Wavefront LASIK, also called custom LASIK, is a more precise method of correcting vision than conventional LASIK. Wavefront LASIK uses a 3-D map of your eye to reshape the surface for a precise, individualized vision correction.

Finally Got the Courage to Get Lasik at 40. Las Vegas, NV

I have been wearing glasses and contacts since i was 7 years old, and finally at 40 decided to take the plunge and get my lasik done.

31 Year Old Who's Contacts Started Bothering Her - Liverpool, NY

Just had my lasik done yesterday. I had advanced wavefront lasik which basically means blade-free. The procedure itself was pretty scary. The worst part was the part where they were removing the flap. There is a lot of pressure and everything goes black. Once that is over the laser part is easy.... READ MORE

LASIK Has Changed the World Around Me - Vancouver, WA

I would absolutely recommend LASIK. But only if it's Wave-front and Intra-lase. The removal of my astigmatism and other vision artifacts has been such a dramatic change that it reminds me of a drug trip. The world literally looks different. The depth and detail is different, not just crisper,... READ MORE

Nervous, Scared, but Worth It - Pittsburgh, PA

So my wife and I decided to get Lasik at the same time. We were told not to since we have a ten month year old, but my parents were able to help out driving us and taking care of the little one. We had our consultation but I was on the fence, since I was comfortable in my contacts still, but... READ MORE

Was -4.25 in Both Eyes. Now Better Than Perfect! - Brisbane, AU

I had laser eye surgery yesterday. Despite the surfeit of online horror stories and having heard/read that everything might be a bit cloudy for a few days post-op, when I woke up this morning, I was certain that I could see better than with contacts.

Not Worth the Complications I've Had and I'd Give Anthing to Go Back in Time So I Could Change my Mind. - Oklahoma City, OK

Anybody out there thinking about getting Lasik really needs to do much research before having the procedure done.

20/20 Vision the Next Day

I got LASIK mostly because I finally had a vision plan that got me a discount on it. After wearing glasses for nearly 15 years, it was well worth it. Dr. P in Providence was fantastic. A little brisk, but with an attention to detail and precision that was exceptional. After meeting me only... READ MORE

Custom Wavefront Bladeless Lasik - More Than 18 Months Later - This Was Completely Worth It.

Prior to my surgery, I was extremely nearsighted. In fact, if my glasses fell of the nightstand during the night, I had trouble finding them again without calling for someone to help.
