Dear Dr. Manger,
I have worn high-prescription (-9) glasses since the age of 2. This precluded me from playing many sports and always made me feel self conscious and a little awkward. Contact lenses were a huge improvement but had their own set of limitations and drawbacks.
The gift of sight, unaided by any vision correction devices, is a true miracle. I had been told that my astigmatism and severe prescription would preclude me from LASIK surgery. To have found a gifted surgeon such as yourself has forever improved the quality of my life.
