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. 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

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

Best Decision of my Life - Saint John, NL

It’s been just shy of one year since my LASIK procedure, and like many others, I view it as one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life. As an active guy, I always despised my glasses.

LASIK Laser Eye Surgery - Auckland, NZ

I had laser eye surgery done when I was 19, once my eyesight had been stable for over 2 years. It was definitely worth it - I hated wearing glasses, contact lenses were expensive in the long term and painful if they rip while being worn. I had my surgery a few years ago now, and so remember...

40 Years, Active, Nearsighted, Astigmatism. New York, NY

The procedure itself was a breeze. Recovery was fine also. My reading is phenomenal now, prior I'd get headaches, tired and give up. Looking at my phone & computer prior the treatment lead to all sorts of neck & shoulder problems. I'd know I'd be doing it, I'd 'crane' my neck into an awkward... READ MORE

Best Thing I Have Ever Done! - Lawrenceville, GA

I don't remember exactly when I got it done but I wish I done it sooner! I wore contacts religiously and would wear each pair much longer than anyone was supposed.

Best Decision Ever! Draper, UT

I am 27-years-old now, and have had poor eye sight since 2nd grade. I always hated glasses and found contacts to be a time consuming and quite annoying in air-conditioned environments.

lasik is the most amazing thing ever! New Jersey, NJ

I pretty much wore glasses/contacts all my life as I am highly myopic ( about -900 and -1000, and my vision is a blur without glasses). I really hate wearing glasses so I only wear them around the house, and always wore contact lenses when I am out and about. Even though I loved wearing... READ MORE

Initially I went to the The LASIK Vision Institute (3200 Cobb Galleria Parkway Suite 105 Atlanta, Georgia 30339) because there was a corporate discount of 25%.

21 Years Old, Student, Got Done with a Lasik Surgery About 2 Months Ago

It was hard to wear glasses right from waking up to going back to sleep. Contact lenses were never really friends of mine, so I'm sure you understand how uncomfortable it got when I had to attend a party or any occasion and didn't have an option but wear glasses -_- So I finally went for it. I... READ MORE
