I Had Laser Eye Surgery

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 30 People

    Just Had Ilasik Done A Week Ago!

    The results are outstanding! I opted for the more expensive WaveFront eye mapping procedure, but it is totally worth the money! I actually got about $500 off for paying up front in cash. I had two appointments to check and measure my eyes, then had my operation. The only part...

    I Had It Done But I Hated It.

      I got it done as well but my vision is still slightly blurry.  The op was a nightmare, painful, and I had a panic attack and was in tears after for ages. When I have the check ups it's really annoying, coz the optician tells me what I should think, rather than what...

    I wanted to have laser eye surgery

    since I knew it was possible, and I finally did it just this February. $3000 Some people have said that's expensive, but to never have to worry about falling asleep with my glasses on, or losing my friends at the waterpark, it's so worth it. I'm so happy, although I'm constantly...

    The Best Thing I Have Ever Done

    I am 23 and had laser eye surgery when I was 21. My prescription had been stable for 3 years and my cornea was sufficiently thick so I was able to go ahead with it. Two years on and I am absolutely over the moon to be free from glasses! I sound just like a cheesy informercial I...
