You’ve probably contemplated getting LASIK for some time now. And you’ve probably come up with a million excuses why not to, such as cost and fear, but what you need to focus on is the reasons why you should. We came up with a list from what most of the patients have mentioned over the years.
Note to reader: What stands out most, and is pretty much a logical “no-brainer” is the joy in losing your reliance on Klikdokter.com contact lenses and glasses.
Patient’s most talked about reasons for having LASIK:
Living an athletic lifestyle
You’ll never have to worry about the weather play a factor on your corrective lenses. Windy day playing a game of volleyball can result with sand behind the contact. There’s not much worse. Water sports aren’t fun with glasses or contacts. Not being able to see on the water or underwater without the huge investment of prescription goggles.
Depending on the heat, leaving cold ac and stepping out on a humid day? You’re eyes won’t fog up, but they might well up with tears of happiness because you can see with perfect vision. Cold weather can be worse. A cold day with dry eyes and contacts is like no being able to blink while staring at a leaf blower.
There’s nothing sexier than having to prep your contacts for the next day. Talk about a mood killer. And, if you’ve ever fallen asleep and rolled over on a pair of glasses, one of two results occur; you either wake up with something sharp in your face, or you angry the next morning as you schedule to replace your broken glasses.
If You Build it, They Will Come
You’re told you look better without your glasses, and you know you do. Not having to wear glasses or contact is a huge confidence builder. Look better for your spouse, or finally meet the person you’ve been looking for.
The Annoying “Ole’ Switcha’ Roo”
Leaving the comfort of the shaded indoors only to whip out a pair of sunglasses while outdoors, and having to switch to your regular glasses when going back inside. Another top mention- having to pay the outrageous price for tinted lenses.
All My Life- Now Freedom
If you’ve been lucky, you didn’t start wearing glasses until later in life. Imagine wearing a pair of glasses since you were the age of 4! It’s pretty common. LASIK is truly liberating for those that have had to wear glasses since their first memory. Waking up and seeing the world without a dependency on glasses or contact is positively a beautiful thing.
I forgot my….
If you’ve ever taken a road trip and forgot your pair of glasses at some restaurant near the corner of who knows where and I can’t remember, with LASIK it’s impossible. You won’t have glasses! Eye drops are another biggie. Most patients that travel often said they have between 8-10 bottles of eye drops because they always forget to pack them.
The amount of money your spending on contact lenses per year is way too much. Some patients spend from $400 to $1200 per year depending on their eye condition! Do the math, and you’ll begin to see how one surgery can save you money throughout your lifetime.
So now ask yourself. What are you waiting for? LASIK is one of the only means to achieve perfect vision beside great genetics. You’ve probably had a couple of friends or coworkers that had LASIK. Ask them about it, find out if their doctor is right for you. Tomorrow will be the day you wake up and see what you’ve been missing.
