Thinking about undergoing LASIK surgery? Investing in your vision might be the best decision you make all year.

LASIK is the most popular elective medical procedure you can undergo! There are millions of people that have already had LASIK all over the world.

Most LASIK patients end up with 20/20 vision or better! And you won’t need glasses or contacts when you have your vision corrected.

Even better is the fact that LASIK is permanent. That means that you’ll experience crystal clear vision for the rest of your life.

Keep reading to find out more about LASIK and why it’s such a worthy investment!

Quick and Painless

LASIK is a quick and painless procedure. It only takes around 30 minutes to complete.

You won’t feel any pain, either, thanks to numbing eye drops that you’ll receive at the beginning of the procedure. If you’re feeling nervous, you can ask for a sedative like Valium to help you relax and calm down.

Then you will lie awake with your eyes open as a laser reshapes your cornea through a small incision made by your surgeon. In under an hour, you’ll have clearer vision and you’ll have invested in yourself, which is priceless!

LASIK Recovery

After the procedure is over, you’ll need to stay for observation. Once you’re cleared, you can go home.

Because you received numbing eye drops, you can’t drive yourself home after LASIK, so make sure someone can provide you with transportation. You’ll want to take it easy once you get home.

Try not to do anything that can strain your eyes like heavy lifting. This also includes any contact sports.

Don’t get any water in your eyes while showering and avoid all bodies of water. This means you’ll want to nix any swimming for about a month.

Your vision will be blurry for a few days following your LASIK procedure. Most patients go back to work the day after they have LASIK.

At least on the day that you have your procedure, rest your eyes. Listen to audiobooks and podcasts, enjoy some music, but try to refrain from looking at too many screens.

Clear Vision Every Day

After LASIK, you’ll have the clear vision you’ve always wanted, every day. That means no more fumbling around for your glasses first thing in the morning.

No more poking yourself in the eye every morning to put in your contacts. No more expensive prescription sunglasses or keeping up with contact lens supplies.

No more worrying about driving at night without your glasses. Just clear vision from the time you get up in the morning to the time you go to sleep at night.

Enjoy Exercise Again

Trying to exercise with contact lenses or glasses can be a pain. Sweat can cause your glasses to slip off your face or your contacts to slip out of your eye.

Trying to exercise with blurry vision is no fun either, and can be dangerous. LASIK lets you enjoy exercising again with perfect vision.

You don’t have to worry about glasses or contacts slipping. LASIK lets you enjoy a run, swim, bike, or weight workout without thinking about your sight.

Perfect Vision for Life

Having your vision corrected during LASIK is permanent. That means you’ll have clearer and better vision for the rest of your life.

LASIK won’t prevent you from developing conditions like cataracts or glaucoma, as it doesn’t treat future eye conditions. But it does correct refractive errors, meaning you won’t need glasses or contacts!
