Ive been using glasses for years starting in high school and then contacts within the last few years. The glasses were fine, but glasses dont necessarily help with ones peripheral vision. Contacts were fine as well, but those arent the cheapest things around and a hassle to put on and take off then clean them. Not to mention that I also had to keep track of how many times Ive worn them before throwing them out or risk any health complications. That and having to ensure that I was never in an area where dirt, sand, loose debris, etc. could get in my eyes. The Lasik operation itself was seemless. Dr. Updegraff and his staff gave me clear guidance and kept me informed of every step that was occurring. After the operation, they gave me everything I needed for post-op care and clear instructions for those post-op care items. Very professional staff and excellent service.
