What made you finally take the plunge and get LASIK?
Shaina: I had been thinking about doing it for at least 10 years. In the months leading up to my decision to finally have LASIK surgery, I talked to lots of people that had LASIK. I received positive feedback from them and just decided I was tired of my glasses and needed a change. Talking to others helped me overcome my fear of problems that could occur from the surgery.
What was your life like before LASIK?
Shaina: I wasted time in the morning looking for where I left my glasses. I was unhappy with wearing glasses to social events - contacts were uncomfortable for me. I did not like the look of my glasses and the cost of prescription sunglasses.
What held you back from getting LASIK?
Shaina: I was scared of complications from surgery, like getting dry eyes, my vision not being altered enough, and having life- long problems from surgery.
How has LASIK changed your life?
Shaina: I feel FREE! I can just get up and go! I don't have to look for my glasses. I don't have to worry about them fogging up or getting wet during outdoor activities. I don’t have any more dents on the bridge of my nose. I don't have to think about wearing contacts to social events and how uncomfortable they will be.
Now having LASIK, are you more likely to pursue different activities?
Shaina: Not really, but Lasik makes all of the activities I do sooo much better. I don't have to worry about losing my glasses when I go swimming, to the beach, kayaking, paddle boarding, etc. I don't have to worry about my glasses falling off and getting broken.
What would you tell someone who is considering LASIK?
Shaina: Talk to others that have done it. Carefully follow all the pre and post op instructions....don't get lazy with the drops. Be ready to enjoy life free of glasses and contacts. Months after the procedure you won't be able to remember what life was like with glasses and will wish you had done it sooner.
Why did you decide to have Dr. Maria Scott do your surgery?
Shaina: I selected Dr. Maria Scott based on her experience and reputation. As I researched a surgeon for LASIK, I found that Dr. Scott has received many awards and accolades from colleagues and patients. I also happened to run into many of Dr. Scott’s patients around Annapolis and they spoke very highly of her, the LASIK process, and her incredible results.
