Do you depend on glasses and contact lenses? Are you tired of waking up every morning with blurry vision? If you’re ready to embrace visual freedom, why not consider a vision correction procedure like LASIK?

LASIK is often the first choice for many who have decided to achieve the crisp, clear vision they want while ending their dependence on glasses and contact lenses. With millions of satisfied patients, why wouldn’t you want to see what LASIK is like for yourself?

During LASIK, a femtosecond laser and an excimer laser create a corneal flap to access the tissue within the cornea. Once exposed, the corneal tissue is reshaped to correct refractive errors that impair the ability to see clearly. The procedure concludes with the replacement of the corneal flap.

LASIK only takes a few minutes to complete and the procedure can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Keep reading to learn why, if you want visual freedom, you should consider achieving it with LASIK!

LASIK Improves Your Vision and Your Ability to See Clearly

The most significant reason to consider LASIK is it can considerably improve your vision while helping you achieve visual freedom from glasses and contact lenses. Not only will you notice better vision, but LASIK enables you to see better than you could with visual aids.

That’s because LASIK corrects your vision beyond your original prescription, ensuring you can see better than when you depended on glasses and contact lenses. Among LASIK patients, 99.5% reported at least 20/40 vision following the procedure, while 90% said that they achieved 20/20 vision or better after LASIK.

Patients also reported crisper, clearer vision, improved depth perception, and better contrast when examining colors.

LASIK Offers Convenient Clear Vision

After LASIK, you can enjoy the convenience of clear vision without the hassles of corrective visual aids. With your newly improved vision, you can free yourself from the inconveniences of cleaning, replacing, or adjusting your glasses or contact lenses.

LASIK Saves You Money

The costs associated with buying and maintaining glasses or contact lenses can add up to more than you think you spent in one year. The one-time cost of LASIK eliminates those annual expenses, ultimately saving you money as you enjoy years of effortless clear vision.

Glasses and contact lenses, on average, cost about $500 annually. When you have LASIK, you’ll no longer have to spend this on your visual aids. Instead, you can spend it on what matters most, whether that’s a new car, the vacation you’ve been dreaming about with your family, or saving for a rainy day.

LASIK Enhances Your Lifestyle

Improved vision from LASIK can open up new possibilities for enjoying your favorite activities without the limitations and inconveniences of visual aids. After LASIK, you won’t need special goggles or glasses to see clearly to enjoy swimming a few laps, shooting some hoops, or spending a day at the beach.

LASIK Has a Quick Recovery

Thanks to its quick recovery times, LASIK allows you to return to life with improved vision. It also has few complications, and if you experience side effects like dry eye, these usually go away on their own after a few days.

LASIK is Very Safe

Innovations and advancements in LASIK technology have made the procedure extremely safe. It should come as no surprise that LASIK has a 96% patient satisfaction rate since patients love their vision after the procedure. Since becoming FDA-approved, LASIK has only continued evolving, making it safer and easier to undergo.

LASIK Provides Long-Lasting Results

LASIK is a permanent procedure because it reshapes the cornea to correct refractive errors. Although LASIK cannot prevent age-related eye conditions like cataracts or presbyopia, it can provide you with many years of crisp, clear vision.

LASIK Increases Self-Confidence

LASIK can increase self-confidence and self-esteem by eliminating dependence on visual aids. If your glasses affect how you feel about yourself, getting LASIK can help you emerge from behind the frames and reveal a beautiful you, inside and out.

LASIK Saves You Time

With LASIK, you’ll have more time to enjoy your morning coffee before work when you don’t have to deal with fumbling around for your glasses or trying to put in your contacts while still half asleep. The time-savings offered by LASIK are particularly noticeable for those who wear contacts and who have to devote extra time and effort to keeping them maintained and clean.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a little extra time for yourself? After LASIK, you can have more peaceful mornings without worrying about glasses or contact lenses!

LASIK Reduces Your Environmental Impact

Using visual aids can have a serious impact on the environment. LASIK can help you lessen your carbon footprint by reducing the waste associated with using contact lenses or replacing your glasses.

Is LASIK Right for Me?

You may be a good LASIK candidate if you’re at least 18, have a stable prescription that’s remained unchanged for a year or more, have a prescription within LASIK’s treatment limits, and have thick enough corneas. You also need to be in good health with no preexisting eye conditions like untreated dry eye syndrome.

Other procedures may be a better fit if you’re not a good candidate for LASIK. These may include procedures like refractive lens exchange (RLE) and photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), which are often better if you don’t qualify for LASIK due to thin corneas or dry eyes.
