My work dreams were dashed when I started wearing glasses in Matric. As the years went by, my eyes for long distance deteriorated. I was told that when I get to the lovely age of 40 that my eyes would suddenly get worse. And so they did at the age of 42 I could no longer go without glasses at all.
As a competitive horse rider, wearing glasses was considered dangerous and contact lenses were not an option for me.
When I was offered the opportunity to have laser done, I jumped at the chance. Eighteen hours of discomfort was well worth the end result.
This experience has taken my riding confidence to a new level. I can now see the markers clearly from 60 meters away, which made my accuracy nearly perfect.
I cannot thank Dr Bawa and Sr Vicky enough for their patience and kindness.
