Why Not Give the Gift of LASIK This New Year?

Do you have someone in your life that is hard to get a gift for? Are you looking for a long-lasting present to give?

Or maybe you’re looking to treat yourself to something to begin the New Year. LASIK is a great gift idea for you or anyone else with glasses that leaves a lasting impact on the recipient.

It will improve your vision forever and help you live a better life. Keep reading to see why you should give the gift of LASIK this New Year! 

LASIK is Affordable

The cost adds up if you continuously have to buy contacts, contact solutions, and new glasses. The price for LASIK is a one-time payment.

While it is an up-front investment, it will save you money over time. LASIK is an excellent gift for a friend or family member for this reason.

Giving someone the gift of LASIK will let them save money on their eye health for many years down the road. When you consider this, LASIK is affordable and gives the gift of clear vision for many years.

LASIK Improves Confidence

If your friend or loved one has low self-esteem because of their glasses, LASIK will increase their confidence. It eliminates the aspect of their appearance that they do not like forever.

Enjoy Winter Sports

Giving LASIK as a gift is great for someone who loves winter sports. LASIK is an excellent gift if your loved one or friend loves skiing, snowboarding, tubing, or sledding.

Glasses are hard to wear with goggles, and contacts can always fall out during activity. LASIK makes their favorite winter sports more enjoyable.

 Automatic Clear Vision

Giving someone the gift of LASIK gives them visual freedom and a life without glasses or contacts. That means that after LASIK, they do not have to worry about getting numerous prescriptions to see clearly.

Giving LASIK as a gift also helps reduce the need to go to the eye doctor as often or find your glasses blindly. Finally, LASIK lets the recipient say goodbye to glasses and contacts forever. Giving the gift of LASIK makes unwrapping other gifts and everything else in life in the future even better!

LASIK Helps You Stay Safer

Refractive errors can cause safety issues. Glasses and contacts can fall off or get dirty at inopportune times.

And doing anything without them can be a hassle or, worse, pose a safety threat. For this reason, giving the gift of LASIK will keep them safe.

Whether you decide to treat yourself this New Year, or gift LASIK to someone else, it will be impactful. Nothing is as good as visual freedom, and with LASIK, you can give that to anyone you love, including yourself.

Traditionally, presbyopia, which happens to all of us as we age, has always meant glasses for clear reading vision. It's a condition not even correctable by laser vision correction. Luckily, there is an option. Refractive lens exchange allows patients a clear alternative to reading glasses and is capable of reducing or eliminating presbyopia by using an advanced multifocal intraocular lens.

Keratoconus describes a cornea that weakens as collagen fibers deteriorate, causing the cornea to adapt a cone-like shape. Keratoconus can cause blurred vision, light sensitivity, glares, and decreased night vision. In its early stages, keratoconus may be treated with the use of prescription glasses or contact lenses. Keratoconus is also one of the most common reasons for corneal transplant, and one of the most successful.

It's estimated that a million or more Americans have glaucoma and don't even know it. People with glaucoma often do not experience any symptoms until they begin losing their peripheral vision. One of the scariest things about glaucoma is that it usually has no symptoms in the early stages, earning glaucoma the name "silent thief of sight." Anyone can be at risk, so it's important to have your vision regularly examined.
