Long Island LASIK Reviews


At the age of 14, it had become clear that my vision was not clear. I got my first pair of eye glasses with matching prescription sunglasses and from then on, I felt like a nerd amongst all the "cool" kids in school who were not wearing glasses. Eventually I pursuaded my always nervous and concerned mother that I was ready for contact lenses. 'They're not made out of glass anymore. I'll be fine' I told my mom. With exuberant excitement, I opened my new contact lenses and tried to put them in. Not only was it difficult to figure out which side of the contact lens went on my eye, (even after the doctor showed me multiple times) the burning and itching of my eyes from the contact lenses was severly painful, not to mention dissapointing as I had high hopes for my new lenses. Furthermore, I could not participate and enjoy the activities I liked because of my lenses. Swimming, reading and even playing tennis were no longer enjoyable due to the dryness to my eyes that the lenses caused. I certainly couldn't go swimming with my glasses on and I couldn't see without them. Either way it was hopeless! Fast forward seven years later, I had had enough with glasses and contact lenses. I started looking into lasik. I heard the technology had been perfected and knew many people who had it done. I asked them about their experiences. They all said it was the most life-changing thing they'd ever done. I was intrigued. After hearing radio ads for a certain company for many months, I decided to have a consultation. I was excited and they seemed good, so I made an appointment for my surgery. Luckily before that appointment I saw my regular eye doctor for a checkup and asked her about the lasik company I had decided to go with. "I wouldn't go with them," she said. "You won't get the right tests, surgery and follow up care." She then told me about TLC Laser Eye Centers right near me on Long Island. Trusting her advisement, I visited TLC Laser Eye Centers and there was a world of difference between TLC and the previous place I had gone to. I decided to have my lasik surgery with TLC the following month. Thank goodness I did. They took all the right tests to make sure I was a candidate and the surgeon was extremely nice and precise, explaining everything that would be involved on my surgery day and the days afterward. I felt very excited and confident. 'I'm finally going to get rid of my glasses and contacts for good?!' I thought to myself. No more carrying around a bunch of eye glass cases or bringing solution and contact lenses with me?! Freedom! The surgery at TLC could not have gone smoother. I didn't feel a thing thanks to the numbing eye drops. As my mother watched the surgery, along with my eye doctor, who had come to attend to me, 3 minutes after the first incision, I was off the table walking to the recovery room with perfect vision. It was amazing. I couldn't believe how quickly the surgery went, (a whole 180 seconds is pretty good) and how soon after I had clear vision. Using various drops and protective glasses given to me for the first few nights, as not to scratch the eyes, I was seeing 20/10 the night after my surgery! Heeding the advice of my doctor, I used drops for the next 6 months and now have perfect vision with no dryness whatsoever! When people ask me, what is the best decision you've made in your life so far? Immediately I say, "Getting lasik at TLC." It is literally life changing. It saves so much time and now I can do all the things I love to do without thinking should I wear my glasses? contacts? neither?! If you want a life changing experience and need vision correcting, there is no doubt the best and only answer is lasik at TLC. They take the time to review your situation with friendly, helpful staff who know what they're doing. I'm so happy I had it done. :)
