Vision before LASIK: 20/1400
Vision after LASIK: 20/15
Hi, my name is Adrian. I’m a 20-year-old college student. I had my LASIK procedure with Dr. Manger 2 months ago and today I can see 20/15, which is a vast improvement from my -9.00 prescription before LASIK.
The biggest factor in my decision to have LASIK was that I’ve been tormented by glasses and contacts since I was 6 years old. Once my vision stabilized, I made the decision to have LASIK and I came to Saddleback Eye Center. I shopped around a little bit and there was no doubt in my mind once I came here. I felt safe and I felt comfortable.
You will meet everyone at Saddleback by the end of this process, which is amazing when you consider that at other places, you meet just one person and that’s it. Everyone here is so communicative and absolutely incredible. There is no doubt in my mind that Saddleback Eye Center is the place to go for LASIK. This is the best thing I’ve ever done in my entire life. My most prized commodity is my vision, and you can’t gamble with something like that.
The “ah-hah” moment I had was when I came out of the operating room, and I could see. I didn’t know it was instant! Everyone told me your vision might be a little bit fuzzy for the first few hours, but for me it was only a couple of minutes. I waited 14 years for this one second and it felt absolutely incredible.
The post-op process is so easy. You have one day of rest and then you are back in action. I worked the next day and that whole week. Everything is absolutely incredible here. I was so terrified when I first came in. Don’t let a Navy guy intimidate you at all, because Dr. Manger is the nicest person you will ever meet. He will guide you through the entire process, as will the whole staff.
I can say that this is the single best decision I’ve made in my life and my future because I no longer have to worry about putting on glasses or contacts ever again. I now have the rest of my life to look forward to with perfect vision. I can’t thank Dr. Manger enough.
