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 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.
this is very common for people with larger-than-normal pupils. at night the pupil lets in light from the outer areas of the incision. maybe they've got new techniques to work around that?

This. My near sightedness hadn't changed in like 4 years so my optometrist said I made a perfect LASIK candidate when I told him I hated bifocals. My far vision is ztl as it was when I had the surgery 5 years ago.

Durrie vision is by far the best. I have no regrets and their entire process was amazing, easy and informative.

LASIK doesn't degenerate with age, but your eyes naturally change as you age. There's nothing you can do about this process. That shouldn't deter you from doing lasik though. Lasik will fix the nearsightedness and if your eyes change as you age so that you need reading glasses (again this will happen regardless of whether or not you do lasik), you can get that corrected, as well.

I am 35 and near-sighted. Does Lasik deteriorate with age?
As you get older, the muscles in your eyes get weaker. Thus they can't "squeeze" your eyeball enough to change the focus for up close. The time frame is different for all. Mine started at 42. The wife started at age 46. I hate glasses and when I heard that I'd needed reading glasses even with lasik, I opted out especially since I can wear contacts for a week.

Again, the only way to avoid glasses to get monovision. This can be done with lasik or with contacts. Check with your doc to see if you are a candidate for monovision with lasik.

Word of warning. Everyone gets presbyopia later in life. I had lasik at 40 and now wear glasses.

That's not true. There are a few ways to correct presbyopia. Monovision is just one way.

About the only other way, still without glasses, that I can think of would be bifocal contacts. I don't know much about them thou. I've heard that if you have much of an astigmatism, the bifocal part rolls around. I'm not sure of the price either. Can they be extended wear?

A friend got lasik, got old, instead of readers, she wears one contact for up close. Thus another form of monovision.

I'm curious as to the other methods to work around presbyopia?

Dr Prater of Neu-Prater in Springfield did mine 11 years ago 20/300 vision to 20/20 was also having trouble with reading no problems since. At night you eyes don't let in as much light as normal eyes so it effects your vision at night but the best investment I've ever made.

That looks like it would suck. Honestly, I had considered getting Lasik but most of the "success stories" in this thread are making me reconsider.

I don't have halos. Halos, from what I gather, are from older practices. Even if I got halos, I wouldn't hesitate to do the surgery again. It's that good.
