As technology continues to advance, more and more people are starting to consider LASIK, and perhaps you are one of them! If you are considering LASIK surgery but aren’t sure if it is worth it, you aren’t alone. Many people put off LASIK surgery for years due to a variety of fears and uncertainties.
Let’s set those fears aside and talk about what you have to gain from undergoing LASIK surgery with VisionFirst Eye Center. Not only are you free from the annoyances of glasses and contacts – you can see your life carefree and clearly again… and that means the most. Here are the top ten reasons to get LASIK surgery:
Imagine waking up in the morning and immediately being able to see clearly. No fumbling with your glasses or contacts, no squinting to find the “snooze” button – you can just open your eyes and see the world around you. One of the most exciting things for most patients who have undergone vision correct surgery is the realization that they can see clearly 24/7.
Have you ever gone on a trip and realized you forgot to pack contact solution? Then you spent your entire flight worrying whether or not you will be able to find any at the hotel gift shop? Are you too busy fumbling for your glasses during a guided city tour instead of enjoying the view? LASIK will make your travels much more enjoyable (and lighten your packing!)
Ladies, have you ever opted out of wearing eye makeup because your contacts were bugging you? Or even worse, you get mascara on your contacts! LASIK will make putting on makeup a much more enjoyable experience. No more dryness, tugging, or eye drops. To ruin your perfect look.
Wearing prescription eyewear at work can be a minor annoyance for some and a major hassle for others. Some jobs won’t even allow you to wear contacts or glasses! LASIK will remove this obstacle entirely so you can perform better at work.
There are some people who struggle with self-confidence, and feel they have to hide behind their eyeglasses. For many, the confidence they gained by having LASIK made the procedure more than worth it.
Contacts and glasses are definitely a nuisance when it comes to exercising. There is always the fear of a contact accidentally falling out, and that not-so-lovely feeling of your glasses sliding down your nose once you start sweating!
Some bodies don’t react well to wearing glasses or contacts. Glasses can cause many people to have headaches and wearing contacts increases your risk of eye infection.
- Your budget
Many people are nervous about the cost of LASIK but what they don’t see is that it actually saves you money over time. Just try and calculate how much you’d spend on contacts, contact solution, eyeglass repairs over the course of your life! At VisionFirst, the cost of LASIK can be decreased by using insurance or a flexible spending account and becomes more affordable with 0% interest for 24 months.
If you wear contacts, you know how uncomfortable they can be at times. With LASIK surgery, you can leave the dry, itchy, or watery eyes behind.And best of all…
Freedom is the biggest reason why most people end up getting LASIK. LASIK gives you more freedom to enjoy your life and engage in the activities you love. The surgery is short, the recovery is usually pretty seamless, and then you are off to spend the rest of your life enjoying crystal clear eyesight.
