Benefits of LASIK Eye Surgery
Discover Vision Correction Through LASIK
Is LASIK safe?
Is LASIK worth it?
Is LASIK right for me?
If you have struggled with poor vision for years, you have likely asked those questions. We understand that the idea of any surgery—particularly eye surgery to reshape your cornea—can be anxiety-inducing, and so we would like to ease some of your concerns and share some of the benefits that you can expect to experience.
Benefit: The LASIK procedure is proven to be safe and effective.
According to the American Refractive Surgery Council, the LASIK complication rate—specific to complications like infections or dislocation of the corneal flap that would require additional treatment—is less than one percent. All of our LASIK surgeries are performed by a highly trained and experienced LASIK surgeon. We also work closely with you in the weeks prior to your surgery, along with your primary eye doctor, to plan the best possible course of vision correction for your specific refractive error, discuss any possible short-term side effects, and help you prepare for post-surgery care.
Benefit: There is little to no pain during or after LASIK.
You may believe a common misconception that LASIK eye surgery is painful. In reality, there is very little pain, if any, involved during the procedure. Patients may experience some minor discomfort in the several days following LASIK surgery, such as your eyes feeling scratchy or irritated or being sensitive to light, but that discomfort will quickly pass and can be soothed with eye drops.
Benefit: LASIK can reduce your dependence on reading glasses or contacts.
If you have spent years relying on glasses or contact lenses, LASIK surgery can bring freedom. Contact lenses are expensive and can also irritate and dry your eyes after wearing them for many hours a day. LASIK corrects common vision problems for patients that are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism. Prescription glasses need to be updated every couple of years, which can be pricey. The necessity of wearing glasses can sometimes hold you back from activities like competitive sports and swimming. A one-time investment in LASIK can save you money in the long run and reduce your reliance on reading glasses and contacts.
Benefit: LASIK is affordable, with financing to fit your budget.
We offer a variety of payment plans and financing options that allow you to comfortably afford the surgery. You can use your Flexible Spending Account toward your procedure, then pay the remaining balance over a 24-month period. Or, you can take advantage of 0 percent financing for 24 months. If you’ve been putting off LASIK due to concerns about costs, we encourage you to explore the current payment plans.
