It doesn’t get much happier than this! A 23-year-old patient met up with eye surgeon, Dr. Wietharn. Her high degree of nearsightedness made it impossible to navigate without glasses or contacts. She hoped to explore options for iLASIK, (total-laser vision correction)
Casidhe is an optician’s apprentice and has a bit of background in eye care to say the least. She was careful about choosing her surgeon and made the rounds to several LASIK centers before choosing The Harman Eye Clinic staff and Dr. Wietharn.
Like every patient here, Casidhe was treated as an individual with her specific vision requirements, the health of her eyes beyond nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism, her age and her lifestyle. And, like every patient, Dr. Wietharn and staff took the time to carefully weigh the risks and benefits and possible need for a refinement surgery in her case.
“I felt ready, and I felt like I knew what was going to happen. [Dr. Wietharn] was very straightforward and honest,” Casidhe told us after surgery.
At her 1-day post-op visit, Casidhe saw 20/30 with both eyes, and she was thrilled. She had achieved legal-to-drive without glasses or contacts at day one! Dr. Wietharn had prepared her with realistic expectations and she was a happy camper at day-one.
“Would you recommend iLASIK,” we asked. She answered, “Oh, yeah. Just do it, it’s amazing. Even if this vision only lasted 10 years, I would be happy with it.”
This positive spirit paid off. At her 1 week visit, Casidhe could read the 20/15 line without correction. And, as stated at the beginning, It doesn’t get much happier than this!
Congratulations, Casidhe. We never get tired of helping people achieve their vision goals.
