Did you have to wait long after you arrived for your appointment?
I was very nearsighted since I was a child. I wanted LASIK, but was afraid to have it done. I was sick of not being able to see without my CONFINING contacts or glasses. So I did my research and people I respect kept telling me to go to Dr. Connie McCaa and no one else for LASIK. Everyone agreed: Dr. McCaa had the most experience, the most success and the best LASIK equipment. So I got LASIK from Dr. McCaa and I have NEVER had a better medical experience in my life.
She and her great staff talked me through it and the procedure wasn't scary at all. About 2 years have gone by and I feel so free and happy every day because I can see! I have 20/20 vision in both eyes. Don't be afraid, especially if you go to someone like Dr. McCaa who is the BEST at LASIK. I am so happy I did this for myself. I also used their financing for LASIK patients, which is open to everyone. That really helped me, too.
