Lasik Eye Surgery Message Board


Lasik Eye Surgery Board Index


So, does anyone have anything good to say about Lasik surgery? All I see are negative comments on this board. Where are the positive results? I know they are out there because everyone that I talk to in real life tells me this is the best thing they ever did in their life. They love that they can swim with their eyes open, can see what they're doing in the shower, can see the alarm clock when they wake up, etc.

I'm going for a consultation on Feb. 1 with a world renowned surgeon and again, the reviews I read on him at a different board on the Internet were nothing but rave reviews.

I'd like to know what type of surgery those that are disappointed had. There is LasEK for those that have thin corneas and then there is regular Lasik. There is also Bladeless/Custom Lasik where they fine tune your eye for more crisp vision. The place I'm going to also does PRK and implantable contact lenses.

Just interested in hearing more about this from others and what type of surgery you actually had done.

Sorry to hear about your troubles. I had custom (wavefront) bladeless (intralase) Lasik with a VisX laser at TLC Eye Center yesterday 1/24/2011. I was freaking out going into it because of all the negative reviews here. But like you, everyone I talked to said overwhelmingly positive things about their experiences. My parents had it done 10 years ago and are still 20/20 in their 60s. I was expecting a rough recovery but so far it's been very painless. My eyes are a bit gritty right now but I've been on the computer most of the day. I started out with bad astigmatism at about -3.00 diopters per eye. I couldn't even see the big 'E' (worse than 20/400). Now I am about 20/25 to 20/30. The worst part so far is the nasty taste the steroid drops leave in my throat as they drain from my tea ducts. Sure my rx will change over the coming weeks; I'll try to update my results here. This board really could use more positive experiences; it scared the bejeezus out of me! I almost didn't do it, but am so far very glad I did :)
