Christine Millsap (00:06) I was extremely nearsighted, and so people would even comment my glasses were like Coke bottle glasses. I just thought I was too young to wear glasses for the rest of my life. Dr. Cohen said, I can help you with that. He said, "I think you'd be a good candidate for what's called refraction surgery." Which basically is the same thing that people have done when they have a cataract taken out. Christine Millsap (00:32) You replace the lens with a new lens, and that lens helps you to see 2020. The first time I had my one eye done and my surgery, I came back to the office and they took the patch off, and I could see 2020 for the first time in a long time. It was almost miraculous for me because I had glasses since I was first grade.
