LASIK eye surgery may sound intimidating, not to mention costly, but the investment is the best thing you can do for yourself. In less than an hour, this procedure can change your life. Here are just a few of the benefits of LASIK:
No more hassle of glasses or contact lenses
The most obvious benefit of LASIK is letting go of the hindrance of glasses or contact lenses for good. No more looking for your glasses or fumbling with contacts in the mornings, or falling asleep with your contacts in or your glasses on! Enjoy sports and outdoor activities without needing a separate pair of glasses or touching your contacts with dirty hands. LASIK gives you the freedom to enjoy your active lifestyle on your own terms. On top of that, LASIK pays for itself in not having to buy new glasses or contact lenses and accessories every year!
Reduced risk of eye infections
It’s a fact of life for contact lens wearers: no matter how well you wash your hands and clean your lenses, the fact that you’re constantly putting your fingers in your eyes puts you at risk for eye infections. And although you know better, you’ve probably slept in your lenses at least a few times, like most contact lens wearers, adding to your risk. LASIK not only eliminates the need to place a foreign object in your eye each day but through the healing time, you’ll break the habit of touching your eyes, as well, thereby reducing your risk of all contact lens-related infections and injuries.
Better correction than glasses
Our CONTOURA® VISION procedure uses the WaveLight® EX500 EXCIMER Laser Systems to map the unique imperfections of each eye for the highest resolution available. This procedure offers more precise, individualized correction than you can get from glasses or contact lenses, correcting not only near- or farsightedness, but also astigmatism, which can be difficult to correct with lenses alone. If you have trouble with your night vision, it may improve that, as well.
Quick procedure, fast recovery
The LASIK procedure takes only a few minutes and has a very short recovery time. In fact, you will be seeing more clearly as soon as you sit up from the procedure, and your vision will clear even more over the next few hours. Most patients are back to work the next day. You will use various eye drops on a schedule for about the first week, but pretty soon, you’ll forget you ever had less-than-perfect vision!
