Hi, I’m Gima and I’m a patient of Dr. Manger’s. I went through LASIK eye surgery about one month ago and I’ve been very happy since I got it done.
I was having problems with not just being nearsighted, but I started to have farsightedness. It was really a pain switching between the contact lenses and the glasses. Not to mention, I also had astigmatism, which optometrists told me I could never really correct through lenses.
I’m glad I came in. I had been thinking about it for a while. Not only had I heard about Dr. Manger through the radio and through ads, but also I had heard so many great things about him that I decided to come in just for a consultation. I ended up that very same day doing the procedure and the very next day I went to work.
My life has changed tremendously. When I wake up, I can see and when I travel, I don’t have to worry about bringing glasses or an extra pair of contact lenses. I’m an active person so it really has been a blessing. I went running the second day after my procedure and it was just awesome being able to read the street signs and see the trees. It was fantastic!
I think the biggest thing that really stood out was that I wasn’t afraid — I found that the staff had very excellent bedside manner, was extremely professional and comforting, and explained every detail of what was to come. The follow-up was excellent. I’m happy to be able see everything!
