LASIK eye surgery is a revolutionary treatment that will correct your eyesight. But, maybe you don’t feel ready to undergo the procedure and that’s completely understandable. That’s why here at Ultravision, the leading LASIK Surgery in San Antonio, we’ve made a list of reasons to help you make that decision and ease your nerves about the process.
Here are the main reasons why you should book your LASIK eye surgery today:
1. Wake up with clear vision every single day
Do you reach for your glasses first thing in the morning? Or stumble around until you find your contacts? Imagine opening your eyes and being able to see everything clearly. 85% of patients who have LASIK surgery achieve 20/20 vision – that’s pretty much perfect. Another 10% still gain above average vision and find that the improvement in their daily life is transformative.
2. LASIK will reduce your risk of infection
If you wear contacts everyday, you may not be aware that you are putting yourself at risk of infection. In all likelihood, at some point, you have suffered an eye infection, which is unpleasant at best and can be debilitating in its worst forms. Think about how much you touch your eyes when inserting and removing your contacts, and what your hands may have been in contact with that day (on door handles, money etc.) Many patients also put themselves at risk by leaving their contacts in too long, and their eyes get irritable and watery.
3. LASIK will save you money
Many patients are concerned about the cost of LASIK eye surgery but in fact, it will actually save you money in the long term. Contacts or prescription eyewear are not cheap and most patients spend over $1,000 a year just on their glasses. When you add up the costs, it balances out in favor of LASIK, and will lead to you saving money in the long run.
4. Feel more confident
When you have ditched your glasses or contacts, most patients reported that they felt more at ease and confident in themselves. Boosting your self-esteem doesn’t have a price tag!
5. LASIK gives you more time and freedom
You’re probably used to your glasses or contacts if you’ve been wearing them most of your life, but you won’t believe the freedom that you feel when you don’t have to worry about them anymore. From first thing in the morning to the time you’ll save not picking up your prescriptions or making your eye appointments, you’ll simply have more time on your hands.
Here are some other things patients say:
“No pain at all, with wonderful results! Why didn’t I get this done sooner?”
“The marks on my nose and behind my ears from my glasses are gone, I feel like a weight has been lifted, and I can see.”
“I can swim in the ocean or pool, and can actually see things!”
