New York Lasik Eye Surgery
Dr. Robbins Patient Profiles
"Dr. Robbins and
the staff of Robbins Laser Site have changed my
life. Before my procedure, I had been wearing
glasses for over twenty years. As an active person,
the inconvenience of glasses had always been a
source of frustration for me. Constant cleaning
and adjustments, and fumbling for them on my night
stand when I woke up. Contact lenses just never
seemed to work well for me. My entire military
experience was an exercise in frustration because
of my dependence on thick, heavy glasses.
Now I wake up every
morning to clear vision. In less then one week
from my procedure I was seeing 20/20 without corrective
The process was
simple and every step was thoroughly explained
to me. The first step was going to the informational seminar Dr. Robbins holds
each month. At this seminar I learned all about
the history of LASIK, how the procedure is performed
and met the staff. At the seminar I was also able
to speak with Sherman Burdette, the local Fox
TV news anchor. Sherman had recently undergone
bilateral LASIK eye surgery performed by Dr. Robbins
and was very enthusiastic about his new vision.
After the seminar,
I scheduled a pre-operative examination to identify
if I was a suitable candidate for the procedure.
During the testing I was checked for glaucoma,
numerous measurements of my eyes were taken included
computerized analysis of the shape; the staff
was very thorough and left no stone unturned.
After the results were carefully reviewed, it
was decided that I was a good candidate for LASIK eye surgery.
Less than 2 weeks
later, the date for my surgery arrived. I will
have to admit, I was a little bit nervous. However
my nerves were quickly calmed by the professionalism
of Dr. Robbins and his staff. They did everything
possible to make me comfortable. The procedure
itself was a breeze; Dr. Robbins explained every
detail. From start to finish it took less then
20 minutes to correct both of my eyes.
My recovery time
was minimal, and the next day I was able to drive
myself to my follow-up appointment. The doctor
examined my eyes and declared my uncorrected vision
to be 20/20 in each eye. My vision seemed to be
clearer than it had been with my glasses and by
noon of the same day I was back at the computer.
Needless to say, this made my boss very happy.
Contrary to my fears, I did not experience any
problems with glare or discomfort.
I now look forward
to a lifetime of clear vision with my family.
I will be swimming, golfing and coaching my son's
little league team and football team without glasses
and seeing better then ever. Thank you Dr. Robbins!"
Update: I am now over 3 months out and can
read the 20/15 line on the eye chart for the first
time in my life! More amazingly, my golf handicap
which had been a steady 12 for the past few years,
miraculously dropped to 7. The source of this
improvement eluded me until my golf buddy reminded
me of my recent eye surgery. I honestly had completely
forgotten about my LASIK eye surgery! After analyzing
my game, what has improved dramatically is my
putting. I attribute this to my increased peripheral
vision. No wonder Tiger Woods is winning all those
Two Year Update:
I can still see perfectly! Over the past couple
of years, I have had a few friends go to Canada
to have Laser Vision Correction, just to save
a few bucks. None of them got the results they
were seeking. When you add up all the drive time
plus the inconveinance of traveling outside the
country, they really didn't save any money. And
I can see better than all of them! I guess you
really do get what you pay for. Thanks again to
Dr. Robbins and the entire staff at Robbins Laser
