The Patient Experience

My poor vision always made this a challenge because you have to be capable of following your ground guides, reading blueprints, and knowing exactly where to operate. Glasses are difficult to wear safety glasses over and with my contacts, the dirt and debris always made its way to my lenses making it hard to see and extremely uncomfortable when operating... You can’t put a price on quality of life. [I am] thankful for the dedicated and skillful team we have here and the quality of life they can offer individuals one vision correcting surgery at a time.
