LasikPlus Nashvalle Reviews | LasikPlus Surgery Center Reviews

lasikplus-nashvalle-reviews LasikPlus Nashvalle Reviews by Heather : I ended up having Lasik done at LasikPlus in the Nashville, TN office with Dr. Thomas Wohl. I had this surgery on 2/28/09. Everything went well, and I was seeing 20/20 the following day. One thing I’d like to mention, is that my eyes were bruised from the suction cup and the pressure, which caused the white part of my eyes to be red. The doctor informed me that this typically happens to 20% of patients. So, the worst scenario with my surgery, was for the healing of this bruising and for my eyes to be clear of redness. Tomorrow it will be a week since I’ve had the surgery, and my eyes continue to see clearer and the redness is starting to go away. I definately am satisfied with my results and would most certainly go through the procedure again. It is extremely nice to no longer have to put contacts in and out every morning and night. I can also see the alarm clock in the morning. However, I cannot wait until the redness is completely gone and I can wear eye makeup!
I did receive 2 valiums prior to the surgery to calm my nerves. Which was extremely helpful. Also, I didn’t feel like another number or herd of cattle at this office, as I did at other clinics with my consultations. I arrived at the office at 10:30 and left at 12:15. I was probably in the surgery room for 20 minutes. The physician first examined my eyes before the surgery, then the nurses led me to the first laser machine. It was definately pretty wild when one of my eyes had a patch on it and the other the laser was doing the work. It felt like I was in a movie or something. It didn’t hurt, but felt pretty weird. And, when one eye went black for a second, it didn’t scare me as much as I thought it would. The nurses would count down from 15 seconds until the process was complete. Then, I was escorted to the 2nd laser machine. There was a point that I did say ouch on my left eye. Maybe the numbing drop wore off a little, but it wasn’t excruciating pain, but definately caught me off guard. Then, I was told the healing process works best the more you keep your eyes closed immediately following surgery. So, as soon as I got to my car, I closed my eyes on the way home and only opened them to walk in my apt. For about 1 hour after the surgery, my eyes were burning, but this sensation went away after an hour. I was definately scared to open my eyes for the first time after my nap, they felt very watery and a little swollen. When, I first opened my eyes it was very blurry. But, as the day went on my eyes became clearer and clearer. I was completely fine to drive the next morning to my 8am appointment, and I was reading the bottom line, which is 20/20 vision. My left eye was a little more blurry than my right.
So, overall, I expected everything that happened by all of my research, except the bruising of eyes and the redness. So, now my only hope is to have the white part of my eyes to be completely clear again! I do want to thank Dr. Wohl for the gift of sight, and hopefully everything keeps getting better and better here on out. But, I would definately go through this process again! Just make sure you do your research on the physician and facility and go to the place that makes you feel most comfortable, that was how I made my choice. I paid 3K for both eyes, which includes a 15% vision discount through my insurance. This also seemed to be right in the middle and norm for the procedure at this time. Again, I’m happy with my decision and my new eyes!

Lasik Plus Reviews By Isabella | LasikPlus Scottsdale, AZ Reviews

lasik-plus-scottsdale-AZ-reviews Lasik Plus AZ Lasik Center Reviews by Patient Isabella : I only have praise for Lasik Plus in Scottsdale, AZ. I was referred by many many people to Dr Perry at Lasik Plus. I am 48 years old and was constantly buying reading glasses. I went to another place first just for comparison sake. The exam was very brief and they all seemed very pushy! They immediately recommended having surgery on both eyes to have monovision. I did not understand the concept until I went to LASIK PLUS and the doctor actually demonstrated it for me so I understood perfectly and loved it. I could see far away and also read without glasses. After my free consultation I was told I could actually do one eye for reading and leave my dominant eye (camera shooting eye) to see far. If I felt I needed to see better for distance I could always have my other eye done in the future. I saved $1500 and the risk of having surgery. Everyone at LASIK PLUS was very informative and answered all my questions without worrying about how long it took. The day of surgery was very organized and it did not feel like a cattle call even though they did alot of surgeries. My prescription was verified again to ensure a great result. Yes I could have had it done for a few hundred dollars less but NO WAY would I compromise on the best for my eyesight. LASIK PLUS had state of the art testing equipment and they have 4 lasers not 1 or 2 like the other places. I could read the next morning without searching for my glasses YEAH!! I would never hesitate referring anyone to LASIK PLUS in Scottsdale, AZ. Thank you Dr Perry for the gift of sight.

