LASIK CHANGED MY LIFE
Dr. Wallace was amazing! I did what many people did and called 25 offices to narrow it down to 4 that I went to visit for a consultation. I have an ophthalmologist whose husband does the procedure, but wasn’t sure he was the one for me!
After my consultation, Dr. Wallace sat with me for a good period of time and answered every silly question I had, even about pricing. Many reviews are about the staff, Dr. Wallace and how incredible they are, because really that matters the MOST. I had a good gut feeling when I was leaving and made my appointment that same day (for 3 weeks later).
The procedure itself is just soooo incredibly nerve wracking. I have bad anxiety to begin with, but thought I better not take Xanax ahead of time if they were going to give me something. My only advice to those preparing who get very anxious would be to take something BEFORE you go in. As with most sedatives, they don’t work once you are already hyped up and that was the case. The actual surgery was simple, I really liked that Dr. Wallace and Karen talked me through the entire thing and that the lasers counted down. It made me feel very at ease, although I’m pretty sure I stopped breathing for a little (LOL). Entire procedure was like 3 mins total but with eye lid tape, clamps etc I was in there for about 12 mins my mom said.
I was pretty nauseous after from all of the anxiety settling, but I’m two days post-op as I write this and I am seeing 20/20. My eyes are so good that I tried to open up my contact case to take out my contacts before bed last night. There is a bit of discomfort and adjustment from light to dark and sensitivity to bright lights, but I imagine that will all fade over time. The drops they prescribe really soothe my eyes and I am looking forward to the future of my new eyes! Thanks so much Dr. Wallace, I was looking for this to change my life and it has 100% after only 2 days! Total cost for all laser option was $3,500.
