    Metro Eye Center Review

    February 11th, 2017

     

    I have had glasses since the age of three, and had a strong prescription of approximately +5.00 and +4.50. Being an active athlete with a preference for contact lenses, I switched to daily use of contacts in the 7th grade. Daily, prolonged use for over ten years made my eyes dry and increased the risk of developing some eye problems associated with chronic contact use. I had always hoped that laser eye surgery would be in the books for me, but the costs in Canada range from about $4000-$5000 (4.0-5.0 million won). I knew my eyes would get worse and worse from contact use but hated wearing glasses and couldn’t afford the surgery in Canada.

    I was ecstatic to learn about an excellent eye clinic in Daegu that was recommended by my eye doctor in Chilgok. The staff at Metro Eye Center were thorough, spoke good English, were friendly, and took the time to answer my questions, voice their opinions, and make me feel comfortable. After about 30 examinations and tests which lasted about an hour and a half, I was told I was a candidate for LASIK surgery, which has a very short recovery time of 2-3 hours. This was perfect for me, since I am an ESL teacher who had to return to work the next day. The procedure itself was fast, efficient, and painless. The doctor talked me through the procedure, and I was out of there within a half hour. I closed my eyes and napped for a few hours afterward, and woke up feeling fine!

    Over the past month my vision was slightly burry at first, but I could enjoy all my daily activities almost immediately. One month later, I am extremely satisfied with my results. I am still amazed at not needing to worry about contacts or glasses every day. As of this week, I don’t feel the need to use eye drops/artificial tears often at all. The only dryness I feel is sometimes first thing in the morning. Based on my level of correction, my surgery cost 1.5 million won, which is one of the greatest parts about this surgery! I would highly recommend to any foreigners who are living in Korea and are interested in getting LASIK or LASEK done here, to go to Metro Eye Center! I saved a lot of money, had quality care, and am very happy with the service and results! Thank you Metro Eye Center!
