Declare Your Independence from Prescription Lenses

Posted by: Missouri Eye Institute in Blog on July 3, 2023

America’s birthday brings into sharp focus all the freedoms we have to be grateful for. And, there is perhaps no freedom greater than the freedom that comes with healthy vision.

If you’re having trouble seeing by the dawn’s early light or through the night, you’ll reap distinct advantages by restoring your eyes to their “old glory.” Read on for 4 reasons you should declare your independence from prescription eyeglasses and contact lenses.

  1. Take in more splendor.

We absorb so much amazing data through our eyes! They work in concert to read historic documents, gaze upon national monuments and bask in the grandeur of our country’s natural wonders, then make sense of it all. 

After LASIK, you won’t struggle to focus on everything that makes you proud of America the beautiful.

  1. Pristine performance in America’s pastime.

Better vision improves hand-eye coordination, giving you more bat-to-ball and glove-to-ball contact on the baseball field. Even better if you can achieve sharp eyesight with glasses or contact lenses, which can interfere with play.

After LASIK, you can more quickly and accurately assess the action around you and respond accordingly. Both professional and amateur athletes report improvements in their game after LASIK, as well as less game disruption from slipped, damaged or contaminated lenses. In the stands watching the game? LASIK can benefit you there, too!

  1. Rule the road.

Are you missing those national parks exits? Having trouble reading your maps? Or are nighttime halos and starbursts making your late trips unsafe? When you’re touring the great U.S. of A., you don’t want to miss a thing—and you don’t want accidents on vacation either.

After LASIK, you’ll clearly see vital traffic signs and respond more quickly to driving conditions. Both you and your GPS can navigate the nation nimbly.

  1. Free up funds for your next trip.

The expense of prescription eyeglasses and contact lenses will linger long after your current travels are paid for. What if you could retire vision correction costs and put that cash toward your next American adventure?

After LASIK, your vision correction procedure could be paid in full before you book your next flight and hotel, saving you many thousands of dollars over the years. With that money savings, you could marvel at many mountains and prairies and oceans white with foam.
