LASIK Testimonial

Description

NECN reporter Chris Collins discusses how the bond he formed with Dr. Sheth throughout years of eye care at Sheth-Horsley Eye Center led him to finally feel comfortable with the idea of undergoing LASIK surgery. After a 30-minute procedure, Chris immediately began noticing improvements in his vision. In this LASIK testimonial, Chris describes LASIK as a "modern-day miracle" that has greatly improved his ability to perform as a sports reporter.
