As a dancer and choreographer, I’m very active and am constantly on the go. Activities like swimming, dancing or simply wearing stylish sunglasses were such a hassle when I had glasses and contacts to deal with! Not to mention that coming home after a late night and needing to take out my contacts before bed was an obligation which was getting rather annoying.
When dancing on location in different environments, wearing contact lenses became even more of a bother. I remember an incident where I lost one of my contacts while on set shooting a music video in France. Because “the show must go on” at all costs, I had no choice but to continue the shoot with partial vision. Being so far from home, I wasn’t able to get my hands on a replacement lens for a week, which really impacted my trip in a negative way.
The idea of being able to just wake up and carry on with my busy schedule sparked my interest in laser vision correction. For many years I was apprehensive but I had heard too many positive comments from friends and associates, including Shawn Desman, all of whom had great things to say about LASIK MD.
My experience was great! The surgeon and staff were extremely comforting and knowledgeable. They really explained the procedure step by step, answered my questions and put me at ease.
The surgery was quick and painless! There was a little discomfort immediately following the procedure but by the next day, I was already able to continue with most of my usual activities.
Now my life is hassle-free, and it’s easier for me to get up and go! With my professional and personal life being so hectic, I can now be as active as I need and get wherever I want, whenever I want, without any worries.
