Were you considering getting LASIK, but pressed pause on your plans when the COVID-19 pandemic hit? You may be surprised to discover there is no need to delay your treatment any longer. In fact, right now is a good time to get LASIK.
Read on as Laser Eye Center of Miami reveals why LASIK should still be on your radar.
No More Contacts-Related Eye Fatigue
With more jobs and classes taking place online instead of in person, people find themselves staring at their computers, phones and tablets more often throughout the day. If you wear contacts, this increase in screen time can have uncomfortable side effects — primarily, increased eye fatigue and dry eyes. LASIK can help you get rid of contacts and enjoy clear, comfortable vision.
No More Foggy Glasses
Masks are a mainstay in helping slow the spread of COVID-19. Unfortunately, masks and glasses don’t mix well. When your breath escapes through the top of the mask and hits the lenses of your glasses, the lenses fog up, making it difficult to see what’s in front of you. In some situations, this isn’t merely annoying — it’s actually dangerous! Getting LASIK can give you the reprieve you need from fogged-up glasses and help you see clearly and confidently in any situation.
Less Need To Touch Your Eyes
There are currently no documented cases of COVID-19 being transmitted through the use of contact lenses. However, the use of contacts requires frequently touching the face and eyes, which is something that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention discourages us from doing more often than is necessary. If touching your face or eyes makes you nervous, you should explore getting LASIK.
Flexibility With Scheduling and Financing
Less time spent commuting or traveling for work or leisure frees up availability to schedule LASIK consultations, evaluations and surgery. Many of our patients are also diverting funds that they would have otherwise spent on vacations, eating out and going to sporting events or concerts to paying for LASIK.
Reclaim Control Over Your Vision
Like many others, you may be struggling with feeling as though you have lost control over areas of your life, thanks to COVID-19. Maybe your personal circumstances have changed significantly or you have had to put important plans or goals on hold. This can lead to feelings of insecurity or anxiety.
Consider that you have not lost the ability to take control of your vision. You do not have to settle for reliance on glasses or contacts — you have the freedom to pursue a glasses or contacts-free lifestyle and reclaim control of an important aspect of your environment.
