­New Year, New You! Give Yourself the Gift of LASIK

The new year is here, and most likely, so are your resolutions: improve health, become more active, eat better; declutter. There may be no better way to gain some clarity and help yourself maintain those goals than the gift of LASIK!

LASIK (laser in-situ Keratomileusis) eye surgery certainly has a high return on investment. It is the most common way to correct refractive vision issues like myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism. With LASIK, you’ll notice an immediate, dramatic improvement in your vision, and more than 80 percent of patients ultimately achieve 20/20 visual acuity for the long term. Though the eyes may take a few months to fully adjust, LASIK has a high success rate, and the results are usually permanent.

LASIK is convenient, recovery is quick, and the entire process takes about 30 minutes. During the procedure, your surgeon will place numbing drops in your eye and use a special instrument to keep your eyes open. He or she will then use a small blade or laser to cut a tiny hinged flap away from your eye, which will allow access to your corneas for reshaping. With absolute precision using a programmed laser, parts of your corneas will be reshaped, and thereafter the flaps will be laid back into place. The procedure is virtually painless, no bandages or stitches are required, and you can resume normal activity within 24 hours.

Though LASIK requires an up-front investment, you’ll most likely no longer need to use corrective eyewear (e.g., contact lenses or eye glasses), which will save you hundreds of dollars a year and thousands over time. More than that, you’ll be hassle-free: no more glasses or contact lenses needed during any and all activities! No more worrying about eyewear while hiking, biking, swimming, or vacationing. 

Of course, ditching your eyeglasses and contacts will give you an added confidence boost. LASIK will give you back your freedom – you’ll have one less (huge) thing to worry about!
