KAMRA Made Life A Breeze for Brad
November 14, 2017
Radio show host Brad was struggling to see well at work. After the KAMRA inlay, the difference in his vision was immediate. Watch as Brad shares his wonderful ClearSight experience!
Brad: I started wearing glasses, probably, either in high school or right out of high school, for very mild issues. But they progressively got worse as I got older. I didn’t hate wearing glasses, mainly, because I didn’t wear them like I was supposed to wear them.
I had started to lose some vision in some areas, to the point that I really was noticing it. And, because with what I do for a living, there’s a lot of … it’s not just everything’s up close, or everything’s at this distance. There’s a lot of “a little bit here, a little bit there, the clock’s up there.” And I’ve got to be able to look, and keep in my line of sight, all of that stuff. And so, I’d started to lose some of that, and it really was to the point that I was either going to have to start wearing those glasses all the time, or I needed to get something done.
One thing that I really liked, the way that they operate, was when I went to them and said, “I’d like to investigate doing this,” they said, “Come in, and let us check your vision, and let us talk to you and look at what we can do for you. And that’s no charge there’s no … like, you come in, we check it, we tell you whether it’s going to work.” They said, “This is what you need. You need LASIK, you need a KAMRA inlay, because that’s going to give you your distance vision and it’s going to bring your close vision back to where you’re wanting it to be.”
I had really had the expectation that it was going to be a lot harder than it was. Everybody was so informative, and they talked me through every single step. “This is what’s going to happen next, and then we’re going to do this, and then we’re going to do this.” And, all the way through, from beginning to end, what my expectation should be.
And during the surgery, one thing I really like was Dr. Luke. He has this ability to talk you through the process in a way that is “10 more seconds, 12 more seconds,” whatever. So, even if there was something that was slightly discomfortable, which there really wasn’t, I knew what the time frame was, that “this is going to be over in 10 seconds.”
I’m not chasing glasses. I’m not trying to keep up with them. I’m not worried about whether they’re going to break or not. That’s the ultimate difference in what happened before, and the way it is now.
What’s keeping you from doing it? And if what’s keeping you from doing it is apprehension about the process, I would say, “Come in, and let them check your vision, and talk to you about what it is that they can do for you, and what the process would be.”
It wasn’t, at all, what I expected, in terms of any sort of negativity, and once it was done, I was really, immediately, pleased with the difference that it made.
