My only regret is not doing this sooner. The whole experience was very positive. Everyone did a great job of explaining the process and put my mind at ease. On the day of the surgery, I knew what to expect and Dr. Loden and his staff did a good job of talking me through the whole experience. I was a little anxious because I read so many different things online about LASIC, but by the time I was sitting in the prep area I was so relaxed that I almost fell asleep. The actual surgery went by pretty quickly. Dr. Loden explained everything that he was doing and there was only a small amount of discomfort. Everything went really well and my recovery has been pretty easy so far. Dr. Loden even called me the evening after my surgery to make sure that everything was going well and to answer any questions about the recovery process. At my follow up appointment the next morning, I already had 20/20 vision and it will only improve as I continue to recover!
