Our 2013 Visually Challenged Moment Contest Winner’s LASIK Story

Kelly Catillo’s fictional experience as a new recruit in the army had her longing for LASIK surgery. When the Visually Challenging Moment Contest began, she sent in her story and hoped for the best. To her surprise, she won the contest and has left her “Birth Control Glasses” in the past.

Please describe your LASIK experience at Raleigh Eye Center.

Raleigh Eye Center is amazing. The entire staff is knowledgeable, friendly, and caring. Prior to having LASIK, I was nervous; however, my fears were quickly eliminated by the detailed explanation of the procedure and of what to expect following the procedure. Everything was exactly as explained. The procedure was quick and painless. It’s difficult to believe that something so life changing as LASIK is such a pain less procedure with little recovery time.

What surprised you most about the procedure?

I was most surprised that I did not feel anything during the procedure. The procedure only took a few minutes and was painless.

Describe your post-operative recovery.

My LASIK recovery period was very minimal. I was back at work the next day and I felt great!

Describe your vision the morning after your LASIK procedure.

The morning after the procedure I could actually see! I had never been able to see the alarm clock without glasses or contacts. It’s amazing to be able to see when I wake up!

Would you recommend LASIK to a friend? Would you recommend Raleigh Eye Center to a friend?
