It’s been 3 months since I got Lasik eye surgery done by Dr. Melki and I am so pleased with the results.
From the first consultation (which they scheduled for me after 5pm which was super convenient) to the actual procedure itself, I couldn’t have a more positive experience. Dr. Melki is super chill and gives you his honest opinion about your chances for achieving positive results with Lasik. I felt very comfortable with his suggestions and he made me feel good about my decision.
I had to wear my glasses for two weeks prior to the procedure, which was a little hard to get used to, but nothing compared to never having to wear them again! I arrived extremely nervous to the office on a Friday afternoon and waited for my turn to be lasered. When I got into the chair I was still extremely nervous, even after the pre-procedure Valium, but everything still went smoothly. During the entire process, I never felt any pain, but it was still pretty awkward.
The procedure itself takes about 10 minutes, you leave wearing plastic eyeball shields, sleep for 4 hours, and Voila! You can see! It is absolutely amazing to wake up after the procedure and be able to see. Never in my life do I remember being about to do that. One of the best things about it was the recovery time. I took 1/2 day off from work that Friday, and was back in the office Monday morning, with barely any sign I had gotten it done! My eyes were a little bloodshot for the next few weeks, but it was nothing extremely noticable.
Although the procedure it pretty pricey, I would do it again in a second. I highly recommend Lasik and Dr. Melki if you’re thinking about getting laser vision correction.
