Dr Gartry was an extremely compassionate and respectful surgeon and whilst I was awed by such commitment to healing his patients, and his respect for our autonomy over our decision to take treatment, I am most joyful about my excellent results which mean my eyes are now better than 20/20. I feel so lucky! Like I have been granted a wish.
However, please note the actual experience of having LASIK is like having a huge machine pressed to your face and your eyelids are taped back, it was really painful in the hours afterwards and it was unnerving that my eyes kept closing. I also found it unnerving having my eyeball exposed like that. However, this discomfort only lasted about 2 days so far as I remember. And the actual time with the machine is really short.
I am really happy I did this and my best wishes to future patients.
