3 Reasons To Consider LASIK Over Wearing Contacts

Share on Social Media

Considering getting LASIK? There’s a reason why millions of people choose to have this life-changing procedure every year!

You won’t regret it, especially if you wear contact lenses. Most patients that have LASIK end up with 20/20 vision or better!

If you wear contacts on a daily basis, this is a huge step up from needing them. And that’s only part of the benefits of LASIK over contact lenses.

Keep reading for 3 reasons to consider LASIK over wearing contacts!

1. LASIK Lets You Get Ready Faster

Getting up and ready for your day in the morning can be a challenge. Sometimes all you want to do is to keep hitting the snooze button while you roll back over and get another hour of sleep.

If you have kids, that means you have to get them ready on top of your own frenzied morning routine. LASIK makes getting ready a little less challenging because as soon as you wake up, you can see clearly.

No more poking yourself in the eye each morning as you put in your contacts or scrambling because you put your contacts in backward. We’ve all done it!

You can just wake and up and get your morning routine done, no matter what that might be.

2. LASIK is Less Expensive in the Long Run

Contact lenses can add up and be expensive to buy over time. This is especially true if you wear contacts every day. Think about how much you spend on contact lenses over the course of six months or annually.

Now consider that on average, most people spend at least $500 every year on glasses, contacts, contact lens solution, and the accessories that go along with these things. That adds up to a lot of money over time!

The thing with LASIK is it’s a one-time cost. Even if you do decide to finance your procedure and pay for it over time, most patients pay off their procedure after two years.

That means that after two years, your LASIK procedure is completely paid off, and you no longer need to pay for contact lenses. What would you do with the extra money that LASIK could afford you?

3. LASIK is Permanent and Safe

Don’t you hate it when you’re out and about and your contact lens slips out of your eye? Have you ever been on a run or a bike ride and your contact ends up somewhere it shouldn’t be or irritates your eye?

This can be dangerous if you’re not near your contacts or have a pair of glasses handy. You might not be able to see well enough to drive home or continue your workday. If you wear monthly contacts then this could even become costly.

LASIK won’t slip out of your eye. Instead, it’s a permanent procedure. It’s also safer than having to worry about what your contact lenses could do while you’re being physically active.

Having LASIK once will result in decades of crystal clear vision and visual freedom. It’s never been safer to have LASIK than right now, thanks to state-of-the-art technology and research.

Am I a LASIK Candidate?

It is important to note that not everyone is a candidate for LASIK. The procedure requires that you don’t have certain eye conditions like dry eye syndrome.

You will also need to have a healthy cornea that is at least .5mm thick. Your eye doctor can help determine if you are a LASIK candidate.

Are you ready to leave contact lenses behind you? The first step is a LASIK consultation. Schedule your LASIK consultation today with Stahl Eyecare Experts in Garden City, NY!
