The 5 Biggest Benefits of LASIK Eye Surgery

24 Mar 2015

LASIK, a form of laser eye surgery, offers numerous benefits to those who opt for it. Whether you have worn glasses your entire life or only the past few years, there are a few strong reasons to consider this innovative procedure.

Benefits of LASIK

If you have specific questions about how LASIK can improve your eyesight, you will want to meet with a surgeon for a consultation. Some of the benefits of this procedure include:

Better Vision

Studies have shown how effective LASIK can be. It was estimated that 95 percent of those who undergo the procedure achieved a visual acuity of 20/40, while 85 percent returned to 20/20 vision. Regardless of which acuity you achieve, you will have a dramatic improvement in your vision.

Long-Term Results

LASIK takes a few months in total to adjust your vision, but once your eyes do adjust, the results should be permanent. The only time a patient requires a follow-up laser eye surgery is when their eyesight changes slightly with age.

Faster Results and Recovery

While you cannot drive home after your laser eye surgery appointment, most patients return to their normal lifestyle and schedule within as little as 24 hours.

No More Contacts or Eyeglasses

The cost of eyeglasses and annual cost of contacts is astounding. While laser eye surgery does come with a significant upfront cost, overtime, it will save you hundreds of dollars each year on corrective eyewear. In addition, it will also save you the hassle of having to wear glasses or contacts to drive, read and just enjoy life.

No Stitches or Bandages

You do not have to worry about excessive aftercare procedures and you will not have bandages or stitches to deal with while you recover.

LASIK is a procedure that gives you back your vision and freedom. No need to plan your vacations around your eyewear or worry about taking a dip in the ocean without rushing to remove your contacts.

If you are thinking about correcting your vision permanently, schedule a consultation with Optilase surgeons and see if you are a candidate for LASIK.
