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 am horribly nearsighted and for me, wearing glasses and contacts is such a hassle. I recently went through a divorce, had a daughter, and have been reinventing myself and starting over. The journey has been quite challenging but very rewarding and I am enjoying myself so much. I changed my hair color from brunette to blonde, I am dressing in styles I never thought I would, and no longer wearing glasses or contacts would be the cherry on top. :)

  2. Kim P says:

    I have always wanted this done! A bunch of people I know have had the procedure, and have loved it!! I am a graphic designer, so having good vision is a huge part of my job. I have worn contacts and glasses for the past 15 years, and its time consuming & expensive! Crossing my fingers : )

  3. Jaylene says:

    It would be the simple things — I would love to see the clock next to my bed in the morning.

  4. Abby says:

    I would love to have lasik done! I’m sick of spending so much to get my eyes checked and buying contacts and glasses. It’d be amazing to wake up and be able to see. I hate waking up in the morning and scrambling for my glasses or when I’m out and my contacts get really dry and i want to rip them out of my eyes.

  5. Stacy Bennett says:

    I would love to win the LASIK procedure! I have been wearing glasses/contacts since 1st grade! My eye sight is SO bad that I can’t see my alarm clock at night without my glasses. With baby #2 on the way any day, it would be great to have LASIK done for all those late night feedings!

  6. Angela Duncan says:

    I would LOVE to have lasik so I could leave behind the expense and inconvenience of contacts and glasses. It would be pretty amazing to be able to see when I get up in the middle of the night or first thing in the morning!

  7. I would love to be the luck winner of this prize!!! I have been wearing glasses/contact lenses since high school. My eye sight has gotten so much worse over the years and recently have not been able to wear my contacts. It makes it really difficult as a photographer to not be able to see clearly through my lens. Winning this would make my life so much better!

  8. Falon says:

    Wow! I would so love to win this prize! I am an English teacher and reading thousands of essays every year has done a number on my vision! I would love to be able to wake up in the morning and see clearly for the first time in many, many years. What an amazing opportunity!

  9. Emilie says:

    I would love to win Lasik for myself. I would love to not have the hassle of classes/contacts, especially for camping, watching my daughter in the pool, and general comfort. Hope I win!

  10. Casey says:

    I would LOVE to win this surgery! I am a nurse, and cannot really wear glasses at work – they are always falling off my face! And contacts irritate my eyes, so I constantly just can’t really see! This would be wonderful for me!

  11. Cassie says:

    I would love to get LASIK surgery because I have worn glasses since 1st grade and have dreamed of never having to wear them again. Although not blind in the typical sense, my vision is so bad that I am considered legally blind. It would be wonderful to be able to get up in the morning and see without putting my glasses on or my contacts in and to not have to carry around contacts because I loose them.

  12. Nicole says:

    I would LOVE to win a free LASIK surgery for myself. I’m 27 years old and have had vision problems since I can remember. I am a new mom and would like not only to see clearly through my own eyes buy also through the eyes of our new bundle of JOY (minus having to grab a pair of goggles to tell the difference between a boo boo and REAL booboo, if you get my drift). And, yes, it’s really that bad.
    Thank you for the opportunity for such a great giveaway!

  13. Shalyce Hokanson says:

    I would love love love LASIK because I have developed an eye condition basically from contact over use. I get big headaches and my eyes itch and hurt with contacts, but I can not stand wearing glasses. LASIK would be so amazing!

  14. christina says:

    I would LOVE to win this Lasik procedure for myself. I’ve had to use glasses/contacts for over 20 years and to be free of the gear required for my bad eyesight (contacts, glasses, contact solution, contacts case, etc) would be priceless. I can’t tell you the amount of times I’ve forgotten contact solution on overnight trips. I’m sure my husband would also like for me to get this as he won’t have to make trips to walgreens in the middle of night to get my contacts solution!

  15. coralee says:

    OOOOOH! I would LOVE to have the procedure done. I’ve worn glasses for as long as I can remember and have always longed to see when I’m swimming or in the rain etc. Dream to come true?

  16. paula batton says:

    I would love Lasik surgery. I have two crazy boys, that jump from the pool to playing ball so quickly and I have to wait in put in my contacts so often. It would be great not to have to slow down their momentum by having to do so.

  17. Jessica says:

    My eye sight is not that bad, however, everyone in my family is blinder than bats. I could balance a wobbly table with my mothers glasses lenses. That said, if I should win, it would be for her!

  18. Melissa Norelli says:

    Every morning when my kids come into the bedroom I have to say…”Wait one minute until I get my glasses/contacts so I can see you”. I would love to clearly see their faces…they are so happy to see me…I hate missing their first morning expressions because I am blind as a bat : )

  19. summer parker says:

    I’ll be first to say the idea of the surgery sounds scary. Or maybe I’m a scary person :-). But I would love to not have to wear glasses or contacts anymore. I would love to just be able to wake up in the morning and see instead of having to grab my glasses first. I would love to be able to stop poking at my eye to put in and take out contacts. I love to stop feeling the irritation contacts can give my eye. I would defiantly choose my brother to have this with me since he’s a college student and would love to stop wearing contacts and glasses. We would both love to not have to deal with the over all discomfort and hassle with glasses and contacts period. SO PICK ME! :-)

  20. melaniekahl says:

    I have a terrible astigmatism. This means that even when I wear contacts, I’m uncomfortable. The thick toric lenses never seem to make it through the day and my face is bogged down by glasses (okay – they are kind of cute).

