I Can See! - Vancouver, WA

I have worn glasses pretty much my whole life. I changed to contacts way back and have always had issues with them, from not fitting properly to bad prescription, to changing to gas permiables.

Much Easier Than Expected! - Fargo, ND

My LASIK experience has been great. The worst part was having to wear my glasses for 3 weeks prior to the surgery (I'm used to my contacts). I arrived at 11 am the day of the surgery.

Lasik at 22 Years of Age. The Good and the Bad - Buffalo, NY

My vision was never in the negatives, I did not have any astigmatism or eye diseases. It was a little worse than 20/40, but wearing glasses and contacts was the most annoying thing ever to me .

Been 1 Year Since my LASIK Procedure - California, CA

Since it's actually been around one year since I went through LASIK eye surgery, I thought about sharing my overall experience.

LASIK - 7 Years Later - Nashville, TN

I was 24 when I had LASIK done on both eyes. I was nearsighted with a slight astigmatism in one eye.

I Can See Clearly Now! - Lake Mary, FL

Signed in for my surgery, was given a valium. About 30 min. later I was called back and given some numbing eye drops, Dr. Dempsey cut the flap, walked down the hall and Dr. Filutowski finishes the procedure. While the laser was firing to remove corneal tissue it smelled like burning chicken... READ MORE

Lasik Surgery at Dr Braverman Messed Up my Vision, Choose Carefully - Miami FL

I had surgery done at Dr Braverman in August 2013. My eyes were not too bad when I started, now I struggle to pass the DMV eye tests which I never did before.
