It has been [over a] month since I received the Visian ICL surgery, and I can not stop raving about the experience and how well I can see without assistance from contacts or glasses. I have worn glasses/contacts for 23 years and the last month has been such a blessing to have freedom from them. I am amazed at just how much time I save every morning since I do not have to fumble with putting my contacts in. Being a Stay-At-Home mom of two small children, time is definitely of the essence.
I would highly recommend this procedure to anyone who is interested in improving their vision and is not a candidate for iLASIK. It was absolutely painless for me. Also, I would not have even realized I had the surgery, had I not worn the eye shields and been able to see immediately (within two hours at 20/25 in each eye). I was so excited that while my husband was driving us home, I couldn’t even rest because I wanted to read every road sign and every car tag along the way. Wow!! I was just beside myself with joy and enthusiasm.
I can not thank you enough for improving my quality of life!

On February 14, 2006, I gave myself the best “Valentine’s Day” gift ever! I had Visian Lenses implanted to improve my eyesight without glasses or contacts. I am thirty-five years old and have been wearing glasses and contacts since I was eight. I was so tired of buying disposable contact lenses, contact solutions, new glasses and was just plain tired of not being able to see without the aid of my glasses or contacts.
After the initial consultation, I was a little apprehensive about having Visian Lenses rather than the iLASIK procedure. Fortunately, you reassured me that this was the way to go because of my level of nearsightedness. I was also more comfortable with how you explained that the lens procedure was a less evasive procedure compared to the iLASIK because of the very small incision that had to be made. This meant less cutting involved, which was okay with me.
I am completely thrilled with my results and have not regretted my decision to go with the Visian Lens. Two hours after the surgery, I could see well enough to drive and in one week I had 20/20 vision. Each day my vision is becoming clearer as well. I cannot wait to find out what my vision might be after one month.
As a working wife and mother of two, this procedure has helped simplify my life. No more ordering and picking up contacts or solutions! I teach third grade in a public school and as soon as I returned after surgery, one student exclaimed, “You sure look better without those glasses!” Not only do I look better and feel better, but I see better too!
Thank you so much, Dr. Christenbury, for performing this life-changing procedure. There are no words to describe how wonderful it is to wake up and see the alarm clock and not have to scramble around to find my glasses before I get out of bed.
You and your staff were extremely professional and kind. I always felt I was in good hands and well taken care of during the surgery and during follow-up visits. I am telling everyone how impressed I was with your facility and your expertise as well.
Thanks again for this amazing gift!

I wanted to take a minute to thank you.
After my Visian Eye Surgery my vision is near 20/20. I cannot believe how nice it is to wake up and see. Or go swimming and be able to open your eyes. It’s been a great experience, and I would recommend your Eye Care Center, and the surgery to anyone with poor vision, who may not be a good candidate for Lasik, like myself.
It’s a good feeling to know that if there was ever a problem, this procedure can be reversed.
Just in case.
