Ricahrd Ball 1. What convinced you to go through the Lasik/Lasek surgery? And what made you to choose Dream Eye Clinic?
Contacts irritated my eyes so I stopped wearing them for about two years. Then I became very tired of wearing glasses. I was planning to get a new pair of glasses but I just suddenly decided I didn’t want to. I thought about going back to contacts but that would soon get tired as well. So, I began looking into laser eye surgery.
I looked at a few sites but I was most impressed by your site. It was sleek, well organized, and easy to navigate. But most of all, I was sold when it said Kim Tae Hee had surgery with Dream Eye Clinic (is it true?).
2. Tell us about what has changed since you had your Lasik / Lasek surgery. What are the major changes comparing your life before and after the surgery?
I don’t have glasses! I don’t have contacts! I can buy any pair of sunglasses and still see. Swimming, sports, and even something like lying on the couch watching a movie is better without a pair of glass digging into your head or ears.
I also don’t have to look for my misplaced glasses anymore!
3. Were there any inconveniences during the recovery process? And tell us about how satisfied you are with your newly improved vision.
I had no problems with recovery. My eyes were a little dry for a few days but that was it.
I am very satisfied with my vision. One day I was at COEX mall with a few friends who do not wear glasses or lenses. We were looking for some place. I can’t remember what it was now, but, anyway, I could see the small writing on the sign when we were quite far, and my friends couldn’t read that. I call it “super vision.”
4. What were the most valuable and rememberable experiences at Dream Eye Clinic?
The staff was very friendly and there were no communication problems at all. I felt comfortable at all times and I was kept well informed about the different tests, etc. that were being done to my eyes. During the surgery the doctor and nurses made me feel very relaxed.
When the surgery was finished, they played some music in the operating room and it was very funny. I think it was the “Congratulations” song.
After the surgery, the patient has to go to a small room with a bed and keep their eyes closed for 30-40 minutes. During this time, they allowed my friend to come in the room and keep me company.
So, overall, it was a very pleasant experience!
5. Finally, what else do you want to tell us (our medical staffs, doctors, and nurses)? (Anything is OK including some of your wishes that may inform us to improve ourselves.)
I just want to say that the entire experience (pre-tests, surgery, check-ups) were all very professional. I like how it’s not necessary to make an appointment for the check-ups so you can just walk in and shortly be taken care of.
