Christmas is the season of giving, and what better gift to give someone you love than the gift of clear vision? Better eyesight contributes to a better quality of life and helps create memories to last a lifetime.
LASIK surgery is a thoughtful gift idea that shows you care about your loved one’s health and well-being. It’s a safe and effective procedure that can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.
Under the right circumstances and for the right candidate, LASIK can be a practical gift your loved one will appreciate every day. Here are some things to consider:
Why give LASIK as a gift?
There are many reasons LASIK is a great gift idea, but here are our top three:
First, LASIK is a gift that will make a real difference in your loved one’s life. If they’re currently wearing glasses or contact lenses, LASIK can free them from the hassle of dealing with those things daily. They’ll be able to see clearly without worrying about their glasses getting dirty or their contact lenses slipping out of place—or losing their eyewear entirely.
Second, LASIK is a gift that will keep on giving. Once your loved one has LASIK, they’ll be able to enjoy clear vision for many years to come. They’ll be able to participate in activities that they may have been avoiding, such as swimming, playing sports or simply going out on the town without having to worry about their glasses or contact lenses.
Third, LASIK is a relatively affordable gift. There are many financing options available, so you can make the gift of LASIK work for your budget. Plus, LASIK can save many thousands of dollars in eyewear over a lifetime.
How to give the gift of LASIK
If you’re thinking about giving LASIK as a gift, there are a few things you need to do.
Talk to your loved one about LASIK. Make sure they’re interested in getting LASIK and that they’re a good candidate for the procedure.
Find a reputable LASIK surgeon. Ask your friends, family, and regular eye doctor for recommendations. You can also search online for LASIK surgeons in your area with lots of 5-star reviews.
Schedule a consultation for your loved one. The consultation will give the surgeon a chance to examine your loved one’s eyes and confirm that they’re a good candidate for LASIK.
If your loved one is a good candidate for LASIK, you can help them plan the surgery and be there for them during and after surgery. LASIK surgeries are outpatient procedures, so your loved one will be able to go home the same day. However, they will need a ride home from surgery. Consider serving as their driver as part of your precious gift.
