Patient Comments (2)
in Gardendale, AL |
Dr. Hays did my lasix surgery in 2001 My vision was -13 with a -6 astigmatism ~> I couldn't see the big E on the eye chart (I knew it was an E due to shadows etc but I was legally blind without my contacts.) I was going to be happy if I got to wear cute glasses after the procedure! I finally got glasses 4 or 5 years ago, however I rarely wear them except when driving at night. I don't think my vision ever corrected to 20/20, but 20/40 is friggin awesome! One of the best decisions I have made!

Dr. Hays Did my Lasik 16 years ago. I am still 20/20 and only have to wear reading glasses. She is the best.
