Winner of Free Lasik Has New Outlook on Life

Sara Ward, Western Michigan University student and Portage resident, has a new outlook on life since visiting Specialty Eye Institute’s Open House in Portage. Ward’s name was drawn at the event, and she was the lucky recipient of a Free Lasik procedure. Ward attended the Open House to learn more about SEI and their eye care services, never thinking she would actually walk away a winner.

The actual patient experience was a collaborative effort between Ward’s Optometrist, Dr. Patrick Holser, and SEI’s Ophthalmologist, Dr. Paul Ernest, to provide seamless care. Dr. Holser determined Ward’s candidacy for the surgery, while the actual procedure was performed by Dr. Ernest. Post-surgical follow-ups were provided by both physicians.

Just one day after surgery, Ward was ecstatic about her results, posting on SEI’s Facebook page, “Thank you SEI for showing me a whole new world! When I woke up the day after my LASIK and was actually able to read the numbers on the clock instead of seeing a big red blur it made me cry! Everyone at the Portage location was great and I will be recommending you to all of my friends!” After her one-week follow-up, Ward reported that her eyes were healing well and she was thrilled to realize her dream of 20/20 vision without glasses.
