It has been 1 year since my LASIK surgery
January 27, 2012

I am 53 years old and I had lasik surgery from Dr. Hale in January 2011. I cannot believe what a miracle was performed!

I had very bad eyes  I believe Dr. Hale said I was in the top 5% of bad eyes. I was very nearsighted and had a major astigmatism.

I wore glasses since the second grade and glasses/contacts for the rest of my life. In my 402s the need for reading glasses began. I switched to monovision soft contacts and had pretty good quality of vision through my 402s. As my near-vision progressively deteriorated through age, my contacts became harder to fit and more uncomfortable. I am on the computer about 9 hours a day and the eye strain was unbearable. I begged for a large monitor at work, but still found I needed to close my eyes several times a day to reduce the eye strain. I started wearing glasses a majority of the time, but with my vision the glasses were so heavy (and they were small) that my ears and nose were very uncomfortable. I could not wait to go to bed at night to give my eyes a rest. I read fewer books because of the eye strain.

I then researched Milwaukee for lasik specialists. I was sold on Dr. Hale because of the number of surgeries he has completed and his years dedicated to the cause. I scheduled a consultation, fully expecting to be rejected because my eyes were out of the range. I was told I was a good candidate mostly because of my thick corneas and that they thought I would have good success. They did say that my range would most likely need retreatment and that I should expect that as one possible outcome.

I scheduled my lasik surgury in January 2011. After the first surgery, my left eye was perfect and my right eye was 20/50 and would need retreatment. They were assured they could get me very close to 20/20 or 20/30. What I couldnt believe was that I could read again! As long as I wanted!

In May, my right eye was retreated with great success! In December 2011, I had my last follow up appointment and my vision is 20/20!

A few side notes:

* The monovision did take some time for adjusting. I felt just a bit dizzy once in a while the first 3 months. That feeling is totally gone now and I have completely adjusted.

* For the first 3 months, I would always reach for my glasses in the morning! Habit I guess, but every morning I would smile at the fact that I did not need them.

* There is nothing like packing for an overnight and not worrying about the contact solution, cases, glasses. There is nothing like going to bed and not having to take your contacts out! Or rushing home from work so you can remove your contacts!

* I read a book about every 2 weeks now and I love it! I am so much more informed because I can spend more time with newspapers, magazines and books! (forget that small newspaper print before lasik)

I will never forget how grateful I am that I can see without help for the first time in 45 years! This is nothing short of a miracle and I thank Dr. Hale and his staff for the wonderful service!

ps  the teddy bear given for the surgery was an awesome touch!
