Is LASIK Worth It? The Benefits of Vision Correction Procedures
LASIK is widely considered to be one of the safest elective medical procedures available. It’s transformed the lives of more than 40 million people across the globe. While freedom from glasses and contacts can be hard to imagine for people who’ve relied on them for most of their lives, clear vision is possible through LASIK. But undergoing any surgery is a big decision, and it’s normal to wonder whether LASIK is worth the investment or not.
At LASIK MD, we take the time to educate each of our patients about the life‑changing benefits of LASIK, and there are plenty. Below, we take a look at some of the top reasons to invest in LASIK to help you decide if a vision correction procedure is right for you.
LASIK can give you freedom from glasses and contact lenses.
One of the biggest benefits of LASIK is the convenience it can offer in your daily life. With freedom from glasses and contacts, you’ll spend less time on mundane tasks, like searching for misplaced frames or cleaning your lenses. You can wake up each morning with clear vision and go to bed with fewer steps in your nightly routine.
LASIK can save you money in the long run.
LASIK may seem like a big investment, but it can be cost‑effective in the long run by reducing the costs associated with glasses and contact lenses. Use our savings calculator to see how much you can save across your lifetime.

LASIK is designed to be a long‑term solution.
The results of LASIK are designed to be a long‑term solution to most common visual problems, including nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.
Most refractive errors are caused by an irregularly shaped cornea. During LASIK, the cornea is reshaped by a laser to correct the refractive error. The results are permanent in the sense that the corneal tissue doesn’t grow back.
The recovery from LASIK is often quick.
LASIK often has a quick recovery, so you don’t need to pause your life for clear vision. Most of our patients are back to their everyday routine within 24‑hours of the procedure. Moreover, many patients see an immediate improvement in their vision directly after the surgery.
LASIK has a very high satisfaction rate.
The majority of patients would agree that LASIK is worth it, considering the procedure has such a high satisfaction rate.
According to a study done by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, 95% of patients are satisfied with their vision post‑LASIK. At LASIK MD, we have an even higher satisfaction rate, as 99% of our patients report being pleased with their sight after LASIK.
