I Had Laser Eye Surgery

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 31 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...

    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...

    I Had It Done But I Hated It.
