As an avid rock-climber and outdoorsman, wearing glasses simply wasn’t practical for my active lifestyle. Over the years, I unsuccessfully tried many types of contact lenses. However, my astigmatism and dry eyes made them uncomfortable to wear. Imagine losing your glasses while hanging 50ft in the air on the side of a rock formation. I can tell you it’s not a great situation to be in!
I sought the expertise of Dr. De Rojas to evaluate my vision correction options. Based on my vision, hobbies and lifestyle, he recommended photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), a type of refractive surgery that offers results comparable to the more commonly known LASIK procedure.
Dr. De Rojas put me at ease and thoroughly described the PRK procedure and the predicted visual outcome. A good doctor must have the right balance of empathy, skill and honestly. Dr. De Rojas delivered the facts about PRK to set my expectations from the beginning, but explained them in way that didn’t make me uncomfortable with the procedure.
Dr. De Rojas was attentive and professional. He explained every step of the process, before, during and after surgery. Any type of surgery is nerve-wracking, but eye surgery can be especially worrisome. Dr. De Rojas was able to put me at ease and fully educate me about my options to make the right decision, which I most definitely did. I was never promised perfect vision, but today I’m pleased to say I have 20/15 vision in both eyes! My surgery was extremely successful and I received optimal results. I couldn’t have asked for a better outcome or a better surgeon to perform the procedure. Dr. De Rojas has my complete confidence and highest recommendation.
