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

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

I have worn glasses since I was 10 years old, and have always hated wearing them at formal events, for sports, etc. I never found contacts comfortable so I only ever wore glasses. I wanted to get Lasik so that I could go about my active life and enjoy it! The next day, I could see better than I... READ MORE

Hi. I had a LASIK surgery on November 17. I had -7.5 degrees right eye and -6.75 left eye nearsightedness. The surgery was good, I had any problem. However, after one day I still wasn´t seeing well. On second day after surgery, I wake up seeing well, but after 40 min my vision reduced 80%. I ... READ MORE

Lasik is really beneficial.Eye is something which will make you confident if operation is perfectly done.So i personally recommend that person can go for it and see the world free of specs and contacts.After operation i am feeling more positive and still only my one eye is recovered fully .Left...

So Im 18 years old. The reason I've sought out lasik so young is my glasses and my contact lenses were causing me depression! Late last year I developed some sort of OCD towards my glasses. They were always to tight or too loose or wonky or I could feel them behind my ears(it didn't help that... READ MORE

Motivation: I have worn glasses since I was about 8 years old. I have always suffered from depth perception issues that I related to wearing glasses. I hoped to free myself of this and I also hoped to be able to wear sunglasses for outdoor activities. Pros: Not there yet. Will let you know when... READ MORE

I was terrified at first after reading all the reviews and the horror stories about complications, but after years of wearing contacts my eyes have finally won the battle and I can no longer wear contacts so my only options were glasses. As a fitness instructor and sports fanatic as well as... READ MORE

I have been wearing glasses/contacts since grade school. I wanted LASIK for many years but didn't have enough nerve to go for the free consultation until now. It was the best decision ever and I wish I had done it sooner! It has only been a week since my procedure and my eyes feel great. I... READ MORE
