I am a 23 year old post graduate,a very studious and a 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 boring.
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 sight, far sight and astigmatism and verypopular with the 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 consultation with the LASIK specialist. I was impressed when I came in for the first meeting.I stepped into a clean and pleasant atmosphere. As they say, first impression is the last impression. 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 grandmother glasses. He suggested LASIK surgery.
He explained that it was a very short 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 20x20 vision. I was thrilled. No more glasses, no more nick names.
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.
