Allyse came to Waite Vision hoping to free herself from her glasses and contacts in time for her to work in the Philippines. Dr. Waite and his team were able to give her that visual freedom. Here is what she has to say about her experience.
Allyse: I am about to go to the Philippines for a year and a half as a missionary for my church. In the Philippines, we are instructed not to use any of their water any sort of way. So, when I realized that I could qualify for LASIK, I immediately knew that that was the right decision for me because I don’t have to worry about contacts and contracting the virus, and I don’t have to worry about glasses in case I lose them, and I don’t know when I would be able to see again.
And Dr. Waite is incredible and his technicians, they’re all incredible. They’re very professional, they’re very classy, very kind. Through the whole surgery, they made sure that I was comfortable. And what they were doing, I was okay with, talking me through it, make sure that I was calm and knew that what was going on. And they were just incredible and made sure that my experience getting Lasik surgery was the best that it could be.
Dr. Waite: Actually looks perfect. I love it. Sit back. Okay. Good job.
Allyse: Thank you.
Dr. Waite: You can just dab your eyes there. I’m gonna put some extra drops in here for you.
Allyse: It was beyond what I could have imagined. It’s kind of a miraculous experience having terrible vision before and waking up with 20/20 vision and it was eye-opening, breathtaking. I don’t know really how to explain it, but it was amazing.
