I got my LASIK surgery at a crucial time in my development as an athlete. A year before, I made some huge changes in my health and well being. I’d been dedicating myself to getting fit, and during my training, my glasses would constantly get in the way. My night vision was terrible, and when I’d train in the winter, they’d fog up all the time. In the fall, when leaves covered the ground on the trails where I ride mountain bikes, my depth perception would get all out of whack. If I was going to keep getting better as an athlete, I knew I needed to get my vision corrected.
I came to Kameen Eye Associates because they are simply the best. Dr. Kameen has decades of experience, and that plus the humanity – the true compassion – of the rest of the staff really put me at ease.
The whole experience was so comfortable. The atmosphere of the Kameen office isn’t like any doctor’s office I’ve ever been to. It’s soothing; you really feel like you’re being taken care of as a person, as well as a patient.
I was surprised at how much of a difference LASIK made in riding. When I got back out onto the trails on my mountain bike, it was like a whole new world. I could see everything, and the improvement to my depth perception was incredible.
My laser eye surgery transformed the way I compete. I can see everything, and can react to obstacles and challenges earlier than I was able to before my procedure; it’s given me incredible reflexes!
So much fun.
