I recently had Dr. Blanton as my Lasik eye doctor and so glad I finally bit the bullet! My brother had it done a couple of years ago and well, he has been seeing 20/20 for ever since then! I suffer from chronic dry eyes staring at screens and deciphering prescriptions as a pharmacist all day so it came to no surprise after my consultation that I needed to wait and get another consult.I actually wasn't able to get the surgery done until after 2 consultations (about 1.5 months of using OTC and prescription eye drops). I am very happy that Dr. Blanton is so thorough and careful. He will not let you have surgery if there is even 0.001% of dry patches on your eyes (my silly question to assure myself lol)Not only that, but he has great bedside manners. He's been doing this for a long time and really makes sure that all your questions are answered. He's very easy to talk to and I will be recommending him to all my friends/neighbors/patients. I already told my one of my best friends who is an optometrist to start referring. Grateful for his friendly and professional team. Shout out to Ariel in assisting my worries during surgery day and Tatiana for being so efficient . If you are thinking about this, don't be like me and wait years to mull it over-- just do it!
