STILL PINCHING MYSELF
Perfect experience start to finish. This office wants to crush the competition.. bad. You can tell Dr. Wallace runs a tight ship immediately upon entering the office. They’re attentive and super-friendly.. but not annoying-friendly.. just positive and real. I went in for a consultation for LASIK on a whim. A Yelp whim.. you know.. where you’re just kinda cruising Yelp and the next thing you know you’re heading to a business because their reviews are really good?
At my free consultation they did a full eye exam, including taking all of my eyeball measurements with their fancy machines in case I wanted to go ahead with the LASIK. The technician who helped me was lovely.. kind and seemed to really know her stuff. Then I met Dr. Wallace.. this guy’s great. Just like all the other reviews. He’s a friendly, funny, straight-shooting guy. Answered all my questions.. did NOT rush me. This was one of the biggest deal-sealing factors at the office. I want to feel like my eyes are important to them.. because they sure as hell are to me, y’know? I’m not just gonna run around paying anyone to cut my eyeballs then shoot them with lasers.. I gotta trust you. And I did with them.
Anyway, surgery was truly easy. Dr. Wallace talks you through every step of the surgery, and hey.. It was really easy. I’m sure millions of people shy away from this surgery out of fear. Let me tell you.. it’s alllllll good. You’re numb, they’re pros, it’s fast, no problem. Discomfort: 3 out of 10, Pain: 1.5 out of 10.
I woke up the next morning with freaking perfect vision. Like the doc says, your eyes are dry for a bit.. he said up to 2 weeks.. for me it was about 3 or 4 days. Today, two and a half weeks after surgery I’m still pinching myself every time I open my eyes. Contact lenses were the worst. LASIK is the best. Thanks Dr. Wallace and everyone else at the office..
UPDATE 2/17/17: I forget what it was like to wear contacts. Almost three years later and I’m problem-free (knocks on wood). Still love it.. still one of the best things I’ve ever done for my quality of life.
