The entire team at Laser Eye Center of Miami would like to wish you and your family a very happy New Year. If you are struggling with the visual effects of a refractive error, we encourage you to consider making an important New Year’s resolution: improving your vision with LASIK surgery. By correcting nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism, LASIK can truly change your life.
In this post, our laser eye surgery specialists in Miami share five reasons for you to consider vision correction with LASIK in 2018.
1. The Convenience of Not Wearing Glasses or Contact Lenses
Many of our patients praise the convenience of life without glasses and contact lenses. You’ll love waking up in the morning and being able to read the clock without first fiddling around for glasses or contacts. You’ll enjoy playing with your kids without worrying about knocking your glasses off, or losing a contact lens. You can fall asleep anywhere at a moment’s notice without stopping to take out your contacts or crushing your delicate glasses. After a while, the inconvenience and bother of previously wearing visual aids will become very apparent.
2. To Ease Discomfort
Glasses and contacts cause many people to experience regular discomfort and sometimes even pain. Contact lenses can dry out the eyes and cause nasty headaches. Ill-fitting glasses can feel uncomfortable on the bridge of the nose. LASIK reduces and often eliminates many of these discomforts so you can feel better in your daily life.
3. To Make Travel Easier
If you are anticipating doing a lot of traveling in 2018, LASIK can make it a bit easier for you. With clearer vision, you won’t have to worry about packing bulky bottles of contact solution, or an extra pair of glasses. There’s no risk of forgetting, misplacing or breaking your visual aids when you are away from home.
4. To Further Your Career
People in certain careers, such as first responders or members of our military, require excellent vision and turn away candidates that wear glasses or contact lenses. By improving vision, LASIK can help people pursue their occupational dreams and enjoy professional success.
5. To Save Money in the Long Run
LASIK pays for itself over time. Although the one-time cost of laser vision correction is much higher than a box of contact lenses or a pair of eyeglasses, add up the amount of money you’ve spent over the past few years on glasses, frames, contact lenses, solution and routine eye exams. Years of these repeated costs can rival what you would pay for LASIK surgery. As an added benefit, you can use tax-free funds from a flexible spending account or health savings account to pay for LASIK.
