Chris Stewart, Notre Dame/NFL offensive lineman & law student on LASIK at Boling Vision Center

It’s easy to see a big defensive lineman trying to slip by you, but seeing safeties or cornerbacks at a distance without contacts or glasses was a real challenge for me. That’s why I decided to have LASIK at Boling Vision Center. The experience was truly amazing. The surgery only took a couple of minutes and the recovery was fast and painless. Now I can see more clearly than I ever imagined would be possible. And that’s the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

The LASIK Procedure was so much easier than I thought it would be. It was quick. I was in and out of the room in about 10 minutes. It’s a miracle. I feel like what has happened to my eyes, and what it has done for me, has been something that I can’t even explain. It has been the best thing that I’ve ever done.

Your vision after the surgery is even better than it is with corrective lenses or glasses, so I’m out there out on the court seeing better than 20/20 which is a tremendous benefit for me. Dr. Boling came very highly recommended by Coach McGraw. I could not be happier with my ability to see after my LASIK!

Aches and pains are a part of all college athletes’ every day lives; however, I didn’t realize that painful and annoying contact lenses didn’t have to be! I used to fight the constant irritation of contacts every day, worrying that they might fall out or tear … especially during allergy

season. This is no longer a worry for me now that I’ve had my LASIK by Dr. Boling! Although track seasons are a thing of the past for me, I’m now running in challenges called ” Tough Mudders” – 10-12 mile hardcore obstacle courses designed by British Special Forces to test strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie while tackling obstacles such as 12 foot walls, underground mud tunnels, fire, ice-water, and 10,000 volts of electricity! Talk about aches and pains! I would have never even dreamed of getting through a race like that without my contacts posing a major problem … but now I don’t even give it a second thought! And the best part was how easy the entire LASIK process was for me. The procedure was completely painless, the staff was so nice and helpful, and they answered every question I could think of before I even had the chance to ask! If you want the definition for amazing customer service, look in the dictionary under Boling Vision Center!
