Thread: Lasik

  1. #11
    Had LASIK done about 20 years ago...only started low level readers in last couple years...doc hasn’t even written a script, just using from Walmart...but I have the beginnings of cataracts and my once excellent night vision has gone to hell in last few years...

    FWIW, I was 20/440ish before LASIK, 20/15-20 after...

    I had lasik in only one eye, about three months ago.

    Literally cannot see any better, at all. 0% improvement.

    Apparently this happens from time to time....

    I considered getting lasik but decided against it due to the loss of peripheral vision some I know have experienced...

    Had my LASIK 14 years ago next week. $2,800 per eye - definitely did not go with the low cost provider.

    For the first 12 years my vision was better than perfect. Almost obnoxiously so.

    Oddly, one of my eyes has naturally become far-sighted and one near-sighted. My brain puts the images together to allow me to see fine both near & far, but not as well as I could five years ago. Still no need for glasses.

    Would 100% do it again.

    say what? there is literally no reason that lasik would cause that that I'm aware of.

    Always entertaining, mildly offensive
    IANative: Indeed, when you grab Brent (or he grabs you), it feels like liquid unobtanium wrapped in rawhide... whereas Greg is just solid muscle wrapped in hate, seasoned w/ snuff and a little lead.

    Weird. Never heard of Lasik impacting peripheral vision.

    99% of people I've talked to have had a perfect experience with it. There is 1% that have some minor trouble. For instance I have 20/20 vision but the lasik mildly increased my astigmatism. It's not enough to notice most of the time. It does cause some blooming with red dots...but they are still an improvement over iron sights.

    Perhaps 'loss' was a bit misleading... I know a few people who have had it done and they've all said their periphial vision is blurrier at the edges.

    To which one could answer that their peripheral vision seems blurrier because their unrefracted central vision is now more acute (clearer).
