Omaha In The Know – What It’s Like to Get LASIK

by Lance Kugler, MD

Curious about getting LASIK? The two questions everyone has about LASIK: “does it hurt?” And “what is it like?”.

Blogger Erin Fairchild, from Her Heartland Soul, knew she wanted LASIK and that coming in for a consultation was the first step. During her consultation, she was able to ask our staff, doctors, and anyone she knew who had LASIK all of her questions. After her consultation, Erin was ready to take the next step and schedule her procedure. In her LASIK blog, she reveals the LASIK facts and how it was the easiest thing she’s ever done. Like many people, LASIK fears of the unknown kept her on her toes and questions about the procedure were plentiful (which is absolutely normal!). Erin has now been glasses and contacts free for a year and she is loving every minute of it. 

I had to take a picture of my eyeballs I was in so much shock. I couldn’t believe that less than 24 hours earlier they were being operated on and now I had such clear vision. I couldn’t believe that less than 24 hours earlier they were being operated on and now I had such clear vision.
