If you are considering LASIK, your mind is most likely an ocean of questions right now. This is only natural, of course, as is deciding to move forward with any type of surgical procedure.

Keep reading for facts about LASIK to help you figure out if it’s right for you!

LASIK vs. Glasses and Contact Lenses

The first thing that makes people nervous about LASIK is usually the cost. People considering LASIK have a difficult time separating the cost from the investment.

But here’s something that sets LASIK apart: it’s a one time cost. When you wear glasses and contacts, you’re paying each time. Both things need replacing, especially contact lenses.

Did you know that on average, most people are spending at least $500 per year on contact lenses? With LASIK, you’re paying one cost.

In fact, when you get LASIK, after a few years, it even starts paying for itself! This is because you no longer have to pay $500 a year (or more) to keep up your glasses and contacts.

And if the up-front cost of LASIK seems like too much to handle, you can look into financing. Here at Stahl Eyecare Experts, we want all our patients to experience clear vision. Your budget shouldn’t stand in your way of LASIK and freedom from glasses and contacts!

There’s nothing like waking up every morning and having clear, crisp vision.

LASIK: A Permanent Solution

When you put on your glasses or contacts to correct your sight, it’s temporary. You’re only able to see until your glasses come off, or in the case of contact lenses, out.

As a contact lens wearer, you’ve likely run into situations where they get in your way of fun. Have you been at the beach and gotten sand in your eye that scratched your contact?

Or did you go for a brisk run and then end up in pain because your contact dried out? Contact lenses are great because they are invisible but they also have their limits.

There’s no reason to be stuck with contacts if you’re considering the visual freedom of LASIK. LASIK is not right for everyone so you should schedule a LASIK consultation first! This allows you to know if you’re a candidate and right for the procedure.

LASIK: Freedom from Corrective Lenses

We all know that eyeglasses and contact lenses come with more than a few annoyances built in to the mix. LASIK frees you from having to deal with:

  • Raindrops and steamed-up lenses during inclement weather
  • Fingerprints on smudges on lenses
  • Lost glasses and torn contacts

It’s about a lot of the little things you never even think about! Do you want to get married and deal with contact lenses on your special day?

Are you frustrated by how dry your eyes are when you take your contacts out? Is wearing glasses and the same frames everyday cramping your style?

Whatever your reasons, LASIK can be an amazing choice!
