Testimonial from Candidate for the ICL
Nicola Tisdale of Port Charlotte had the ICL procedure done two years ago as part of a clinical study program at Eye Centers of Florida. Originally, she wanted to have LASIK surgery but Dr. Brown felt that she was a better candidate for the ICL procedure. “I was quite nearsighted and also had extremely dry eyes so I couldn’t wear contact lenses,” says Nicole. “I had worn glasses since the seventh grade and was so nearsighted I couldn’t see the clock next to my bed when I woke up”. “If my glasses weren’t where I had put them the night before, I wouldn’t be able to find them” she said smiling”!
