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!

I know a guy that'll do it for $200 per eye. And if you want, he'll throw in a wicked wolf tattoo for free.

Someday I'd like to really look into this...I just can't get over the idea of them cutting my eye, even if in a "surgical" way. My wife needs it way worse than I do though...

...so I'll let her go first!

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.
Mine isn't this bad either, but I have it with glasses, contacts, and without vision correction when I was younger. I always thought everyone saw things that way.

That isn't really a complication. It happens normally just like it would without LASIK. I had it done 5 years ago because I needed bifocals and I hated them. My optometrist is the one that actually suggested it and he recommended the local place do it. Think it was about$2500/eye back then.

I've had 20/18 long vision ever since but still need cheaters.

Another consideration is your age. I thought about lasik when I was 38. Assume I did the surgery, 4 years later I would have needed reading glasses. Which would have blown.

You could opt for monovision. One eye is distance, the other for reading. It eliminates the reading grandpa glasses. I'm not sure at what age that is recommended.

I did not do the surgery. I am able to wear contacts again and have them set up for monovision. It is awesome. I can read and see distance. The brain figures out which eye to use. But it does mess up your distance depth perception. Imagine driving with only one eye. Especially at night. I have some "night" driving glasses that have a slight yellow tint and corrects my reading to be distance. Works great.

As an earlier post mentioned, check with your employer.

Durrie vision no questions is the best. I'm a quad so it was a pain to put in contacts and Durrie did mine for free because of a program he has for the disabled. I'm only 27 so I dont have the issues other people get when they are older with lasik. Age is a big factor imo. Both my parents had it done(different doctor) and both need readers now

there is a grant available for this. its $1,500 but you have to have not so shitty eyes to get it. I was quoted 2,500 and change for both eyes here in Olathe. Overland Park probably is in the 3k range.

Grene Vision in Wichita was by far one of the best in Kansas. Dr. Grene is retired now but it is still one of the best. Both my mom and I both got our lasik there and neither of us have ever had any issues. Best decision I have ever made and was well worth the cost. My recommendation don't skimp pay for a good doctor.

I am 35 and near-sighted. Does Lasik deteriorate with age?

They give you drops incase your eyes dry out but I have never needed them. I believe they want you to keep your eyes closed for about a day. (don't quite remember was a long time ago). However I could read the clock in the surgery room as soon as they did it. (Couldn't even see the clock before the surgery). It was quick and painless. Like I said best decision I have ever made. Also I now have 20/15 vision in both eyes and that is going from pretty much legally blind before.

Depends if your eyes are still changing a bunch year to year. Mine was a little bit so I had to go back for a touch up. At 35 it would be worth getting lasik imo because of the cost of contacts and glasses.

I am pretty stable. In fact, I have improved a hair.

Thanks for the input, you guys have been really helpful.


Well, except for the smart asses that should impale themselves on an AIDS cactus.

one thing to check on is the cost of touch-ups. Some places will do it for free if your vision ever changes, others charge again.
