Many of the prospective LASIK candidates we see at Laser Eye Center of Miami want to know whether there is an ideal age or stage of life at which to undergo the vision correction procedure. Although we can’t pinpoint a perfect time to undergo LASIK, we believe there are certain benefits for millennial candidates.
Read on to discover three reasons why our team encourages millennials to consider LASIK.
LASIK Supports an Active Lifestyle
One of the defining characteristics of millennials is that they favor an active lifestyle. Whether it’s exercising, playing sports, traveling or taking care of their young families, millennials are constantly on the go. There is very little time to deal with the hassle and inconvenience of corrective eyewear. LASIK greatly benefits active millennials by providing the clear, independent vision they need to go about their day-to-day life without relying on glasses or contact lenses.
LASIK Is a Wise Long-Term Investment
LASIK makes good financial sense to the millennial generation. When comparing the recurring, rising costs of glasses and contact lenses to the one-time expense of LASIK surgery, the financial benefit becomes clear. In the long run, LASIK pays for itself by significantly reducing and even eliminating the costs associated with corrective eyewear.
From an age standpoint, having LASIK surgery done when the patient is younger allows them more time to enjoy the benefits. Millennials can look forward to a decade or more of clear, crisp vision before their eyes’ focusing power starts to change due to presbyopia.
Laser Eye Center makes it particularly easy for millennial patients to cover the costs of surgery by offering periodic specials on LASIK. Inquire with our office for details.
Quick Procedure With Minimal Recovery
The convenience of the surgery itself is highly appealing to busy, active millennials. Laser Eye Center of Miami has invested in state-of-the-art LASIK technology that makes the procedure and recovery period very quick. Millennials do not need to take a lot of time out of their schedules to have surgery and recover. In fact, most millennial patients are able to resume work as soon as the day after surgery.
