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.

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 Done in my Late 30's. Williamsburg, VA

I've worn glasses since I was in grade school. Astigmatism made it unbearable. Glasses slid down my face, just making daily activities irritating. As a teen, got contacts. So, more freedom but the hassle of cleaning, expense of purchasing and sometimes infection. I did quite a bit of research on... READ MORE

At 30 yrs old, I was tired of always scrambling to find my glasses in the morning and contacts just didn't work for me.

Thinking About Lasik - Russia, RU

My vision has fallen sharply in 13 years. Less is not very big - only minus 1.5. I wore glasses is not always just to see what is written on the board (in school and university) and to watch TV. In principle, this is not bothered me. This is such a negative in which you can walk without glasses... READ MORE
