: : If you guys had laser eye surgery, can you guys give me your opinion on it??? Cause I want to get one too. I just need some opinions.
: : thanx
: I had laser eye surgery on both eyes in May, 2000. I had astigmatism and far-sightedness. It improved my right eye from 20/400 to 20/25 and my left eye from 20/200 to about 20/40.
: They are going to re-do my left eye (for free) in August. The procedure I had done was for mono-vision, i.e., one eye for close up and one eye for far away.
: We are redoing my left eye because I still do not have crisp vision in it. I am very pleased with my surgery (lasik) and would recommend the group I used. Their name is TLC and they have a web site,
: I had LASIK in August 1999. I had near-sightedness and astigmatism. My surgery was performed in Abbotsford, BC. I am exceptionally happy with the results. My eyes are now both 20/20 or better with no distortion. My night vision has not been lost, in fact I think I see better since I no longer have reflections and refractions from my glasses. BE CAREFUL ABOUT YOUR SURGEON! I talked to several and researched them before deciding who would do the work - I believe it makes all the diffrence in the world. Don't choose a deep discounter - they try to make up the difference in volume and I don't feel you get the same quality of care. Remember, they're the only eyes you've got, treat them with respect.
