Meet our featured patient of the week, Maria Limon.... former Lasik patient and a big fan of The Lyon Contact Lens Center....
Maria first came to our office 4 years ago after already undergoing 4 separate Lasik surgeries. Before these surgeries she was easily correctable to 20/20 in both eyes with conventional eyeglasses. By the time she underwent her final Lasik procedure, her best possible correction was 20/25 in her better right eye.
Unfortunately the final surgery to her left eye which was only to be an "enhancement" to correct her vision to an acceptable 20/25 did not go as planned. Instead Maria ended up with so much scarring after the "enhancement" that she was reduced to 20/200...which is considered to be legally blind: someone who cannot even pass the DMV test here in California without special approval by an Ophthalmologist.
After numerous failed contact lens attempts, Maria came to Bill Lyon to see if his recently developed "Dream Lens" he had been fitting post Lasik patients into could work for her. After 4 visits and 3 different fittings...SUCCESS!!! A perfect 20/20 in her right eye, and a beautiful 20/25 in her left eye. The "Dream Lens" fits over her corneal scarring and allows vision clear enough that Maria can even fly an airplane...assuming she first takes lessons!
Thank You Maria for your loyalty to what we do for our patients every day, balanced by your trust and confidence in Bill Lyon's 40 years of experience and expertise in the eye care field....A field where he specializes on high risk individuals. Maria, may you and your eyes continue to be a marvelous success story for many more happy and healthy years to come!
