Fort Worth resident Jess Fay relies heavily on having sharp vision in her job as a graphic designer at a marketing firm in Colleyville, Texas. “I was frustrated with my poor vision and didn’t want to hassle with glasses and contacts anymore,” she said. “I’m only 22 and my vision was so bad, I couldn’t see my alarm clock or phone that was only a foot away.”

Jess knew about LASIK vision correction because her mom had it done and said it was one of the best decisions she had ever made. “Obviously for me as a 22 year old, the biggest obstacle in my mind was money,” said Jess. “Since I recently graduated from college and I am just starting in my career, I need to save as much money as possible. And because LASIK is not essential, I felt like it could wait.”

But when Jess looked more closely into the possibility of having LASIK, met with a patient liaison at Kleiman|Evangelista Eye Center, and found out that affordable financing is available, there was no turning back. “I knew at that point that I had to get my poor vision not only fixed, but cured,” she said.

Dr. Kelly Frasier was Jess’s LASIK surgeon. “Dr. Frasier had a calming and comforting presence throughout the entire procedure,” she said. “He reassured me with his confidence by explaining every step to me while he performed the surgery.”

Jess was surprised at how quickly she recovered from the procedure. “Just like that, I had perfect vision within one day! And the fast recovery allowed me to get back to my daily activities with no pain or side effects. Every morning, I am reminded LASIK was definitely a great decision. When I wake up, I don’t have to reach for or find anything. I simply open my eyes and I can see perfectly.”

When asked if having LASIK has helped her in her profession as a graphic artist, Jess could not say enough! “Yes!” she gushed. “In my work, I stare at multiple screens all day. Before LASIK, at the end of the day, my vision was blurry and caused bad headaches. Now, my vision is sharp 24/7 no matter what I look at or the amount of time I look at it.”

Jess is so passionate about the positive results she has experienced since her LASIK procedure that she loves to talk to anyone about it. “For anyone who is on the fence about LASIK like I was, I would tell them that it was the best decision and I would not hesitate to do it again,” she said.
