Orange resident Steven Borden gifted his free LASIK to his daughter Kaitlin for the holidays.

Orange resident Steven Borden didn’t think twice when he put his name in the entry box to win a free LASIK at his optometrist Dr. Cynthia Broady’s office in Tustin a couple months ago. Then he got the call from NVISION Laser Eye Centers that he had won a free LASIK.

“Unfortunately, I have cataracts, so I wasn’t a candidate. But I knew my 21-year old daughter Kaitlin, who is a senior at Chapman University, would be. I thought what a perfect Christmas gift. I told her the news at our traditional breakfast on Thanksgiving Day.”

Kaitlin Borden received her free LASIK in Orange County by Dr. Tom Tooma at NVISION’s Newport Beach location on December 13. This is what she had to say the next day after her surgery and her new 20/20 eyesight: “When I woke up the next day, it was like a whole new world. The colors in my room were brighter, and I could see everything so clearly. It is amazing.”

“I have worn glasses since fourth grade so I am thrilled to be free of glasses,” says Kaitlin Borden. “Once I graduate from Chapman next year, I plan on pursuing a career in film and TV, and my new glasses-free look will definitely be an advantage in this image-conscious industry.”
