The LASIK Vision Institute

This Giveaway is now closed. We truly wish that all of you who entered could have won this amazing, life changing prize because as we all know our eyesight is a remarkable gift! Well let’s get right down to it! The incredibly lucky winner is…Commenter # 539, Lindi, who said, “I normally don’t enter contests because I’m like the unluckiest person alive, but this is too good to pass up! I’ve been wearing glasses/contacts since I was in 5th grade and would love the life changing opportunity to have Lasik surgery. It’s one of those things that has always been on my ‘so desperately want’ list, but has been pushed back due to the cost. Having the surgery would improve my quality of life (and itchy eyes) dramatically! I would just die if I won!” Congrats!! We hope the results are everything you dreamed of!


So let me just start off by saying that this is CLEARLY something very different from the typical party/entertaining-related Giveaways that we usually run at HWTM, but with such an amazing prize, it was just too good to pass up… because The LASIK Vision Institute is offering up a LASIK eye surgery procedure VALUED AT a WHOPPING $4000 to a very lucky reader!

I know first-hand what a life-changer this can be because I had LASIK myself almost 7 years ago now, and it seriously changed my life overnight (or actually in the span of about 15 minutes to be more precise). I remember registering literally the exact second when my vision improved during the procedure – it was like I’d been looking through an out-of-focus camera lens and suddenly it came into focus – it was surreal! And I definitely do NOT miss the days when I could barely read the alarm clock on the night stand next to my bed unless I picked it up and held it approximately 4 inches from my face (ya – my vision was really THAT bad without contacts). Sound familiar to anyone else?

    I would love to win LASIK for my husband. He has had contacts/glasses since grade school so he has never known what it is like to have good vision. He has always talked about getting LASIK. I got laid off a year ago so LASIK isn’t something we could immediately afford. I know that it would change his life. What a great contest!

  2. Jenni says:

    After my husband and I got married he started noticing that if I read without my glasses/contacts the book literally has to be no more than 3 inches away without it being completely out of focus. I wish I had great vision and if i had the Lasik procedure I know it would be life changing. My fingers are crossed!

  3. Hello! Lasik would be a dream come true! I have worn glasses since I was in kindergarten and never known a day where I could see without help. I would LOVE to wake up and see the world through new eyes! Whoever wins this though will be blessed beyond measure…so thank you for this giveaway!

  4. Nikki says:

    What an awesome giveaway!
    One of my eyes could really use the lasik. But the other one is so bad, my doctor said I would need a lens implanted behind the retina and then lasik to finish the task. Frankly, the idea of a lens implanted in my eye kind of freaks me out, so I would likely gift this to my mom. She can no longer wear contacts and has been talking about lasik for years if she only had the money. I’d love for her to finally be able to do something for herself. Thanks for offering the surgery…I’m keeping my fingers crossed!

  5. Lila Hager says:

    I would love to be able to give this to my husband. He refuses to wear glasses, so instead Im the one telling him what things are on the tv or a road sign! :-)

  6. Amie J says:

    I haven’t been able to see 20/20 since birth. To no longer need glasses and the day to day care that requires would be a wonderful, sweet blessing. I almost got the procedure done 8 years ago but it is a signifigant investment.

  7. It would be for ME!! (my husband has perfect vision…yes, I’m jealous) I’m tired of wearing contacts and need this!!

  8. Lili says:

    I would for my spouse to have Lasik! He has always suffered from poor vision and his prescription for his contacts are super high. His doctor has recommened lasik every time he is seen. Unfortunately, we cannot afford the procedure and I know that this would dramatically improve his daily life. What a great contest to win something so life changing! Thanks for allowing us to enter!

  9. Alfreda says:

    I would LOVE to have Lasik as I am so tired of wearing my glasses and contacts. I’ve worn both since about the 9th grade of high school. It would be nice to be able to see the TV from my bed…LOL!

  10. Kim W. says:

    The Lasik surgery would be for me. I have terrible vision and it would be so nice not have to reach for my glasses in the morning, just to see clearly.

  11. Misty Buchanan says:

    I have had to wear glasses since I was 5 years old. Being able to have Lasik would be amazing. Thank you for the opportunity.

