"Approaching refractive surgery from a patient's perspective, I appreciate the hopes and concerns that they all have about the precious gift of sight. Since childhood, I was burdened with high myopic-astigmatism. For me to function, I depended on thick glasses or uncomfortable contact lenses. Then, in July of 1994 my life changed. I had laser vision correction! The world became clear for me without lenses for the first time in my memory. I am no longer dependent on corrective lenses to appreciate life. I am grateful for the gift I've been given. As a laser refractive surgeon, and a very satisfied patient, I have been privileged to share this unique experience with many thousands of patients and friends. Every day is a new joy."
