Christen's Story

Christen M. started her new chapter on October 16, 2012.

“I think that the reputation of Jeff and his team was the main reason I considered having it done, the trust factor, I love the idea that I can just get out of bed and see the world.”

I have been wearing glasses since I was a teenager, around age 15 and then in the last 4 years I needed readers. I tried to wear contact lenses but I always struggled with my astigmatism while wearing contacts lenses, my vision just was not as consistent as it should have been, I just could not see properly. Now that I am older and I need readers wearing contact lenses do not work when I need to read. I did not have the crisp vision I wanted and I still needed my readers over my contact lenses to read. Having to depend on both contact lenses and readers really was the deciding factor for me to have KAMRA Vision™. I am in a related industry, and know a lot of optometrists. I had no hesitation in moving forward because of Dr. Machat and his reputation. I was anxious to have the procedure of course, but excited to improve my life. I was not as nervous as I should have been because I simply knew I was in good hands. Jeff made me feel completely at ease.

I had the LASIK procedure to treat my astigmatism with the KAMRA Vision inlay for my reading, and now I am free to do whatever I need or want to do. I don’t have to scramble for my half eyes every time I want to read something or hand the menu over to someone else to read it for me. I remember that when I was getting up off the laser bed, I could actually see the clock on the wall. I talk about my procedure incessantly, and recommend it to my friends and family. I would tell anyone not to hesitate, have it done, and definitely have it done by Jeff and Sondra. If I had to make the decision all over again, I would have it done for sure, without hesitation.