    I’d love lasik to make my glasses more of a fashion choice than an optical necessity!

  21. RENEE BELL says:

    I would really LOVE to win the FREE LASIK surgery for my WONDERFUL husband!! He has worn glasses since 3rd grade and can’t see a thing without them!! He always puts the needs of our family ahead of his own needs, so this surgery has always been put on the back burner….

  22. Stephanie says:

    Lasik is something I’ve been considering for a long, long time. Contacts have really started bothering my eyes and I’ve recently switched to daily contacts…. waaay more expensive! What a dream it would be not to have to worry about contacts and glasses anymore!

  23. erica c says:

    I have been dreaming of having Lasik for years! Oh please, oh please, oh please, oh please!!!! :)

  24. Sharon says:

    If I won, I would have my husband get the Lasik. He actually did it before, but it it seems you need to have touch ups as he is wearing glasses now. He’s very active with our kids, so not having to wear glasses would be awesome!

  25. Christina says:

    I would love to get Lasik! This is something that I have always wanted to get but can just never justify spending that kind of money on myself. It is just such a pain wearing contacts. I love ridding with the car window down, ridding in a boat and other things like that but end up irritated the whole time because of the wind drying my contacts out. Also going anywhere is such a pain – do I have my glasses, contact case, solutions blah…blah…blah. I can’t imagine would it would be like to wake up in the morning and actually be able to see the clock!!!

  26. Danni says:

    It would be for me. Ive worn glasses since i was about 12 but was always very self concious so i never really wore them as i was always teased so that made my eyes even worse. At the age of 29 im well aware of having to wear them all the time or else i cant see a thing. And im terrified of contacts weird i know. Im also terrified of laser surgery but know how amazing that oppurtunity woould be. I would love to be able to see.

  27. amybrooks says:

    I would give the surgery to my husband. He can’t see a thing without his glasses or contacts. It would be great for him to be able to see his family first thing in the morning. He is a great dad to my son (his step son) and a fabulous husband, much more than we could ever have hoped for!! It would be an honor to be able to give him this very amazing gift. I worked for an optometrist a few years ago. We had the privilege of working with the LASIK Vision Institue and I trust them 100%. It would be a dream come true for him. And peace of mind for me because I know he would be in good hands! Thanks for this oppurtunity.

  28. dvdsie says:

    I have worn glasses since first grade, it would be awesome to not have to worry about contacts or glasses anymore!!

  29. Carla says:

    LASIK would be an AMAZING gift for my husband! He has had terrible eyesight his entire life and always tells me he feels like a prisoner to his contacts/glasses. I would definitely gift it to him and he would be ELATED!!! To be able to wake up and watch TV without having to put on his glasses?!? Yeah he would LOVE it!

  30. I am SO excited at the chance to win this! I have horrible vision… it is BAD! I am a young mom to 4 beautiful little ones and lasik is just not in our budget! I would love to have lasik! It would change my life! I used to wear contacts, but recently had to switch to glasses full time and I hate it! Thank you for the opportunity! :)

  31. Ashlie says:

    I have been wearing glasses since the third grade and my vision is so bad that without them everything unless it’s an inch away from my face is a complete blur. I’ve always wanted the surgery but I know that we will never be able to afford it with all of our other expenses. I know it would be life changing and give a much needed boost to my self esteem. That’s why I would be thrilled to win Lasik eye surgery!

  32. Amanda says:

    I would like to win Lasik for my husband. He’s talked about having it done for a while, but with the price tag, it probably won’t happen for several years at least! This would be wonderful!

  33. Johanna Lee says:

    i would lve to be able to wake up and be able to see clearly, not have to worry about dry eyes from contacts, contact solutions and cases for flights. this would be a dream to win.

  34. AshleyCW says:

    This is an amazing contest. I would love to have LASIK because it would provide me with…freedom!! I can be free without glasses and contact lenses. My 6 month old daughter is obsessed, I mean OBSESSED with my glasses so I barely wear them. I also would love to be able to wake up and can see farther then my arms can reach.

  35. Kim O. says:

    Would LOVE to win this for my hubby! I got LASIK a few years ago and feel guilty that he’s still blind as a bat;-) I know he’d be thrilled! Thanks for the awesome giveaway HWTM!!!

  36. Kimiko says:

    Although I do not have perfect vision, I would like to win this prize for my mom. She’s worn glasses since as long as I can remember, but has never had the money to afford things like this for herself. Especially during these times, since she is taking care of her aging mother and her brother, who has down-syndrome and now recently diagnosed with alzheimers…she never has money or time for herself, so I really think she deserves a break!

  37. Dessica says:

    I would use the Lasik for myself. I would love to be able to see my baby without having to search for my glasses in the middle of the night or put in contacts that irritate my eyes all day. That would be life changing!!

  38. Diane Summers says:

    This would be for ME!! I have terrible vision. I am so tired of wearing glasses, but I can not see as well through contacts. I miss my sunglasses! I have been wanted LASIK surgery for years. My mom had it done where she can see far with one eye and close with the other…technology is crazy these days!!

  39. Patty Atkins says:

    You have no idea how long I have wanted this. I have worn glasses since the age of 10. The big E is blurry….I go into a panic when I knock my glasses off the nightstand….do not water ski anymore because just don’t like not being able to see when I do. Oh I could go on and on.

  40. Kelly says:

    I would love to win Lasik so I no longer feel trapped and held back by my glasses. My vision is horrible and keeps getting worse.
