It is no secret that I have loved not having to wear glasses or contacts since I had lasik eye surgery three years ago. As a triathlete I found before the surgery I was extra anxious and worried that I would lose my contacts in the water and not be able to see out in the middle of the lake, but with Lasik I don’t have to worry about that anymore. Lasik has taken all of the worry out of open water swimming for me. Now, I feel like I never had glasses. I get up and go, not need to stop and put in my contacts. I see 20/15 in both eyes and have not had any problems what so ever. I have also noticed that my seasonal allergies are much better. My eyes don’t get irritated and itch during allergy season like they used when I had contacts (I think all that junk sticks to the lens). Now I don’t have contacts to dry out when I ride my bike as well. It is truly great not to have to feel that kind of discomfort.
When they called and asked if I would be in a commercial for them, I immediately said “YES”. I have loved having Lasik and wanted to share it with the world. I would suggest it to anyone especially a triathlete or runner. Check it out.
If you are looking for a place to have lasik done, I highly recommend Utah Eye Centers. They have two locations (Ogden & Bountiful). Call and ask for Kelli Haslam at 801-677-1122 to schedule an appointment to see if you are a good candidate. Tell them Coach Lora Erickson “Blonde Runner” sent you in and you can get $600 off ($300 per eye) and they will take care of you. I am see 20/15! Lasik is worth it!
