Lasik Surgery

If you have been on the fence about getting LASIK, 2024 is the perfect time to give yourself the gift of better vision! LASIK is a safe, effective procedure that can allow you to experience greater visual freedom and less dependence on visual aids like glasses and contact lenses.

Keep reading to learn more about why 2024 should be the year you commit to better vision with LASIK!

Better Quality Vision 

Glasses and contacts correct refractive errors that cause vision issues. However, they can’t provide perfect, crystal-clear vision. 

Glasses can get dirty or fog up in cold weather. Contact lenses can be uncomfortable and less helpful due to dryness or slipping out of position. 

LASIK offers the same quality of vision correction without the drawbacks of contacts and glasses. You’ll be able to see clearly without worrying about smudges or dried-out contacts. 

Freedom from Glasses and Contact Lenses 

Imagine waking up and seeing clearly from the first moment you open your eyes. The majority of people who have LASIK have significant improvement in their vision and don’t need to rely on glasses or contacts.

Stop Paying for Contacts and Glasses

Glasses and contacts are expensive. A year’s supply of contact lenses can cost a couple hundred dollars.

Specialty lenses, such as toric contacts for astigmatism, may cost even more. These costs add up yearly, and you need to buy new corrective lenses. 

LASIK pays for itself with the savings from not buying new contacts or glasses every year.

Enjoy More Activities

LASIK is perfect for anyone who enjoys playing sports, working out, or spending time outdoors but doesn’t like worrying about protecting glasses and contacts during those activities. Travel enthusiasts will love not having to pack enough contacts for a trip or worry about losing a pair of glasses far from home. 

LASIK allows clear, sharp vision during water sports like swimming, water skiing, and scuba diving. 

Protect the Environment

If you’re concerned about reducing the amount of waste you create, moving away from contacts is a smart choice. The materials in glasses and contacts are not easy to recycle, nor is the packaging for contacts. 

Contact lenses, their plastic packaging, and bottles of contact lens solutions all pile up in landfills. With LASIK, you can reduce or eliminate the amount of waste from glasses and contacts. 

Look and Feel Better About Yourself

Have you ever struggled to take a selfie or participate in a Zoom call due to light reflecting awkwardly off glasses? Or have you worried about driving at night because of glare from contacts or glasses? 

LASIK can make you feel more confident about how you look and help you feel more secure doing activities that require sharp vision. 

Better Vision for Better Safety

Better vision isn’t just a matter of convenience. It can improve safety for common activities such as driving. 

If you work in fields like construction, medicine, or the military, your vision can affect the safety of others. LASIK offers reliable, effective vision correction that improves your safety profile and protects the people around you.
