... Thanks to everyone who's shared their experiences here. I've noticed however, many people forget to mention their pre-op prescription.

... but I would not describe my vision as "perfect" the next day or even a week later, because of the halos and glare, and the dry eyes. I am happy that it is constantly improving though. ... (11 replies)

... ble to the point that I don't notice any discomfort. The halos at night aren't great but it's a trade off that I can live with considering that I was at the end of my rope with glasses and contacts. Good luck. ... (11 replies)

... First I would like to tell you that I am a 55 year old man and I had presbyiopia as well as moderate myopia and astigmatism since I was ten. I wanted to undergo lasik surgery to correct my distance vision and knew right away that this would not help the prebyopia. ... (7 replies)
