I was pretty nervous about having surgery on my eyes because, well, they’re my eyes! But I felt like I was in good hands at Hoopes Vision! Dr. Hoopes was really friendly and he made me feel comfortable and relaxed. The surgery was fast, simple, and not painful at all.

I had PRK and the recovery was easy; it was just a matter of remembering to use my drops!

Having PRK was one of the best decisions I ever made. Sometimes I just sit back and think, “Wow, I can see everything with MY eyes, not through contacts or glasses.” After getting the surgery, I felt free! I don’t have to worry about not being able to see or losing a contact when I swim.

I am also an MMA fighter, and my first fight since my vision correction surgery was in January. I was so happy to look out at the crowd and actually be able to see all of the friends and family who came to support me. I felt more comfortable than I ever had before during warm-up and walking to the cage because I could see everything that was happening so clearly. I am so grateful I had PRK and got the results I did. It was one less thing I had to worry about in my fight and it made a world of difference – and yes, I won!
