Why LASIK Is a Better Option than Glasses and Contacts

LASIK vs. Glasses & Contacts Los Angeles

Glasses and contacts can give you the adequately clear vision you need for daily life, but they come with many drawbacks. Whether you’ve worn glasses or contacts since you were young or are having trouble with your vision for the first time, you should know there is another option available for vision correction that is safe, hassle free and permanent. LASIK surgery gives you clear, independent, and high-quality vision without the limitations and inconveniences of glasses and contacts. Read on as the team at Laser Eye Center explains why we feel LASIK is a better option than the handicap of glasses or contacts.

No Concerns about Losing, Breaking or Forgetting Your Contacts or Glasses

Glasses can help with your vision problems, but relying on them to see clearly can be a daily hassle. Think about the panic of forgetting them at home — or worse, losing them! And if you’re an active person, you risk them slipping off and breaking, which can cost a hefty sum of money as well as the time to fix them.

Contacts may seem more convenient than glasses, but there is always the chance they can fall out of your eye and get lost, and some people don’t like the idea of putting a foreign object in their eye. Moreover, recent studies show that contact lens infection is literally among the top three causes of emergency room visits in the U.S. today!

Countless Lifestyle Freedoms

LASIK gives you the clear, independent vision you need and deserve to enjoy your favorite hobbies and activities. Whether you enjoy connecting with your family and friends through running, travel, art or sports, LASIK makes it easier to do what you love. If you’re a parent, you don’t have to worry about missing a moment with your kids. You can simply get up and go without worrying about glasses or contacts.

Simple Pleasures

Clear, independent vision leads to simple pleasures, too. Think about waking up and looking at your clock or seeing your children’s faces without the time lag of having to put your contacts in first causing you to miss organic once-in-a-lifetime moments. Or getting up in the middle of the night to get a glass of water without having to fumble for your glasses in the dark. All of this and more is possible with LASIK.

Exceptional Value

With laser vision correction tried and tested for almost 30 years, LASIK proves to be one of the most valuable investments you can make in your vision. It also makes good financial sense. Consider what you currently pay for glasses, contacts, cleaning and maintenance costs. Also consider the stress it places on your time over the years. LASIK frees you from these expenses, paying for itself over time. In fact, with the rising costs of eyewear, LASIK can even save you substantial sums of money in the long term.

Laser Eye Center offers a range of financing options that are practical, affordable and convenient, and which are designed to match any budget.
