I am a 23-year-old postgraduate,a very diligent and hard-working girl. All through my school and college life, I had to wear glasses. I was called names like “four eyes” “book worm” which gave me such a complex that I started seeing myself as seriously dull. After my post-graduation, I decided to unwind to have fun in life and also get a job. The first on my to-do list was to get rid of my soda-bottle glasses. I checked out the available technology and got to know about Lasik treatment. Lasik surgery is a popular procedure to correct sight problems like short-sightedness, far-sightedness and astigmatism. It is popular with youngsters who do not want to wear spectacles. After checking out with friends, I zeroed in on Centre For Sight (CFS), as it was closest to my residence and had the best reviews. I took an appointment for a consultation with a LASIK specialist. I was impressed when I came in for the first meeting. I stepped into a clean and pleasant atmosphere. As they say, the first impression is the last. I met with a consultant, and after checking my eyes, he said I was short-sighted. I asked the consultant if there was a procedure which could restore my eyesight and get rid of the glasses. He suggested LASIK surgery. He explained that it was a concise procedure, performed under local anaesthesia. In this procedure, the cornea is adjusted to let light enter and get perfect vision. We fixed on a date, and I went through some blood tests. The day of the procedure arrived. After an early dinner the previous day, I went to the Centre on an empty stomach for an 8 am procedure. The surgeon put eye drops which numbed the area and did a quick procedure in no time at all. I was asked to come for review the next day and was very pleased because now I had a 20×20 vision. I was thrilled. No more glasses, no more nicknames! Not only did I recover my vision, but I also got back my self-confidence. Armed with my confidence and my degrees, I am ready to take on the world. Thank you, Centre For Sight .
