I CAN JUMP IN THE OCEAN WITHOUT WORRY
I went in for a consultation on a Monday, and went for surgery that Thursday.
I got LASIK in both eyes, I opted for the basic version, which makes an incision then uses a laser. There is a newer technology that is all laser, too, but it’s a little more $.
The process is pretty simple, they numb your eyeballs, then have you lie down on the table and hug a stuffed animal. You see the machine come towards you, something holds your lids open, you feel pressure (the cut), then liquid drops, then a brief moment of not seeing, and seconds of laser sound and smell of slightly burnt popcorn. The whole thing is over so fast, by the time you process it, they are already moving onto the second one. I think both eyes took less than 10 minutes total. I slept a lot that afternoon and evening, and was back to work the next day!!!
The staff, including Dr. Wallace, are all VERY nice and professional. Their bedside manner and customer service made me feel at ease the entire time. I went back for my follow up, and they remembered me, and carefully checked both eyes before declaring me “perfect”.
Both of my eyes were so bad, I couldn’t do anything without contacts/glasses for the last 22 years! Now, I have 20/15 in both eyes, no “halo” effect at night, I can finally jump in the ocean without worrying. It is incredible! Do it, you will not regret it.
