Key-Whitman changed my life!
On March 29th, 2010 I had LASIK eye surgery, and it's true, Dr. Whitman changes lives, and with the help of his competent staff there at Key-Whitman Eye Center he changed my life too!
As a professional Air Traffic Controller with 28 years of experience working in the Marine Corps, and now as a civilian Air Traffic Control Specialist with the Department of Defense for the last 4 years after having retired from the military, having LASIK was not a decision I made lightly. Instead it was one that I researched and debated on since the mid 1990's when everyone in my family was having it done.
However, at the time, I was either out of the area, living and working overseas or deployed in support of combat ops abroad. Another factor was the fact, that as an Air Traffic Controller my vision was my job, and while it was corrected 20/20 it still allowed me to do my job, and I was very hesitant about risking further complications or loss of 20/20 vision.
After having the surgery last week, the only thing I keep going over in my mind is why I waited so long to have this wonderful procedure done. After 36 years of wearing glasses and/or contacts, I am now free of any and all corrective lenses.
If anyone reading this is wondering whether or not corrective eye surgery is for them, I strongly encourage you to contact the wonderful professionals at Key-Whitman and see what they can do for you.
Finally, with all the various doctors and eye centers out there doing corrective eye surgery, I strongly encourage everyone to do their research on not just the procedures, but on the doctors, staff, and eye center you are considering. I know I did! The biggest factor for me, was the fact that over the last 16 years 9 of my family members and in-laws have had eye surgery performed by the Key-Whitman Eye Center, and each one of them have referred at least 1 other to Key-Whitman for their life changing procedures, and it was assuring to know that every one of them have been happy with their procedures and had nothing but good things to say about everyone there at Key-Whitman. It only matched up to all the other testimonials I had been reading and hearing about from local celebrities there in the DFW area.
If you live in the DFW area there is no reason to go to anyone else, and in my case, I could have had corrective eye surgery anywhere, but instead I drove in from Melbourne, Florida just to have Key-Whitman Eye Center perform my procedure, and 4 days later I drove myself back amazed at all I was seeing as if for the first time!
Thanks again to everyone there at Key-Whitman, you are all amazing!
