My PRK procedure from Diamond Vision literally changed the way I see the world! After wearing contacts for almost my entire life, I never realized how much they affected my daily life until I didn’t need them anymore. No more dust in the contacts that I can’t seem to get rid of, no more irritations and infections from constantly touching my eyes, no more guessing if my prescription should be increased, no more feeling like my eyes are on fire when I accidentally fall asleep with my lenses, no more panic when I realize I’m down to the last contact and have to wait to order more!
There are still days where I wake up and have to do a double take because I am able to perfectly read my clock in the morning. I can honestly say that I see better after my procedure than when I had my contacts – and that’s with zero maintenance! Everything (apart from maybe, chopping onions) has become easier after my surgery and I never hesitate to recommend Diamond Vision PRK to anyone that asks!

- Contact LensesWe ophthalmologists, and especially refractive surgeons, don’t have to go too many days in our clinics without seeing the damage that long term contact lens use can do to the eye. Far too frequently, patients will present with issues related to contact lens use, misuse, and overuse. These problems include but are certainly not limited to contact lens related corneal ulcers (keratitis) which can cause permanent corneal scarring and visual loss, and in some very unfortunate few, even loss of the eye.
