If you wear glasses or contacts, you have probably considered using LASIK surgery to achieve clearer vision. LASIK is a safe, effective, and permanent option for vision correction available to a wide range of patients with all types of refractive disorders. There are many benefits associated with LASIK surgery, and some of those are listed below.
Surgery is over in moments
After you see your eye doctor for an assessment of your vision and your needs from surgery, you will be just one visit away from better vision. LASIK surgery takes only a few minutes to perform, and you do not need to be sedated in any way before surgery. You will notice an immediate improvement in your vision with more gradual changes over the next few days.
LASIK is customizable
There are multiple laser options for LASIK surgery, and the right one for you depends on the unique anatomy of your eyes. The Allegretto Wave laser is a highly customizable system that utilizes cornea mapping for the most accurately targeted laser treatment available. The IntraLase laser is another component that can be used in conjunction with the Allegretto laser to make surgery completely bladeless.
You can live without glasses or contacts
Your vision may change in the future as a natural result of the aging process, but the improvements made with LASIK surgery are permanent. Most patients are able to see clear enough after surgery that glasses or contact lenses are no longer needed. If you are spending a significant amount of money purchasing new contacts or getting new frames for your glasses on a regular basis, LASIK could actually be a money-saving investment in the long run.
