Bye prescription glasses…Bye contact lenses {Lasik surgery}

bye bye
As a Birthday gift to moi I have finally decided to get Lasik surgery and I am so excited and nervous. This is a prodcedure that I have researched and contemplated for years!

    my husband had the surgery. Although he does benefit from not wearing glasses anymore he does see a halo when driving in the evening…which cannot be corrected with glass.<br /><br />He is also experiencing deterioration in one eye…again cannot be helped by glasses/contacts.<br /><br />In his point of view…if he could do it all over again…he wouldn’t.<br /><br />Not trying to be a damper, just

    Several of my friends have gone to this specific doctor including my boyfriend who had the procedure done in 2004. Out of the 4 only one has experienced that Halo effect you write about.
