Dry eye is a multifactorial disease of the tears and ocular surface that results in symptoms of discomfort, visual disturbance, and tear film instability with potential damage to the ocular surface. It is accompanied by increased osmolarity of the tear film and inflammation of the ocular surface.

Clarity For The Family Andrea & Rio’s LASIK Party | Shinagawa Feature Story

Clarity For The Family: Andrea & Rio’s LASIK Party

Like aunt, like a niece.

Both wanting to have a better quality of life with bright eyesight, Andrea Lim and Rio Valino were determined to have LASIK. And so they did.

Aunt Rio has been targeting to have LASIK for quite some time and convinced her niece (Andrea) to have the procedure with her at Shinagawa for them to have brighter visions and eliminate their daily struggles.

Together, they went to Shinagawa this past June 2020 and in a matter of just two days of screening and LASIK procedure, their lives were enhanced drastically with their brand new eyesight.

It’s really a long time plan of mine to have LASIK and I’m very happy to finally be able to have it. I now enjoy a 20/16 vision after having LASIK at Shinagawa,” shared a thrilled Rio after her LASIK. “Gone are the days that I have to deal with my 475 eye grade. None of that anymore, just everything in HD and a better life.”

“I really am super happy with my 20/12 vision after LASIK! Thank you Shinagawa Ortigas for giving us better than 20/20 vision,” added an equally grateful Andrea. “Having astigmatism was a struggle so I really wanted to have LASIK right away after quarantine to have a better vision and I’m very satisfied with the result. Hands down, the best investment so far.”

Now experiencing the big difference that a perfect vision presents after LASIK, the two shared how they now live with more ease.

“I can now watch my favorite shows better with brighter eyesight,” said Rio.

“I can now drive at night with ease and read everything better. I can finally read the street signs without wearing glasses,” said Andrea.
