There are many reasons to have LASIK surgery. Ask people who have successfully undergone this procedure and they will tell you their primary reasons for choosing LASIK. They will also tell you how it has changed their lives for the better in many ways. Being able to see clearly without the assistance of contact lenses or glasses can have an outstanding effect on a person's life. Having excellent vision is monumental. It means that you can see without assistance and you can drive without wearing glasses or contact lenses! But it also means so much more. LASIK is the answer to many issues related toimperfect vision.
Look below for a sample of the many reasons to have LASIK:
Have you ever lost or broken your glasses? Anyone who relies on glasses to see clearly knows the panic that strikes when glasses are lost or broken. Without your glasses, you may be unable to function. Many people have such poor vision that they cannot see more than a few feet ahead of them without their glasses. This is just one reason many people with poor vision opt for LASIK surgery. Assuming they are good candidates for the procedure, LASIK can eliminate the need for glasses altogether!
Do your contact lenses intensify irritation in your eyes? People who need corrective lenses to see clearly often opt for contacts because they do not like wearing glasses all the time. Glasses do not normally cause irritation to the eyes (though they can irritate the nose and ears!), but contact lenses can be uncomfortable. Tired eyes, allergies, windy weather, and eye infections are just a few causes of irritation. Combining irritated eyes with contact lenses can be truly painful! Some people are more prone than others to suffering from irritated eyes, but contact lenses often exaggerate the problem. Contact lens users that suffer from eye irritation are very pleased when LASIK surgery removes the need to use them.
Do you always keep your head out of the water? Many people like to swim or play water sports. But it's practically impossible to swim while wearing glasses or contact lenses. Some people wear contact lenses in combination with goggles when they go into the water, but this is risky because water often infiltrates goggles and gets in the eyes. Glasses simply cannot be worn while swimming if you plan to put your head under the water. Prescription goggles are a possibility, but they are expensive. Swimmers and people who either enjoy water sports or like to put their heads under water when they get in a pool are typically very happy after undergoing LASIK! After LASIK, people can put their heads under water in a pool or in the ocean and still be able to see clearly.
The list of reasons to have LASIK goes on and on. But the primary reason to have LASIK surgery is that it corrects the most common causes for imperfect vision. Clear vision without the need for contact lenses or glasses is a huge benefit that can be enjoyed in a multitude of ways! Let ReVision help you get your “Vision for Life”!
