(CNN) -- Making the decision to have surgery on your eyes is a big one. While doctors can tell you in technical terms what is being done, the following stories by those who have already had the procedure may paint a fuller picture.
We talked with people from around the country who underwent LASIK, PRK, RK, Intac implants and corneal transplants. Some had good experiences, while others were significantly disappointed.
By clicking on the names below, you can read their personal experiences. Each person profiled answered exactly the same set of questions, though their answers were greatly varied.
Note: Some of those interviewed chose to remain anonymous due to the ongoing problems they face.
