“Mom, you’re going to wish you had done this 10 years ago” is what Sioux Falls resident LeAnne Cunningham heard from her son about getting LASIK surgery to eliminate her dependency on glasses and contacts.
LeAnne made the wonderful decision to get LASIK from Dr. Alison Tendler on June 11, 2014. Her brother had LASIK surgery about 7 years ago here at Vance Thompson Vision. She had to switch from contacts to glasses, but her glasses would fog up and become wet when it rained and she would lose her peripheral vision. Her husband finally said that she should go to Vance Thompson Vision for a free LASIK consultation to check out if she was a candidate for LASIK surgery.
LeAnne felt very informed during her surgery. “Everyone was so nice and everything was explained before and during the surgery. I was at the building at 8:00AM, had my procedure at 9:00AM, was home by 9:45AM, and had great vision by noon.”
I spoke with LeAnne the day after her surgery and she was very impressed with her increasingly improved vision. “I woke up and could see this morning. I had the procedure yesterday and so far so good.” When I asked LeAnne about comparing life before and after the surgery, she said, “I can see without my contacts popping out and I can see in the shower with no fog.”
“I've thought about LASIK for years and this was a great 60th birthday present to myself,” LeAnne said with a big smile.
