One of our patients, Stephanie Fisher recently posted the testimonial below to her Facebook wall. She gracious let us use it for our blog in hopes to help clear up a common misconception. Many people believe that lens implants are just a follow up procedure for patients who have had cataracts. This is not true. Stephanie, 47, recently had the lens implant procedure and did not suffer from cataracts. LASIK was also ruled out as a viable option to help correct her vision problems. Please take a moment to read Stephanie’s testimonial and follow her journey to clearer vision.

“One down, one to go! I can’t begin to express the tears of joy I experienced when I went to Dr. Updegraff’s office today as he told me I had 20/20 vision in my left eye! I couldn’t finish the eye exam I was crying so hard.

I have suffered terribly with glasses and contact lenses most of my life. As most of my friends know, it was a constant battle with me and my eyes. Stephen A. Updegraff, M.D., FACS, is one of the most experienced LASIK surgeons in the world, also known as the Laser Guy. What he did for me was not LASIK but Clear Lens Exchange (CLE), or clear lens replacement surgery on my left eye.

Tomorrow, I go in for my right eye. I don’t think I will be able to sleep tonight because I am beyond excited!! The difference between each eye is night and day! I can’t believe I have been living like this most of my life.

Thank you Lord for this opportunity and thank you Lord for guiding Dr. Updegraff’s hands as he operates on my right eye tomorrow morning!”

Thank you Stephanie for sharing your story with our readers. We hope you enjoy your new vision.
