Today I went for my free LASIK screening and was surprised at the VIP attention I received. I met the staff of Sugarland Eye & Laser Center, the laser vision coordinator, and even the surgeon himself! Dr. Khokhar made sure I understood what LASIK was and why I was a good candidate. He also let me know what to realistically expect from LASIK. I could tell that Dr. Khokhar really cared that I was comfortable about the whole thing. He really got to know me! Before I left, I knew I would wanted the level of unsurpassed technology and personalized service that only Sugarland Eye & Laser Center can provide.

Preoperative Appointment
After visiting the laser center, I went to see Dr. Khokhar for my preoperative appointment. The staff prepared me for the day of the surgery and let me know everything to expect. Dr. Khokhar answered all of my remaining questions. The appointment was long. The surgeon told me that my eyes were checked by many different technologies and by many different methods to ensure that I have any exceptional result. It really added another level of comfort for me to see this attention to detail.

Surgery Day
Today I had my LASIK. I can’t believe how fast and easy it was! Dr. Khokhar has me take some medications to keep me “relaxed.” In the tranquility room, I relaxed on a recliner and almost fell asleep! In the laser suite, Dr. Khokhar let me know everything he was doing and kept telling me how wonderful everything was going. The laser must have last about 20 seconds. I was out of there in 10 minutes and never felt a thing. A took a nap when I got home and when I woke up . . . WOW! It wasn’t perfect but I can see things are starting to clear up really fast.

The Day After
I woke up today and reached for my eyeglasses. But then I realized I did not need them anymore! I could see the alarm clock, the tree outside my window, and my whole family clearly without any glasses or contacts. I got ready just looking at all the details that I could now see. I hoped into the car to drive to see Dr. Khokhar for my postop appointment. No glasses! Dr. Khokhar said I was seeing 20/20 in less than 24 hours! I should have had LASIK a long time a go. I can’t believe I waited this long.
