Are you ready to get rid of your glasses once and for all? LASIK could be your solution.

But did you go to your eye doctor and discover that LASIK is an elective procedure? Did you learn that your health insurance may not cover it? 

Are you unsure how you’ll pay for it? Keep reading to find out if you could use your tax return to pay for LASIK!

Your Tax Return Could Come Just In Time

Have you considered using your tax refund to cover the procedure? Depending on how much you get back, your tax refund may cover most of, if not the entire, cost of LASIK.

LASIK is a great investment in yourself and your self-confidence. It may seem like a lot of money but you’ll appreciate it over time.

What Is LASIK?

You may know that LASIK is a permanent procedure (with a 96% success rate) to correct your vision. This laser vision correction corrects refractive errors. Refractive errors are nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.

During a LASIK procedure, your surgeon will reshape the surface of your cornea with a laser. Your cornea is the transparent part of your eye that covers the front of your eye.

This will allow you to see clearly without glasses or contacts.

Benefits Of Having LASIK

Do you get headaches often? Do you have seasonal allergies, dry eyes, or the occasional eye infection?

These symptoms make it hard to focus. Having to put your glasses on, or contacts in adds one more problem to your day.

No longer needing to wear eyeglasses or contacts is a great way to improve your life. Do you play sports? 

Are you tired of messing with special sports glasses? Have you always wanted to take them off and play without them?

Now’s your chance!

It’s almost spring and the weather will be getting nicer outside. Imagine lacing up your sneakers for a walk around your neighborhood. 

You forgot your prescription sunglasses. But it’s alright because you had LASIK. Now you no longer need to worry about glasses.

What To Expect When Having LASIK

The procedure itself is not painful. Although you will be awake during LASIK, you shouldn’t expect to feel anything.

Your LASIK surgeon will numb your eyes first using special eye drops. They may also give you a mild sedative to help relax you and keep you calm during the 30-minute procedure.

Plan to have a friend or family member with you on the day of your procedure to give you a ride home. Make sure they are nearby in case you need anything.

You’ll rest and nap for the rest of the day. You may want to take a couple of days off of work to give your eyes time to heal and adjust.

Your eye doctor will prescribe eye drops for you to use for the first five days. They will also want to see you 24-48 hours after surgery to make sure that your eyes are healing well. 

After LASIK your vision will be more clear. You’ll be able to enjoy the benefits of living without eyeglasses.

Plus, imagine the money you will save once you cut your eyewear and eye care costs. Paying for new glasses, contact lenses, and solutions will all be in the past.

Consider how much money you spend on all that right now. Multiply that over your lifetime and you’ll realize that LASIK is worth the investment, right now.
