Radio DJs Ace & TJ Choose Christenbury Eye Center for LASIK Eye Surgery

Ace claims he has better vision than TJ’s 20/15 LASIK results after having the procedure himself - making them the best-seeing duo in radio! In July, Ace of The Ace & TJ Show on Channel 96.1 had LASIK eye surgery to correct his distance vision.

Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) July 31, 2013 -- In July, Ace of The Ace & TJ Show on Channel 96.1 had LASIK eye surgery to correct his distance vision. TJ previously had the same procedure at Christenbury Eye Center and continues to enjoy 20/15 vision. Now, "The Rockstar" and "The Love Specialist" of The Ace & TJ Show are seeing clearly and telling everyone about their experience. They chose Dr. Christenbury because they knew he was the best in the Carolinas because of his experience performing more than 75,000 LASIK procedures – more than anyone else.

TJ ("The Love Specialist")

TJ overcame his eye phobia after having LASIK in 2012. Dr. Christenbury and staff were very reassuring. Dr. Christenbury’s experience and knowing only the most advanced laser technology would be used gave TJ complete confidence. At his personal consultation with Dr. Christenbury with extensive testing, he was excited to find out he was a LASIK candidate. TJ had all his questions answered, and Dr. Christenbury explained how Wavefront Custom LASIK treatment would provide the best vision for him. Today, TJ enjoys 20/15 vision, even better than 20/20!

TJ overcame his eye phobia and now never has to deal with glasses or contacts again. Before LASIK, he joked to Ace, that even though he "looked fantastic" in his glasses, he often forgot to wear them, making driving a real hazard. However, after LASIK, he says he can now put everyone else’s mind at ease while he is driving.

"Since the day of the procedure, I couldn't believe I waited so long to have it done," says TJ. "At a recent public appearance for the show, I played a game with the crowd to see who could read the farthest sign - and of course, I won that game."

Ace ("The Rockstar")

Ace had had enough of TJ raving over his new vision after having LASIK at Christenbury, and knowing what a big baby TJ was prior to going through with the procedure, he knew it would be a breeze for him. He says, "I needed this surgery…..and not just as another step in the process to be just like TJ."

All kidding aside, TJ’s results alone convinced Ace to have the procedure.

The procedure was performed on his left eye for moderate astigmatism, to eliminate his visual imbalance, so both eyes would be 20/20. Ace had been walking around in a big blur – which TJ said he had noticed for years! After LASIK, Ace now sees better than 20/20!

"The staff at Christenbury Eye Center were very knowledgeable and communicative and explained every step so there were no surprises. Dr. Christenbury talked me through the procedure and explained what I would experience. The procedure was quick and easy and I felt nothing!" says Ace. "Dr. Christenbury’s results speak for themselves, 98% of patients are 20/20 and more than 50% are 20/15!"

Now, Ace can live up to the expectations of TJ and they are both safe on the road!

This procedure is designed for patients suffering from hyperopia and presbyopia. The latest clinical results show that CK can produce more stable results than previously, and is now widely accepted by laser eye surgeons around the United States.
