LASIK eye surgery is a great choice for anyone who wants to stop wearing glasses or contacts. However, many patients do not realize the true benefits of LASIK and how it can transform their life until after the surgery. Being able to roll out of bed and see without putting on glasses or inserting contact lenses is just one benefit. Here are some other ways in which LASIK can change your life for the better.
1. You won't have to keep buying glasses or contacts.
Many health insurance plans do not fully cover the cost of glasses or contacts, which means you need to pay for them at least partially out-of-pocket. These costs can add up over time. Even if you can afford glasses or contacts, there are probably other things you would rather spend that money on. After you have LASIK and no longer need these visual devices, you can save that money for a vacation, a new pair of boots, or whatever else you're craving.
2. You'll be able to see in the rain.
If you wear glasses in the rain, they get wet, which makes it hard to see. If you wear contacts in the rain and get water in your eye, it dries out contacts out, which is uncomfortable. After having LASIK surgery, you won't have to worry about any of this. You can be outside in a rainstorm without any worries.
3. You won't forget or lose your visual devices anywhere.
Have you ever left your glasses on a desk in a meeting room? Have you ever left your contact case at home when you planned on spending the night at a friend's house? Keeping track of your visual devices can be quite annoying, especially when you forget them somewhere. After LASIK surgery, this won't be a problem. You can cross "contact case" off your packing list forever.
4. You won't have an increased risk of eye infection.
People who wear glasses don't really need to worry about eye infections, but contact lens wearers do need to be concerned. Some infections can be pretty serious. But as soon as you get LASIK, you won't have to wear contacts anymore, and your risk of infection will go way down. You'll be safer and healthier.
LASIK can make your life better. Contact an ocular surgeon near you to learn more about the procedure and to schedule a consultation for LASIK surgery.
During my first pregnancy, I spent a lot of time pushing pillows behind my back trying to find comfort. As the size of the baby grew, so did my discomfort. By the time she was born, I was more than ready to give birth. When I found out I was pregnant again, I was determined that I would not suffer through the same discomforts. I started researching ways to ease the symptoms of pregnancy, including back pain. I created this blog to help other expectant moms find remedies to deal with those symptoms that can be emotionally and physically draining.
