WATCHED MOVIE SAME NIGHT, NO GLASSES
What a great experience! Friendly staff, almost no waiting time, professional surgeon, clean office, reasonable price, and great results!
First making an appointment was a breeze. You can simply do it online and confirm it with a simple click by email.
Then the office is very clean in nice building, the parking is not the best but I always found free street parking. (Fridays before noon is complicated because of street cleaning).
Then the staff is incredibly friendly and welcoming. The waiting time is very reasonable for a doctor office (never longer than 10-15min for my first free appointment, and I was checked almost instantly the day of the surgery, and the follow up appointment).
The free consultation was thorough and friendly. Have someone drive you though because they put a product in your eyes that dilates your pupils so your eyes are extremely sensitive to light, even with sunglasses and a hat I couldn’t keep my eyes open for more than 30 second outside.
The day of the surgery, a week later, I arrived on time and was taken care of immediately. You can see the other patient getting his surgery done which is kind of scary but it actually looks more painful than it is. They checked my eyes again briefly and gave me a sedative that made me groggy and tired, and made me wait 15min in a “relax” room. Then for the surgery, they have me a teddy bear to hold and a cover. The surgery was fast (less than a minute for each eye I think) and relatively painless (you feel a strong pressure for about 5 seconds). They gave me an eye protective mask that i kept until the next morning (i went to the restaurant with it on haha).
Right after the surgery I fell asleep for an hour but I had no pain. When I opened my eyes after sleeping for an hour they wear kind of stuck a little, and sensitive to the touch which is why you have a mask on. I was able to go eat out and watch a movie the same night, and best of all didn’t need my glasses to watch the movie only a few hours after the surgery!
2 days have past and aside from sensitivity to the touch (very slight though) I need had any pain or any inconvenience! I put the eye drops in regularly and I can see from far!
UPDATE 9/16/14: More than a month has past and my eye sight is perfect! No pain, no particular dryness, and I have 20/15 both eyes!
