A lifetime of wearing contact lenses or glasses isn’t just a time investment—it also adds up to a significant financial investment. However, if your vision is less than 20/20, you may feel that corrective lenses are necessary for you to see the world. Luckily, there is another way for you to see clearly without the hassle of glasses or contacts: LASIK eye surgery. Continue reading to learn if you should be considering LASIK surgery.
- You Wear Contact Lenses or Eyeglasses
Having to look after and wear your eyeglasses or spending several minutes each day caring for your contact lenses is necessary if you have poor vision. Skipping corrective eyewear is not really an option if you want to continue driving and working normally. If the time and money you spend correcting your vision is becoming a hassle, LASIK is a great solution to consider. You’ll never have to buy another bottle of contact lens cleaner, deal with a ripped contact lens or look for your glasses in the morning.Best of all, you won’t have to worry about looking after another pair of glasses until you need them for reading after your mid-40’s.
- You’re Active and Busy
LASIK is the perfect vision correction solution for the active, busy adult. The procedure takes only a few minutes per eye, and the recovery period is short. You should immediately notice some improvement after your procedure, and your vision will continue to improve as you heal. After your eyes have healed, you can play sports, exercise, and do any other active pursuits without worrying about losing a contact lens or breaking your glasses.
- You Are in Good Health
In order to be a good candidate for LASIK, you do need to have healthy eyes that have finished maturing. This generally means that you should wait until at least the age of 18 to undergo LASIK surgery. You should also be free of any medical conditions that may put you at risk when undergoing eye surgery, like glaucoma or herpes of the eye (Herpes Simplex or Herpes Zoster).
