"Dr. Edmonds performed the upgraded cataract surgery (Restor) and follow up (LASIK) surgery on my left eye. I am an avid sportsman and enjoy competition coon hunting and showing as well. I hunt and show American black and tan coonhounds and have earned many champion degrees both in the show ring as well as hunting at night. I was experiencing some complications at night and although my glasses were helping me, it had come to a point to where I was ready to quit. By having the surgeries I have been able to continue my love for the sport. It has helped me to see better at night. I have earned several degrees and won competitions since my surgeries. I would definitely recommend the surgery to anyone and have certainly enjoyed my relationship with Dr. Edmonds and his staff."

"I feared that with the severity of my astigmatism, not only would I possibly not be a candidate for surgery but also feared the results might not be as good as I had heard others report. Dr. Iacobucci was so informative and thorough during his consult with me. He explained the PRK process and recovery time, as well as what I could expect every step of my recovery. The surgery itself was quick and painless. In fact, I never felt pain although I did experience some mild stinging as if I'd been swimming in a chlorinated pool. The morning after the surgery, I was seeing 20/40 which was almost as good as my vision with my contacts prior to surgery. As the days have passed, my vision has become sharper and clearer. I've had little to no pain or discomfort and I feel so amazed at the clarity of my vision. In my follow-up appointments with Dr. Iacobucci, he always talked at length with me about exactly what was happening with my eyes, the level of healing that had occurred so far, and what he expected to happen between then and the next appointment. Even though I would go into these appointments with questions, I never had to ask them because his consult was so thorough that he always covered them. His obvious knowledge and confidence in my treatment made me feel in very safe hands and I couldn't be more thrilled with the results. I feel like I've been given the gift of sight! A wonderful experience all around. Dr. Iacobucci and his staff are so competent, knowledgable, and friendly. I give them my highest recommendation and my sincerest thanks!"

"After swearing for years I'd never have Lasik due to my own fears, I finally considered it once I began working at Tidewater Eye Centers. It was a hundred times easier than I'd imagined. I was 20/80 before surgery, and now I'm 20/15 and can push myself to 20/10!"

I highly recommend this procedure to anyone considering it. In my opinion it is one of the best investments you will ever make! My only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner!"
