If so how long ago? Any problems? I know it fixes short sightedness but has it also corrected your long vision? I have spoken to an ophthalmologist but just wanted some feedback from people with genuine first hand experience.

  • No , but I had a work colleague in the past had it done and she highly recommended it as she no longer needed to wear her glasses . I thought about it once but still I chicken out .

  • Was great to find this on here as I had a similar question so good to read replies. I think cost is the only thing holding me back at the moment really.

  • Thank you for all your responses. I will definitely pursue this as my health fund cover a large portion of the cost. I just need to make a few more enquiries

  • My sister had it done 2yrs ago. Her eyesight before was terrible. She couldn’t see without contacts or glasses. The surgery cost her $5000 but she now has perfect vision & hasn’t used glasses or contacts since.

  • I did lasik surgery 13 years ago, it was the BEST thing I did – you need to be a 99.999% candidate to be able to do it, after initial consultation tests if they say you are able to I say definitely do it, obviously go to a very reputable laser vision clinic and do your research.

  • sorry can’t help but am very interested to hear other comments as hubby has been thinking about this. Best of luck to you.

  • l would love to have this done too. l am worried though because some people (a small percentage l know) end up with worse eye sight.

  • interesting to hear feedback, will be following

  • I’m interested in hearing the answers, not just for myself but for hubby.

  • I was advised (by one of the clinics) that they could only fix short sighted ness. That was a few years ago, though.

  • I know 2 people who have had this done and both say it was the best thing they ever did and it was quick and fast recovery.

  • My cousin also benefitted from this surgery & no longer wears glasses.

  • My sister in law had this done a few years ago, she’s a police officer so it has been great not having to wear glasses anymore. She hasn’t mentioned any problems so far, my husband is also considering having the procedure done. I think these things have come a long way in the last few years.
