I was turned down for the procedure.

That's the bottom line. I put it at the top because, well, I don't know...

After contemplating & checking it out for quite a while & watching the cost of the procedure come down, I'd finally had enough of having to wear "reader" over my contacts...

Went to a fairly large outfit (forgotten the name, & not here to plug, anyway...) they gave me the free eye-exam & I'm thinking this is like a lasix factory, sign up, cursory eye exam, make a date, & whammo, you're done...

Apparently the "cursory" exam is not.

They discovered something my opthomologist had not. Had not found in the 10 (?) years I'd been going...that I have a corneal dystrophy in my right eye.

LSS: That was it. I was out of there...Nothing they could do about it (not their area).

So, I guess until there's a "low cost corneal replacement center", I'll be stacking glasses & seeing halos.

FWIW: Everyone I've talked to that's had the procedure raves about it...nothing but good things to say & thrilled to be able to "see" again.


Good luck with yours.

I have noticed my reading vision isn't as good as it was prior to lasik but I'm not certain it's related.

Can you shed some light on what they look for in that 'cursory' exam? I've been giving this procedure some thought, and my insurance actually provides a sort of discount plan to help with it.

Thanks
