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.

LASIK Experience at LASIKPlus. Towson, MD

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.

So Much Happier Without Glasses! - Seattle, WA

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.

When in Doubt - DON'T - Pleasanton, CA

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

Mono-Vision Lasik Procedure - Houston, TX

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.

33 Years Old Tired of Wearing Glasses - Miami, FL

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.

39 Yr Female. Caucasion, Shortsighted -3.5 Both (Blue) Eyes, Slight Astigmatism - Brisbane, AU

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
