I did have LASIK surgery

I did have LASIK surgery at Commonwealth Eye Surgery. I couldn’t be more happy with the outcome. I am a 46 year old women and have worn glasses since I was 7 years old. I remember after getting my first pair of glasses, I stepped outside with my mother I said, “Mommy the trees are so pretty”.

Needless to say, I needed glasses long before I received my first pair. My eyes were a little worse each time I went for my annual exam up until about the age of 35. I was severely near sighted. The ‘E’ on the chart was not visible without correction. I made an appointment with your office for my free evaluation. I knew it was Karma when the friendly technician asked me to remove my glasses and the hinge on my glasses broke and couldn’t be repaired. After a very thorough exam I was told I was candidate for LASIK.

I scheduled my surgery before I left. On the day of surgery I was more excited than nervous. The surgery was quick and fairly painless. Dr. Ferguson helped me to sit up and the for the first time I knew I could see across the room. I can’t tell you how emotional that was for me. Just that morning I had to put on my glasses to see the clock that was 2 feet from me on the night stand.

It was really just a miraculous experience. I felt that Dr. Ferguson was as excited for me as I was. I know he’s seen these same results many times before, but he couldn’t have been more kind and didn’t try to minimize my experience and I knew at that moment that I had made the best decision I could have made. I went home and followed Dr. Ferguson’s instructions to a tee. The next morning I opened my eyes for the first time since the surgery and I could SEE!

As my husband was driving to the office for my post-op exam I was looking around like a kid in a candy shop. I never hoped to be corrected to 20/20, but I was getting very excited, because I could see and I could see a good distance. The post-op went great. Not only was I 20/20 but the Dr. said he couldn’t tell that I had surgery.

All my follow up visits have been the same. Still 20/20 and no issues. I couldn’t be more pleased with the results and don’t think I could find a more thorough, competent and compassionate group of doctors and professionals. It has been a life changing experience and I would and have recommended Commonwealth Eye Surgery to my friends and family. Thank you for following up. It’s been a while since I’ve had the surgery and it’s been great to tell the story one more time.
