In April of 2011 I finally decided to have LASIK.
I have worn glasses since the 2nd grade and starting wearing contacts in Junior High School. My prescription progressed to the point that I couldn’t see anything in the distance without correction.
Lasik has always intrigued me and I knew I wanted to have it done one day. During my internships in Optometry school I worked with and performed follow-up visits for patients who had received refractive surgery (LASIK or PRK). I observed that not all surgeons have the same results and patients weren’t receiving the same care as those who went to TLC.
My experience has been extremely positive with post-operative care for my LASIK patients. When it was time for me to have surgery, there was no question in my mind where I would go.
Today my vision is 20/15 uncorrected and my eyes feel great! I never have to deal with my eyes getting dry at night with contact lenses, or fumbling around with glasses just to get out of bed. I am so grateful for Dr. Wexler and his staff at TLC. I love talking to patients about my experience and the technology behind this life-changing procedure. Read more -PDF.
Having LASIK in September of 2015 was one of the best decisions I have ever made.
I like to live an active lifestyle playing sports, exercising, and being outdoors, so LASIK has always interested me. I have had to wear glasses and/or contacts since 3rd grade.
Like many patients, my prescription progressed every year or two into my late teens and early twenties. By the time my prescription stabilized I couldn’t see the big “E” on the chart without correction. Now I am 20/15 without correction and don’t have any end-of-the-day dryness that I used to have with my contacts.
During my internships in optometry school I was able to see LASIK and PRK post-operative patients from a variety of surgeons. It showed me that not every surgeon has the same success rate and not every patient had the same experience. After seeing the success and positive feedback from patients who had surgery with Dr. Wexler at TLC Laser Eye Centers, I knew this is where I wanted to have my surgery done.
Dr. Wexler and the TLC staff provide an excellent service to their patients. They take the time to explain each step along the way—from the consultation all the way through post-operative care. I believe it is their customer service that sets them apart and is the reason why they have such positive feedback from their patients. Read more -PDF.
