Playing into the February theme of Valentine's Day, this post could be a fun opportunity to highlight a few of the things that patients enjoy most about LASIK. We could pull a couple excerpts from quotes from real patients from the site to include, and try to think outside the box to mention positive results people might not think of.

LASIK eye surgery is a safe, cost-effective way to fix your vision and enjoy improvements to your lifestyle, too. If you’re a candidate for the procedure and looking for LASIK in Phoenix, we’d love to schedule a consultation for you. Still on the fence about whether or not to explore this option? Here are a few of the LASIK benefits that our own patients have loved most about going through with the surgery.

1. Incredible Vision

This might be obvious, but it’s worth repeating. Patients who get LASIK are thrilled by the visual acuity and clarity of their vision afterward. If you dream of having 20/20 vision (or better), LASIK may just be the best way for you to get it.

2. Convenience

While glasses and contacts offer relatively easy vision correction, they’re not without hassles. Most people dislike having to clean their glasses lens regularly, or messing with contact solution. This adds time to their bedtime and morning routines, and makes everything a little less convenient.

Take it from Sara, one of our actual LASIK patients who said this: “After having LASIK, my vision is perfect as soon as I wake up. It’s been amazing not having to deal with the hassle of contacts and glasses anymore. Now when I travel, it’s just one less thing to worry about.”

3. Freedom

Along the same lines of convenience is the way in which LASIK frees patients up to do more of what they want in life. If you’re a glasses-wearer, for instance, something like snorkeling becomes a tricky prospect. After LASIK? You can snorkel anytime, anywhere. Or, if you’re especially active and love to dance or practice yoga, glasses can get in the way. LASIK solves this problem, too. Even if you wear contacts, which offer more flexibility than glasses, you still may not be able to participate in everything you want to (e.g. you’re not supposed to wear them swimming or to keep them on your eyes for too long).

Glasses and contacts can be the source of unnecessary irritation, also. If you’re somewhere that you have to wear a face mask, for instance, your glasses are likely to fog up, which can be a major annoyance. If you suffer from eye allergies, wearing contacts can just exacerbate the problem, leaving you with even more itchy, red, watery eyes. The bottom line? The best way to have freedom to do what you want without aggravation is to get LASIK.

4. Cheaper Eye Appointments

After LASIK, you should still get your eyes checked every year. But, LASIK patients love that their eye doctor visits are much less expensive than before. Without paying for new glasses or contacts, contact solution, contact lens fittings and eyeglasses fittings, your eye exam bill will be a pleasant surprise.