  12. Leslie R says:

    I would love to win LASIK for my fiance! I have to be honest, for purely selfish reasons! When we talk about having children he says that I’m going to have to be the one to get up in the middle of the night if they are crying. He says because his vision is too bad and he wouldn’t be able to find his glasses quick enough. PLEASE help! I need a reason to be able to push him out of bed when our children are crying in the middle of the night! :)

  13. Jamie F says:

    I would love to win this Lasik prize. I’ve been wearing glasses for 27 years and have always wanted to wake up and see the world without the glasses or contacts. Lasik is something that I don’t think that I could ever afford so to win this would be a blessing. I hope I’m picked and thank for the opportunity!

  14. Kristi Rose says:

    I’ve had glasses since I was 10 years old. I’ve tried contacts several times and several varieties, and they’ve never been for me. I’d love to have LASIK so I could swim with my kids without having to wear my glasses…doesn’t really work out well, you know?

  15. Holly says:

    Oh Wow! This would be amazing! If I were lucky enough to win I would use it myself. I have horrible eyesight and spend a small fortune on glasses and contacts. I have no idea what it is like to wake up in the morning and be able to see more than three inches (literally) in front of my face. *sigh* to be able to see without glasses or contacts………….

  16. Heather Van Dyke says:

    my mom deserves LASIK more than anyone I know. She has worn glasses for years. I know that her nor I will ever be able to afford this surgery for her. What an awesome feeling it would be to give her this gift!

  17. I’d love Lasik surgery because my contacts are now 7.5 and 8 respectively, and last time I checked they only go up to 12! I’ve thought about it before but I’ve been too chicken to go forward but I think I could brave it for free. Thanks for the chance!

  18. Courtney W. says:

    Winning LASIK would be a dream come true! With a new baby and new bills LASIK seems even further away. I have constant issues with my contacts and search the nightstand for glasses for the night feedings( not fun when you have a hungry baby).

  19. Brandy says:

    I would love to have it done to myself. I hate having to put my contacts in everyday and I can’t stand wearing glasses. I would love to be alleviated of the annual costs that come along with glasses/contacts because it isn’t cheap.

  20. Jenny Johnson says:

    What an amazing giveaway! I would love to have lasik done. I have been wearing glasses since I was in 4th grade. I am so sick of contacts and waking up in the middle of the night and not being able to see the clock.

  21. Kimberly says:

    I would love to win the LASIK surgery for myself! I am always squinting to see everything and hate wearing my glasses!!

  22. Nanette says:

    After having kids, I usually put myself last. And my glasses are included in that. I haven’t bought new glasses or had my eyes checked in 4 years because it always seems like the money could be better used elsewhere. If I won this giveaway, I would use it for myself!

  23. Jenny Dixon says:

    I have been wanting to have the Lasik procedure done for years. I would love to wake up in the middle of the night and SEE my alarm clock! What a fantastic giveaway!

  24. Ginger cox says:

    I am going to be turning the big 4-0 in December & would love a great birthday present like Lasik!!! I have worn glasses since high school & contacts since college. What a pain! I have been thinking this would be such a great thing to have done. To be able to see first thing in the morning would be real treat for the second half of my life!

  25. Niki says:

    Oh my. What a wonderful chance for my future husband. He has dealt with glasses/contacts since the 8th grade. He consistently dreams about Lasik but we simply cannot afford it with our student loan debt. Crossing my fingers and toes!!

  26. Chanda Garcia says:

    I would love, love, love to have Lasik! After years of putting up with the hassle of contacts and glasses; I would be beside myself with excitement to open my eyes in the morning and see my family clearly, without having to fumble around for my glasses first!

  27. Missi says:

    I would love to win Lasik! I have had glasses or contacs since 3rd or 4th grade. I hate waking up in the middle of the night & not even being able to read the clock & know what time it is. I would love to not have to wear glasses or contacts anymore!

  28. Alicia Richards says:

    I would love to win this for my Mom who can barely see. She went to the grand opening of Mother’s in Brea and they were giving away cookies but my mom thought they were hamburgers. She is the youngest of 9 children and has had such a hard life, this would be so wonderful. I wish I could just buy it for her.

  29. Lindsay says:

    I have had horrible vision since 6th grade! I started with glasses and have now worn contacts for over 15 years. I would love to have Lasik – I can’t imagine the feeling of opening my eyes in the morning and being able to see my surroundings without putting on glasses or putting in contacts. That would be thrilling!!

