I had been wearing glasses since the age of five and I got my first pair of contact lenses my freshman year in high school. At the age of thirty one, I decided that I no longer wanted to deal with irratated red eyes due to my hard lenses and I did not want to sport my glasses. They were so thick that if you put them on you could see into the future! The doctors at Berkeley were so caring and professional every step of the way. From my first consultation, to my eye exam, to my Lasik procedure, to my follow-ups, the entire staff was extremely knowledgeable and thorough. I use to be -9 in both eyes (almost blind) and I am now seeing 20/20! The procedure is pretty quick and painless and the doctors at Berkeley know exactly what they are doing. If you decide that its time to get Lasik, do like I did and go with the best. Don't trust your eyes to just anyone, at Berkeley your in good hands.
