There are all kinds of gifts you can give someone for the holidays, but have you ever considered giving Lasik surgery?

Earlier this morning we learned the gift of sight topped Newschannel 7's Luciana Da Silva’s holiday wish list.

How did the Lasik surgery go?

Even with the valium, I was still nervous when nurse Sharon prepped me for surgery. When it was time for surgery it made me feel better knowing this Lasik procedure was the latest technology in Bay County.

In the past, doctors used a blade to make a flap on the eye, but blade-free Lasik uses a special laser to make the flap, so instead of seeing a blade coming toward my eye, I saw a light and felt a little pressure and suction.

Only 10 minutes after stepping into the room, the procedure was complete.

Almost immediately, I could already see the results. The result was 20/20 vision less than 24 hours after my surgery.
