THREW GLASSES & CONTACTS IN THE TRASH
We narrowed down consultations to the two top surgeons in LA, Dr. Wallace with LA Sight and Dr. Lee with CCRS. Their prices were within $500 of each other’s, CCRS being the less of the two. After both consults my husband choose LA Sight. His initial call was pleasant, the consultation informative and professional. He scheduled his surgery and received information to take home. A work emergency compromised his initial surgery but LA Sight rescheduled him without any issues.
Surgery day- Upon arrival he was provided the itinerary, a valium and had a chance to ask lingering questions. He opted for a blade-less LASIK method; it was painless and surprisingly quick. They gave him a stuffed animal to hold (he later admitted squeezing the heck out of it under the blanket). I was able to watch the procedure through a glass wall, and zoomed screen while listening on wireless headphones. Dr. Wallace was funny, professional and explained every move while providing encouragement such as “you’re doing great” and “it’s going phenomenal”! I appreciated his fine-tuned bedside manners and killer smile. When my hubby walked out, the staff shouted in unison “congratulations”! With the husband looking super fly in his after surgery shades, we waited in aftercare 30 minutes before being released. Upon departure he received: dry eyedrops, 2 RX drops, one 3 day, one 7 day, and 2 glasses, regular/shaded. He had trouble opening his eyes for 5 hours post-opt, and one eye really irritated him the entire day. He called LA Sight and they reassured him that it was both normal and temporary.
The next morning his irritation was gone. He was so happy he threw his glasses and contacts in the trash, Yippee! The staff couldn’t have been anymore pleasant at his post-opt, and he’s 20/20 baby!
Side notes: Pre-appointment emails contained all necessary pre-opt information. The procedure requires 3 consecutive days for visits. Parking is $18. Touch-ups are not included (he doesn’t need one). Scheduling is easy and the ladies at reception are sweet.
Our experience went off seamlessly in Dr. Wallace’s competent hands.
