Default LASIK eye surgery.

Have any of you guys had corrective eye surgery? I'm really beginning to consider it. My eyesight is pretty bad. I have astigmatism and I've been wearing contact lense for about 15 years now. Any help would be great.. A doctor recommendation, maybe some info on prices. Would like to hear how it has affected your everyday life too. I'm in the Florence area but I'm not so sure about the optometrists around here ,maybe Columbia or Charlotte have better doctors. Thanks in advance.

It is fairly common these days. It is done at many shopping malls around town.

Although if you have it done at a shopping mall, you end up looking like Yancey's avatar.

My brother had it done years ago and loves it. I have been thinking about it. I wear glasses but my eyesight is not real bad.

I have been thinking about it as well, I have been wearing contacts since 8th grade but I have gotten tired of them. Plus, my eyes get really tired after having them in from 5am to midnight some nights during wrestling season.

I would do the LASIK surgery if that were an option for me. Sadly, I'm not a candidate for that surgery.

My son-in-law had it done before he went to MEPS, then basic training so he wouldn't have to wear those hideous glasses. It worked great for him. He no longer has to worry about contacts or glasses. That was back in 2005 and I think it was around $3,000 for the procedure.

Make sure it's an opthamologist and not an optometrist.

Default Re: LASIK eye surgery.

My wife had this done 6 months ago in Greenville. She was at the "very top" of allowable for the procedure...she couldn't see anything without contacts. Things were very good for the first 6 weeks (20/20) then she has started to backtrack some. She is on the way today to meet with the doctors and talk about doing a "tune up" to get her back to 20/20. They did say that there is a cance that she would have to do this so it wasn't a big surprise. If they go back in it will cost nothing so that is a good thing.

Same boat as you, had it in 2006 and now see 20/15 and 20/10. Blue shield/cross had discounted plan, about 1k per eye.

Not Lasik but had cats removed from both eyes and new stuff put in. Piece of cake.
