Do you wear glasses or contact lenses? If you’re nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism, visual aids will help you see, but they can cause unnecessary frustrations.
If you’re at the end of your rope and ready to explore other options, why not consider getting LASIK? There’s a reason why it’s the most popular elective procedure you can undergo!
A significant part of its popularity is because LASIK works. By permanently reshaping your cornea, you can achieve visual freedom and change your life.
Seeing without glasses or contact lenses is a whole new way of living. Keep reading to learn some of the many ways that LASIK can change your life for the better!
No More Glasses
If you suffer from refractive errors, it’s a given that you need to wear glasses at least some of the time. Many people prefer glasses for one reason or another.
Glasses can be more reliable if you don’t want to deal with dry eyes or are concerned about contacts making your eyes too sensitive. Glasses can be simpler in many ways, but they also have drawbacks.
If you wear glasses, you know how annoying it can be to lose them when you just had them in your hand the minute before. Or how frustrating it is that they fog up when you take a sip of hot coffee.
Don’t forget about all the time you spend cleaning smudges off the lenses with the hem of your shirt because you don’t have a microfiber cloth on hand. They never seem to stay clean, no matter what you do! After a while, these tiny annoyances start to add up.
But when you choose to have LASIK, you can put these annoyances to rest without resorting to contact lenses. Once you no longer need glasses, you can do a lot more.
Headgear, like facemasks, safety helmets, and even VR helmets, will be so much more comfortable without glasses getting in the way. Have you ever tried to wear 3D glasses over your usual pair while at the movies?
It can lead to a headache! Even from an aesthetic viewpoint, imagine all the different sunglasses you can wear! You’ll have much more freedom with your appearance and what you can do.
No More Contact Lenses
Many people that wear glasses also wear contact lenses. If you wear contacts, you know they have their issues too.
One of the most frustrating is how often you have to change your contacts. It may only take a few minutes in the morning and at night, but those minutes add up.
What about the time you spend fumbling around when you try to put your contacts in while half-asleep? It’s not a great use of your precious time.
Or when you’ve had your contacts in too long, and they start to make your eyes feel dry and irritated? Do you really want your method of seeing getting in the way of how you live your life?
Not only can contacts be uncomfortable, but they can also make you more prone to inflammation and infection. If your eyes are too irritated to wear contacts, now you’re stuck wearing glasses instead.
Aren’t you tired of this frustrating cycle with your visual aids? If you’re a good LASIK candidate, there’s something better.
Getting LASIK allows you to stop wearing contacts. You’ll see clearly without glasses and without having to think about when to put in your contacts.
Unlike your contact lenses, LASIK doesn’t irritate your eyes. It’s an incredibly low-risk vision correction procedure that’s been FDA approved for over twenty years.
You’re far more likely to get an infection from wearing contacts than you are to suffer a complication from LASIK. LASIK is the way to go if you want to be more comfortable and live an easier life.
One thing that stops potential LASIK candidates from getting the procedure is the cost. There is an up-front cost associated with having LASIK.
But you can use financing options to pay for the procedure, making it far more affordable. Besides being more affordable than you think, LASIK can also save you money.
On average, glasses and contact lenses cost $500 annually. If you like fancy designer frames, it could be much more.
When you get LASIK, you’re cutting these costs out of your budget. No more bottles of contact lens solution, monthly contacts being delivered to your house, or expensive spare glasses to order when you scratch your backup pair.
Instead, you can keep that money and use it for things like buying your first home or traveling somewhere exotic. After a few years, most people pay off LASIK, and that’s when the procedure starts paying for itself. It’s one of the best ways to invest in yourself.
Not only can LASIK help you achieve visual freedom, but you’ll see better than ever. LASIK corrects your vision beyond what glasses and contact lenses could.
It should be no surprise that most patients see 20/20 or better after the procedure. LASIK has a patient satisfaction rate of over 96%, meaning most patients are thrilled with their new vision.
With such incredible vision, you can see so much more. Patients often say that colors look brighter and more vivid after LASIK.
LASIK can even give you better depth perception, improving your reaction times, which is why it’s so popular amongst professional athletes. But you don’t have to be a professional athlete to appreciate better vision.
LASIK will help you experience the world better, allowing you to see everything more clearly and get the most out of life.
A Better You
LASIK can help you advance in your career no matter what you do. It enables you to see better as an artist, enhances your ability to read music if you’re a musician, improves your reaction time as an athlete or first responder, and can help you in any work environment, whether that’s at the office or even at home.
You can give your best to every area of your life with crystal-clear, pristine vision. Don’t underestimate the power of clear vision and the all-day comfort that LASIK can give you.
