Doctor Wallace says:

As the well-known animator of Rugrats, Lynn's drawing says it all. Starting out so nearsighted, it's almost inconceivable to contemplate being able to see the world clearly without external devices like glasses or contacts. In a nutshell, that's exactly what LASIK does -- by sculpting the desired optical correction into the collagen layer of the cornea. Overnight Lynn went from being profoundly nearsighted to seeing clearly at all distances.
