Return To Blog

Are you tired of feeling like glasses and contacts hold you back? Does it seem like visual aids do nothing but cause you frustration?

If you’re a good candidate, LASIK is truly a life-altering procedure. When you get LASIK, there’s an excellent chance you could end up with 20/20 vision or better, eliminating the need for contact lenses or glasses.

But attaining visual freedom isn’t the only way that having LASIK can change your life. It may surprise you to find out how many avenues of your life could improve when you get LASIK. Keep reading to learn about 4 ways you never knew LASIK could change your life!

1. Save Time

If you wear contact lenses, you know the struggle that comes with putting them in and taking them out every night. When you’re first getting used to contacts, this can take a while.

But even when you get used to the routine and hardly think about it anymore, you’re still using up a lot of time. It may just be a few minutes every day, but that time adds up.

Even the most experienced contact lens wearer can accidentally put in one inside out, taking ten to twenty minutes to fix their mistake. Who has that kind of time?

There are also times when losing a contact lens can derail your whole day. If you’re out and about when it happens, you can waste an hour figuring out where the lens went or having to find a replacement.

You’re also using precious time disinfecting your contact if you find it or replace it. Think of all the minutes you’ve spent in these similar situations that you’ll never get back.

To keep your eyes healthy, you also need to make sure you wash your hands before you put in or take out your contacts. The temptation may be there to cut corners with your contact lenses, but it’s a bad idea.

At best, wearing contacts can cost precious minutes every day. At worst, they can offset your entire schedule.

Either way, LASIK surgery will save you time. You can streamline your morning and evening routine and never have to worry about losing a contact lens again. Instead, you can wake up with the crystal clear vision you only dreamed of before!

2. Save Money

Is your everyday eye care routine affordable? What you may not realize is that, on average, you’re spending $500 every year on glasses, contact lenses, and their necessary accessories.

Now, think about having more money in your pocket because you got LASIK. It might not make sense at first, but it’s true.

When you choose a permanent vision correction procedure like LASIK, you no longer have to pay $500 every year for visual aids. LASIK is a one-time up-front cost that you can even use a flexible payment plan to cover.

There’s no reason why something like cost should stand in your way of having LASIK. You can easily fit this procedure into your budget with low monthly payments without breaking the bank.

Most people who get LASIK can pay off the procedure in two years. After that, you own your new vision for good.

Consider what you could do if you had more money to spend on what you wanted. It would make a difference!

When you get LASIK, you’re investing in yourself and your vision. You’ll be able to look forward to decades of incredible vision that will change your view of the world around you.

3. Make Everyday Life Easier

Not only can LASIK save you time, but it can also save you energy. Visual freedom means you no longer have to worry about wearing contact lenses or glasses.

It might seem like a minor change, but you’ll no longer have to deal with all the little ways glasses and contacts make your life harder.

Take cooking, for example. How much easier would it be to cook without having your glasses fog up every time you take the lid off a pot?

Wouldn’t you rather chop onions without thinking about how much they’ll irritate your contact lenses? You can complete even the most mundane everyday chores faster and with fewer hassles when you don’t have anything hindering your vision.

It goes beyond chores and housework, though. You can have more fun and be adventurous without worrying about your visual aids. Say goodbye to switching to glasses during a late night out to avoid irritation from your contacts.

It will become a thing of the past after having LASIK! Every area of your life can improve with the visual freedom you get from LASIK surgery.

4. Motivate Yourself

When you save time, money, and energy, every part of your life will follow. Having more time to yourself every day means you can make breakfast or sleep in and be more well-rested.

You can also finally start the workout routine you’ve been thinking about but never followed through to be more active. It’s a lot harder to be physically active when you wear contacts or glasses.

But after you get LASIK, not only will you not need any visual aids, but you’ll be able to see even better! After getting LASIK, patients have improved depth, color perception, and reaction times.

If you play a sport, even if it’s just for fun, you can improve your game by getting LASIK! You’ll be able to see everything coming at you, no matter what.

LASIK can also boost your confidence, allowing you to look the way you want without putting up with discomfort from contact lenses. You can be bold and further your career and personal life with more confidence.
