This past April, Florida Eye Specialists helped host The Docs’ Block Party, a patient-appreciation event at their Southside location. While at the event, attendees were encouraged to visit various stations and learn more about the other practices in the business complex. Patients who visited all the stations would be entered in to win Free LASIK from Dr. Chokshi at Florida Eye Specialists.
Cynthia C. came to the Docs’ Block party with her parents and decided to put her name in the hat, even though she had never won a raffle before. Last year, her sister had LASIK surgery done and was seeing much better, so decided if she could have a shot at that same kind of improvement, it would be worth it.
Cynthia is a single mother who works long hours as an accountant, which is a continuous strain on her eyes. She has struggled with her vision since she was in 3rd grade and had a severe near-sightedness with astigmatism.
When the Florida Eye Specialists staff called her to let her know she had won, she couldn’t believe it! After the initial consultation, it became clear that she was indeed a good candidate for LASIK.
Going into the procedure, Cynthia was a nervous and excited. She wasn’t sure what to expect, but she knew good vision wasn’t far away. The entire procedure took less than 20 minutes and had no pain at all – just a little pressure.
Even in the minutes after the LASIK surgery was done, she knew her eyes were different. She could see 100% better. “Everyone was great and it all went well. I can’t thank them enough!” Cynthia said during her first follow-up appointment.
She is now able to see clearly and even drive without glasses. We are very grateful to have been a part of Cynthia’s story. Caring for patients and providing Excellence in Eye Care is what Florida Eye Specialists is all about, and we love moments like this where we get to impact patients’ lives in such a dramatic way.
