"It's the best thing I've ever done.
It's been wonderful."
As a homemaker and active volunteer in her community church, and children's school, Sharon Root did not need the hassle of glasses or contact lenses. That's why she opted for the surgery over a million individuals have had - refractive surgery - performed right here at home by Hunter Norris, M.D. of the Eye Care Center.
Sharon had the procedure on her right eye two years ago and her left eye last year. "You're always concerned with any kind of surgery and, to be honest, I was a little nervous something might go wrong. During both procedures there was no pain whatsoever. After the procedure in my right eye there was just a little pain, but after my second procedure, there has been no pain in either eye. It's absolutely remarkable."
"I've worn glasses or contacts since I was in the third grade and I was just tired of dealing with them. There were a lot of things I couldn't do because of my glasses-but loved to-like waterskiing, snorkling, and swimming. It's the greatest gift I could have-to be able to do the things I've always wanted to do. In fact, I went snorkeling this past summer and it was wonderful!
"Plus, it's the little things - like just getting out of bed in the morning and being able to read the digital numbers on the clock without glasses. The results have been just amazing to me."
