Patient Mike Reed discusses his LASIK results following treatment at our Salt Lake City office.
MIKE REED: The first time I played golf without glasses, I just, you know, kept wondering what I’d forgotten, and did I have all 14 clubs and golf balls. And there was something missing, you know. And it was freedom to some extent. But to another extent, I just felt a little bit disjointed, like there was something there that needed to be, that wasn’t there before.
And I would occasionally find myself reaching for glasses that weren’t there. And I’d go to wash my face, and I’d try to take something off that wasn’t there before I washed my face, and that sort of thing.
But playing golf the first time, I was really amazed at how good my vision was at distance. And that’s what I was primarily corrected for.
And that’s what’s what amazing to me to be able to see so clearly at distance, the details of the trees and the flag. And the out of bound stakes. Whatever you’re looking on, you can see them a lot more clearly. It wasn’t just fuzzy. I didn’t have to be so general with my—with looking at the target. I could be very specific. And so, you know, after the initial shock of it, it got to be kind of fun. And I think it’s still fun to this day to be able to see that clearly, and to be able to trust your vision and to know that, you know, what you see is not, you know, something abnormal or unusual. This is the way that I think maybe a lot of people see if their vision’s right.
