As one of the coldest winters in history continues to punish Long Island, local resident Lena Wentz will be strolling the warm beaches of Montego Bay, Jamaica thanks to winning the Free Paradise Give-Away at North Shore Eye Care for her award-winning post-LASIK video.
“We were all very impressed with Lena’s post-LASIK video and we’re extremely pleased to send her off to Jamaica to enjoy her new vision,” said Jeffrey Martin, MD, medical director and chief surgeon of North Shore Eye Care. Patients undergoing LASIK surgery at North Shore Eye Care during the past 90 days received a free iPad and were then asked to produce and submit a short video to the Facebook page of North Shore Eye Care about how LASIK has changed their life. The video that received the most likes on Facebook and was voted ‘best’ by the doctors and staff was selected as the winner.
“The response we had to this social media campaign was quite impressive,” said Dr. Martin, who added, “it was fun for the doctors and staff to view the videos and gain a unique understanding of just how life-changing LASIK can be for patients.” Lena’s free paradise get-a-away includes 3 days and 4 nights at the luxurious Jamaica Grand Resort, where she will enjoy an all inclusive weekend for two in a beachfront cabana.
According to Jacqueline Hernandez, director of community relations at North Shore Eye Care, Lena was extremely surprised and “super excited” when she learned she had won the contest for best LASIK video. “Lena is just an awesome person and a great LASIK patient, so it was fun to share the good news with her,” Jacqueline said. “The staff and I had fun loading her up with hats, beach towels and other goodies that she can take on her paradise get-a-way. It was a very special day in the office when she came in and got the news!”
Lena received all-laser CustomVue LASIK at North Shore Eye Care, which is the same procedure approved by NASA and the U.S. military for astronauts and fighter pilots. With CustomVue wavefront imaging and diagnostics, Lena’s LASIK procedure was as unique to her vision or her fingerprint and DNA. After years of glasses and contact lens wear, Lena enjoys 20/20 vision and for the first time in years can wear non-prescription sunglasses!
