I upped my eye insurance this year to get it done. Concerned about the length of time needed to be out of my contacts before the procedure though.

Great to know all went well!

My wife has to have DMEK surgery done; its a cornea transplant due to Fuchs disease. There are only three doctors in the state of Michigan that perform it. Thankfully he is a leader in that field and was part of a team that performed the first LASIK in Michigan back in 2005. I've watched U-tube videos on the procedure. OMG.... you have to admire the skill of people that can perform such stuff. Descemet’s membrane endothelial keratoplasty is a method that grafts only the membrane and endothelium, allowing for a pure anatomical replacement of only what was removed. Scary as hell for me to watch and I can't fathom how they can stitch a thin layer of a donor tissue into an eye!

Best thing I ever did for myself. I'd do it all over again in a heartbeat and I tell everyone that. My wife coincidentally now works for an eye surgery center.

Had mine done 15 years ago so my vision is now starting to drift but I'm 51 so it's to be expected.

My distance vision is still fantastic as long as I keep my eyes hydrated.

CONGRATS!!

I will admit to mild amusement by the Lasik ads on groupon.
I'm not quite sure that would fold into my selection criteria.

I ditched my contact lenses when I had to wear reading glasses over them. Seemed like a waste. Just went to progressive lenses. My wife had Lasik done 20-odd years ago and it completely cured her normal vision and remains excellent so to this day. But...she now has to have reading glasses stashed everywhere (including my cars!). Amazing stuff comes home from the grocery store when she doesn't use the "readers."

I never even got evaluated. My vision has been stable for years and now that I am nearing retirement, I may get them evaluated.

At 51, this is my first experience. I'm completely satisfied, so far. Waiting for the healing to complete to see what sharpness I get back.
