Feet and shower drain

Dear Dr. Slade,

Back in 1989 or 1990, when I was 19 or 20 yrs old, I was considered legally blind ( -10 & -11 eyesight). My glasses were like coke bottles and my contacts had to be specially ordered. I had gone to several eye doctors and all of them said they could do nothing for me. Someone told me about you and my parents decided to take me to see you in Houston to see if you could do anything for me. The first doctor who saw me there said they couldn’t do anything, but I remember you walked by and saw me crying. You came in and said “Why don’t we try something different on you! Let’s do LK first and then do RK over that and see if we get any improvement.” I was beyond excited, even if to get a little improvement enough to wear thin glasses.

You DID IT!!! IT worked!!!! I got my whole sight back! I remember reading all the road signs on the way home to Austin and crying with enjoyment! I remember crying in the shower when I saw my feet for the first time!! It’s been over 20 years, and I still think about you every day I wake up in the morning and look at my alarm clock!!!

You opened a whole new world for me that day, Dr. Slade and I’ve enjoyed every second of it! I’m now 47 years old and I can still see clear as the day I left your office!

There are only 3 people that have affected my life in such a profound and beautiful way and you are definitely one of them!! I will forever be thankful and grateful for you taking a chance on me! I am truly blessed to have been a patient of yours! I will never forget you, Dr. Slade!! YOU ROCK!!!
