From her own words, she expresses her excitement & gratitude.
Hello! I just got the phone call confirming that I have WON the contest you had going on Facebook. I have won the Grand Prize of a FREE LASIK procedure!! I am BEYOND excited.
My name is Tracy, and I am 41 years old. I got my first pair of eyeglasses in 4th grade. I could not believe what I was seeing! I am sure I needed glasses way before this, but it was not discovered until 4th grade. I didn’t know that I couldn’t see, I thought it was how everybody saw. Until I got the glasses. I couldn’t believe all of the individual leaves on the trees, and just everything around me was amazing! I went through several pair of glasses through grade school, as my prescription continually got worse year after year. My glasses were very heavy, and big and bulky. Even though I never really got teased very much, I did not like them AT ALL!!
When I started High School, I talked my mom and dad into getting me some contact lenses. My father was very against it, but he gave in. That was in 1985, and I got one pair of daily wear soft lenses. LOVED THEM! I loved them so much that I slept with them in (BIG NO-NO)!! Then I started to get a terrible infection in my eyes. They were so red and BURNING and irritated. Come to find out I was allergic to the thimerisol that was in the solution I used. It was back to glasses so my eyes could heal.
Several doctors have told me over the years that I am a perfect candidate for Lasik. It has been a dream of mine since I can remember. I cannot even imagine waking up in the morning and opening my eyes and being able to SEE! I sleep with my glasses under my pillow. Ha Ha Ha. I ALWAYS have on either my glasses or contacts. It is such a hassle and just overall depressing everyday to be dependent on them. Always worrying if they are going to break, or get lost, or whatever. Just a daily struggle.
I saw the contest on Facebook, and hesitated in entering because I thought it was some kind of scam. I finally said, what the heck, it could be real! This could be my opportunity for a DREAM COME TRUE! When all of my childhood friends started voting for me, and sending me comments and messages, it just touched my heart that they cared so much about me and my eyesight after all of these years. The votes were rolling in, and I could not even believe when I took the lead, and WON THE CONTEST!
I waited about 20 minutes (after dancing around the kitchen), and I found the Feinerman Vision website, and called the number! Office was closed, it was after 5pm!! I couldn’t sleep well last night. I kept thinking, could this really be true?? I woke up this morning, and called the Office again. I explained to the lady who answered that I had entered the contest on Facebook, and I thought I had won! Cindy must have heard the excitement in my voice when she confirmed that yes, she was aware of a contest, but she did not know all of the exact details. Cindy was so nice and polite and I know I was rambling on and on to her. She said I sounded so cute..I just kept saying,”I WON I WON!” Whoo-Hoo! Cindy told me that the Lasik Coordinator would be calling me back shortly to talk about it. Sure enough, 15 minutes later the phone rang! It was Kim! She was also very polite, and kind. However, she told me that all of the votes had to be counted and looked over to make sure that everything was legitimate, and fair with the voting. She said thank you for entering the contest, another lady will be calling you back to let you know if you won or not. It was a long three hours, then my phone rang. I answered, and the lady on the other end said “I am calling to CONGRATULATE YOU FOR WINNING THE CONTEST!” WoW! I have never been so excited, happy in my life!!
I cannot express the JOY I feel in my heart right now. I am beyond excited, and this is going to be my DREAM COME TRUE! I cannot wait to meet Dr. Feinerman!! I have looked over the website, and also read several reviews on Yelp about Dr. and his staff. I feel so comfortable and at ease about having this Lasik done. I have been waiting for this day for years and I cannot believe it is actually going to happen. I have been blessed in so many ways. I am so anxious to have the procedure done, and I bet I could make a GREAT commercial afterward. LOL!!
From the bottom of my heart I thank you for this awesome opportunity! Looking forward to meeting you all!
Thank you so much,
