I am a recovering Myopic. I have been a myopic for more than 40 years. I have been wearing glasses or contact lenses since I was in the seventh grade. I thought I had found a cure with soft lenses. They made my eyes feel more comfortable. Over the past years, I have researched the new procedures, and when LASIK was introduced I found this procedure to be the least invasive. After my initial screening, I knew this was for me. I put my trust in God and Dr. Kiley and his capable team. They explained completely all the steps, expectations and complications. The day came for my first procedure, my left eye — it was painless and quick. I rested that afternoon and only had infrequent burning sensations. The first day as I peeked through the openings in my shield, I thought, boy, I can see. The next day as we drove to Durham for the second procedure, I could read the license plates on the cars ahead of us. I thought, how amazing! The second procedure went just as well. Post-op, my left eye was 20/20 and right eye was 20/25. I couldn’t believe it. There aren’t enough adjectives to describe this newfound freedom. At last, I can watch TV without glasses or lenses. I wake up in the morning and I can see the clock! It is wonderful! I do not have longevity yet, but I take each day one at a time and enjoy it to the fullest. I recommend this procedure for anyone who meets the criteria. You will not regret your decision. Many thanks to Dr. Kiley and his team!
