Many people wait to get LASIK done until they can’t tolerate wearing glasses or contacts any longer. Most patients after getting LASIK, wish they had done it years ago!
If you’re in your 20s and are considering LASIK, here’s why you should choose to do it now!
The price of LASIK may deter you from getting the procedure done, but the money you spend on contacts and glasses can easily be invested in getting laser eye surgery. If you wear glasses, you should be getting your eyes checked often for changes in your sight. If your sight changes, so does your prescription. This means you may need to purchase a new pair of glasses or lenses, which can end up costing a lot more than you anticipated. If you use contact lenses, the amount of money that’s spent on contacts and the solution over the course of a lifetime is actually more than the one-time cost of LASIK. We also offer financing options to help patients find a solution that works for their budget.
Experience Clear Vision Sooner
The sooner you get LASIK, the sooner you will be able to see the world clearly without the hassle of glasses or contacts.
With LASIK, you won’t have to deal with:
• The fog on your glasses that hot beverages or soup causes
• Making sure you take out your contacts every night before bed to avoid possible infection
• Looking for your glasses because you constantly misplace them
• The annoying pressure on your nose from wearing glasses all day
• The war between wearing your glasses or sunglasses on sunny days
• Dry, itchy eyes from contacts
• The glare from your glasses in pictActive Lifestyle:
Sports: If you play sports and wear glasses or contacts, you’re aware of how irritating it can be. With LASIK, sports can be much easier and a lot more enjoyable when you don’t have to rely on glasses or contacts.
Young adults are travelling more and more, but who wants to travel the world with the inconvenience of wearing contacts or glasses? LASIK can prevent aggravating dry eye symptoms that contact lenses can cause while being on an airplane, and can allow you to see the world clearly. You also won’t have to worry about packing your glasses or calculating how many contacts you will need for the duration of your trip.
One of the biggest advantages of LASIK is how it can positively affect your career. Here are some jobs where the benefits of LASIK are tremendous:
People who work at an office are already susceptible to eyestrain, dry eye, and stress on the visual system. Contacts can significantly worsen dry eye symptoms and can cause a glare for those with astigmatism, which is the last thing you need at work. Glasses can also be irritating because of the pressure they can cause on your face. Additionally, if your prescription is not up to date, you may even experience headaches and excessive eye strain. With LASIK, you don’t have to worry about any of those things!
Construction workers are relatively active and are often required to wear safety glasses on the job. Wearing glasses and safety glasses at the same time while working can be aggravating. Contacts may not even be an option for construction workers, as contacts are not recommended for those who work in a dusty, debris-filled environment. Good vision is crucial in this field of work due to the high risk of injury, which is why LASIK is an exceptional option!
First responders are constantly active, and poor vision is unacceptable. First responders work in many different environments that can be dusty or contain exposure to heavy chemicals, which is not recommended for contacts. Glasses can fall off, break easily, and may even be uncomfortable. LASIK is ideal for first responders because eye sight is crucial, especially during emergencies.
