Make an appointment Giovanna Maria Maringo, Palermo (Corleone) Votazione: Eccellente Home / Testimonianze / Giovanna Maria Maringo Problem: Astigmatism, High MyopiaSolution: Astigmatic keratotomy, Refractive phacoemulsification I underwent surgery for high myopia and astigmatism in both eyes on September, 19 and 20, 2013 and my quality of life has immediately improved. Surgery began with a simple local anesthesia (eye drops). During surgery, I didn’t feel any discomfort or pain and the procedure took about ten minutes. After surgery, I immediately started to see better and I went out from the operating room without any bandage. The only inconvenience I mentioned, during the first days after surgery, was a slight and bearable burning and light sensitivity which disappeared in the following days. After surgery I immediately went back to my everyday life, finally without the need for contact lenses or glasses. I recommend this surgery with Dr. Federico Badalà and his professional, kind and passionate staff.
