5 Reasons You Should Get LASIK This Summer
For the millions of people who suffer from the three most common vision problems — myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism (blurry vision) — LASIK surgery offers a fast, effective, and safe corrective option. King LASIK’s team of highly skilled surgeons and experienced staff has performed more than 85,000 laser eye surgery procedures, and uses the latest diagnostic and surgical techniques to ensure patient safety.

Here are 5 Great Reasons to Consider Having LASIK this Summer:

  • LASIK is quick and virtually painless; the procedure only takes about 15 minutes for each eye. King LASIK surgeons use a topical anesthetic to ensure patient comfort. Some patients experience a bit of pressure with the procedure. Recovery time typically takes 24 to 48 hours and patients can drive the next day after the procedure.
  • If you wear contact lenses or glasses, you will save a considerable amount over time by not having to buy new products. While the initial cost of LASIK may be higher than buying glasses or contacts, having to renew prescriptions and buy new glasses once or twice a year can exceed the cost of LASIK. Learn more about contacts vs. LASIK.
  • LASIK is a safer option than contact lenses. With contacts, you are introducing a foreign piece of plastic into the eye that over time presents a risk of permanent damage. The risk of vision-threatening infection with contact lenses is 1:2,000 wearers versus 1:10,000 for LASIK patients.
  • Getting LASIK gives the gift of everyday convenience. After LASIK, you can perform simple tasks like checking an alarm clock, reading a menu in dim light or checking instructions for medications without fumbling for your glasses. If you are an athlete, the days of fogged glasses are over after LASIK.
  • LASIK can reduce allergy symptoms or at least make them more bearable. Having to endure allergies is bad enough, especially if you continually rub your eyes with contact lenses. LASIK can alleviate allergy and chronic headache symptoms and make summer more enjoyable.
