Francesca Loparco’s Life Changes After Recent Same-Day Consultation and LASIK Procedure at Christenbury Eye Center

New Vision Today™ LASIK Makes Life Simpler for Patients

Charlotte, N.C., May 4, 2016– Francesca Loparco, Co-Founder of Queen City Dream Cars, an exotic car rental business in Charlotte, N.C., changed her life forever with a same-day LASIK procedure at Christenbury Eye Center. The entrepreneur struggled with her computer, riding horses and driving due to poor eyesight. Dr. Jonathan Christenbury performed her surgery the same day as her in-office consultation and eye exam. Francesca’s eyesight was restored to 20/20 in both eyes.

As the busy owner of a new and growing business, Francesca was thrilled about same-day surgery. She was very excited to be in and out in one day, making getting back to work even faster. Her need to see her computer at work and the ability to read street signs made this procedure a necessity. Francesca, also an avid horse jumper, says she was concerned about readjusting to the jump heights and distances. However, she could see so well after her procedure that the transition was simple and provided great improvement.

“I had premature lines around my eyes from squinting all the time,” says Francesca Loparco, patient at Christenbury Eye Center. She says, “They’re [Dr. Christenbury and Staff] all so professional and efficient and yet they seem like family and made me feel so comfortable. And wow; I get the doctor whose name is on the wall. Now I can see perfectly. Why would anyone wear glasses?”

Dr. Christenbury brought same-day consultation and LASIK to the Christenbury Eye Center several years ago, and called it Vision TodayTM. Vision Today is ideal for our busy patients, patients from out of town or patients who simply want the convenience of Vision Today. Patients simply schedule the consultation, leave their contacts out for one week prior and bring a driver to their FREE comprehensive exam. Then, if Dr. Christenbury finds them to be a LASIK candidate, they can receive a same-day LASIK procedure! With a 95% success rate of patients experiencing 20/20 vision, and Vision Today, patients could not be happier.

“People are busy and want to get back to their jobs and families as quickly as possible,” says Dr. Jonathan Christenbury, Medical Director at Christenbury Eye Center. “Changing our internal process was a challenge, but worth the effort. Our staff and I are very proud to offer this much-needed service to our patients.”
