So you’re thinking about getting LASIK. Great!
LASIK surgery can change your life for the better. But plenty of people who want to get LASIK struggle to go through the actual process of getting a consultation and scheduling the procedure.
LASIK is something that doesn’t fit into every budget. It’s also an elective procedure, meaning you’ll have to pay out of pocket for it.
But if you can afford it, it’s worth it. The benefits of LASIK far outweigh the drawbacks. Here are just three reasons why LASIK is worth it:
1. Save Time
If you wear contacts or glasses, you probably spend way more time and energy on maintenance than you realize. For contact lens wearers, you have to take them out and put them back in every morning and night.
You also have to make sure your eyes stay lubricated throughout the day. If you wear glasses most of the time, you’re undoubtedly familiar with the various pains of having dirty or foggy lenses that you have to wipe clean.
These small moments throughout the day add up. But with LASIK, you never have to worry about any eye wear maintenance. You won’t need any eye wear at all!
LASIK gives you more time to spend doing more important things than worrying about how you’re able to see.
2. Save Money
Because LASIK can be expensive, it may sound counterintuitive that it can save you money. But in the long term, it can!
Think about how much you spend on glasses and contacts. Those expenses add up, especially year to year.
Even with vision insurance, the cost of glasses and contacts is substantial. That’s before surprise expenses not often covered by insurance like when you lose your glasses and need a replacement.
Getting LASIK is essentially an investment. You pay for the procedure in one upfront cost and then save money over the years. After all, you’ll no longer have to pay for glasses or contacts.
And if you can’t pay for LASIK upfront? That’s okay, too!
There are several payment plans available for LASIK. Many of these are zero interest and can cost as little as $60 a month. LASIK can be affordable as well as save you money over the long-term!
3. Save Face
Beyond the convenience of doing away with contacts and glasses, LASIK can change your whole world view. Not only can you see better, but you can change up your look so much more without ever having to worry about contact lenses.
LASIK gives you the freedom to show your face in all its glory. If you’ve ever wanted to experiment with all kinds of looks, LASIK will provide you with this ability.
You can look more professional at your job while also getting more work done during the time you’d spend adjusting your contact lenses. You can go outside more and enjoy walks at night.
Virtually everything becomes simpler after you get LASIK. You can see more, do more, and be more!
