5 Things People Love About Their Lives After LASIK

Posted by: Missouri Eye Institute in Blog on February 13, 2024

Considering LASIK surgery to improve your vision? Many individuals who have undergone LASIK have reported substantial improvements in their quality of life. 

Here are the top 5 things that LASIK patients love about their lives after LASIK:

1. Enhanced vision (obviously)
One of the main reasons for choosing LASIK is to augment your eyesight. Following the procedure, many patients experience a remarkable improvement in their vision, often achieving 20/20 vision or better. This newfound clarity enables them to see the world with significantly sharper visual acuity.

“The eye surgeon was quick and efficient, and the procedure was painless–I wish I could have had it done years ago! My vision is now 20-20!” – J.M.

2. Independence from glasses and contacts
Say goodbye to the constraints of glasses and contacts. The goal of LASIK is for patients to longer worry about misplacing their glasses or dealing with discomfort from wearing contacts. Many patients value the freedom that comes with clear vision without the aid of corrective lenses.

“I have been in contacts and glasses since a very young age and have wanted LASIK for a while. Missouri Eye Institute answered every single question I had and gave me a very easy list to follow for post-op. The surgery was super simple and completely painless! I instantly could see the world with perfect vision and it is absolutely the best thing ever. I will forever recommend them and couldn’t thank them enough for helping me with my eyes!😁” – T.S.

3. Active lifestyle
Wearing glasses or contacts can hinder living an active lifestyle for many individuals. Following LASIK, patients can engage in activities like swimming, hiking and contact sports without the constraints or risks associated with corrective eyewear.

“The actual procedure was so quick! I was able to see clearly immediately. I wore glasses/contacts since I was 12. My only regret was not getting this done sooner!” – K.K.

4. Financial savings
Over time, the expenses of acquiring and maintaining glasses and contacts can add up. LASIK provides a long-term solution that can result in substantial financial savings for many patients.

“I have eagle eyes, and I’m done spending money on glasses and contacts every month! Great people, too!” – L.J.

For instance, an average person spends around $200-$600 on prescription eyeglasses and approximately $700-$1,200 on contact lenses yearly. On the other hand, the one-time investment in LASIK surgery typically ranges from $2,000 to $3,000 per eye. Imagine how much a 20-something will save on eyewear by the time they hit 60.

5. Ongoing care with Missouri Eye Institute

It starts from the moment you visit for your initial eye exam and LASIK consultation until well after LASIK surgery—and years down the line when cataracts or AMD become concerns.

“Dr. Osborn did my LASIK surgery and I am seeing great! The surgery did not last long and I was completely comfortable. I am glad I decided to go ahead with LASIK and be glasses free!!!” – J.A.

LASIK has brought life-altering benefits to numerous patients. From improved vision to the convenience of not relying on glasses or contacts, LASIK has provided a new perspective for those who have undergone the procedure.
