GIVEAWAY from The LASIK Vision Institute

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?

    winning this amazing prize for my husband would be FANTASTIC!!! He is a candidate for Lasik surgery, and this would be life changing for him!!! Thanks for offering such a wonderful prize!

  2. Julliana says:

    I would love to win LASIK. I’ve had glasses since I was 8 years old and for the last 15 years they’ve been so thick that I have to get the chucky plastic frames to hide the lenses…but they still stick out of the edges! It would be so awesome to wake up and see!

  3. Frieda says:

    I would love to get Lasik so that I don’t have to worry about my contact lenses anymore!

  4. Julie says:

    Oh my goodness! Lasik would be a dream come true…I’ve worn contacts/glasses for as long as I can remember. I would LOVE to be able to wake up being able to see!

  5. Jaydee says:

    I would like to have Lasik. I’ve been wearing glasses since the age of 10 and contacts irritate my eyes since they are so sensitive. It would be a blessing to not need my glasses to find my glasses.

  6. julia says:

    I would love to have the surgery for myself. With 2 small kids I have to replace my glasses at least once every 6 months..that gets expensive. My little one broke my glasses 2 times and my oldest 1 time…. I hate to have to spend the money in a plastic frame that will last a few months. And besides …I think I look much better without them :O) ! Thanks

  7. Michelle L. says:

    I would love Lasik for myself. I’m a -5.00 in each eye and would love to see the world with out having to put on my glasses and contacts on everyday, would love to swim, with out the worry that my contact will come out. Crossing my fingers!!!

  8. Christian says:

    I know my wife would love to get lasik. Lately her contact lenses have been bothering her, and she cringes at the thought of having to wear glasses all the time.

  9. Tori says:

    I would love to win because my eyesight is really terrible and as I’m about to have a baby I realize that glasses are more plausible for night time feedings and rocking…and my glasses give me vertigo! ha ha! But really who wouldn’t love lasik?? I think it would be awesome to be free of dry eyes and be able to be awake with my kids in the night see them! ;)

  10. Alexandra says:

    I think this is probably the best giveaway I’ve ever seen. I would love to get lasik done on my eyes. I first started wearing glasses in the 3rd grade and contacts since the 7th. The thing I dislike most about my poor eyesight is that when I wear contacts, which is any time I’m in public, they always turn my eyes red after a few hours and get uncomfortable. Plus, when I go to the waterpark, beach, or just swimming I can’t wear my contacts so I have to rely on my husband to show me around because I can’t see at all without them.

  11. Abbie says:

    I SO need this! When I’m not wearing my contacts or glasses, I can’t even see my husband or baby right in front of me! It’s ridiculous. This is such a great giveaway!! I’d love to be able to feed my child at night without fumbling for my glasses!

  12. Lyndsay says:

    This is the best giveaway I have ever seen! The LASIK would be for me! I’ve worn contacts/glasses since grade school but my kids keep breaking my glasses so at night when I take my contacts out I am completely BLIND. I would love to be free of that!

  13. Amal S says:

    Oh my goodness, I need this! I am blind without glasses or contacts – I can’t even find my glasses if I misplace them without help from my husband! This would be life-changing in a major way!

  14. Kelli says:

    What a wonderful gift!! I would love to have LASIK. I’m a novice photographer so it would be great to shoot without everything going out of focus!

  15. Tara says:

    I would love to win this giveaway!

    I am always so timid in water, such as pools, when playing with my son because I don’t want to be splashed in the face and have water get under my contacts. I would love the freedom of being more carefree while in the water.

  16. Jill says:

    I so know what you mean…I would love to wake up and be able to see the alarm clock.. among everything else! This would be amazing!!

  17. Liz says:

    Weird…I was just daydreaming about life without glasses or contacts. I would love LASIK for myself because I can’t remember a time when I haven’t been able to see unassisted. Every once in a while I fall asleep with my contacts in & wake up thinking I have perfect vision. Ha!

  18. Emily says:

    Wow- I would LOVE to receive Lasik! I have been wearing glasses/contacts since the first grade. What a gift to be able to regain my sight!

  19. Jae Lindsay says:

    Why? Because I never have been able to wear contacts, and seem to only wear my glasses 50% of the time. I’m getting lines by my eyes from squinting too much!

    (oh, and it’s for me, selfishly)

  20. Jessica T says:

    I would love to win this for my husband! His glasses are constantly getting in the way and he loves to play golf and not having to wear the glasses would make his playing experience much better!

    This is an amazing prize HWTM!!! Thank you for giving this away!!!

  21. Holly Morrison says:

    Oh, it would definitely go to my daughter, she has been in glasses since age 2 when she started with bifocals. She’s old enough now and her eyes have improved enough as she grew that the doctor says it could be fixed with lasik now. Would love to give her the opportunity to see what life is like without glasses!

