Laser eye surgery

Postby faith177 » Mar 12th, 2018, 4:09 pm

Wondering if anyone has had this done with very bad eyes? I am around a -6.50-7 in both eyes with an astigmatism and wondering about prices and experiences. Thanks

My sister had it done and she is happy with the results. However...if you value your night vision, it could be effected.
Transport Canada will not issue a aviation medical to a person that has had it done.
Most things that have the words "Canada", or "provincial" and "system", end up being a failure, and/or place last in the developed world.

I had laser surgery to treat a retinal tear (in the hopes of preventing a full detachment). Worked like a charm, did not quite save 100% of my vision but pretty nearly and much better than the alternative. Took about ten minutes altogether, maybe five minutes or less of lazering. But I'm not quite brave enough to do it to improve vision.
