What is life like before LASIK?

Dr. Matthew Russell explains why people feel glasses and contact lenses are holding them back

A significant number of people who come to see us for LASIK really feel that their glasses or contact lenses, particularly glasses, are holding them back in some way.

They feel self conscious when socializing. They feel self conscious when looking for a partner.

They don’t feel that they are really being portrayed as they really are and their self image doesn’t match up to who they feel they are.

Also at the other extreme, people feel that they look older than what they really are or when they start to have to go into glasses in their forties and fifties.

People, therefore, are looking for a way to get back to who they are, to be seen as who they really are and to really liberate themselves and be able to engage in their life more fully by going through with laser vision correction.