  22. Katie says:

    After having a baby I am realizing how much they love to pull hair, earrings, and of course… my glasses. I keep thinking that I would love to have my eyes fixed so that my son would see me without my glasses!

  23. Laura H says:

    My vision is HORRIBLE! Like cannot-even-type-this-comment-without-my-glasses horrible ha. Plus I have an adorable pair of Marc Jacobs sunglasses that I never get to wear because they aren’t prescription. :(

  24. Liz White says:

    Lasik is one of those things I always wanted but not something in our families’ budget. I would love to wake up in the morning look out a window and really see the world!

  25. I would give the Lasik prize to my husband. I had Lasik 6 years ago and I want to share with him how amazing it really is! His contacts always irritate his eyes so he tends to wear glasses quite a bit. PRETTY PLEASE PICK ME, PICK ME!!!! :)

  26. Amanda W. says:

    I’d love to win this for my husband. He needs to be able to see and has refused to get glasses. This would be wonderful for him. Thanks!

  27. Emily Harrison says:

    I would love to give my husband lasik surgery! He is very active and swimming, biking, etc is near impossible with glasses. His eyes are so sensitive to contacts-but he wears them to do the things he loves. What a great giveaway!

  28. Erin says:

    I’d love to have LASIK because without vision insurance I haven’t been able to make it to the eye doctor to get an updated prescription in over three years. It’s just one of those things that hasn’t made it into my budget. LASIK would be a lifesaver. :)

  29. Jeanmarie says:

    Although I am not normally a winner of these things (I have been entering every contest held at Pioneer Woman for 5 years and STILL no Kitchenaid Mixer!!) I had to enter this one – I am almost 50 years old, have worn glasses since I am twelve, I am divorced with all the financial stresses that come along with it, and this might be my only chance to know what it would be like to see the world without lenses – keeping my fingers crossed!!

  30. Brenda says:

    I would love, love to have this done! My eyesight has been bad since I was a small child. I finally got glasses when I was 15 and could not believe what the trees looked like with their individual leaves! I was so used to seeing “clouds” on tree branches. I have graduated to contacts, but have astigmatism that makes really clear vision difficult. I am restricted on my drivers license to always wear glasses or contacts, but I always tell them I couldn’t even FIND my car without them in! What a blessing this would be!

  31. Carmen says:

    What a great giveaway!! I would love to win this for myself!! It would be like a miracle or a dream come true being able to see again without depending on my glasses ’cause contacts never worked for me!! Thank you so much for this great opportunity!!

  32. Cecily says:

    I would love this. I would use it on myself. I’ve had glasses for 20 years and would love to never have to wear another pair again. What an awsome prize. Thanks.

  33. Tammy says:

    I’m pretty sure I’d give my left arm just to be able to read the clock in the middle of the night!! People with good vision have no idea how lucky they are :)

  34. Amber F. says:

    I have been in glasses literally since kindergarten. What an amazing giveaway!

  35. Christal Tenorio says:

    I would LOVE to win Lasik for myself I’ve been wearing glasses since 2nd grade & now that i have my kids i would rather my contact and glasses money go to them or towards a house. My 2nd baby is on the way and it would be nice to wake up in the middle of the night without having to grab my glasses…It would be a dream come true no more contacts or glasses ;)

  36. Bonnie says:

    Oh how I would love Lasik!!! A few years back I had to stop wearing contacts because of how much time I spend in front of the computer. They’d just dry out and drive me nuts. So – I’m back to glasses and to say glasses interefere with just about everything is an understatement. Just having my eyelashes a hair too long is annoying…they brush against the lens. Adjustments, cleanings, scratches, the expense!!! Who wouldn’t want to ditch glasses forever?????

  37. Jamie Judd says:

    I would love LASIK for myself. I have had glasses since 2nd grade and I am practically blind without my glasses. But I would probably give this to my mom if I won. I know it is something she would LOVE, but might not ever set money aside for herself to pay for it. I would love to win this and surprise her!

  38. Jolene says:

    I would love to win LASIK for my Husband. He has always had glasses/contacts, and finds it very limiting. We have just welcomed baby number 3, and I would love for him to be able to play with his girls with out having to constantly tell them to watch out for his glasses. Thanks for the opportunity!

  39. I would love to win the Lasik giveaway! I’ve been wanting to have the procedure done for a while now, but I simply can’t afford it at the moment. The only time you’ll catch me without my glasses on is when i’m asleep! My coworker had the procedure and said it was so worth it. I would love to be free from my glasses and see clearly!

  40. Karen says:

    I have worn glasses all of my life. It has been difficult to get prescriptions that truly work and help my eye site. Also with no medical insurance and a family, it is often hard to be able to afford doctors visits, or being able to buy a new pair of glasses. I have always wanted Lasik surgery. I feel as if I would have so much freedom if I did not have to depend of wearing my glasses every single day, all day long. Thank you for the contest!!! This is wonderful.
