Tax day in 2021 is May 17, a date that is quickly drawing near. If you have not received and spent your refund already, you may want to consider using it to improve your life quality.
LASIK vision correction can improve your vision and help you eliminate the burden of glasses or contact lenses. Keep reading to see why LASIK might be the best way to use your tax refund in 2021.
The Cosmetic Benefits of LASIK
LASIK provides several benefits that can last a lifetime. First of all, there is the obvious cosmetic value of LASIK.
Many people don’t like the way they look with glasses. Even if you do like how you look in glasses, having no option but to wear them takes away any choice you have in the matter.
In this way, LASIK gives you a kind of freedom that you can’t achieve otherwise.
You could, of course, get contacts if all you care about is the cosmetic aspect of vision. But contact lenses have their own set of problems.
For example, they can be irritating if left in too long, and they require constant care and replacement. This can take a toll not only on your patience but also on your wallet.
LASIK Can Save You Money
While LASIK is not inexpensive by any metric, it is a one-time cost. The sooner you get it, the more money you can save in the long run.
Most people average about $500 a year out of pocket costs for glasses and contacts. Think about how much money $500 a year is for the rest of your life. You can start keeping that $500 per year the day you undergo LASIK by not having to spend it on contacts and glasses.
LASIK Can Make Your Life Even Better
LASIK can also give you the ability to do things you already do in a way that was not possible with glasses or contacts.
For example, swimming is an activity enjoyed by most people. Even people with contacts or glasses enjoy swimming despite the burden of their visual aids.
But not having to worry about losing your glasses or damaging your contacts makes swimming even more enjoyable. There’s no denying that swimming is more leisurely and more fun when you can see without your visual aids.
Sports are another great example. Many people love playing them, even people who need glasses to see.
But people whose glasses are not holding them back have a competitive edge. That is why many pro athletes have elected to undergo a vision correction procedure.
No matter what you love to do, you’re freer, and it’s more fun when you can do it without glasses and contacts.
LASIK is a Solid Investment
Using your tax refund on LASIK is a good investment because of how proven it is. Millions of people have received the treatment, and it has a 96% satisfaction rate.
There is indeed some risk involved with getting LASIK. There’s some risk with all medical procedures. But over 90% of people who get LASIK achieve perfect 20/20 vision or better.
And recent research says that more than 99% of LASIK patients end up with eyesight of at least 20/40. That is excellent vision.
There aren’t many investments that are as likely to work out as LASIK. Schedule a LASIK consultation at Stahl Eyecare Experts in Garden City, NY, to see if LASIK is right for you!
