My name is David, and Lasik surgery has impacted me in a very positive way. Before the surgery, I had astigmatism, which caused for me to have to wear glasses. Glasses on me, however, were not a pretty sight. I couldn’t find a pair that looked good on me, so I got contacts, expecting for things to be better. They were actually worse than glasses; not because of the look, but because of the irritability it caused for my eyes. I could see better and they were doing what they were supposed to, but contacts, when it came to comfort, aren’t for everyone.
Then, I came across LASIK surgery. I did some research, and found that surgeons use a later to alter the image of the retina, improving site. I wasn’t aware of any places that performed this surgery, since I was from Detroit, and then I found Eye Michigan. This was the first institution in southeastern Michigan that used the LenSx laser, a machine that performs the most precise surgical incisions. This institution has innovated in the most up to date technology for these ophthalmic procedures. I visited their location in Bloomfield Hills, and I spoke with Dr. Grosinger about Lasik Surgery. He basically told me that since I was legible for the surgery after we discussed my past site problems. I chose to stick with this firm due to the staff’s exceptional credentials with Dr. Grosinger being one of the premier eyes surgeon’s of Michigan, Dr. Spigelman being one of Michigan’s leading ophthalmic physicians, and Dr. Grey being an experienced and reputable ophthalmologist.
I scheduled the surgery with Dr. Grey, and it only lasted about a half hour. They basically cleaned my eyes and put numbing drops in them. They put a suction ring on each eye for the suction of my corneas, and then made an insertion in my corneas. The surgery over all wasn’t that painful because Dr. Grey was extra careful when it came to discomfort. The laser was then sent into my eye, and that basically completed the surgery. I experience random blurriness, and then patches were placed on my eyes to allow the cornea flap where the cut was made to heal. I’ve been visiting the doctor regularly for the past couple months, and my site has greatly improved. It’s such a convenience to not worry about the irritation from contacts and looks of my glasses. I was informed that although I could see great a day after the surgery, there are moments of blur that have the possibility of occurring over a span of six months after surgery, which I do. I’m very content with my decision of going to Eye Michigan, where the staff is professional, and the technology is all 21st Century, unlike some ophthalmologists’ firms I have visited throughout Metro Detroit.
I recommend checking this out to anyone who experienced the same problems I did. However you have to be at least 18 years old, it is a fairly expensive surgery that has to be discussed with the firm, you can’t play sports for the duration of the healing process, you can’t take any medication that affects the healing process. Although this is a lot to think about, the surgery is worth the result with some of Michigan’s finest ophthalmologist experts.
