5 out of 5 stars LASIK
I had always thought laser eye correction was out of reach. My spouse had told me it wasn't and so I began to research different practices and procedures. I visited many offices, narrowed it down to three and then did some more research. One opthamologist who has solid reputation and a cornea specialist told me no way no how to lasik but he would consider PRK because of my cornea being so...
I could not be happier with my surgery. My parents were terrified of the idea of LASIK, which gave me all the more reason to choose the best surgeon I could possibly find. The procedure was quick and only mildly uncomfortable; this was because I already have unusually dry eyes. I made a quick, fun, step-by-step video of it here:
