As a firefighter, it is important for Steve to be able to see in challenging, smoky conditions. A week after his laser eye surgery, Steve can see better than ever before and is back to driving a firetruck for work. He strongly recommends the advanced Wavefront laser procedure.
Interviewer: So, Steve, we did your eye surgery last week, right?
Steve: We did.
Interviewer: And how are you doing this week?
Steve: I'm doing great. It's awesome to be able to see, and you take for granted what you could've been seeing for 10 years, 5 years, however long you've gone without it.
Interviewer: Right. I don't appreciate my work, because I've been perfect all my life, so . . .
Steve: Yeah. It must be nice.
Interviewer: It's fun to make the blind see like you.
Interviewer: So how's work going this week? You're in the Fire Department?
Steve: Work's great. I'm a firefighter, and I was driving this week. And this is less than a week after I've gotten the surgery and I'm able to see. I can see way better than I ever could with my glasses or contacts.
Interviewer: Do you go on fire scenes at all?
Steve: We did go to fire scenes, and I don't get any halos from any of the bright lights, with LEDs. Everything's flashing and I have no . . .
Interviewer: Do you feel safer in smoky environments with your work?
Steve: I do, absolutely. I feel like, for me, it's important to have this, to be able to do my job and protect people to the best of my ability.
Interviewer: Great. And we did a Wavefront procedure, right?
Interviewer: The more advanced laser, and it comes in pretty quick, right?
Steve: Yes, came in within five hours. After that first initial five hours, I was able to see better than I had in years.
Interviewer: And you're 20/20 in a week. That's great. Because with the old lasers, it takes a little bit longer. So any glare problems at night for your first week?
Steve: No glare problems at night. And I would recommend doing the Wavefront to anybody who seems that that might be an option for them.
Interviewer: Right. Wavefront's good to avoid glare. It's the best laser for that. If you have glare coming into it, you should get it done. Well, I'm glad I could change your life.
Steve: Thank you.
Interviewer: Just enjoy your new vision and thanks for choosing us at Columbus Laser Vision.
Steve: Great. Thank you very much.
Interviewer: You're welcome. My pleasure.
