AFTER 15 YEAR, I CAN SEE WITHOUT GLASSES
I decided to get Lasik on a complete whim! I booked a consultation 24 hours in advance and the staff was incredibly accommodating.
The consultation was quick and informative. The nurses ran some tests and Dr. Wallace walked me through the process, options, and told me about the tests that were done and the results that came from them. It turned out that my eyes were in the perfect range for Lasik. Score! He helped me choose the best option financially, and healthiest for my eyes. I scheduled my surgery for 2 weeks later on the spot. They block off all day Thursdays for surgeries and usually have openings.
One week before the surgery I went in and had my eyes dilated. Additional tests were done. They check your vision multiple times before surgery to ensure they have the most accurate numbers.
On the day of surgery, I saw a different doctor for pre and post op than Dr. Wallace, who performed the surgery. He was great and helped calm my nerves. Once I was prepped I went into the surgery and voila, 20 minutes later, it was done.
The only scary part is that you can basically see everything as it’s happening. I got the MK which is where they make a slit in your eye and then do the laser. They have a tool to keep your eyes open so no need to worry about that. It smells like burning hair when they turn the laser on but they warn you of that so as not to alarm you. Dr. Wallace walked me through the entire surgery as it was happening and made sure to keep me informed of everything he was doing and how it was going. They also gave me a blanket and stuffed animal which was nice!
Recovery was not even 24 hours. I woke up the next day, drove myself to a follow up, and was already seeing 20/20.
Overall, staff is great! They have chocolate in their waiting room and always offer coffee and water. Great service, great people.
For the first time in 15 years I can see without glasses or contacts. Thanks LA Sight!
