Top Reasons To Consider LASIK Besides Seeing Clearly

If you’re anything like the millions of Americans who suffer from blurred vision due to nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism, consider LASIK eye surgery. LASIK is a safe and proven way to correct these vision problems for a long period of time (10 years or more) or even permanently in some cases.

If never wearing glasses again is not reason enough to convince you, here are some of the top reasons why should consider LASIK:

1. The surgery takes less than half an hour

Yes, you read that right, LASIK eye surgery can be completed as an outpatient procedure in the same amount of time it takes to wash the dishes or watch a couple of episodes of your favorite sitcom. You don’t even need to go to the hospital. Just enlist a friend to drive you home from the ophthalmologist and within 24 to 48 hours, you will be seeing clearly.

2. Consider LASIK and you will never have to worry about losing your glasses again

Or spend time fiddling with annoying contact lenses and solution for that matter. Once an individual’s vision has been corrected by LASIK, that person regains perfect vision. After 10 years, only 10 percent of past LASIK patients needed a “top up” surgery. Great news for those of you who are tired of searching for your glasses every day!

3. LASIK is safe

LASIK is widely regarded by eye care specialist as one of the most effective and safest eye procedures. In fact, serious complications as a result of LASIK eye surgery are extremely rare. Millions of Americans and people across the world undergo LASIK each and every year, and with good reason.

4. Consider LASIK and save yourself money in the long run

All those boxes of contact lenses, bottles of solution, and pairs of glasses for reading, driving, watching TV all add up financially. Although the initial cost of a LASIK surgery is higher than other option, over the years it really does pay for itself. In fact, most people find that once they add up 10 to 20 years’ worth of lenses, glasses, and visits to optometrists, LASIK is substantially cheaper.

5. There’s less risk of eye infections

That may seem like a counter intuitive statement, it is an eye surgery after all. But LASIK means you are not as likely to be exposed to the contaminants and potentially damaging viruses that contact lens wearers are. When you consider how often contact lens wearers must change their lenses or clean their lenses, you start to get an idea of how LASIK is more hygienic overall.

6. LASIK has great satisfaction rates

Several studies have shown that people report excellent satisfaction rates with their LASIK eye surgery. In fact, these rates go as high as 98.5 percent. Many people report that they even experience benefits that they did not expect including better night vision and less difficulty driving at night.
