Is LASIK Really Worth It?

There are countless people out there who have considered undergoing LASIK surgery, but more often than not have one big question plague their decision. Is it really worth it?  For those with significantly poor vision that rely heavily on corrective lenses, the decision is often much more simple. But for those that simply struggle while driving or reading a book tend to be a bit more torn on the subject.

What these people may not realize is that LASIK is often much more successful in correcting minor vision problems, often to a perfect 20/20. Still that question of cost vs. benefits linger in the minds of many potential candidates.

At Envision Eye Care we want to help those on the fence become better educated in making their decision. To that end, here are a few things to consider and some of the benefits that come with LASIK.

Clearer Vision

The first benefit is the most obvious. Undergoing LASIK allows for much clearer vision without the need for glasses or contacts. No more waking up to a blurry alarm clock or squinting to read road signs. LASIK allows you to see the world the way that it was meant to be seen.

Comfort and Freedom
LASIK also provides more freedom to those currently using corrective lenses. You can be free to jump into the pool or wear snow or other sporting goggles with absolute comfort and without any worry. And for the thousands out there that are uncomfortable with their appearance in glasses, that worry becomes a thing of the past!

Long-Term Cost Savings
When most people think of LASIK, they think of the financial cost of the surgery. What many fail to realize, however, is that undergoing LASIK can actually help you to save hundreds if not thousands of dollars over the course of your life! Gone are the days of losing your glasses between the couch cushions or at a hotel. No more having to buy daily contacts, contact cases, solution. For many of us, this can often come out to save you well more than the cost of LASIK in the long run. And when you combine these savings with the many different payment plans available, LASIK quickly becomes more affordable than you ever thought possible.

Of course, this is a very basic list of the many benefits that come with undergoing LASIK. If you are interested in learning more about the procedure or to book your initial consultation, contact Envision Eye Care today!
