Do you wear glasses or contact lenses? If you do, then you’re likely a good candidate for LASIK surgery, even if you’re been turned down in the past!
LASIK surgery is a type of eye surgery that corrects your vision by reshaping the cornea, allowing light to focus more precisely on your retina. LASIK technology has made some tremendous gains in recent years, allowing surgeons to work on patients with problems like astigmatism, which used to lead to disqualification from LASIK eligibility.
Many successful LASIK patients are able to see perfect 20/20 vision after treatment, meaning that they don’t need to use contacts or wear glasses anymore. Still not convinced? Here are the top 5 benefits to getting LASIK surgery:
1. It’s Affordable
The cost of LASIK eye surgery may look scary up front (as it will typically cost you around a couple of thousands of dollars per eye) but fortunately many LASIK centers allow you to pay for your surgery in installments and over a one to two year period. This means you don’t have to dive into your savings or get into major credit card debt in order to pay for LASIK but instead can pay if off gradually and within a reasonable timeframe.
2. You’ll Save Money Long Term
Initially LASIK surgery may look like it costs a lot, but once you calculate the cost of vision insurance, paying for annual vision checkups, contacts or glasses – you’ll actually save a ton long term by undergoing LASIK surgery. This is because your lifetime costs of vision care and upkeep will more than likely substantially outweigh the cost of undergoing LASIK surgery.
3. Fast Recovery Time
A huge advantage of getting LASIK surgery is that the recovery time is fast. After your procedure you will usually be advised to rest your eyes for a couple of hours but be able to resume to your normal, everyday activities as fast as the next day. You don’t have to worry about a lengthy recovery time with LASIK – it’s quick and painless.
4. Improved Vision
The absolute top reason to get LASIK is because it will dramatically improve your vision. LASIK is designed to improve your vision to either 20/20 or as good as. If you have vision problems and struggle to see without contacts or glasses, LASIK can make the world of difference and permanently improve your vision. For anyone that wants better vision, LASIK is an excellent, reliable choice.
5. A Life Without Contacts or Glasses
Are you sick of constantly having to remember your reading glasses or the tedious daily process or putting in and taking out your contact lenses? You won’t have to worry about either of these after LASIK! You’ll save money by not having to buy new glasses or lenses and also eradicate the burden of having to maintain them. A life without glasses or contacts is possible with LASIK!
The benefits of LASIK are very simple – it works and it’s affordable. The next step is to get in touch with your local LASIK surgeon and get tested to determine whether you’re a good candidate. Good luck.
