Are you thinking about getting LASIK? Can you imagine life without needing glasses or contacts?

Deciding to get LASIK surgery is life-changing. LASIK can treat nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Keep reading to learn more about some of the different ways that life changes after LASIK!

You Don’t Need Glasses or Contacts

One of the most anticipated changes after LASIK is that most patients don’t need glasses or contacts. Say goodbye to the days of needing to remember to order contacts or getting contact solution.

No more putting your finger in your eye or looking around for a lost contact! Plus you no longer have to worry about forgetting or breaking your glasses.

Military personnel need strong vision, and not needing glasses/ contacts makes things simpler. Glasses or contacts complicate tasks.

Soldiers abroad may not have access to eye doctors, contacts or replacement glasses. Some of these duties are life-saving and they aren’t able to perform it with the ability to clearly see.

This issue impacts police, fire and rescue personnel as well.

You’ll Quickly See Results

Patients will quickly see the results of LASIK eye surgery. Post-LASIK, patients will start to notice changes in their vision within a few hours.

Your vision is usually better within 24 hours. Most patients can start performing normal daily activities within 48 hours post-surgery.

LASIK Improves Your Vision

LASIK will improve your vision. The majority of patients have the ability to get 20/20 or 20/25 vision or even better post-LASIK surgery.

No matter the exact result of vision after LASIK, most patients don’t need glasses or contacts.

The results from LASIK are related to your vision before surgery. Some patients do experience under corrected vision post-surgery. In this situation, patients will need another surgery to correct their vision.

Some patients do experience their vision returning to pre-surgery levels. This happens due to a variety of conditions and diseases. You should contact your doctor if this happens.

Take Part in More Activities

After LASIK, patients can take part in difficult activities with glasses or contacts. Needing to wear glasses while playing a sport can be challenging and stressful.

You do not want to break your glasses, need to buy new ones, or wear uncomfortable activity goggles. Getting LASIK eliminates these barriers.

LASIK lets you play sports or take part in activities exactly how you want to.

LASIK Can Save You Money

Patients who get LASIK surgery will save money over time. While LASIK does cost a lot upfront, soon enough the cost will pay for itself.

This is because you do not have to pay for contacts, glasses, solution or eye doctor appointments. Eliminating these costs will cover the cost of LASIK and save you money in the future.

Fewer Allergy Symptoms

Getting LASIK means fewer symptoms for patients with allergies. When you wear contacts, you often touch your eyes.

You need to insert them, remove them, and adjust them during the day. If you have bad allergies and touch your eyes a lot, you are transferring pollen from your fingers to your eyes.

This is making your allergies worse! Getting LASIK will remove the need to touch your eyes.
