I think in many cases Lasik can be done with decent results, I feel the problem lies in the screening process. With 20/20 hind site I now know that I was not a good candidate for Lasik.



Large pupils

Farsighted +6 with astigmatism

Congenital cataracts

Dry eyes

Amblyopia



Any one of these things on their own is probably not a huge concern, add them all together and the odds of getting good results are not likely. My advise to anyone considering Lasik is -RESEARCH- Understand your vision, your specific situation and how your numbers stack up against the acceptable treatment range. Find a Dr. you can trust but remember they are in business to make $$$ and can only be trusted so far and rest falls on your shoulders to be an educated consumer.
