"I’ve worn glasses and contacts since the third grade. Contacts were hard on my eyes, and I didn't always take my contacts out like I should. Now that my vision has been corrected, I don’t have to deal with that. I felt like Dr. David Underwood was on my team the moment I walked through the door. He was so friendly and personal and talked me through each step of the procedure. He and the staff seemed to really care about making me comfortable. They made me feel like I was part of the family. The surgery didn’t hurt at all and now everything is easier. I don’t have to worry about swimming underwater, rubbing my eyes too hard or making sure that I have more contacts. It’s so easy, and I couldn’t be happier."

"I was up in the middle of the night with my baby and toddler, but I couldn’t see. Often I would wear my contacts to bed so that I could see during the night, but that led to constant infections. If I didn’t sleep in my contacts, I would sometimes wake up scared because I couldn’t make out the shadows in the dark. I finally decided to do the LASIK procedure. People had told me that it would be scary, but it wasn’t scary at all. Dr. Underwood and his staff were wonderful. After the procedure, I sat up and opened my eyes. I nearly cried because I could see the nurse’s face. Everything was clear. Now, I don’t have to worry about my kids grabbing my glasses from my face. I don’t have eye infections or headaches from my contacts anymore, either. I’m so happy I finally made the choice to get Z-LASIK."

 

Blanca Reyes

“I was tired of fooling with contacts; with the profession that I’m in, I really can’t afford to have a contact fall out … I’m a flight paramedic, so I deal with critical patients. I need to be able to see those patients. I’m not able to wear glasses, I work in a helicopter, and I can’t wear glasses in my helmet … The second they finished the procedure, I had 20/20 vision. I would absolutely do it again. I loved the experience. It was a really easy recovery. Get Z-LASIK. Get it now. Stop waiting. Call Dr. Underwood.”

 

Chris Starnes, Flight Paramedic

“Without my glasses, I couldn't tell if the black shadow in the doorway was my husband or a thief. The morning after I had the Z-LASIK procedure, I opened my eyes and everything was different. Having Z-LASIK was the best decision I ever made. I am so thankful for Dr. Underwood.”

 

Amanda Haltom

"I was sick of the hassle of glasses – keeping them clean and keeping up with them. After LASIK, I felt this constant relief of not having to depend on glasses. I’m a musician and my glasses were always in the way as I tried to focus back and forth between the conductor and my music. I don't miss my glasses at all, and I can see better than I ever have."

James Martin, College Student

"I’ve worn glasses since I was 16 and was never aware that I was good candidate for LASIK. In my opinion, LASIK makes daily life much more comfortable compared to traditional glasses and contacts."

Dustin Menzies, College Student

"Before Z-LAZIK, it was a hassle not being able to see. I always had to make sure that I had an extra pair of glasses, contacts and eye drops with me. If I lost a contact, I couldn’t even drive. The worst part was that I couldn’t do things like water tubing or skiing because of the fear of losing my contacts. I love ballroom dancing and I had no idea how much improving my peripheral vision would help me with that as well. I now have 20/15 vision. What has been most shocking is not just how far away I can see, but the clarity of my vision. I can see the details in the leaves across my yard. Z-LASIK has been like a reset button for my vision. It is so refreshing."

Sarah Estes

“I have always wanted LASIK surgery. I am as blind as a bat, so I wasn’t sure if I was a candidate. When the LASIK Center ran a promotion allowing you to pay for the surgery over a two-year period, I made an appointment and found out I was a candidate. After Dr. David Underwood did my Z-LASIK surgery, I now see perfectly and have no problems.” Haley Surratt, Hair Stylist, Savannah

"Z-LASIK was one of the best things I have ever done. I went in for my procedure and walked out seeing perfectly. I no longer need my contacts to see. It has just made my life so much easier, and great vision helps me appreciate the world so much more.”                  

Sherri Alperovich, Cardiology Clinic Manager, Mother

“I’m seeing 20/10 now, and I was seeing 20/400. The difference is unbelievable. I used to have very bad headaches when I wore contacts playing golf because the wind on the course would make my eyes swell. Z-LASIK gave me a way to play without the headaches. I also think it has improved my golf game. My depth perception is better, and I can read greens better, whereas with contacts it wasn’t quite as clear. I’ve been recommending Z-LASIK to everybody I know who is wearing contacts or glasses.” 

