Gretchen Ho took to social media to share an important update about her life and health.
KAMI learned that Gretchen underwent Lasik eye surgery at the Asian Eye Institute to improve her vision.
According to Gretchen, she got motivated to undergo the operation because her mother also had Lasik surgery many years ago and it drastically changed her life for the better.
The popular host also admitted that she felt nervous at first about the surgery but Dr. Robert Ang was able to lighten up the mood throughout the procedure.
She had to receive anesthesia to avoid severe pain but she still experienced normal side effects such as seeing different lights and feeling some pressure on her eyes.
Fortunately, the operation was a big success and her vision was restored to 20/20 from 626/600.
“Since a lot are asking how it felt, nung una kinakabahan din ako sa operation, but doc was talking to me all throughout! I saw different lights, felt some pressure lang on my eye, but everything was painless! They used anesthesia drops that were strong enough for me to not feel anything. The whole operation lasted 30 minutes. Afterwards, when the anesthesia wears off, medyo masakit lang ulo, may konting uncomfortability sa mata, pero mawawala din pag tinulog mo na. They use bladeless technology kaya until now, I don’t feel any pain. So amazed with how advanced the tech now is!!
“A day after.. my eyesight is a lot clearer, still a bit hazy as my eyes are still adjusting, but I already feel so liberated! The biggest bonus of all: me addressing my fears that the world would end at maubusan ako ng contact lenses . So for those who are thinking of doing lasik, it’s really a worthy investment! Can’t wait til everything gets 100% clear,” Gretchen posted on Instagram.
