I’ve been meaning to write this review sooner, but alas life and work has gotten in they way but better late than never!
I got a referral from 2 friends that had their LASIK procedures from LA Sight with no issues so of course I was very inclined to get a free consultation. The consultation was easy, and they stated whether or not I was a prime candidate for LASIK or any other procedure that they can do (LASIK, PRK). After my consultation, I did my due diligence (WHICH YOU ALL SHOULD DO BTW) and did my own research. What I discovered from my research is summed up in 2 important points:
1) THE DOCTOR: The doctor should be very VERY knowledgeable in his line of work and can clearly identify if you are a strong candidate for LASIK or not. This isn’t no car salesman, and you should question everything that may concern you because this procedure IS PERMANENT. Ask questions relating to you your condition, his experience, the equipment being used (more on that below) and get a second unbiased opinion.
2) THE EQUIPMENT: Almost all LASIK procedures nowadays seem to be automated, and if you got a good doctor who is looking out for your best interest then you got half the equation! The other half is if they have the most up to date equipment/laser. The more up to date, the better the outcome for you. The laser that they use is an FDA approved laser for LASIK called the Wavelight Allegretto Laser (by Wavelight, not by Alcon Laboratories and can be found here on the FDA approved page: fda.gov/MedicalDevices/P…). The process seemed very automated like a CNC machine while Dr. Wallace oversaw and managed the procedure.
After years of contacts, I felt like I had superhuman powers right after my procedure. While light was very sensitive, I was able to see fairly clearly right after the procedure, and the halos and dryness went away after a couple of week per Dr. Wallace.
LASIK isn’t for everyone, and I know that there has been some negative reviews by some individuals below. I can’t speak on their experiences since everyone has a unique situation with their vision, but I can say that I am completely satisfied and thrilled with my experience. Not only that, it was very affordable compared to previous years! I recommend Dr. Wallace to several of my friends and they too will be going in for a free consolation (however, I still tell them to do their own research and not just trust my word. These are YOUR EYES PEOPLE! Do your homework!!!).