Kody Alexander

"Having Z-LASIK eye surgery literally gave me a whole new outlook on life ... I had been myopic since I was in second grade, and my eyesight had deteriorated to the point that I could not see at all without contacts. Even with contacts my vision was so poor that driving was becoming an issue. That’s why my optometrist, Dr. Phillip Agee, sent me to Dr. David Underwood at the LASIK Center of Jackson. Since the Z-LASIK surgery, my vision is great, and contacts are definitely a thing of the past for me.”  

Janeice Frisbee, Humboldt, First Vice President at BancorpSouth

“After 19 years in glasses and contacts, Z-LASIK gave me my eyesight back. This is a lifestlye change for me. My eyesight was horrible. Due to a thin cornea, Z-LASIK was my only hope for seeing better. I would whole-heartedly recommend it and Dr. Underwood to anyone.” 

Mike Harold, 26, Service Shop Dispatcher, Serra Chevrolet, Jackson

“Where are my glasses?” I will never ask that question again. After more than 20 years of wearing glasses and contacts, I was tired of them. As an attorney and an avid outdoorsman, I wanted to be able to see without always having glasses or contact solution. LASIK was the answer. It was quick, painless, and affordable. I love being able to see perfectly again. Thanks, Dr. Underwood.” 

Tim Wehner, Attorney

“LASIK surgery is one of the best things that has happened to me. I don’t have to deal with contacts or glasses anymore. Contacts bothered my eyes, and I couldn’t sleep in them. Now I can fall asleep watching TV, wake up and see the clock on my night stand. This summer I was in the ocean without worrying about my contacts. Thank you, Dr. Underwood, for doing an excellent job!” 

Whitney Young, 23, graduate student

“Having LASIK eye surgery was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I was tired of dry, red, itchy eyes from wearing contacts and the cost to buy solutions, eye drops and contacts. In one easy, 10-minute procedure, my contact troubles were over. I would tell anyone with contacts to go see Dr. David Underwood and the staff at the LASIK Center of Jackson and start living contact free.

Marissa McKewen

“I’ve had a great experience with LASIK. As a busy high school student, I don’t have the time to keep up with my glasses or worry if my contacts are going to rip. I would recommend LASIK surgery to all my friends and family. Call the LASIK Center of Jackson to see if LASIK is for you!”

Alesa Lam, high school student

“Ten years ago I had to wear large “coke-bottle” glasses and could not wear contacts because of my severe astigmatism. I had LASIK eye surgery in 2001 by Dr. Underwood. It has been wonderful as a Surgeon to have the freedom to not have to wear corrective glasses. I still have 20/20 vision." 

Dr. David Villarreal, General Surgeon

“It’s been a number of years since I had LASIK, and I still love the results. I had reached the point of having dry eyes with my contacts and just couldn’t wear them anymore. My glasses were heavy, uncomfortable and impossible to wear while doing any outdoor activity in this humidity. I love being able to take my photographs without needing vision correction.”

Pam Dietz, Photographer

“I was so tired of not seeing without my contacts or having to use glasses to read. Thanks to LASIK surgery, I now see better than ever. Who needs glasses or contacts? Contact LASIK of Jackson for an evaluation to see if you are a candidate for LASIK.”

Julie Cooke, 107.7 radio personality

“As I worked, it was hard keeping up with my glasses, and I couldn’t wear contacts because of allergies. Thanks to LASIK surgery, I don’t need glasses, and I now see better than ever. Contact LASIK of Jackson for an evaluation to see if you are a candidate for LASIK.”

Bas van Buuren, Owner, Dutch Garden Center

“Having LASIK changed my life. I had worn glasses or contacts since I was 5. When I first opened my eyes after surgery, I was astonished at the detail in every object that I saw. I am very active with sports, and not having to deal with contacts falling out, the expense of new glasses and new contacts, etc., has made my life much easier to manage.”
