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

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

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

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

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

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

I won't get into the long and complicated saga of my vision history, but the basic facts that relate to my eyes and why I'm deciding to get LASIK 1. I have astigmatism that require toric lenses to see clearly with 2. I also have dry eye syndrome which left me with GPC (giant papillary... READ MORE

I went in not being able to see more than 3 feet in front of me. I couldn't see street signs, etc. I could read just fine without any reading glasses. After surgery, I now need reading glasses, which is also normal for my age but coincidentally happened the day after surgery, but I'm fine with... READ MORE

I have been wearing glasses and contacts since i was 7 years old, and finally at 40 decided to take the plunge and get my lasik done. I have always been curious, but because watching too many youtube videos showing doctors cutting corneal flaps with a blade, i always chickened out. Fast... READ MORE

I have been wearing glasses for as long as I remember. I don't remember a time I was not wearing glasses. Get teased as 4 eye durings my grade school. I've worn contacts but now my eyes are getting intolerant. They dry out and my eyes get red. Now that I am working, I spend alot of time... READ MORE

After years of being nearsighted and not being able to tell a person from a tree I decided to give LASIK a shot. I made an appointment for a Pre LASIK exam, which took about 90 minutes of testing and meeting with Dr Caster to figure out what would be right for me. I must say I am so happy I did... READ MORE

Just had my lasik done yesterday. I had advanced wavefront lasik which basically means blade-free. The procedure itself was pretty scary. The worst part was the part where they were removing the flap. There is a lot of pressure and everything goes black. Once that is over the laser part is easy.... 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. The place is my insurance would give a discount to reburied sketchy so I went to TLC center in Westchester Illinois with Dr... READ MORE

Got sick and tired of glasses, and contacts were uncomfortable to me. I've been wanting to get Lasik for about 16 years, and was finally able to. The procedure itself... The only part that was actually very uncomfortable was when the doctor attached the "cone" to my eye to cut the flap. The... READ MORE

So I had my lasik done 3 weeks ago.. The first few days everything was perfect vision wise. - I was seeing 20/20 and 20/15 the next day which is better than perfect. Then almost about a week after the procedure I started having severe dryness and even eyedrops didn't alleviate anything. The... READ MORE

Best decision of my life. Went from around a -4 in both eyes, astigmatism in one eye, to even better vision than when I had glasses. Surgeon was absolutely calming and answered all my questions. Quick healing process, quick surgery (seriously felt like ten minutes), pretty painless. Would... READ MORE

It is nearly 2 weeks after my LASIK surgery. My vision is good, not crisp with minor haziness. Improvement is there but slowly. Prior to surgery I had -8.00 and -8.50 Dioptre. Upon my first post op check up Dr says my vision is better than with contacts before. Evenings my head and eyes are... READ MORE

Hi, I had the lasik on 1/7/16, not really a successful one as the surgeon first began with my right eye and after working on it for 10-15 minutes he told me that they cannot conduct laser on my eye right now as they are dry so they just put a lens on my right eye and told me that they will take...

Hi Everyone, Hope you all are doing great. I was planning for Lasik surgery since last two years and finally last month (on 23rd Dec 2015) gone for customized lasik in my city. I was bit confused as there are lots of techniques available in market like normal lasik, customized, smile, relex etc... READ MORE
