    Scheduled for Lasik Exam far away from the Surgery Center

    [FONT=Arial][SIZE=4][COLOR=Blue]I have scheduled an appointment for a pre-op exam and plan to get the custom Lasik at Lasik Vision Institute, in
    Pittsburgh, PA. The pre-op exam is in Erie, PA, which is quite a few miles from
    Pittsburgh. I am already worried, because of the separation of the two locations. Has anyone had Custom Wavefront Lasik done, after having the pre-op exam far away from the actual surgery location? Has anyone had lasik surgery more than a year ago, without having an enhancement and still has vision as good as it was right after the surgery? Can you still see 20/20? Is an enhancement always neccesary? Has anyone had their Lasik at the Lasik Vision Institute, in Pittsburgh, PA and how well can you see now? I am new to this forum, have read all of your posts, about Lasik and am looking forward to your answers.Thank you.

    I had Lasik in April of 2000 and still have 20/15 vision in both eyes. I will be covered for an enhancement if I should need one, but I'm not anticipating that I will. I waited until my vision was relatively stable before having the procedure, and I am 30 now, so I'm not expecting that it will change again until the normal aging progression around mid-40s or so where I might need reading glasses. For the record, my prescription was -8.75 in each eye before the procedure, so going from that to 20/15 vision really was like restoring sight to the blind! It's the best thing I've ever done, and I couldn't be happier with the results. Best of luck to you and let us know how it goes!
