I didn’t want to deal with glasses or contacts on my wedding day.
I had been in glasses since she was three years old, and says I’ve never been able to see.
One night at a restaurant, someone accidentally bumped my eye with an elbow. My contact fell out and she had to drive home with only one contact lens in.
At work, I’m on a computer most of the day. My eyes would constantly blink and burn throughout the day.
So, going to the beach was always something I loved to do. But even there I would always have a fear about losing a contact lens in the sand, and I avoided going swimming.
I had also heard stories from friends with kids about the trouble with having to wear glasses and have kids. One friend face-planted in the middle of the night trying to get to a crying baby. I want to have kids, too.
I finally decided it was time to do something about my dependency on glasses.
I love to ride 4-wheelers. When you’re riding 4-wheelers, you can’t wear glasses, and you don’t want to be worried that your contacts would fall out.
I also shoot guns recreationally. Now I can more clearly see my targets, which is great. It’s a lot more fun.
When I first started to explore LASIK it was years ago. I went to a provider who told me that my eyes weren’t ready yet. I was told my eyes needed more oxygen and time before LASIK was an option.
What this provider didn’t tell me was that I had to take out my contacts well before my appointment to properly prepare for the testing. So they never had an accurate reading for my eye’s actual condition.
Now, several years from then, I’m getting married, and I decided it was time to revisit the whole thing. I mentioned it at a work event, and my boss’s husband said that if I was going to do this, Dr. Kameen was the only person I should consider. I took his word for it. As soon as I walked in to Kameen Eye Associates I knew I made the right decision.
I’ve loved my experience. They know my name. Every time I walk in they say hi and know who I am.
My appointments happen right on time. For my first appointment, I took a two-and-a-half hour lunch break because I thought it would be like any other doctor. But I was actually back to my office within an hour.
Dr. Kameen is so nice. He talked to me throughout the entire procedure and told me exactly what he was doing the whole time. I felt completely comfortable
It feels like a miracle. I feel like I have a new life. I never thought I could see like this. I thought having LASIK would be good, but I never thought my vision would be this clear this fast.
