“I was a contact lens wearer and definitely wore them longer than I should and never cleaned them.  I came to The Eye Clinic of Texas initially because I had something in my eye that was becoming increasingly painful.  I thought it was because I had a piece of grass or dirt in my eye.  Dr. Van told me I had developed a pretty significant corneal abrasion from overuse and abuse of my contacts.  For the next week or so I had to use eye drops several times a day and could not wear my contacts which forced me to wear my 10 year old glasses which were broke and out of style.  I followed up with Dr. Van and my abrasion was healing well.  Then Dr. Van suggested I consider LASIK, especially since I abuse the wearing of my contacts.  I had never thought about LASIK until Dr. Van mentioned it. It made sense to me, no more contacts, no more corneal abrasions or contact lens expenses or glasses expenses.  The bad part was that she made me wait 2 months before having LASIK to ensure my abrasion was fully healed, during which I had to wear those ugly glasses.  Even though I had the pain of the corneal abrasion, I am glad I came to The Eye Clinic of Texas and that Dr. Van recommended LASIK for me.  I have never seen so clearly in my life! “- Robert L.
