Rachael’s LASIK Story

Before I had my LASIK Surgery at D’Ambrosio Eye Care, I wore contact lenses about 16 hours a day, 7 days a week. My biggest complaint was how dry my eyes would get. I work late nights in a hospital and I’d constantly be rubbing my eyes all night. I also like to be physically active with running, biking, and swimming so glasses were not an option either.

I had enough and decided to schedule a consultation at another facility. The doctors and staff there pressured me into scheduling the surgery and wanted money immediately. I left feeling scared and resigned myself to simply wearing my contacts again. A few months later, a friend posted on Facebook that she had LASIK at D'Ambrosio Eye Care and how happy she was with her outcome. I messaged her immediately and, after asking a few questions about her experience, I scheduled a consultation.

Every single person I came into contact with at D'Ambrosio was friendly and put me right at ease. They walked me through the entire procedure and assured me it would be quick and painless. The day of the surgery I was extremely nervous but the team walked me through every step beforehand. All of the prep and eye drops beforehand lasted longer than the surgery itself. A nurse in the surgery held my hand the entire time and, as silly as it sounds, it made me feel so much better. Upon sitting up after the LASIK, I definitely noticed an improvement in my vision. I went home, slept for 4 hours, and when I woke up, I could see. There are no words to describe those first few days of shock of waking up in the middle of the night and being able to see my alarm clock or not having to worry about dry, blurry vision driving home late at night or not needing to find my glasses anymore first thing in the morning.

I don't need to spend hundreds of dollars on contact lenses anymore. I don't need to bring extra solution and lenses with me everywhere I go just in case of dry eyes. I don't need to worry about whether I should wear contacts or glasses today because it's supposed to rain. Before, I was the last person my family asked to read that sign far away. Now I have the best vision in my family.

Having elective surgery on my eyes sounded terrifying. But I am 100% happy I had LASIK. And so glad I chose D'Ambrosio Eye Care as the place to do it. Olivia was a big factor in my overall fantastic experience with D'Ambrosio. Her patience with me and her explanations made me feel 10x better. She did a terrific job and I just wanted to acknowledge that. From the bottom of my heart comes a sincere thank you!
