Anthony, PRK Patient

I have lived most of my life with glasses. Very uncomfortable. Over time my vision got worse, and worse, and worse. I was considered legally blind. My glasses were thick and heavy. Made it hard to breath through my nose. I went to a lasik center not to far from STEI about two and a half years ago. The doctor there told me that I wouldn’t be able to get LASIK, only PRK.

Plus the price they quoted me left me at a point where I figured I’d never be able to get it. Just a couple of weeks ago I saw an add on Facebook for South Texas Eye Institute that struck my interest. I figured that I would give it a shot for a second opinion. When I contacted them I spoke to Myrandah. Myrandah answered every question I had to ask. Not only that, she made me feel very comfortable over something I was pretty scared of having. Her knowledge was quite astounding.

After all testing was done I met Dr. Martén. Dr. Martén spoke to me for a while and after telling her I was told by another place I can only have PRK. She disagreed. Told me I was fully capable of having LASIK. Which made me very happy/excited. Scheduled an appointment for 2/16/16. I just had lasik yesterday 2/17/16. Performed by Dr. Martén. Who also kept me very comfortable through out the procedure. She truly is an awesome individual/professional. The whole procedure took maybe a few minutes at most.

Today I am now seeing 20/15. So coming from being considered legally blind to 20/15 is a miracle made by Dr. Martén and her staff. Thank you to Dr. Martén, Myrandah, and the rest of South Texas Eye institute for changing my life for the better. I will forever be grateful. If you or someone you know is thinking or planning on having LASIK, PRK or anything concerning your eyes.

I highly recommend that you contact South Texas Eye institute.
