My LASIK Eye Surgery Review: How LASIK Eye Surgery Changed My Life
I can’t even begin to fully express to you the impact it has many on my life; there aren’t enough words. Before my LASIK eye surgery I would get frequent headaches. It made simple day-to-day activities less enjoyable because there was always a headache lurking behind the scenes. I don’t know about you, but I also found that my patience and irritability were worse with constant headaches. That’s not fun for anyone.
In addition to the toll it took on my well-being, it was also a huge inconvenience. I would struggle to see the road signs when driving, which often would cause me to miss my exits and arrive late to appointments because I would go in circles trying to find my way. It’s hard to look professional when you can’t even arrive to an appointment on time. First impressions count, people, and I wasn’t making best first impressions. If you think that’s bad, that was during the day. At night it was even worse; there were many times I would have to exit the highway all together because of all the lights making it impossible for me to drive safely.
I didn’t realize how much my bad eyesight was affecting my life. I mean, I knew, but I didn’t really know. I didn’t think that LASIK eye surgery was an actual option for me in the near future, so I tried to not dwell on the negatives and just keep on hustlin. You know, as a mama the show must always go on; so gettin’ on is what I always did. I didn’t know if I really needed it. Sure I wanted it, but did I NEED it. There were so many other things I could be spending the money on that could benefit Honor. Looking back on it all now, I wish I had received the surgery so much sooner.
As a parent though, I worried about the downtime and how the surgery would affect my ability to take care of my daughter. Those fears, I discovered, were so unfounded. If anything this has made my ability to parent Honor so much easier and more enjoyable, and those things I could have been spending the money on to “benefit” Honor instead of my surgery are nothing compared to the benefits we now share together. I am seeing things I never was able to see before. Small moments I missed out on because my eyes didn’t pick up on the details. Life post-LASIK eye surgery is a beautiful, beautiful painting. It sounds silly, but I feel like I’m seeing the world completely differently. I can’t believe all the small things I was missing out on by never taking advantage of good eye care. The positive difference this surgery has made in my life is life changing.
If you’re in the Utah area, I highly recommend using my eye doctors at The Eye Institute of Utah. Dr. Darcy Wolsey performed my surgery; and I knew my eyes were safe in her skilled and accomplished hands. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about the entire team and facilities. They treat you with care, respect, and make your experience and results their top priority.
I was really nervous about the pain and downtime, but I worried for nothing. The staff knows what they are doing, and I was in the best hands possible. Within four hours of my surgery, it was like I was a whole new person who didn’t just have eye surgery that morning. I made Honor sit in front of me for way longer than she would have liked, but I couldn’t stop staring at her face and taking every detail. This is something that I wish I hadn’t waited so long for, and so I’m here to tell you, stop waiting. Your life is waiting for you on the other side of this LASIK eye surgery, and it’s more beautiful than you can even imagine.
The team at The Eye Institute of Utah is so amazing, they are willing to give you a free consultation. Give them a call at 888-611-0070 and mention my name. What could it hurt?! I wish I had done it sooner.
