My surgery went very well!
All my life I wanted to do laser eye surgery but I was a little scared. Two years ago my friend had an eye correction at the Boothe Eye Care & Laser Center. When she started to see clearly she was very happy. Since then I began thinking about my laser eye surgery. I read many success stories of different kinds of laser surgeries on their websitebut I hesitated because I did not know for how long the surgery will improve my vision. So far my friend has a good vision without any problems.
One evening I called my friend and asked her to go with me to the center. Next morning she called her counselor at the center and made an appointment with Dr. Boothe. When we arrived to Boothe’s Center I was a little excited. My friend took me to Boothe’s room.
I told Dr. Boothe that I wore glasses all of my life and the lately used contact lenses but each year I must switch my contact lenses because my sight changes and it cost a lot overall, with cleaning supplies etc. Dr. Boothe listened to me with attentive attitude and assured me that I can correct my vision without any complications. He asked me to go with his assistant to other rooms where they had examination devices to determine the exact condition of my eyes. It was absolutely painless and quick. His nurse was with me all the time and took me from one exam room to the other. In every room I met very pleasant nurses. They explained what I need to do and which equipment will be used. When the results were ready I waited for Dr. Boothe to was able to speak to me again. He very thoroughly learned my eye exam results and then looked at me and said that I was suitable for IntraLasik surgery. He explained the whole process which will be followed in my surgical procedure. He told me about the advantages of laser eye correction and its disadvantages. I asked how much it will cost and his assistant offered a price and financing plan that suited my expectations. I answered that I will consider and if I agree I will make a call to center. Dr. Boothe said that he will be glad to see me again.
One week later I called the center and the nurse appointed a day for IntraLastik vision correction surgery. My friend told me in detail about the procedure and reassured me that I could not find such a professional surgeon anywhere else in the U.S. When I came to the center I exactly knew what to expect.
Before surgery the nurse gave me papers which I had to sign. I waited about half an hour when the nurse came back and took me to a special room where I was prepared for surgery. I wore the sterile clothing and took a tranquilizing pill. When I was right the nurse took me to operating room. The nurse had me lay down on the operating table so she can put eye drops in my eyes. After about 3 minutes,Dr. Boothe began to operate my right eye. The laser surgery was absolutely painless. It only felt uncomfortable when Dr. Boothe used the eye dilator. The surgery on my right eye only took three minutes. When he worked on my left eye, it was so quick that I did not feel anything. After the surgery, I feel a little dizzy. The nurses took me to the postoperative room and helped me remove the clothing and asked me to rest before Dr. Boothe exams my eyes. I laid down and fell asleep for a couple of hours until the nurse woke me up. To exam my eyes, Dr. Boothe asked me to read the letters on the letter board. I was able to read 10 lines and it was great! The nurse gave me eye drops and a prescription and I was allowed to back home.
Before the surgery, I was afraid that there will be postoperative complications, but when I returned home I felt well! My friend visited me and helped me put eye drops in my eyes.
During the next day, I went back to Dr. Boothe so he can exam and test my eyes again. I was delighted when Dr. Boothe said I have 20/20 vision. The only regret I have is that I waited so long to get this done!
