I spent over ten years poking myself in the eye trying to get my contacts in and feeling comfortable. They would dry up, fall out, roll under my eye lids, get dirt stuck to them, scratch my eyes, and heaven forbid I forget to take them out at night before I fell asleep. Those of you who have contacts know the drill. In 2004, at the age of 26 I finally had enough. I started to research Lasik eye surgery. It had only been available for a relativity short period of time so I was little hesitant to move forward not knowing if there would be any long term issues. I decided to have a consultation and talk to an expert. My doctor had done over 10,000 procedures and was well respected. After meeting with him, I was 110% ready to move forward. It was going to be a quick in and out procedure and I would have 20/20 vision. I set a date to have the surgery done. A couple weeks later I went in and literally 20 minutes later I was walking out the door with the procedure completed. Not only was it quicker than a teeth cleaning, it was painless, and the doctor and staff were pro’s. I got a ride home, went to bed, and woke up with 20/20 vision the next day! No pain, no issues, and almost no recovery time. I was at work less than 24 hours after the surgery. I couldn’t believe it was that easy. I was actually mad that I hadn’t done it sooner in life. It has now been 11 years since my surgery, and I have not had a single issue, and I still have 20/20 vision. Every single time I mention Lasik to friends and family I simply tell them it’s the absolute best thing I have ever done.
