iLASIK: “Now I can put my best foot forward without my eyes holding me back.”
Posted by: South Georgia / North Florida Eye Partners in News
Would getting rid of contacts or glasses for good change your life? For McClain Talley, iLASIK surgery did just that – no more contacts, and a much better quality of life. South Georgia/North Florida Eye Partners offers the latest in iLASIK technology, and our physicians are second to none.
McClain is a recent graduate of UGA and just starting her real estate career. Before iLASIK, “I never felt comfortable in my contacts,” she says. “My eyes were constantly irritated and it caused me to feel tired.”
After iLASIK surgery performed by Dr. Scott Petermann, McClain (whose recovery time was less than one day) – could see clearly without the use of her contact lenses. “I could not be happier. It’s incredible. Now I can put my best foot forward without my eyes holding me back.” Watch her video below to see McClain’s story.
For people who have refractive errors, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism, iLASIK surgery could be the solution. The latest in laservision correction technology, iLASIK (laster-assisted in situ keratomileusis), uses a laser to cut the corneal flap instead of a traditional blade.
Dr. Scott Petermann and Dr. Wes Ross with South Georgia Eye Partners perform iLASIK surgery in our Valdosta location (at our new state-of-the-art surgery center). Consultations and post-operative care is available in all of our locations: Tifton, Valdosta, Douglas, Moultrie and Madison, FL.
We are happy to answer any questions you might have in order to find out if you are a good candidate for the procedure. For patients who aren’t candidates for iLASIK, we offer PRK. Call us to make an appointment – you could be on your way to better eyesight in no time – just like McClain!
