Josh Hansen the Surfer, Skydiver and Extreme Exercise Nut – LASIK

I always thought my vision was pretty decent while wearing my contacts, but now that I’ve had LASIK, I see clarity and color on a whole new level. I honestly can’t believe I waited 15 years to do this. Life changing doesn’t begin to describe it.

All of my favorite things to do, surfing, skiing, golf, you name it, are so much more enjoyable without the hassle of contacts or glasses.

I travel a lot for work and fun. During my last trip, I didn’t need to worry about being stopped in the airport security line because I didn’t need to bring any contact solution. It’s amazing how much easier life is now….I don’t worry about losing a contact lens in the ocean when I’m surfing, my lenses drying out or any other of the MANY annoying inconveniences that go hand in hand with wearing contacts. It’s priceless. Life is so much better with perfect vision.

Some friends of mine, who I would trust with my life, referred me to Gordon Schanzlin New Vision Institute Institute and I’m so glad they did. From the moment I met Dr. Gordon and his staff, I felt super comfortable and knew right away they were the team to trust with my eyes. The only regret I have is that I waited this long to have the procedure!
