Why There’s Never Been a Better Time for LASIK Than Today

LASIK is the most popular elective surgery for a reason. Not only can LASIK improve your vision, but it can also provide you with greater visual freedom from contact lenses and glasses. 

By changing the shape of your eye, LASIK corrects your natural refractive error, whether you’re nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism. The procedure is low-risk, highly effective, and has a high satisfaction rate, with over ninety-five percent of people happy with the procedure’s outcome.

So why wait any longer to change your life with LASIK? Keep reading to learn why there’s never been a better time for LASIK than today!

Take Ahold of the Future

You may have heard that LASIK doesn’t last or becomes less effective over time. While LASIK can’t prevent age-related vision loss due to common conditions like presbyopia or cataracts, the surgery itself is permanent. 

In order to schedule the LASIK procedure, you need to qualify as a candidate. Part of qualifying as a candidate includes having a stable glasses prescription which ensures your vision won’t be subject to change in the near future.

You can get years and years of perfect vision out of LASIK. Since LASIK can’t prevent age-related vision loss, you’ll get the most out of it the earlier you have it in life. 

If you’re in your twenties and have been thinking about getting LASIK for a while, don’t wait any longer. Do your future self a favor by getting LASIK surgery now.

Look Your Best

One great way to grow as a person is to increase your self-confidence. An easy way to do that is through how you look.

Looking the way you want is more about improving how you see and think about yourself rather than what other people think about you. With LASIK, you can have more freedom to do what you want with your look without having to worry about contact lenses or glasses.

You can experiment with eye makeup. You can carry a smaller purse or wear slimmer pants with smaller pockets since you don’t have to worry about spare contacts or glasses.

You can wear any kind of sunglasses without having to fit them over your existing glasses. You can even use non-prescription glasses if you occasionally miss your old look. 

The possibilities are endless. And there’s no better time to change up your style than the present!

Invest in Yourself

Visual freedom is a gift that keeps on giving. But getting LASIK can do more for you and your future self than giving you perfect vision; it can actually save you money! 

It may sound counter-intuitive, but LASIK is an excellent financial investment as well as a good personal investment. While LASIK itself can be pricey, it’s a one-time expense.

Glasses and contact lenses, however, are an expense you have to deal with over and over. Just think about how much money you spend on contact lenses in a year or how much your last pair of new glasses cost.

Once you have LASIK, you will be able to decrease those expenses significantly. Every year after getting LASIK, you’ll have saved all that money. 

Eventually, LASIK will pay for itself, and the sooner you get it, the sooner you can start saving!

Simplify Your Daily Routine

You’ll have much more time and freedom without contact lenses or glasses. How much time do you spend changing in and out contacts every morning and night? 

How much time do you spend cleaning smudges off your glasses or waiting for the lenses to de-fog? How much time have you wasted in your life looking for a lost pair of glasses or dealing with a contact lens falling out of your eye? 

These may be tiny little moments you’ve gotten used to, but you’d be surprised just how much time gets spent caring for your various visual aids. Once you have LASIK, you’ll be able to do less every morning and night, simplifying your routine while doing away with the little annoyances. 

You can reduce your overall stress levels and spend more time doing the things you enjoy!

Have Your Best Summer Ever

If you get LASIK now, right at the beginning of the summer, you’ll have months to enjoy your new and improved vision. LASIK recovery is quick and easy. 

Many patients feel well enough to go to work the day after surgery, and it only takes a couple weeks for your eyes to heal enough to get back to most of your regular activities. That means you’ll have almost the whole summer to enjoy the rewards of visual freedom!

The whole world looks different when you don’t have to use contacts or glasses to see. Colors are brighter, and you may even have better depth perception! 

Stay active in the warm weather and take in all the sights. Get out and explore the world on vacation or live it up with your friends in town.

Wherever you are, you’ll have your best vision to improve every experience.

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.
