Reasons You Should Consider LASIK in 2018
The beginning of a new year is a special time for many people as they make their resolutions and prepare for the year ahead. If one of your resolutions is to start taking better care of yourself, perhaps you could start with your vision.
LASIK has improved the vision and quality of life for millions of people worldwide. Here are four reasons you should consider LASIK in 2018:
1. A fast and simple procedure
LASIK is a fairly quick and simple procedure with the actual surgery itself taking roughly 20 minutes. Anesthesia isn’t necessary during the surgery but instead, your doctor will give you eye drops to number your eyes.
You shouldn’t experience any pain although you may feel some pressure. And once the surgery is over, you are free to recover in the comfort of your own home.
2. The recovery time is short
Many people avoid having surgery because they are afraid of being stuck on the couch for weeks recovering. Fortunately, this will not be the case with LASIK.
Immediately after the procedure, your vision may be blurry but most people find it starts to improve within a couple days. It may take several months for your eyes to fully adjust but you should start to feel better almost immediately.
3. Enjoy an easier travel experience
Let’s face it, traveling with glasses or contacts can seriously cramp your style. Is there anything more annoying than driving around looking for a pharmacy because you realize you left your contact solution at home? LASIK will allow you to fully enjoy all the activities your vacation has to offer.
4. Make spending time outside more enjoyable
Playing sports, going for a walk through the neighborhood, and enjoying outdoor barbecues with friends are more enjoyable without contacts. Many patients discover that their allergy symptoms even improve as a result of having LASIK.
