Lasik eye surgery has several benefits. Monetarily speaking, Lasik eye surgery is cheaper than eyeglasses and contacts in the long run. The procedure can help people feel better about their appearance as some people think spectacles detract from attractiveness. Most Lasik patients often get near 20/20 vision from their procedure. Generally speaking, surgery is permanent, so there is little to worry about the results getting worse over time.
Lasik surgery gives you the option to jump in the pool with a splash whenever you want. You never have to worry about putting your contacts in before you see what time it is when you wake up in the morning. Lasik treatment lets you have more fun in your life.
Lasik eye surgery patients recover very fast. Most people see better within the first day or two after the procedure. There are very few side effects and it is rare to feel any pain after surgery. Lasik patients often return to work the following day after their treatment. They also go back to driving within a day or two when their vision clears up enough. You will likely be back to all of your regular activities no later than three weeks after your procedure.
Lasik has been around since the late 1980’s. Doctors have had time to find the best methods of treatment and figure out what works and what does not. Many have spent decades perfecting their skills. Lasik surgery has an extremely low complication rate of one to five percent.
