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

Best Decision I Ever Made - Dallas, TX

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.

Something Unusual - New York

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...

My Epi Lasik Experience (18 Years Old) - Wetherby, UK

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.
