WHY LASIK

Five Reasons to Get LASIK Vision Correction

Posted on 2013/09/09 at 12:22 pm by LASIK MD

LASIK offers a permanent solution to common vision problems including nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. It is quick, easy, and safe, and LASIK MD has been performing the procedures for more than a decade. If you’re thinking about undergoing a procedure, here are five practical reasons why you should finally make the decision.

1. Go to Sleep Without Your Contacts

Imagine going to bed at night without the hassle of taking out your contacts, as well as waking up in the morning and not having to put them back in. If you have a laser vision correction procedure, you’ll be able to wake up at night and actually see what time it is on your alarm clock and see your partner sleeping next to you.

2. Play Sports Without Special Glasses or Fear of Having Your Contacts Fall Out

Wearing your prescription glasses while playing sport isn’t a great idea. You risk damaging them and yourself. Special sports glasses are an alternative, but they are expensive, uncomfortable, and can be unattractive. Even contacts aren’t the hassle-free solution they seem for people playing sport. They can be dislodged through every contact and activity, and trying to find them on a field or court can be difficult. And if you do find it, you can’t simply pop the dirty lens back in your eye. Why continue to subject yourself (and others) to the agony of that defeat?

3. Travel Without Worry

When you correct your vision through a LASIK procedure, you never again have to worry about bringing along that cumbersome medicine kit full of extra contacts, cases, and solution. Also, being able to actually see the places you’ve paid to visit will make you want to travel more.

4. The Procedure Pays for Itself

A LASIK procedure actually pays for itself in the long run. You’ll no longer have to purchase expensive contact lenses, glasses or prescription sunglasses. Many insurance providers pay for some of the cost of a procedure, so it can actually be more affordable than you think.

5. Better Vision

The most incredible part of undergoing a LASIK procedure is that 98% of patients achieve 20/40 vision afterwards, the level you need to drive a car without wearing glasses or contact lenses. Some patients even exceed that, gaining better than 20/20 vision afterwards. LASIK can also improve your nighttime vision.
