LASIK Put Me on Disability - King of Prussia, PA

I had LASIK in 2004. I had small Rx and regular astigmatism. No major eye problems at all before the surgery. I was happy and just wanted to be less dependent on my glasses. I was 20 at the time of the surgery and my Dr. destroyed my eyesight. I had large pupils and dry eye, which are... READ MORE

Lasik Surgery on One Eye

I'm regretting this now and I had the surgery 2 weeks ago. My vision was 20/20 in one eye and 20/60 in the bad eye. The Dr. was positive/optimistic and said he could fix the other eye, no problem. I paid almost $1,000 to have no difference on distance and to lose my closeup vision! I have to... READ MORE

Eyesight Regressed Within Six Months After LASIK

Cons: Eyes regressed from post-LASIK 20:15 and 20:20 to 20:80 and 20:200 within 6 months. Saw double in one eye and triple in the other. Require contact lenses and glasses, which are difficult to see with. Corneas were too steep for an enhancement, even though beforehand the doc said there'd... READ MORE

Wonderful!

Nothing bad to report here. I can see now! My quality of life is so much better now and for a small price. I went in one day and by 24 hours I could see perfect. Keep in mind that I was told I'm in a somewhat rare group of people that have a thick cornea and am considered ideal because... READ MORE

I Love It - 20/20 As Soon As I Sat Up

The military did it for me for free. It's the best thing that ever happened to me since having my son. I have been tied down to contacts and glasses for so long. I'm finally free. The procedure took about one minute per eye and I could see 20/20 as soon as I sat up off the table. Healing... READ MORE

This Was the Best Thing I Have Ever Done for Myself

I have been wearing glasses from the time I was a small child. I got to the point where I was living in my extended wear lenses. I also had astigmatism. The Lasik changed my life. Yes I know it sounds dramatic, but It is true. I would have paid anything to get my sight to this. The procedure... READ MORE

Lasik is Amazing - I Now Have 20/15 Vision - California, CA

I was so scared to get lasik. I read through every single review on here and I spoke to everyone I could regarding the surgery. There were many people who advocated it and many that did not. I suggest that when deciding wether or not to get the surgery, DO NOT go off of what people who have not... READ MORE

A Lasik Story (W/video)

I first had lasik done on my left eye (20/100). The procedure was so simple and dramatic that I decided to do the other eye. In hind-sight, I wish I had done both at the same time. I was told to go home and go to bed but I spent hours starring at things in disbelief. My result is 20/15 in... READ MORE

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,... READ MORE

Lasik Correction - Best Thing Ever

I think my decision to get lasik correction was one of the best things I did. I am really funny when it comes to my eyes so I was always scared of the procedure. After watching a few videos online and talking to people the process still looked scary, but I was ready for it.The procedure took... READ MORE

Intralase Bladeless LASIK, 2 Years Later

Growing up, I had perfect vision - or so I had thought. One of my boyfriends in high school once commented to me, "Why do you always give me that mean face?" I laughed and asked him what he had meant by that. Apparently, I had gotten in the habit of squinting without realizing it... READ MORE

I am thrilled with my Lasik surgery, doctor and staff, and mono vision. I can read freeway signs and the tiny label under the mascara tube without contacts or glasses! READ MORE

I Love my New Eyes!

I was soooooo blind. The lasik completely changed my life! I have never been so happy. Whereas once i was blind, now i can see. Its the closest thing on this planet to a real-life miracle. There were no side-effects except slight starbursting around distant bright lights at night.I have had my... READ MORE

Lasik Does Not Work. Damaged my Eyes

The surgery was so unprofessional. the doctor was talking to his assistants the whole time like I wasn't even there, and made me feel like he wasn't even paying attention to me. My results were good initially but after a month it went down so much. The woman doctor who saw me after... READ MORE

I'm 22 and I've worn contacts since I was 11. - Love It! - Florida, FL

It's now just October and I had the Lasik back in May. I'm 22 and I've worn contacts since I was 11. Both my eyes were -2.75. I was nervous at first, but the actual procedure was quick and easy (about 10 minutes). I admit it was frightening because they were messing with your eyes, but it's... READ MORE

Lasik Review

I had been wearing glasses for more than 20 years, the degree was not very high but due to astimagtism, I need to wear glasses daily, from the time I wake up in the morning, till I go to bed at night.  Till Dec 08, I just noticed that the headache problem that I always has might due to...

Improved my Overall Quality of Life!

I had astigmatism before lasik surgery. I chose lasik because glasses gave me headaches & it was a pain to keep them cleaned and protected from scratches...plus it was annoying to switch from sunglasses to regular glasses when driving (I didn't have prescription sunglasses!). Contacts were... READ MORE

Sudden Haziness After Lasik

My vision was never terrible, just a minor script for shortsightedness, but I hated wearing glasses all the time. I'm hoping this is going to 'clear things up' for me.I had my lasik exactly two weeks ago. About two days after surgery my vision was crystal clear, at 2020. I did have bad dry eye... READ MORE
