Is your current level of sight limiting your quality of life? Do you want the freedom that you can only achieve when you have clear vision? 

Would you like to experience a life that doesn’t need visual aids? That would be a life that’s free of prescription glasses or contact lenses. 

Saying yes to any of these questions means you should consider undergoing LASIK surgery. Keep reading to find out what LASIK and visual freedom can really mean!

Achieve Visual Freedom

LASIK is a life-changing procedure. It can help you achieve visual freedom. 

Your vision is one of the most critical aspects of how you live your life. Relying on prescription eyeglasses and contact lenses is a burden. 

It limits your ability to enjoy and embrace life fully. When you have less than ideal vision, it can restrict how you evaluate your work and play options. 

LASIK eliminates the extra caution and concern that come with less than perfect vision. It’s by having LASIK that you achieve visual freedom.

Increase Your Sense of Self-Confidence

Achieving your visual freedom is about more than seeing clearly. Your vision is deeply rooted in your sense of self-confidence and self-worth. 

How well you can see affects how you see yourself. Many patients prefer the way they look without glasses. 

Contact lenses are not always an option. LASIK increases your vision to a level that does not require any correction. It takes away the burden of glasses and contact lenses. When you can look and feel your best, you’ll also increase your self-confidence.

Permanent Vision Correction

LASIK is a lasting investment that pays dividends for the rest of your life. The vision restoration that you experience after your LASIK surgery is permanent. 

Many people don’t believe that LASIK is permanent, but it is. How? The procedure involves reshaping the cornea. 

This corrects any refractive errors like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. LASIK allows you to achieve visual freedom that won’t falter as you age.

A Smart Financial Investment

Did you know that LASIK is a smart financial investment? Wearing glasses and contact lenses will only drain your financial resources over time. 

Prescriptions need updating along with new lenses and new frames to purchase. These are costly expenses! 

That’s before you factor in necessary lens coatings, including anti-glare, anti-scratch, and blue light blocking coatings to make wearing your glasses as comfortable as possible.

When it comes to contact lenses, most patients put their eye comfort ahead of their wallets. You rely on your contact lenses to correct your vision comfortably. 

You don’t want to feel their presence continually. In the long run, LASIK is a much more cost-effective approach to vision correction.

LASIK Candidacy 

It’s important to note that not all patients are a candidate for LASIK. The procedure corrects your vision by reshaping your cornea. 

Your eyes must be healthy to do this. Your cornea must also be the right thickness since LASIK requires removing a tiny amount of tissue to reshape it. 

Reshaping your cornea requires your cornea to be healthy. It also requires removing a small part of your cornea.
