Laura, why LASIK and why did you choose our office?
After wearing gas permeable contacts for over 20 years, my eyes were pretty much done wearing contacts. I was tired of my eyes being red and dry from daily contact wear--Lasik surgery was a great option for me. I didn't want to have to wear glasses all the time and was glad to be a candidate for Lasik. Dr. Tahir explained the process in great detail and made me feel comfortable and confident with the decision to have Lasik surgery.
What were you most afraid or concerned with going in?
Honestly, I was nervous about my eye being held open for the surgery with the clip! Initially I was worried about the accuracy and precision of the machinery, but after learning about how the laser works and how the machinery functions, that alleviated my concerns.
Was there any pain during the procedure? What would you tell others?
There was no pain, just pressure in my eyes during the surgery. I was definitely more nervous than I needed to be. I did get valium before the procedure, but feel another one would have helped!
How was the day of the surgery?
The actual surgery only took about 14 seconds per eye! I was in the office for several hours from when I checked in, had the surgery, and was checked by the doctor before I left. Pretty amazing!
Any regrets with the procedure? Anything you would do differently?
I have no regrets with the surgery, other than I should have done it years ago.
How has the service been for you with our office regarding your care?
Dr. Tahir provided such excellent pre and post op care. He was very thorough in his examinations and kept in touch with me to make sure everything continued to go well after my surgery. Dr. Tahir made me feel at ease about having Lasik surgery. He provided me with all the information I needed to feel comfortable and confident to have Lasik. I knew I was in good hands!
Lastly, would you still recommend LASIK?
ABSOLUTELY! It is so amazing to me that within a matter of seconds, my eyesight became 20/20! It is great to never have to worry about having another "contact attack" if a particle of something gets in my eye ever again! I just wake up and go! I am free from the redness and dryness I felt with wearing contacts and always just grinned and beared it. It was a wonderful decision to have the surgery.
Do it, you won't regret it!
Do it, you won't regret it!
Most LASIK procedures are under 2 min per eye and patients are driving or golfing the very next day.
Up to 24 month no interest financing is available, making LASIK a very affordable option for patients.
With today's LASIK technology we are able to get most people to 20/20 or even better vision.
