  • I had it done about 5 years ago, and I love it! The only problem I had was dry eyes for about 6 months after Lasik, but I haven't had any problems since. I'm not sure about it correcting astigmatism.

  • You know I would love to have this done (well not love) but I would love to get up from bed and start my day instead of fumbling for my glasses. I am 46 and my eye dr. told me that it won't benefit me bc I will still need to wear glasses to read. Then again I have known her since 1990 so I am going to ask this question to my dd eye dr. (6yrs.old) He is a young dr. But hey I am sure things changed bc technology sure has so I have to check into it. My brother who is 42 had it done 5 years ago and he says he was very glad that he had the surgery done. His vision was as bad as mine maybe worse we both have/had very strong astigmatism. GL

  • My hubby had it done a few years ago... he says it;s the best thing he has ever done for himself! He didn't have any complications.
