Unexpected Benefits of LASIK
November 18, 2018 • 0 comments
What a privilege it is to witness my patients’ lives change after laser vision correction. It is so gratifying to hear about the ways that their personal and professional lives have transformed once they achieve clear, independent vision.
If you dream of a life free from glasses or contact lenses, I can help make that a reality. But if you are on the fence about undergoing surgery, it may help you to consider some of the unexpected or surprising benefits of the procedure.
Saves You Money on Glasses and Contacts
Some people hesitate to have LASIK eye surgery because of the cost; however, if you think about what you spend on glasses or contacts in a year, it becomes clear that LASIK is an excellent financial investment. The costs of prescription eyewear accumulate quickly, but with LASIK, you no longer need to worry about buying contacts, frames, lenses or cleaning supplies. LASIK virtually pays for itself in just a few years! Not to mention, time is money, and laser vision correction can save you valuable time that would otherwise be spent getting fitted for new contacts, picking out new frames or seeing your optometrist.
Makes It Easier to Exercise and Play Sports
Anyone who has ever lost a contact lens during a SoulCycle class or felt their glasses fog up on a morning jog can attest to the inconvenience of visual aids. By reducing or eliminating your dependence on glasses or contacts, LASIK makes it easier for you to engage in and enjoy your favorite physical activities, sports and hobbies.
Makes Travel More Convenient
If you rely on glasses or contacts to see clearly, you are undoubtedly familiar with the hassle of taking your visual aids with you when traveling. It is annoying to pack your lenses and cleaning supplies, only to lose a contact or break your glasses upon arriving at your destination. With independent, clear vision, you can travel easily and more conveniently, hopping on a plane at a moment’s notice and saving valuable space in your carry-on!
Allows You to Be a More Active Parent
Whether it’s attending to your child’s cries in the middle of the night without searching for your glasses, or cuddling a squirmy kid without worrying about breaking your glasses, LASIK enables you to be a more active parent.
Also, there are safety benefits: Nobody ever wants to think about emergencies, but in a situation when every moment counts, you do not want to have to fuss around with glasses or contacts. Every parent appreciates the peace of mind that comes with having clear vision in any scenario.
