Lasik Surgery

My wife and I are going to get Lasik Surgery. We need suggestions and recommendations as to who we should go to.


We live in SW Kansas, but I am willing to travel anywhere if needed.


Please let me know if there are any side-effects, how long it takes to heal, etc.


Thanks for any input!

Dr Cavanaugh in OP

Had mine done almost 7 years ago now. Still 20/20 vision. My eye doc has to search really hard to even find the incision scars. I believe he still charges around $2k per eye, but when you are talking about eye surgery, you don't go the cheap route. The surgery only takes about 15 minutes total, then I went home and took a nap. Woke up seeing perfectly.

I had halos at night for the first few days, but have had no problems since.

This surgery is a no-brainer for people who can afford it.

A girl I dated worked at a lasik surgeon's office. She said a lot of people have complications, the most common problem is they go from nearsighted to farsighted, and still have to use vision correction for reading etc. Hearsay fwiw, but do your homework before you eff with your eyes.

Yep. My night vision was poor at best before the procedure and it didn't improve at all afterwards. I think it got worse.

I used to have trouble seeing distance but that is corrected except I now have trouble seeing close.

I would absolutely bring this up with your employer and the doctor before getting it done.

I've been very happy with my results overall, but I have a bit of an issue with lights at night. My issue isn't nearly as bad as this picture, but this is what happens.



I had about the same thing when I wore glasses (I didn't have this with contacts) so it's not a huge deal for me. I still say it was totally worth it & I'd do it again in a heartbeat.
