When you can’t see, and you need vision correction with contacts or glasses, it can become a real pain. You need to constantly change contacts and have to clean them and store them. You need to clean your glasses and make sure that you are careful with them and do not break or scratch them. If you are tired of contact lenses and eyeglasses, you might wonder if you are a good candidate for LASIK.
LASIK is where a doctor will surgically correct your vision. They use lasers to correct your vision and restore it to 20/20 vision or as close as they can get to perfect vision. It is a minimally invasive surgery with good success rates and short recovery times. LASIK will eliminate the need to wear contacts or glasses and will allow you to see perfectly without them. You have to meet a few requirements to see if you are a good candidate for LASIK, so a visit with an optometrist is required to make sure it is right for you.
You might think that the cost of LASIK is not worth it. However, LASIK is actually more affordable than you might think it is. Plus, if you add up the amount you spend on eye exams, glasses, contact lenses, contact lens cases, lens solution, and eye drops every year, it just might surprise you. You are already spending more a year then you might think and putting the cost towards LAKSIK might make good financial sense.
