If you often imagine what life would be like if you didn’t have to wear glasses or contact lenses, then LASIK eye surgery may be an ideal option for you. Waking up to a clear view of the alarm clock, traveling without contact lens solution, and enjoying a day at the beach without having to clean your glasses are just a few of the benefits you will experience after undergoing LASIK.
LASIK eye surgery can help you correct refractive errors in vision such as nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism. The procedure uses a state-of-the-art laser to reshape your cornea so that it focuses light properly. The end result is clearer, sharper vision.
Benefits of LASIK Surgery
Most people who undergo LASIK find it to be a life changing procedure. You will be able to rid yourself of the hassles associated with glasses and contacts once and for all.
One of the greatest lifestyle benefits of LASIK is that you will be able to wear non-prescription sunglasses. You will no longer have to switch back-and-forth between your regular eyeglasses and your prescription sunglasses when going in and out of buildings. LASIK also makes it easier to participate in your favorite athletic activities. Skiing, cycling, swimming, and many other sports are much more enjoyable when you do not have to deal with corrective eyewear.
You may achieve a boost in self-confidence after your LASIK procedure. Many of our LASIK patients comment to us that they no longer feel like their face is hidden behind glasses.
Other benefits of LASIK include:
Extremely high success rate – over 90% of patients achieve their desired vision following LASIK, and many more achieve excellent vision with a simple enhancement procedure
LASIK is virtually pain-free
You will see clearly almost immediately following your LASIK procedure
