Last week, one of Grin Eye Care's Optometrists, Dr. Emily Enright had LASIK surgery and was given the most precious gift: 20/20 vision!! Thanks to the expertise, skill and outstanding care of our very own surgeon, Dr. Jeff Wongs, Dr. Enright is now able to experience perfect vision without glasses or contacts!
Dr. Enright had been anxiously awaiting this day for several years. After her prescription finally stabilized, she jumped at the opportunity to have her vision corrected with LASIK surgery. She tells us, "I have been wearing glasses since 3rd grade and have been completely dependent on my glasses and contacts for everything I do. My prescription is very high (a -8.00...for those of you that can relate) so even being able to see the numbers on the clock next to my bed was impossible without fumbling around my nightstand for my glasses. I have been wanting to have my vision corrected with LASIK for several years so this is one of the most exciting things I have ever done! It was so fun to experience this from the patient perspective, too! The procedure itself was painless and the entire experience, from the initial evaluation to the surgery itself, was totally stress free. Dr. Wongs was there every step of the way to ensure I knew exactly what was going on and he was always there to answer any questions I had. I am forever thankful to Dr. Wongs for performing this surgery and for taking such good care of me throughout this entire process."
Dr. Wongs, a board certified Ophthalmologist and Cornea Specialist, has performed hundreds of LASIK surgeries and he says, "I feel very fortunate that I was given the opportunity to make such a difference in people's lives".
You've probably heard the quote, "a picture says a thousand words". The photo above of Dr. Wongs and Dr. Enright is the perfect example that. Dr. Enright says, "This photo, captured candidly, shows the very first moment after I sat up after the LASIK procedure was finished and I was able to read the time on the clock on the wall...something I haven't been able to do since I was 8 years old. It was one of the most special, most wonderful moments I have ever experienced and it is a moment I will never forget. This has been truly life changing".
