: : :I had the LASIK procedure two weeks ago at the Gimbel Eye Centre in Calgary. I am the
sixth family member to have it done (over five years) so I was able to hear about PRK and
LASIK. I also highly recommend you research the surgeon. At Gimbel the risks were outlined
very carefully on several occasions and I had to sign documents stating I understood the risks.
About 30 minutes before my surgery I met with the Opthamologist to discuss the surgery and
any questions I had. The surgery was wildly successful--within 24 hours I had 20/15 vision
in both eyes (my prescription was -6.25 in both eyes, or about 20/400). I also have a bit of
"dry eye" in the morning, but I am not complaining! I see better now than I ever have in my life
and my night vision is improved too. My contacts and glasses did not correct my slight
astigmatism and so I have always had halos and stars from lights. What I have now is very
minimal and I am assured even that will go away. I am a very happy customer.
