LASEK Laser Eye Surgery Review by Julie Scudder
Aug 1, 2004
Before I had laser eye surgery my life was badly affected by my poor sight. I hated wearing glasses and felt very self-conscious in them. I needed glasses to read and watch TV. I didn't wear them at work as I felt awkward, so I couldn't see much in the office. I go swimming every week and could not see when I was in the pool. I was continuously taking my glasses on and off so people did not see me in them.
Optimax was great. A thorough eye test and a consultation; the consultant clearly described the procedure. I felt some pain and discomfort after the treatment but only for the first 24 hours. It took about two months for my eyes to adjust. The result was nearly 20/20 vision. I was amazed and delighted.
It's so nice not to have to wear glasses, especially at home watching TV, going on holidays, at airports etc. It's changed my life so much; I would recommend it to anyone. I wish I had it done years earlier.
