... The different procedures were LASIK Which was £395 per eye, which involves making a flap of lens to expose your cornea, lasering your cornea to reshape it in order to correct your vision and placing the flap down to heel by itself.

AdvantagesCan get pricey depending on prescription, changes your life, new way of living

DisadvantagesThe pain of having it done and discomfort on the day.

"...the same price as the lasik and very similar to the lasik but instead of creating a flap to expose your cornea the actual outer layer is removed so you have to have a bandage contact lens on at the end of the procedure and your recovery is a little bit slower by all accounts. These are the two original methods that are the cheapest and most common. They have more advanced procedures that do not include cutting your eyes but using computers to perform ..." Read review

Say... Are those MY EYES I smell burning??? Diamond review

AdvantagesPerfect vision, quick results, no more contact lenses

DisadvantagesCost, possible problems as with all operations

"...two main types: PRK and Lasik as well as others. As I chose the Lasik option, I will mainly focus on this type. The difference being that with PRK the eye is lasered directly with no flap being created. Therefore the laser ‘scratches’ away excess tissue to achieve thinning of the cornea. This in turn causes longer recovery times as the wound will weep more as it is exposed to oxygen. Lasik is recommended for those who are very short sighted, whereas ..." Read review

AdvantagesNo more glasses or lenses, quick and painless

DisadvantagesExpensive, full recovery takes time.

"...I was suitable for Wavefront LASIK treatment. He also took time to explain the process to me and he wanted to discuss my motivations and expectations. It was explained to me that whilst perfect vision was the goal, it might be that I would need a mild prescription for some activities, such as driving. Additionally, my eyes could continue to change after surgery just as they could without surgery and of course as I get older I could find myself needing ..." Read review

Perfect eye sight but at a cost

AdvantagesThe freedom from glasses

DisadvantagesVery rarely the price advertised, not as simple as expected

"== Not quite the simple risk free procedure the liteature tells you it is == About 3 years ago I decided I had had enough of wearing glasses and contact lenses and looked into getting laser eye surgery. I did a bit of research and in the end I decided to go with optical express in their Newcastle branch as it was the closest clinic to me. I originally had to go for a consultation and have an eye test and of course my eyes weren't suitable for the ..." Read review

It worked for me, could work for you too.

AdvantagesA very real chance of un-aided vision

DisadvantagesRisks are statistically small - depends on your attitude to risk

"...recommended the most popular LASIK. LASIK stands for Laser ASsisted In-situ Keratomileusis. It has been around since the mid 1990’s and is used in the majority of treatments. Treatment Day! That morning I woke up feeling equally excited and scared. I so wanted not to be in the small minority of cases where things went wrong. However, I so fed up of needing to wear glasses to find my glasses, that I was prepared to take a chance. I looked at ..." Read review
