Calgary wife, is your prescription a -8.0 for comtact lenses or glasses?  I'm just curious b/c I have that same prescription with contact lenses and I've been considering lasik surgery too, but I'm still too chicken.  I've been told that I may not have sucessful surgery b/c my eyesight is so bad????  Did your Dr seem to think that you may have any complications or side effects afterwards??

  • Hi!

    -8 was my glasses contacts were -7.50 (both of my eyes are exactly the same!)

    Who told you that you might not have a successful surgery? There is a new procedure out now...LASIK with Zypotix. It is for people with high prescription and larger pupils.

    I would totally recommend my surgeon who works out of the downtown Calgary LASIK MD office. His name is Richard Leger and he has done over 40,000 procedures. When I went in for surgery he told me he has done surgery on people who had worse prescriptions than me and ended up having 20/15 vision. He didn't seem to have any concerns...but sometimes people end up seeing halos.

    So if I were you I would totally go for it! It is SOOO nice not having to buy contacts/glasses, contact lens solution, etc.

  • Sorry for butting in, I also responded to your other post. ooh yeah I have large pupils, and it sounds like this is a new procedure that came out after my consult. I should go for another consult!!
