I have got to do something different. I can't see clearly far off and wear Rx glasses and Costa Rx sunglasses.
Problem is the Costas are almost $600 and I have managed to loose 2 pair in the last year.
I figure I'd be ahead and get my eyes fixed where I can loose the cheaper non Rx Costas.
Any recommendations for a LASIK dr?
Any good or bad experiences about the procedure?

Thanks

I used the LasikPlus Vision Center in Plano and would use them again if needed.

Had it done at Berkley Eye Center in The a Woodlands. Some of the best money I ever spent. Used flex account to avoid taxes plus paid cash for a discount. Only needed one eye done to get the results I wanted which was good distance and not have to wear readers. The call it mono-vision. Your brain adjusts in a couple of weeks. I could see amazingly better right after the surgery which was easy. When I got home and could actually use the On-TV guide I knew I was going to be happy.

Totally pleased with their service. I did quite a bit of research. Dr. Doe did mine. That was about 7 years ago and still going strong.

I could not see well at distance at all but my close vision was good prior. At a distance I couldn't even tell pine trees had needles. I thought they were green blobs.

They may be geeky/90's fashion but you won't lose em. They may even match your jersey!

I had it done about 12 years ago. Best money I've ever spent. I can see distance like an eagle still at almost 59 years old. Close up vision is weakening, but that's an age thing and not a result of the lasik surgery.

I'm with Jim, had mine done 16 years ago having the same problem as you....can still far off like an eagle, close.....not so good, but for near 60 can't complain..Dr. Booth did mine and never regretted it one time....would highly reccommend you do it .

Had mine done almost 16 years ago. And like others have said...your closeup vision will go but again that's just part of the aging process. Still have great long distance vision but need readers for close in stuff...but I'm not complaining about it since I'm almost 63...:)

My wife had it done at Eye Care Associates of East Texas in Tyler. She was worse than legally blind (20/200). She could barely count fingers from 5 feet away. Her contact RX was like -7.5 and -8. Now her vision is 20/20 in one eye and 20/25 in the other. It was like a miracle.

Other than having to add drops all the time for dry eyes, she is 110 % happy with it. Worth every penny.

Best money I ever spent. I also used flex money. Best money ever.

I was happy with the results from Dr. Tylock.

Had mine done in 2007. I was blind. Got me to 20/20 and had to go back get it done again back in January. The second time is a biatch! I'll agree with everyone else though - the first time was money well spent. Dr Booth in Plano did mine both times. As of last week, his office is now closed. Made his million and retired.
