I remember being about 8 years old and attending Catholic School. The nuns were extremely strict, and they made us sit in rows according to how tall we were. I was taller than most of the other children so I would always end up sitting in the back of the class. This worked well until I hit age 8 and suddenly could not see the chalkboard anymore.
When I came to Eye Care North to see Dr. Lam, I had been experiencing severe bouts of vertigo, chronic migraine, nausea, neck pain, and light sensitivity for many years. I was able to find relief from many of the migraine symptoms through the help of a neurologist, but the vertigo was worsening over time.
I wore glasses from age 10 until 1998 at age 26 when I had the LASIK procedure done. I enjoyed perfect vision for 10 years until I began wearing glasses in 2008. In 2010, I needed a touch up done but found out that my vision had changed too much and my cornea was too thin to complete the procedure.
