Below is a testimonial from someone who recently underwent Lasik surgery. It discusses the reasons the individual chose Lasik and the results of the surgery.
After years of wearing glasses I decided enough was enough. I was tired of paying for new glasses every six months or so and the expense of wearing them began adding up. I was careless with my glasses and somehow the lenses always wound up scratched even though I spent extra money for the scratch resistant lenses. After a close friend of mine had a successful experience with Lasik surgery, I decided to look into the procedure. I hit the internet and began my search for San Diego Lasik surgeons.
I quickly learned that Lasik surgery is now one of the most performed elective procedures done in the United States. I began to feel more at ease upon realizing the surgery must be safe and effective if so many people are getting this procedure. My close friend also assured me that she had a very speedy recovery time and was back at work the next day.
Through my research I learned that Lasik surgery involves using a laser to make a flap in your cornea. The flap in your cornea is then repositioned and this is what corrects your vision. The surgery has been conducted nearly 1,000,000 times with a very high success rate.
After I completed my preliminary research, I found a great surgeon and made a consultation appointment. The doctor assured me that everything would run smoothly and was extremely comforting. I really appreciated the time the doctor spent with me going over all the questions I had.
I was certainly nervous the morning of the procedure, but the moment it was done I had the best feeling in the world. I knew that my days of glasses were long gone and the next day I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. I was reading and driving without the aid of glasses. It truly is a miraculous feeling to do simple tasks without needing your glasses.
If you’re tired of fiddling with contacts and glasses, I urge you to look into Lasik. There are great San Diego lasik surgeons out there who can give you crystal clear vision for the rest of your life. You’ll never miss the days of waking up blind and stumbling into the bathroom to find your eyewear. From the day your surgery is completed, you will see the world in a whole new light.
