Callie's Story

Doesn’t Callie look beautiful in her new glasses?

Gulf Coast Eye Center has had the pleasure of meeting Callie and her family.  We are so blessed to be a part of Callie seeing the world clearly for the first time at 15 months old. Here is a little piece of Callie’s story.

Born at just 22 weeks, Callie had less than a 5% chance of survival. At 5 days old, she was diagnosed with NEC (a deadly infection of the intestines). Then, she was given 0% chance. Today, she is 15 months old and continuing to defy all the odds that were against her.

Monica M. MMA Fighter

Being a Professional MMA Fighter my eye sight is huge. I’ve been fighting for 2.5 years now wearing contacts. Of course my contacts get knocked out about a minute into every fight, and I end up fighting half blind. I was blessed to come across Gulf Coast Eye Center and their amazing and caring staff a few months ago. We got my LASIK eye surgery lined up and just one day after the surgery I am already seeing clearly! This is going to change my life forever and I am so grateful to everyone who took part in this process. From the moment I walked through the doors I was greeted with smiles and made to feel so welcome. The surgery itself was quick and relatively painless. Once again thanks so much to everyone!!
