No matter what kind of year you’ve had, most people will agree that they look forward to a new year starting. You get a clean slate and can finally put everything that’s happened behind you.
If you wear glasses or contacts, it’s also another perfect opportunity to finally take the plunge and get LASIK. Keep reading to find out why LASIK’s popularity will only grow in 2021!
It’s permanent visual freedom
2020 has been a year for the ages. From needing to wear a mask wherever you go to using more hand sanitizer than ever before, things have never been further from normal.
Wouldn’t it be amazing if you could count on something like your vision? If you wear glasses or contacts, that isn’t exactly possible.
You only get so much “freedom” when it comes to wearing these visual aids. Glasses get frustrating about five minutes after you put them on since they are always sliding down your nose.
Even if all you’re doing is walking your dog around the block, they seem to refuse to stay where they should. There’s a little more freedom if you’re wearing contacts, but it’s fleeting at best.
Contacts may be almost invisible, which is one of the biggest advantages of wearing them, but they also can cause irritation. There’s also a bit of a time limit when it comes to wearing them, which makes them less appealing.
LASIK is incredibly appealing because it provides you with permanent visual freedom! Yes, permanent.
For some reason, many people seem to think that LASIK doesn’t last. But this is simply not true.
LASIK is permanent because it involves using a laser to reshape your corneas. If that’s not permanent, nothing is!
Reshaping the corneas is what allows you to correct any refractive errors like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. This, in turn, leads to you finally experiencing the best vision you’ve ever had that will last forever.
LASIK will save you money over time
For most people, if they read the words save you money, they scoff and move on. But hold on.
LASIK really can and will save you money over time. It’s simple math, even for the people that don’t like math very much and would rather be on the beach working on their tan.
First things first, did you know that the average American is already spending about $500 every year on their eye care needs? That includes your glasses, contacts, contact lens solution, and any other accessories.
Now, remember, that this is only the average. So there is a good chance you could be paying more (or less) than what the average is.
Consider the next part, which is that LASIK is a one-time cost. Also, for many people, the only way they can afford the elective procedure, they have to finance it.
That means that with financing and flexible monthly payments, you’ll likely pay off your LASIK procedure after about 2 years. After paying off your procedure, your clear vision can start to pay for itself.
If you get LASIK in your mid to late twenties or even in your early thirties, you’re looking at decades of clear vision. More importantly, though, you’re also going to enjoy decades of your life where you no longer have to worry about spending that average of $500 every year on your eye care.
When you break it down like this, getting LASIK seems like one of the smartest investments you could make in yourself!
Say so long to foggy glasses for good!
2020 brought an issue that’s been on the backburner for a lot of people to the forefront because of wearing a mask. If you wear glasses with a mask, you know how frustrating foggy glasses are!
But the problem with this issue is that it actually occurs during other circumstances as well. Take times when you’ve gone outside and it’s cold.
When you come back into somewhere warm indoors and you also wear glasses, your glasses get foggy due to the change in temperature. Don’t forget the everyday inconveniences as well, like when you’re trying to make spaghetti and when you go to open the pot of pasta, your glasses are just full-on fog.
Not only is it inconvenient, but it’s also a waste of time. A few minutes here and there can add up. It may seem like nothing, but those evenings are your time to relax after a long day of work!
Do you really want to spend your time dealing with foggy glasses? LASIK is the perfect solution because you’ll be free from the confines and constraints of glasses and even contacts.
Your vision will be clear and for many patients, you’ll end up with the best vision of your life. We’re talking 20/20 vision or better in many cases!
Of course, the first step on this visual journey is to find out if you’re a good candidate for LASIK.
LASIK can be one of the best kinds of self-care if you’re a candidate
Considering how downright exhausting 2020 has been, don’t be surprised if everyone you know is doing what they can to take part in self-care! For some, this is something like bath bombs, journaling for a healthy release, or even making a commitment to work out more.
But for others that are sick and tired of needing to rely on glasses or contacts to see the world around them, it may be as simple as getting LASIK. You may be thinking, but what about the recovery?
The good news is that the recovery after LASIK is quick and nothing to worry about! In fact, most patients that undergo LASIK can go back to work the next day!
As long as you follow the instructions provided by your eye doctor, you’ll end up with results you’ll be happy with. After all, there’s a reason that LASIK has an incredible 96% success rate with patients who have already had the procedure!