Lasik Reviews From Mitbeta | Mitbeta's Lasik Laser Vision Correction Eye Surgery Reviews

lasik+reviews+from+mitbetas Mitbeta's Lasik Reviews : My wife and I both had Lasik done by the only independent surgeon in New England (in other words, he was not affiliated with a hospital — he was the only surgeon in New England who had enough money and experience to buy his own equipment). At the time, 2003, that my wife had hers done, this doctor had over 7000 surgeries to his credit, including a number of famous athletes, etc. — people who rely on their eyes for their super high incomes.
This meant that he did not come cheap, but it also meant that the quality was very high.
This particular surgeon turns away a large percentage of the people that come in for consultations because either their eyes can’t be helped by him or (and this is important): they have unrealistic expectations of what the outcome will be. My wife desired to be able to see the alarm clock in the middle of the night, and to be able to see her legs to shave them when in the shower. She had horrible vision and considered any improvement to be worth it. My eyes were a lot better, and therefore easier to get back to 20/20.
The surgery itself takes very little time. My wife had her eyes done about a year before I had mine done (separated for Flexible Spending Account purposes). I got to watch her surgery on a video monitor. Let me tell you: watching it is far worse than having it done. They numb your eyes and give you a valium, so the worst part is actually the speculum that holds your eyelids open, rather than anything they are doing to your actual eye.
I had halos immediately after my surgery that lasted for about a month. They were annoying but not debilitating. I had, and still continue to have, dry eyes, however after having worn contacts for a number of years, this is no big deal. I always carry eyedrops with me, though I find that I use them less and less frequently. I also often use a product that keeps my eyes moist while sleeping.
My eyesight is 20/10 at this point. My wife needs to wear glasses for certain things, like driving at night, but the prescription is very light. She has something like 20/30 vision.
We both strongly endorse Lasik, but encourage anyone considering it to really think about what they want to get out of it, and then find the right surgeon for themselves.
We took advantage of FSA accounts as well as 0% interest financing to make the process that much less painful.

Deanna's PRK Lasik Reviews | Deanna's LasikPlus Center Reviews

lasik+plus+prk+lasik+reviews This is Deanna's PRK lasik reviews : I had lasik surgery in July of 2008. I had the PRK lasik surgery because my pupils were a bit larger than most and it was the safest method for me.
COST: 3,000;

Qualified for 0% interest for 18 months with monthly payments
BEFORE: My eyesight before I could not even see the TV while laying in bed at night without my contacts on. I always wore contacts. ALWAYS! I needed them to drive…and walk really. LOL! I had astigmastism. Left eye was -3.75 and my right eye was -3.25.
RECOVERY: First day I went home took a nap, woke up and I could see 20 times better than before but things were a little foggy. I did have some halos and glares that eventually went away through out the week.
After one week the halos and glares disappeared and so did the fogginess and I could see perfectly.
SURGERY: It took about 15 seconds per eye. I didn’t feel a thing. It just looks like a little green and red light getting fuzzy and then it goes back into focus. Very quick and painless.
RESULTS: My vision is now better than 20/20…I can see 20/15!!! How you like me now! Very glad that I decided to get it done. Lasik plus was wonderful!!! NO REGRETS!!!

Lasik Candidacy Matter Is Pupil Diameter

lasik+candidacy+matter+is+pupil+diameter This is large to think that everyone was authorized to a sure form of method of correction of vision. Remembered that which point wonderful was since a child it do not have to put over glasses before you can see to make hardly on does not import that? But every surgery has its with of possible side effects based on the method same, health of the patients la'e, well, just a lot on differently. And LASIK is not various.
When it comes to the dimension of yours pupil and as this influences your ability to have the correction of LASIK vision, he is really rather interesting. Yours pupil more small are developed for the moment larger and based on the amount of necessary light. When walk outside a full sun day, yours pupil become little ones more because they do not have need to inside afford much light of your eye.
If found in a room becomes gloomy, and you could really see the dimension of yours pupil, you would notice that very large and they were opened of uncino as well as light like possible. He is for that this takes some second ones because your eyes are regulated on the dusk - the students must open themselves.
When the dimension of yours pupil naturally expanded is large, to have LASIK it can have as consequence does not import that hardly of a secondary difficulty to an inability to lead the night. Here because. The iris indicates to the pupille how much or little of light costs necessary. The pupille they are opened or they are shut consequently and the light moves with the cornea to the hairnet. With LASIK, some woven it is removed of the center of the cornea and is this that to compromise like the light is received by the cornea to the hairnet. A possible result is that you see a model of starburst around the lights the night. This returns it very difficult to lead, particularly with the heavy similar traffic. The beacons become as if they blind.
LASIK on large pupil has been able also to see halos around the lights, above all the night. Still, this is profitable leading the very difficult night.
