Why Should I Have LASIK?
If you are struggling with vision problems because of a refractive error, LASIK surgery may be the right tool to improve your eyesight. By correcting nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism, LASIK can truly change your life.
Some reasons why you may consider LASIK surgery are:
Convenience – One of the most positive reasons to have LASIK is the convenience of life without glasses and contact lenses. Imagine waking up in the morning and being able to read the clock without first searching for glasses or putting contacts in.
Comfort – Glasses and contact lenses cause many people to experience regular discomfort and sometimes even pain. Contacts can dry out the eyes and cause irritation; ill-fitting glasses can cause pain on the bridge of the nose. LASIK reduces and often eliminates many of these discomforts, so you can feel better in your daily life.
To Further Your Career – People in certain careers, such as first responders or members of our military, require excellent vision and candidates that wear glasses or contact lenses may be turned away. By improving vision, LASIK can help people pursue their occupational dreams and enjoy professional success.
To Save Money – Although the one-time cost of laser vision correction is much higher than a box of contact lenses or a pair of eyeglasses, once you add up the amount of money you spend in just a few years on glasses, frames, contact lenses, solution and routine eye exams, you will realize that LASIK pays for itself over time. As an added benefit, you can use tax-free funds from a flexible spending account or health savings account to pay for all or part of the LASIK cost.
