops are over... READ MORE

Lasik - Wavelength Procedure - Bellevue, WA

This reviewer is affiliated with RealSelf. The views expressed here are their own and do not reflect the views of RealSelf, Inc. I couldn't see very well. I was -3 in my left eye, and -3.5 in my right. Without contacts in, or glasses on I couldn't see the alarm clock 2 feet away from me without... READ MORE

Certainly Better Than Contacts - California

I got Lasik done over a year ago at the age of 25. I went back recently for a checkup, and one thing I learned is that the symptoms I am experiencing are from dry eyes. My eyes were already dry prior to the surgery which is why I could no longer wear contacts, so it is recommended with... READ MORE

Thank You, Lasik! - Miami, FL

After having an accident that made me lose some of my eye sight, my doctors added Lasik eye surgery to my list of surgeries. I didn't do it for a cosmetic reason, but more of a survival reason. I recommend Lasik Eye Surgery to everyone! I remember counting to 10 and then it being over. I... READ MORE

My Experience - Could not use contacts any longer as my eyes were too dry - Plano, TX

Could not use contacts any longer as my eyes were too dry. It has been a couple of weeks since the Lasik and my eyesight is almost perfect, and keeps getting better! READ MORE

Splendid - Texas

Lasik is one of the best things I could've done. Although I have to mention the first day is the hardest!!! I went in to surgery the only thing uncomfortable was the clamp used to hold your eye open, didn't like that at all. My eyes kind of went dark so i didn't see the doctor coming... READ MORE

LASIK in 2001 - Salt Lake City, UT

My brother had it in South Africa in the 90s when it was very new. He gave rave reviews and now so do I even 10 years later. I was in my 40s so they recommended the monovision, where they under-correct one eye so you can do without reading glasses a few more years. The nurses told me I would... READ MORE

Well Worth It - Utah

Loved it I was so nervous the sacriest part was making the appointment. I was worried I would blink and mess it up. No need to worry! I had the Intralase done for the flap and it was such a piece of cake. And the Lasik portion was even easier. I don't know why it took me so long to do!... READ MORE

Ruined my Night Vision - Medford, OR

I wore glasses or contacts since I was ten. I was 31 in 2008 when I decided to have LASIK. The procedure itself was simple and easy. Some discomfort and dryness for a few weeks, then it didn't feel so bad. On a nice, clear day, my distance vision is amazing. MT corrected vision is 20/20... READ MORE

20/20 Vision the Next Day

I got LASIK mostly because I finally had a vision plan that got me a discount on it. After wearing glasses for nearly 15 years, it was well worth it. Dr. P in Providence was fantastic. A little brisk, but with an attention to detail and precision that was exceptional. After meeting me only... READ MORE

Still Unsure of my Decision - Orlando, FL

I'm 24 and my vision originally was -9.00 and -9.25. Yes very bad lol. The procedure itself wasn't painful but uncomfortable. I automatically saw improvement when I got up from the surgical chair. But since I had just had eye surgery my eyes were very sensitive and blurry. The next... READ MORE

6 Years out and Still Better Than 20/20! - Appleton, WI

I was very, very nearsighted with terrible astigmatism in both eyes. I literally oculd not see my hand in front of my face. I had to put my glasses on to read my alarm clock 6 inches from my nose. My glasses were sooooo expensive (sometimes upwards of $500 a pair) and I needed new ones twice a... READ MORE

LASIK 2 Year Ago - Bay Area, CA

I wish I had done it sooner. I've worn glasses for over 20 years, and the total cost of glasses to exams, and contacts costs more than LASIK. It's worth it! I can see my alarm clock, the street signs when driving, and it's the greatest feeling. READ MORE

Should Have Done It Sooner - Irving, TX

I am not sure how much I paid. It was not painful, very easy, great vision. I should have done it sooner. No problems what so ever!!! Did it over a weekend. READ MORE

Lasik Definitely Worth It! - Pennsylvania

I've been wearing glasses since age 4 with heavier & higher rx until 6 yrs ago at age 52. I had lasik done! One eye now "sees" distance the other "close". It's perfect for me. (My brain brings everything into focus, so it's not like I have to close one eye to... READ MORE

Amazing - The Woodlands, TX

The staff at the clinic is amazing and very professional and nice. I can see perfectly after surgery and it was so easy. I went in for a consult, saw the doctor and elected to have my surgery that same week. I resumed normal activity the next day and even went to dinner that same night of... READ MORE

I Love Seeing 20/20 - Oklahoma City, OK

I received Lasik a little over a week ago in January 2011. I had one eye done on one day; the next eye the next day. Within 24 hours of the procedure, I had 20/20 vision. It is AMAZING. The week of the procedure, I basically had at least one eye related appointment each day (sometimes... READ MORE
