I'm nearsight since high school up to now. I'm considering to have a lasik surgery. Can anyone here who have done the lasik surgery give me the advantage and disadvantage?
Advantages: if you're error of refraction isn't too high, you get back to 6/6 vision. No more contact lenses or glasses.
Disadvantages: no studies out yet about long-term effects
initial problem with bright lights
corneal donation might not be possible afterwards

It takes about 6 months for your eyes to completely heal and for your vision to acheive its peak, mine was 20/15 after 6 mos.
THey give you drops to keep your eyes from healing too fast and scarring over be sure to take them as prescribed.

Have been wearing glasses for 27 years of my life. Was not able to do a lot of things because glasses. If you can afford it, go for it. Anyway, they will conduct several eye tests to make sure you are a good candidate for Lasik.
Sa akin, no pain. but supersensitive lang ang paningin mo on the first 3 days. Plus you have to get used to not having glasses. Am on my 3rd month already, pero pag gising ko sa umaga kinakapa ko pa rin salamin ko. hehehe... PM me if you have any questions.

parang doktor ah...
Asian Eye has an old excimer laser, with an old technology of ablating the eyes, making the surface of the cornea gritty; thats why sabog yung lights at night. New lasers now are gaussian, that ablates the eyes smoothly.
Ok what happens during the eye surgery. They CUT a flap (they just say they make the flap because CUT sounds bad ) very thinly so that your cornea gets exposed. Then they fire at the the cornea and reshapes it. Then they put the flap back. Remember the EPETHILIAL FLAP DOES NOT HEAL BACK WHEN CUT. So you will be advised not to rub your eyes so hard FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE because the flap can be removed by doing so. Then wait for the luck you dont get under or overcorrected.
LOOK AT THE TRACK RECORD OF THE DOCTOR so you'd know how may successes he/she had. Even ask him/her about the papers (patient files) to prove it.
But dont be scared, most already have 20/20, 20/15 vision after the surgery. Which is also important ayt.

I have mine done in February 16, 2007. I was undercorrected and experience halos at nighttime from light source. My doctor told me i will undergo another correction this May 2007 to have a 20/20 vision. But i'm afraid of the halos during night vision.
where did you have your eyes done?

No regrets sa akin. I just came back from Puerto Galera last weekend. Snorkling was great. Ngayon ko lang nakita kung gaano talaga kaganda ang coral reefs and fishes natin dito sa pilipinas. Dati ang labo lahat. Can't wear glasses while snorkling eh. Can't wear contact lenses din naman since my eyes gets irritated when the lenses come in contact with salt water.
Lumiwanag ang mundo!
Though I still get some glare at night. I will have my check-up this May. Hopefully i don't have to got through correction.

Where did you get your Supralase procedure done? Here in the Philippines? How was post-op healing in the first few days?
Why are you thinking of getting LASIK? What are YOUR doubts about it? I have -2.00 myopia and I could get it for free from some doctor friends. However, I am not thoroughly inconvenienced by my contact lenses so I don't see the need to call in the favor.
