Benefits of LASIK Surgery with Your East Liverpool, Youngstown, Warren, and Poland, OH, Optometrist
Clear vision is the desire of many people but wearing eyeglasses or contacts every day isn’t quite as desirable. Fortunately, there is a great solution: LASIK surgery. Learn more about the benefits it provides and whether you’re a good candidate for LASIK in this guide from Eye Care Associates Inc. in Poland, OH.
It’s a Quick and Safe Procedure
LASIK isn’t something that takes hours and hours to carry out. It only takes about 20 minutes from the time you’re prepped for the procedure to when the surgery is complete. It might take a little longer if you have it completed on both eyes. It’s also an outpatient procedure, so you don’t have to stay in a hospital overnight to recover.
As far as safety goes, any procedure comes with some level of risk. However, LASIK is FDA approved and is considered a very safe procedure.
Vision Is Clearer in Record Time
You don’t have to wait weeks to see the results or to heal. In most cases, patients start seeing fine by the day following the procedure. And you can usually get back to your regular activities within 48 hours. Imagine waking up without the need to grab your glasses or contacts within a couple of days.
LASIK doesn’t always help patients achieve 20/20 vision. However, it does improve vision greatly. Most people are able to live without the use of eyeglasses or contacts. Those that do still need eyewear usually only need it at certain times or for certain activities. Most LASIK patients go through most or all of their day without the need for a visual device.
It Can Save You Money
One of the hurdles of LASIK for many people is the cost that comes with it. The truth is, though, that it can save you a ton of money over time—paying for itself in almost no time. Think about how much you spend on eyeglasses, contacts, and contact solution every year. With LASIK, those costs are eliminated or, at a minimum, greatly reduced.
