Much Needed Lasik- New York, NY

Allergies prevented me from being able to wear contacts so I finally broke down and decided to have Lasik.

Had This Done when LASIK Was New--best Money I Ever Spent! Fairfax, VA

I had LASIK done in a mall clinic, of all things, where you could watch people get surgery while you ate your Mrs. Field's cookies. Not many alternatives then in Fairfax, Virginia, though, so I took the risk. Well, I was supposed to get 20/20 in both eyes (had astigmatism and moderate... READ MORE

31 Year Old Who's Contacts Started Bothering Her - Liverpool, NY

Just had my lasik done yesterday. I had advanced wavefront lasik which basically means blade-free. The procedure itself was pretty scary.
