My name is Levi Seymour, and I am a fireman for the IFD. I am a rookie on the job and have been subbing at firehouses on all sides of the city since late September. Prior to IFD, I spent five years as a fireman at Speedway.
Since the pandemic started, we have taken more precautions to protect ourselves and the public we come into contact with in terms of wearing masks, gowns, and other necessary forms of protection. It has been a challenge dealing with the virus as its implications and impacts seem to change on a daily basis. However, when the bell goes off, we still go out the door to take care of whatever the situation may be.
I am married to my beautiful wife of 7 years, Erica, and together we have two girls, Olivia, who is 5, and sweet Laila, who is 2. We live in a small town on the far westside. I have been wearing glasses since a failed eye exam in front of the whole class in 3rd grade at the great Clay City Elementary School in Clay City, Indiana. I upgraded to contacts a few years later, and I have been wearing them for about 17 years since. It’s just a part of life now.
LASIK would mean the world to me. It’s been on our minds for awhile, however, with other medical bills each year with the birth of the girls, them needing multiple sets of ear tubes, ER visits, and other medical testing, LASIK for me continues to fall down the list of priorities, as it should in comparison. LASIK would mean no more sleeping in contacts and dry eyes in the middle of the night when I’m on shift. No more making sure I have spare lenses, solution, glasses, contact cases, and drops with me everywhere I go. The idea of waking up and walking out the door being able to see is incredible. I appreciate being nominated, and thanks to the Price Vision Group for putting on this promotion. I would appreciated your vote, however, whoever wins will be more than deserving.
