I LOVE SEEING WITHOUT GLASSES
I have been very scared to get Lasik surgery even though it’s been something that I wanted to do for years. There’s so many pros and cons when thinking of an elective surgery and especially when the eyes are so important. After my brother and sister-in-law got their eyes done in Denver, I considered flying over there. They were charged $2,300 for Lasik in Denver. After researching the Lasik centers here in Los Angeles county, most places charge an arm and leg for the procedure. I somehow stumbled along LA Sight through Yelp and his reviews seem good. I called the office to inquire their price and they quoted me $2,300, which is the special on-going price right now for their office. Sepi convinced me to come in for a free consultation the next day, which I did. The staff here at LA Sight are extremely friendly and they didn’t mind me getting there late. I especially liked Dave, who was very patient to answer my millions of questions. Then I continued to bother Dr. Wallace with even more questions. I felt very comfortable with the fact that they calmed my nerves. Dr. Wallace only operates on Thursdays and they space out their patients, so you don’t have to wait in a room full of other people. You don’t have the feeling of being a sardine in a tin can, like other Lasik centers. I read all the Yelp reviews for all the Lasik centers in LA county, so I read how horrible some of these centers can be. LA Sight is very clean and they have plates of chocolates for their patients. It was tempting to grab some and stuff them in my purse. But then I don’t eat chocolate, so it’s probably best that I didn’t. I brought my 2-year old son to every appointment and the staff were constantly trying to make my son laugh. It was nice that they didn’t mind him screaming or trying to cause chaos.
So and so, I got my Lasik surgery done yesterday and today my first post-op check-up. I felt no pain during the surgery and it was very quick. There were a million thoughts racing through my mind. What if I felt all the pain, what if the drops didn’t help at all, what if my flap shriveled up because my eyes were too dry, what if I turn blind and can never see my son again… yadi.. yadi… I also saw a bunch of video blogs on youtube about other people’s experience after Lasik. That all scared me too, of course. But I’m actually very surprised that I had no pains, no dried eyes, no burning, no nothing… I feel so normal, that it’s so weird. Today is only the day after Lasik, so I hope I didn’t speak too soon. Right now my left eye is 20/20 and my right eye is better than 20/20. It’s a great experience and I love seeing without glasses. I also donated my old glassed to LA Sight, so hopefully those glasses will go to a good cause.
Thanks a lot LA Sight. I could type more, but I doubt anyone wants to read it. I’ll see you again in 1 month for my 1 month post-op check-up.
