If you have worn glasses or contacts your whole life, you know how pesky it can be to spend so much time and energy worrying about your eyes. There are so many times in life where you will have to put in more energy, time and preparation than someone without glasses or contacts, simply because you need to make sure you and your eyes are prepared for any situation at any time. This might mean carrying an extra pair of contacts and contact solution wherever you go should you find yourself stuck in an airport or at a friend’s house longer than expected. It might mean buying multiple pairs of prescription sunglasses to keep in different places like your bag, car and more. It might mean going to an eye doctor much more often than a person without vision correction and perhaps even paying a copay each time, depending on your health insurance. If you are sick and tired of dealing with these extra inconveniences or perhaps would just like to wake up one morning with full vision and no need to fumble around for glasses, you are a great candidate for lasik eye surgery.
A once scary procedure, lasik eye surgery has come a long way in the decades it has been around. While the way a procedure is done can still make some a little squeamish (after all, it is difficult to think about any interference with the eyeball itself), it is painless, quick and has an incredibly fast healing time. While you will not be able to drive immediately after surgery and may experience a little bit of sensitivity, most people report being up and ready to go within just a few days after receiving lasik surgery.
After you have fully healed from lasik surgery, you can say goodbye to all the parts of being a glasses-wearer that brought you stress. Lasik is an initial investment, but will save you money over time because you will no longer need to buy glasses, contacts, contact solution, expensive prescription sunglasses or any other specialty items for your eyes. In addition, you will be prepared for any situation even without a spare pair of glasses. For example, have you ever been in a dark restaurant, squinting at the small print on the menu and lamenting the fact that you did not have glasses with you? Thanks to lasik surgery, you will never have this experience again because your eyes will be able to adjust to the lighting, small print and more. Many who have had eye procedures such as lasik or cataract treatment feel that their life has become easier and more enjoyable after the procedures. If you would like to feel this way too, make an appointment with an eye specialist to discuss you options and learn more about the procedure. In no time, you too, will be on your way to an easier, more enjoyable life without the need for vision correction, expensive accessories and costly doctors appointments.
