in Nicholson,Ga. |
I had two Lasik surgeries, first was successful and was able to not wear glasses, the second " enhancement " was not successful. A year later and no improvement and no solution . After returning many times with issue of smeared and blurry vision, I am told this is as good as it gets and now back to wearing glasses to help with the poor quality of vision. I have an astigmatism and have now learned that I was not a good candidate. The decision for these surgeries was mine, do your research.

Very caring- it is day 2 and I see better than I did with contacts! The doctor even called me himself to check on me after the procedure.
