Why Now is the Time to Look Into LASIK
February 28, 2019
LASIK eye surgery can be a life-changing experience for anyone. The sooner you decide to get it, the longer you’ll be able to enjoy crystal-clear vision and life without contact lenses and glasses. So, when is the best time to look into LASIK?
If you’re a good candidate for the procedure and are ready to experience life with clearer vision, now is the best time to consider LASIK. Here are a few reasons why.
See Clearly for the Summer
If you have a vacation planned or are planning your annual shore trips, correcting your eyesight now will make your summer easier and clearer. Overall, LASIK eye surgery is a quick procedure that results in enhanced vision as soon as the morning after. However, full recovery for it can take up to six weeks.
Getting LASIK allows your eyes to heal just in time for the spring and summer. You just need to make sure you allow your eyes to rest as needed and go to all your post-op appointments so that you recover properly.
Once your eyes are completely stable, you’ll be able to embark on your vacations and weekend shore trips with crystal-clear vision!
Make LASIK More Affordable
When it comes to LASIK affordability, it’s best to undergo the procedure now rather than wait. Not only will you be able to eliminate the cost of contacts and glasses from your budget sooner, but you’ll also be able to make LASIK more affordable.
If you have an FSA or an HSA, you’ll be able to use those funds to help pay for your LASIK procedure. Money contributed to an FSA will typically be available in January. HSA funds are available as soon as contributions are deducted from your paychecks and will carry over year to year.
You can also use your tax returns to make LASIK more affordable. Many people get their refunds during this time of year. If you already received yours, consider using it towards your surgery for added savings.
LASIK Technologies are More Advanced
Technologies can influence how LASIK is performed as well as the results patients experience. Today, LASIK technologies are more advanced than ever, making the surgery faster, safer, and more precise. They have also made it easier for patients to get the specific treatments they need to enhance their vision.
The most cutting-edge industry tools of today are iDesign and Wavefront Technology. Scanning each eye for three seconds, the system creates a detailed map showing imperfections and how your eyes process light. Using the information gathered from the scans, the surgeon creates a treatment plan that caters to your unique eyes.
From there, your personalized treatment is administered through an ultra-precise, cool-beam laser. The information from your Wavefront scan will guide the laser as it reshapes your cornea to the appropriate curvature, permanently correcting your vision.
Thanks to all the technologies used, LASIK only takes around ten minutes to complete for each eye and results in years of outstanding eyesight.
If you’re ready to see the world clearly without contact lenses and glasses, now is the best time to look into LASIK. Learn more about this effective solution and schedule your consultation at Kremer Eye Center today!
