The start of a new year can be an excellent time to have LASIK eye surgery. If you suffer from myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), or astigmatism, LASIK surgery with Dr. Kerry Solomon offers an effective and safe corrective option.
LASIK surgery with Dr. Solomon is a quick and virtually painless procedure performed in an outpatient setting. The surgeon uses a topical anesthetic to numb the eyes, ensuring patient comfort prior to the procedure. The entire procedure typically takes 15 minutes, with relatively short recovery time.
Here are Five Great Reasons to Start the New Year with LASIK Surgery
- LASIK provides you great vision with less dependence on glasses & contacts. LASIK boasts a high success rate. In some cases, patients who get LASIK surgery come away with even better than 20/20 vision.
- LASIK surgery can save you a considerable amount of money over time. While the initial cost of LASIK may be higher than buying glasses or contacts, having to renew prescriptions, purchase cleaning supplies and buy new glasses once or twice a year can exceed the cost of LASIK over time.
- LASIK is a healthier option than contact lenses. Contact lenses attract dirt and particles that can lead to infections and potentially serious eye problems that can in turn lead to permanent damage. The risk of vision-threatening infection with contact lenses is approximately five times greater for contact lens-wearing patients versus patients who have had LASIK surgery.
- LASIK provides convenience and ease of travel. Having to remember to pack contact lenses and their accouterments is a bother that goes away after LASIK. The freedom to be spontaneous and the ease of travel that comes with LASIK are major benefits of the procedure. If you are an athlete, the days of fogged glasses are over after LASIK.
- LASIK surgery offers almost immediate results. LASIK creates clearer vision almost immediately after surgery. The ability to see clearly in all types of light and not having the hassle of storing and cleaning contact lenses or glasses are instant improvements. Downtime is minimal so you will be free to enjoy the benefits that come with vision independence after LASIK.
Now that the holidays are in full swing, it is an excellent time to prepare for a fresh start by having LASIK surgery. Dr. Solomon is dedicated to restoring your eyes to their optimal condition, and looks forward to helping you with any questions or concerns about LASIK surgery.
