OMG 3 months after my PRK surgery @diamondvlasik I’m at 20/20 vision! My com­put­er enhanced eyes have been ful­ly opti­mized by the world’s best LASIK sur­geon, Dr. Stet­son, who as the ex-chief oph­thal­mol­o­gist at the U.S. mil­i­tary oper­at­ed on our country’s pilots and astro­nauts. Why would you get LASIK any­where else? The gov­ern­ment trust­ed this man to sur­gi­cal­ly manip­u­late the eyes of their most valu­able experts and would have killed him if he made even the small­est mis­take. So yeah, get your eyes done here.

In addi­tion to the advice I gave about get­ting LASIK in my pre­vi­ous posts, here are some addi­tion­al things I have learned:
1. If you go to Dia­mond Vision, Make sure you sched­ule all fol­low up and pre-op appoint­ments with Dr. Pen­shorn — she’s the most patient and pro­fes­sion­al.
2. Also, sched­ule all your appt w/ Bir­ginia. Every­one else is nice but she will go out of her way to make the sched­ule work for you.
3. When the doc says it’s ok to move on from Preser­v­a­tive free Tears, but Sys­tane Bal­ance — it con­tains lipid oil so it’s extra mois­tur­iz­ing for your eyes!!
4. Don’t freak out by all the online per­son­al accounts of sui­cide and depres­sion due to post-LASIK dry eyes. These are per­son­al accounts and there aren’t enough con­trolled clin­i­cal peer-reviewed tri­als of post-LASIK dry eye effects to attribute causal effects.
5. If you wear con­tact lens­es like me, one rea­son why I want­ed to get LASIK is cuz I was already expe­ri­enc­ing chron­ic dry eyes due to being a long-term con­tact lens­es user.
6. Long-term con­tact lens­es use trau­ma­tizes ocu­lar oil glands but con­tact com­pa­nies don’t want you to know that!
7. Dr. Stet­son is con­duct­ing the first large-scale con­trolled tri­al track­ing pre-op to post-op dry­ness symp­toms. Ask him about it and look it up on his web­site!
8. To pre­vent post-LASIK dry eyes, fol­low Dr. Stet­son ’s Tear Film Opti­miza­tion direc­tions: pre­vent inflam­ma­tion by avoid­ing eye rub­bing, get dai­ly fat­ty omega, take reg breaks, avoid UV, man­age humid­i­ty, and avoid fried food.
9. Pri­or to surgery, change the text size on your phone — this is an expert tip from @baratunde #prk­lasik #tri­ci­ain­lasik #LASIK (at Dia­mond Vision)”
