    Don't be fooled by the fancy terminology, eg. femtosecond lasers, etc. Just ask those who work with lasers at universities, e.g. in physics and engineering, and they will tell you the truth! You cannot undo the damage. Just stick to glasses and contacts (if you can wear them). I know of one doctor who did lasik yet he wore glasses!!! What does that tell you?!

    there wasnt youtube when I took lasik

    I had Lasix and loved it for years. But recently I had a detached retina in my left eye which has made my vision worse than before my lasix. The next step for me will need to be a lens implant. I was told that the detached retina was not caused by my lasix surgery burt some people disagree.

    Dr Anthony Roberts ruined my eyes. He workd in baltimore MD and sucks. He turned his back on me when the surgery went wrong.

    I'm from Canada and had my life ruined by the LasikMD outfit. Dr. Wallersteins LasikMD chain is destroying peoples lives, Ive talked to a number of other people that have been ruined at the hands of this clinic just like me. Lasik is not safe and don't let anybody tell you otherwise.

    if you had lasik ,there will be no tears for cries,so if one of relative dieds ,you wouldnt able to cry.....that is sad

    It's a myth that LASIK patients who suffer´╗┐ complications complain openly. The fact is that many don't even tell their family. They may even tell people that their LASIK was great and keep their LASIK complications a secret. Why would they do this? The reasons are many. Here's just 1 reason .LASIK is permanent. You can't return it like a bad pair of glasses. Therefore, many choose to rationalize their bad decision (ex. sure my night vision sucks but at least I don't need glasses). LASICK!

  • Fujitapower150 March 24, 2010 at 11:19 am

    ..Okay nevermind.
    I should of watched the whole video before posting that last comment. My bad.

  • Fujitapower150 March 24, 2010 at 12:12 pm

    Does anybody know the certain qualifications that the doctors look for in a patient before getting the Lasik surgery?

  • goldengirl67 March 24, 2010 at 12:50 pm

    I wear glasses and after seeing all this infor on Lasik will never get it. I saw the procedure on a film they had at a Science Centre and it gave me chills - it just seems to risky.

  • thetruth8699 March 24, 2010 at 1:11 pm

    I know it says that the LASIK surgeon in the news story got LASIK. Some LASIK surgeons got LASIK in the early years of LASIK. Now there's so much research showing that LASIK is terrible for your eyes (short-term, long-term, or both) that you would be hard-pressed to find a LASIKA surgeon who had LASIK in the last few years. The fact is that most eye doctors where glasses for a good reason.

  • rollfitty69 March 24, 2010 at 2:03 pm

    Lasik fucks up your vision. I know I had it done

  • LovelyYTRocks March 24, 2010 at 2:28 pm

    1) Get a very good doctor, that's not over confident has a record of LOTS OF SUCCESSFUL SURGERIES.

    2) A doctor who fucking knows what s/he's doing.

    3) Pay the damn price, don't get some cheap $50 LASIK eye surgery behind a dumpster.

  • trevormac77 March 24, 2010 at 3:17 pm

    The place I went to won't operate on some people who don't meet the qualifications of the initial exam and they have done 100s of thousands of surgeries in Canada. I had is done a month ago and I'm already better than 20/20 and my dry eyes are getting better every day as they told me it would. I only need eye drops first thing in the morning when I wake up now. The technology is much better now too and many of the problems they talk about were in the past when they had inferior equipment.

    If she got corneal transplants, would this help her?

  • ColdNova75 March 24, 2010 at 4:17 pm

    My optician tried to sell me this the other day , he said the worst side effect was having to repeat the procedure .

    Even if the risks/negative gamble with your eyes, only applies to 5% of people , what if your one of the 5% ?

    My optician is obviously a disingenuous, capitalist whore , and I'll now find someone who's will give me the whole truth in relation to treatment.

  • CityStaticX March 24, 2010 at 4:29 pm

    Bro, that's not funny at all. You're eyes are VERY important. My vision is naturally crappy, and it's not fun having bad eye sight.

  • mstiffysmith March 24, 2010 at 5:07 pm


  • xplics March 24, 2010 at 5:49 pm

    Listen daysin1234 it's a horrible thing that happened to you my friend, and if the same thing happened to me I would be horribly upset as well. I have no issues, and the only side effect if it can even be called that was very minor star bursts which by the way seem to be going away now. Another thing that I find rather strange is that people say after you get lasik your night vision is terrible but my vision at night is excellent. Sadly you are part of the 5 percent that lisik did not work on.

    If LASIK is so safe, then why are there so many hurt LASIK patient websites warning you of Lying Lasik Dr's?

    LasikFda, LasikScam, LasikPimp
    LasikSucks4u2, LasikNewsWire
    LifeAfterLasik, Lasik-Flap, LasikFraud
    LasikComplications, LasikLiberty
    VisionSimulations, LasikContactLenses
    UsaEyes-Fraud, LasikDecision
    FlawedLasik, LasikDisaster, LasikNightmare, LasikMemorial
    LaserMyEye, MyLasikStory
    YouTube: FDA LASIK

  • dkantis March 24, 2010 at 6:08 pm

    LASIK is not a permanent fix and your eyes change every 5 years. Make sure you understand this. Do you know that you're electing to pay a Lying LASIK Quack and their commissioned staff, $4k to permanently slice a FLAP into both of your eyes, leaving your eyes dryer than the previous year, getting worse every year, causing you MUCH pain. Hence the reason the FDA's website warns everyone: "the number one complication from ALL LASIK procedures is permanent Dry Eye Pain..." You've been warned!

  • blicksflicks March 24, 2010 at 6:43 pm

    Shut up! Lasik is the bomb! Eleven more years, and they'll implant whole eyeballs.

  • dkantis March 24, 2010 at 7:25 pm



  • dkantis March 24, 2010 at 7:39 pm

    LASIK was the worst decision of my life, it felt like a thousand needles sticking my eyes. They market it like it's painless but it's not. The suction ring felt like it pulled my eyes out of their socket. LASIK promotes permanent conditions with no cure:

    -Dry Eye Syndrome
    -Double Vision
    -Night Halos/Starbursts
    -Loss of Visual Acuity
    -Accelerated Aging of the Eye
    -Lack of Natural Tear Production
    -Each Year Post LASIK Vision Gets Progressively Worse
    -Cell Tissue Mutation

    Lasik worked great for me. I was an "outside" candidate, with horrible astigmatism (4x4.5). After doing my homework, taking to 4 reputable surgeons, and looking them up on the web, BBB and the like, I chose to have the procedure done.

    It is not a pleasant experience, believe me. But in the end, I fell it was a huge success.
