Meet Rick Nabers, Our Featured Patient Of The Week...
Rick has been a wonderful patient and friend here at our office for over 20 years. In spite of his heavy astigmatism and the need for bifocals, Rick has enjoyed contact lens wear at its very best with our state of the art lens programs.
As a successful businessman for many years here in Southern California, Rick has been a part of numerous auto dealerships such as Nabers Cadillac and Weseloh Honda. To all of us here at the Lyon Contact Lens Center, we just call him "Rick."
Just a funny story about what brought Rick back to Lyon Contact Lens Center, as he had taken a couple of years off from contacts and had been wearing glasses full time. Earlier this week, Rick called our office after he dropped his bifocals and stepped on them causing them to get completely scratched and they became unwearable. He asked Gaby, "Does Bill have time to see me today? I think I want to go back to contacts again!"
His reasoning for the switch was as follows:
- 1. He liked and missed the freedom of contact lenses over eyeglasses.
- 2. He's often racing vintage motorcycles and knows contact lenses will give him much better vision in critical situations over eyeglasses.
- 3. He had also heard that Bill Lyon was introducing new generation lenses for people such as himself with dry and sensitive eyes with complex prescriptions.
Rick came in and saw Bill Lyon for his contact lenses and walked out 30 minutes later seeing perfect 20/20 vision with his new hi-definition soft astigmatic lenses!!!
Besides his many gifts and talents, we also noticed that Rick has a very impressive photographic memory! Rick shared that he can vividly recall Bill Lyon as a young intern fitting him into contact lenses. That was in Los Angeles over 40 years ago.... what a memory!
Thank you Rick, for the many years you have blessed us as a patient and friend. Here at the Lyon Contact Lens Center, and with God's help, we could never do the things we do without your love and support!
