I was a -7.0, -5.75 and not tolerating contacts anymore (after 25 years) and glasses made me feel like I was in a fog.I am now 6 weeks post Lasik surgery and still recovering. I researched the best surgeon to go to in the area and Dr. Updegraff is the one. I read his entire website and scheduled the consult (~3 hours long). I have blue eyes and my eyes stayed dilated for ~48 hours. I was a little surprised I did not meet Dr.Updegraff until right before my surgery and that was the only time I saw him. The surgery itself was quick and fine. I expected the discomfort 24-48 hours post, but I also did not have "perfect" vision immediately.Week 1- I had a light sensitivity to the point I did not go outside for 3-4 days and wore sun glasses inside. I could make out the letters on the eye test but it was very hazy. I work in a hospital (bright lights and computers) which I was unable to fully function at.Week 2- Still hazy, uncomfortable looking at computers, tv, or reading for more than a few min. I had to go on FMLA, which was totally unexpected since "most people go back to normal activity in 48 hours".Week 3- Dr. Behn put me on some steroid drops for inflammation. He said that the light reflecting off the cornea with this inflammation was causing the haziness. After 2 weeks post-op he said it was ok to get a little more aggressive with the drops. I was also on an NSAID drop. I was able to function better half-way through.Week 4- Still needing frequent computer breaks. Tolerating being outside with sun glasses.Week 5-6: I notice slight changes week to week of improvement. Most of the time I don't have an issue, just tiny font and things too far away are still tough to read.I will say Dr. Behn and the Updegraff staff have been amazing. I am just one of the people who has taken longer to heal, but I can finally "see" the results. I made appointments with him every 4 days at the beginning. Dr. Behn explains everything in detail and let me ask all my questions. I was nervous it didn't work for a while. He assured me there was nothing I did wrong, it was not that the surgery went wrong, I was just a slow healer and there was absolutely no way we could have predicted this.If I could do it again, I would have taken a week off from work to heal. If you end up not needing the time then awesome. I feel like there are a lot of stories out there where people saw perfect the next day and those who it totally didn't work for and they need glasses. I am somewhere in the middle.

I had LASIK yesterday and am thrilled with Dr. Updegraff's team and my results. From the initial consultation to post-operative visit, I am beyond impressed with this practice's level of organization, patience, and friendliness. They are so thorough, at every point I was asked if I had any questions, leaving no mystery about the procedure. I never felt rushed or pressured. As someone who struggles with anxiety I was nervous leading up to the surgery, but once I arrived I was cared for at every turn. I was able to relax in the pre-operative room where I was given some medicine, could listen to music and chill in a recliner. When it was time for surgery Dr. Updegraff explained every step of the procedure while an assistant held my hands. My partner was able to watch the surgery in a private suite. I wasn't nervous at all (the Valium helped) and found the LASIK procedure to be entirely pain-free and fast. I experienced only slight discomfort afterwards, but the pain was completely gone when I woke up from a nap later that day, at which point I woke up with perfect vision. Incredible. I'm almost in tears writing this review because I'm so grateful to see clearly. Thank you, Dr. Updegraff and team. I will recommend you to friends and family.
