30Yr Old Hair Stylist No Kids Houston. Sugarland, TX

I had Lasik done at the Mann Eye Institute in Sugarland, TX 2 days ago! And thus far I couldn't be happier! Easiest thing ever! Whole procedure for both eyes lasted 8 mins and I could see immediately after! At first it was a little fuzzy around the edges but very very mildly, everyday it... READ MORE

My LASIK Journey//29 Years Old, Have Worn Glasses/Contacts for 20 Years. - Denver, CO

I stumbled across this website after googling "Is LASIK Safe?" "LASIK reviews" "LASIK FAQ" hours before my surgery. It is presently 01:48 Mountain time and my appointment is scheduled for at 10:00. After reading horror story after horror story, perusing the "LASIK Complications" website and... READ MORE

Tired of Waking Up Blind Every Morning - Lawrenceville, GA

I got glasses when I was 7. It was revolutionary, I remember looking around in wonder as my Dad drove me home from picking them up. I had never known you could see the leaves on the trees from a distance before, I thought everyone simply saw an amorphous fuzz of green. At 11 my prescription... READ MORE

8-9-2012 - Ontario, CA

I have wanted to do LASIK for awhile, but recently it's really been something I want done. We are going on a Cruise in October, so a few months ago I gave myself a goal to have it done before then. I can hardly wait to wear all the cute sunglasses, and watch tv in bed without my glasses on. Oh... READ MORE

A Year Later, Love It! - Amarillo, TX

They tell you it will feel like getting soap in your eye, which it does, but they don't tell you that it feels like getting soap in your eye and can't wash it out. The whole procedure lasted less than 20 minutes. I'd suggest asking for extra numbing drops throughout for more comfort because they... READ MORE

Tired of Contact Lenses!!! But a Little Scared of LASIK... :-/ - Seattle, WA

I'm 28 years old, and have been wearing contacts for almost half my life. I started wearing contacts when I was about 13 years old. I was not a very responsible lens wearer, as one might expect of a teenager. My parents suggested that I wear glasses, but I was pretty strong willed and did NOT... READ MORE

Scared to Death of LASIK Pre-Op - Elated Post-Op - Rochester, NY

My LASIK procedure is scheduled for 9/3/13 - and I am scared senseless after reading the material that was given to me. I am 26 and have been in glasses for 8 years. My prescription has been stable for 5 years (currently -1.50 in the right eye and -1.75 in the left). I read through the risks of... READ MORE

Love Not Having Glasses or Contacts! - Chesterfield, MO

I went to TLC in Chesterfield Mo. My husband had it done a year prior. He too enjoys his results! I had worn glasses since I was 5 and couldn't see without them, 26 years was long enough! My left eye has always been lazy but was corrected a lot, not perfect but I knewrecommend it towouldn't... READ MORE

The Best Decision of my Life

Wavelight Allegretto Laser surgery was the best decision I ever made.  I was scared and hesitant about having the procedure at first.  Being dependent on glasses and contacts left me feeling disabled.  I never thought my eyes were capable of seeing so clear, it was like a miracle... READ MORE

ROI of Lasik - Kennewick, WA

Five years ago, if I spread my hand out, and touched my thumb to my nose, I couldn't see my pinkie. I couldn't see the time for the clock, let alone the trees for the forest. I was 21 when I had Lasik: an early bird in some sense, but my wretched pinkie vision gracefully hadn't... READ MORE

Lasik Saved my Job - San Diego, CA

I have been dependent on glasses or contacts to see as I suffered from an astigmatism for 20 years. As a television sports reporter, my job is to SEE the action. Whether it's a homerun, a touchdown or the scoreboard, it seemed like the further away those things were, the more difficult it became... READ MORE

A Step-by-step Video of my LASIK Procedure!

I could not be happier with my surgery. My parents were terrified of the idea of LASIK, which gave me all the more reason to choose the best surgeon I could possibly find. The procedure was quick and only mildly uncomfortable; this was because I already have unusually dry eyes. I made a... READ MORE

LASIK Monovision After Years Wearing Contact for Reading

I have been wearing a contact lens in my right eye for reading for about 30 years. During my last eye exam I was told my my ophthalmologist that I was very lucky not to have had any major infection in my eye since I wore my soft contact for 3-4 weeks at a time without removing it. He strongly... READ MORE

I had the Smile/Relex (essentially small incision lasik) procedure about a month ago. I feel I owe a review of my procedure and progress, considering the number of forums I have read for support over the past month. Across the span of 4 weeks I have had the full spectrum of emotions on the... READ MORE

I chose LASIK because about 10 hrs into a 12hr shift, I couldn't make out numbers or see well enough to to drive home without applying eye drops on a near continuous basis.

Got Monovision Lasik done to kick the glasses and contacts to the curve

It is going good with some mild pains and aches depending when my eye gets tired or is dry. The surgery itself was fast and I experienced no problems. The aftercare for my eyes is a little more intense than what I expected. I work in front of computers and now in week 3, I still experience my... READ MORE

Five Years Post-Op: Wearing glasses and needing Restatis...should have saved my money!

My results were just as expected the first year or so . . . I was so delighted!! But then, I noticed that my close-in vision was going bad very fast. Then I noticed my astigmatism coming back. Now, five years post-op, I need glasses again to see clearly, for near and distant vision. If you... READ MORE
