Is LASIK A Good Investment?
June 28, 2021
Nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism are problems that millions of Americans live with. Many people do not like having to rely on corrective lenses like glasses or contact lenses to get through their day. If you are part of that group, then there is an answer. Permanent vision correction is more popular today than ever, and for good reason. Procedures like LASIK surgery are one safe, cost-effective option that can help you live your life without having to be dependent on corrective lenses.
Why Choose LASIK Surgery?
Glasses and contact lenses can be very inconvenient, even if you are used to using them. Glasses break, contact lenses need to be reordered, and both of them can be easily misplaced. Wearing them requires time, money, and hassle, all of which can take a toll on your lifestyle. LASIK is a permanent solution to poor vision that gets rid of those annoyances in a safe and cost-effective way. The LASIK procedure is in fact cheaper in the long run compared to glasses and contact lenses because the cost is fixed and a one-time expense. After the procedure, you will not incur additional expenses like with glasses and contact lenses.
Benefits of LASIK Surgery
- Experience clear vision day and night
- Escape the need for corrective lenses
- Very low chance of infection
- No fees for cleaning lenses or refilling contacts
- Fewer headaches and allergy symptoms
- Fewer visits to the optometrist
- More freedom to experience life!
How Much Does LASIK Cost?
The LASIK procedure does not come without its costs. The average price for LASIK is $2,500 for one eye and $4,500 for both eyes, and most patients pay for the procedure out of pocket.
Is LASIK Worth It?
For most people, LASIK is well worth the investment. After having LASIK surgery you can do all the things that you wanted to do but were held back from doing by glasses or contacts. Most importantly, you will be able to enjoy the peace of mind that comes with having solid vision.
