... thought of having perfect vision without the need for glasses encouraged me to go thru with the surgery.

... Ceasre, As we age, our eyes change over and over. I am not sure that your eye doctor will perform lasek for such a small change, knowing that other changes are coming down the road. I had lasek in my 30s and wish I hadnt because 15 years later, I have to wear glasses to read and my contacts to see long distance all over again. It was a waste of money. Ive gone back to my...

... Background: I'm 34 and in generally good health. In April of 2015, I had bladeless LASIK performed on both eyes by very reputable (and expensive) doctor in Nashville. Before surgery, I was -5.5 in left eye, -5.25 in right eye. After surgery, the right eye was perfect, no problems from day one. The left eye never quite sharpened up (borderline -0.75 / -0.5), and so I had an... (2 replies)

... I agree with lone aredale I would go back to before. Being nearsighted is way way way better than the result that I achieved. My vision was just slightly more nearsighted than yours so basically I could see to read but beyond there was blurry without glasses or contacts. Like lone aredale I now have 1 clear eye and 1 blurry eye, they do not work together very well. ... (11 replies)

... I found lasik to be extremely disappointing. I had it 15 months ago and am still dealing with vision issues. The worst part is learning about the damage to the cornea from websites after having had it. I would have not gone forward if I had understood the importance of the cornea and tear film and their dual role in vision, eye health, and keeping the eye moist. Its... (6 replies)
