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

I wanted to get LASIK because I wanted to be glasses-free for my wedding and I was also tired of dealing with prescription glasses/sunglasses. Sound eye and laser had a deal on LivingSocial, so I started doing my research. I was very worried about going forward with a discount LASIK surgery, but... READ MORE

No pain. No medical complications. No dry eye, halos or starbursts. No light sensitivity. Excellent (if not truly exceptional) surgeon. I just can't see anything clearly within 40 inches of my face. I think it is all about expectation. I was expecting to not need glasses. I went from... READ MORE

I would NOT do this again if I had the choice. I had to have monovision where they only work on one eye, and the although the procedure and healing were non-eventful, I think I actually would rather wear reading glasses. If you are considering Lasik for mono-vision, I implore you to wear... READ MORE

After alternating between glasses and lenses for the last 15 years, I finally went in for LASIK last week. My numbers weren't bad (about -2, both eyes), with the left eye improving by -0.5 in the last couple of years. I used to be a fan of wearing contact lenses earlier, and in fact often would...

I decided to undergo Lasik because I heard such great things about it and wanted to be rid of contacts and glasses. I am farsighted and have astigmatism so i had a bit of trouble seeing even with my glasses. I got Lasik 10 days ago. The procedure was painless and took about 10 minutes total for... READ MORE

I'm 48 wear contacts and also readers. My eye doc said if I got lasik I would still have to wear my readers but I found another doc that has some of "inlay" procedure to eliminate readers. Being in this business I know how consultations go and just wanted some feedback if anyone else has had... READ MORE

I had an excellent experience at Dr. Chynn's Laser Vision Center in NYC. Dr. Chynn is fixing extreme cases that no other surgeon in the U.S. let alone NYC can touch. Dr. Chynn can do this because of the no-flap LASEK technique he invented at Harvard. I flew in all the way from Bulgaria because... READ MORE

I had a mild myopia since I was 17. I tried contact lenses but got tired of the maintenance they required to avoid eye infections. I started wearing eyeglasses permanently (even prescribed sunglasses) in order to halt any progression of my myopia. I was able to keep my -1.50 (LE) and -0.5 (RE)... READ MORE

I didn't ever seriously consider LASIK due to the cost - I'd rather have spent the money on travel, as contact lenses weren't too much trouble for me (I hated wearing glasses though), however when my husband offered to pay I jumped at the opportunity. Today is Day 8 after LASIK. Everything is... READ MORE

I had Lasik 5 weeks ago and wanted to share my experiences with anyone going through it like I am. I'm not going to get into detail the actual procedure as plenty has been written on that but the after effects and remedy's I went through so far. I had my custom Wavefront Lasik performed by the... READ MORE

Best decision ever! My prescription was -3.75 and I had astigmatism. I wore contacts to go out only, because at work my eyes got super dry. I bought a GroupOn and got FABULOUS treatment (I know, crazy crazy me buying groupon for Lasik surgery). Everyone was friendly, helpful and accommodating... READ MORE

After struggling with contact lenses and glasses for 40+ years. I finally decided to get lasiik surgery. I did lot of research and opted to use Dr. Ross Parks at the Florida Eye Clinic in Kissimmee, Fl. I did call two of the larger Lasik centers in Orlando who advertise a lot on the radio.... READ MORE

I was highly myopic (-10) with astigmatism since I was young, 8, Surgery when I was 29. Had great results that lasted about 10 yrs. I am now a -3 to -3.5, so no matter what anyone says, it's not permanent. Everyone I know who had it more than 8yrs ago, has changed. Of course -3 is better than... READ MORE
