Subject: Lasik Results
I just wanted to send a note letting you know how pleased I am with the results of my recent Lasik procedure. I have been wearing corrective lens since the 4th grade (almost 50 years ) and really thought I’d be wearing glasses or contacts forever. I can’t begin to tell you how great it feels that I can see when I wake up in the morning without putting in my contacts. It’s a great feeling! I also want to let you know the staff at Erdey Searcy Eye Group took great care of me and I felt very comfortable with their professionalism.
I am very pleased!
MY “IZE” HAVE IT
It is wonderful, now, nothing comes between me and my friends.
The top twelve reasons to have LASIK eye surgery:
12. When I meet people on the street, I have civil-eyes
11. When I put things in sequence, I have alphabet-eyes.
10. When I invest in the stock market, hopefully I have maxim-eyes
9. When I plan presentations for customers, I have system-eyes
8. When I get dressed up, I have formal-eye
7. When I play on the computer, I can push the buttons for minimal-eyes
6. When trying to play a key board instrument, I am perfectly organ-eyesed
5. When I am attracted to a sale, I have magnet-eyes
4. If I see a super star, I can idol-eyes
3. When I had my surgery, I had sterile-eyes
2. Because for the first time in my life I have normal-eyes
And the number ONE reason to have LASIK surgery is:
Because it is great to have designer custom-eyes by Dr Richard Erdey and his staff!
Thank you for giving me a wonderful gift – eyes that really see.
No more glasses. No more contacts. No more hassles.
I wake up in the morning and can seel the clock.
No more groping for misplaced glasses.
At night, my husband doesn’t have to tell me what just happened on TV.
And best of all, I don’t feel imprisoned by glasses.
Next time I’m in Columbus, I will come by and really SEE you!
Dear Dr. Erdey and Staff: Having been a person who wore glasses since age 8, the thought of being able to go without them was very appealing. I used to have to put on my glasses first thing every morning, and I wouldn’t take them off until bedtime. The LASIK procedure has more than met all my expectations! It is wonderful to have 20/20 vision and not even have to consider glasses. The procedure went very smoothly, there were no problems at all, and immediate results. I have nothing but praise for Dr. Erdey. Thank you very much!

I began wearing glasses in second grade because my sister had glasses and I wanted to be like her. Guess what? I got my wish. By the time I was in eighth grade the novelty of wearing glasses had long worn off I was tired of them sliding down my nose, rubbing the tops of my ears, not to mention that my vanity suffered. Since my vision had become worse, I opted to try contact lenses. But the contacts weren’t perfect either. Daily I had to clean them. I couldn’t sleep in them and of course I was still blind as a bat when it came time to take them out (for swimming, water skiing, etc.)
The older I got, the worse my vision became. During my routine eye exam last summer, it was suggested that I might be a candidate for LASIK surgery. I was interested but the expense seemed astronomical compared to just another pair of contacts and their hassle. I was told however that I suffered from contact lens abuse. I wore them too long (17 hours a day) and I needed to break down and purchase a new pair glasses also. More money. I went ahead and bought new lenses. Within several months I tore a lens, then I lost another. ENOUGH!
I had heard advertisements offering both eyes for a minimal amount but I thought I only have one pair of eyes, I want to go for the best doctor not the cheapest price!” After speaking to many people who had the LASIK surgery performed successfully, I called my regular eye doctor who referred me to the Erdey Searcy Eye Group. I set up my free consultation which determined that although my vision was extremely poor, correction could be performed as the other criteria was met. Dr. Erdey was very upfront about my chances for correction. He explained that because of the severe correction required it might be necessary to perform an enhancement (a second surgery.) We proceeded one eye at a time.
The surgeries were extremely successful. There was no pain involved and I was back to work the next day. I did not require the enhancements after all and I can see clearly now without correction. I am very impressed not just with Dr. Erdey and his wonderful talent but also with his whole staff. They are confident, knowledgeable and very customer service oriented.
Daily I am amazed and thrilled that after thirty plus years of hassling with glasses and contacts now I wake up and I can read the alarm clock from across the room. I can see when I swim and water ski. The best part is that the miracle I experienced is available to others as well. The Erdey Searcy Eye Group are the miracle performers. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
