Richmond LASIK Reviews


I had been thinking about laser eye surgery for probably a decade, when a friend posted on Facebook that she could see again. It got me thinking and I made the appointment for a free consultation. I wasn't sure if I'd qualify because of astigmatism, but the process has come a long way since I first started hearing about it. I ended up having PRK rather than LASIK, but its almost the same process.

The staff at TLC Richmond is excellent. Everyone there made me feel welcome and comfortable, and addressed all my fears and questions. I'm sure we all go in asking the same questions..."What if I can't hold my eye open or blink?", "What if my eye moves when the laser is working?", "What if I accidentally rub my eyes while they are healing?". My questions and concerns were numerous, and they addressed each one with sincerity, even though I'm sure they hear it day in and day out! (By the way, you don't have to worry about holding your eye open...they have a device for that. And the laser tracks your eye movement and automatically shuts off it anything goes wrong.) There's really no way you can mess up the surgery...they've thought of everything. They know you are nervous and go so far as to offer valium before the procedure!

The procedure itself happened so fast! I was nervous but Dr. Whitten was great. He told me just enough of what was going on to make me confident things were going well, but without getting graphic about it! When I comes to my eyes, I don't want anything or anyone touching it!! I was done in less than 10 minutes, and really didn't feel much of anything. My job was to look at the little red light, and that's what I focused on! My only regret was that I didn't think to ask my mom to video my procedure! Afterwards I wanted to know what it looked like!!

PRK has a longer recovery time than Lasik...they said one month after PRK your vision is equivalent to a person a week out from getting Lasik. I had my surgery one month ago and am seeing 20/20 with both eyes, 20/25 individually, and it will continue to improve and get crisper over the next few months. I've not had any problems with night vision beyond the first week.

It's so nice to wake up and be able to read the clock and see the television! And not worrying about uncomfortable contacts or glasses that get in the way at the gym!! TLC Eye Centers do one thing, and they do it well! If you are considering getting your eyes done, I highly recommend it!