  30. Mindy says:

    I would give this to MYSELF!! :-) I have worn glasses and/or contacts all my life – would love to win this! Thanks for the opportunity to be entered for something so wonderful!

  31. Jillian says:

    This is amazing – great giveaway! I have wanted lasik for so long. To wake up and see clearly without having to reach for glasses or put contacts in would be absolutely wonderful!! I’ve also taken up scuba diving. I recently got my certification and am planning to go to Australia next year to dive, so lasik would be perfect!

  32. Leanne hoodl says:

    I would love LASIK eye sugery for myself. I have worn contacts or glasses for 15 years. They get in the way of my everyday life. I can’t wear sunglassesifi wear glasses, I can’t hunt, my glasses bounce when I run. It would be a dream come true to finally see perfect with out all the nonsense in the way.

  33. Erin says:

    My heart almost flat lined when I saw this opportunity! I would LOVE to win this for myself. I have worn glasses since I was in 5th grade and now I’m nearly 36. I’ve wanted to have Lasik done ever since I heard about it, but there’s always something else that comes up that is more pressing like car repairs or medical bills, etc… I would love this because I would love to see again, plain and simple. And to go outside and wear sunglasses without getting dust under my contacts or have to wear glasses all the time would be an amazing gift. Thank you for this chance. :)

  34. Taylar Riley says:

    I can remember sitting in my Kindergarten class praying for cool glasses like one of my girl classmates had. They were rosy pink and even had those holder strings. Less than 2 years later my prayers were answered and I was the owner of a pink pair of plastic rimmed glasses with tint and my very own set of holder strings. And then reality set in. I got the attention too, it was then I realized 4 eyes and coke bottle were not compliments. Luckily I was able to move into contacts in 7th grade once astigmatism contacts were readily available. I have put on contacts every day since. Now I’m a 30 year old mother of 2 who fumbles around for my glasses in the middle of the night to see what time I’m doing late night feedings or to see what the baby is doing on the monitor. I wake up 45 minutes earlier than the rest of the house just to start getting myself ready, because my contacts may not go in easy. It has been just one of those things that are apart of my life. I have to say I’m so thankful for modern day technology and medicine that allows me to see with corrective lenses, b/c boy, what a creek I would be in without it. I can only imagine what life would be like without the hassle. The LASIK procedure is a thought I’ve toyed around with for years but some financial “surprise” always seems to come up that prevents me from going through with it. If I offer any wisdom from personal experience, be careful what you pray for, God really came through in full on my glasses prayer :-p

  35. Tancy says:

    Every time I have to order my contacts I think of having lasik surgery! Every time something goes in my eye and leaves me paralazed for at least an hour while I try to clean and fix my contacts I think of lasik surgery. If you have ever seen the movie “Gattaca” when he takes off his contacts and tries to run across the street THAT’S EXACTLY HOW I SEE without my glasses. I would LURVE to finally be able to live contact/glasses free!!!

  36. Elizabeth says:

    I already had lasik and it’s amazing! I dont miss wearing contacts and even better glasses! It’s be great to gift this to a loved one (most of them have had lasik already) but it’s worth a shot!

  37. Julie says:

    My boyfriend needs LASIK! He knows it and talks about getting it. He often gets eye infections or blood shot eyes after just wearing his contacts for 10 hours. But we are going to be planning our wedding soon and that will take a good chunk of our savings. So the LASIK will keep getting pushed back. :( He would be so relieved to not have to wear his contacts or glasses ever again.

  38. Dee says:

    I have always wanted to get LASIK since I was in high school. I am so ready to be done with contacts and glasses. I struggle with putting contacts in and glasses are such a nuisance.

  39. Tammy Hildebrandt says:

    At first thought I was going to say it would be for me so I could see my beautiful daughter without my glasses, but on giving it a bit more thought I think I might give it to my brother in law. He has been wearing glasses since before grade school. He can’t see squat without them. He has three beautiful children and a lovely wife and I think he could benefit from this even more than I would. I can still see without my glasses, but he can’t. So if I won this, I would give it to him!

  40. Victoria Schuetze says:

    The lasik would be for my husband if I won. He has spent his whole life in glasses, strong ones. I just started wearing them, so figure it is my turn, and he should enjoy the freedom of being without.
