‘Tis the season to make your list of New Year’s resolutions. While many people are vowing to lose weight, floss more often or take up a new hobby, why not consider your quality of vision? Leave your prescription glasses and contact lenses in 2021 and live with visual independence in 2022 and beyond. At Kornmehl Laser Eye Associates in Boston, we can make your New Year’s resolution a reality with LASIK or PRK.
Laser eye surgery such as LASIK and PRK comes with various benefits. Some are obvious enough, but 20/20 or better vision opens up more possibilities than many people realize.
Enjoy Activities Without Limitations
Wearing glasses and even contact lenses is cumbersome for many activities. From contact sports and swimming to skiing and snowboarding, a litany of games and hobbies are more complicated for people with corrective eyewear. LASIK broadens your opportunities, so you can discover new activities to enjoy without the hassle of irritating contacts or foggy glasses.
Increase Your Visual Confidence in Your Career
Some professions, such as aeronautics (pilots, air traffic controllers), require excellent eyesight, and these professions may be open to you after LASIK. Depending on your current career path, you could improve your job performance. For example, designers, jewelers, firefighters, police officers and military personnel may gain confidence in their abilities with better vision.
Save Money Over Your Lifetime
The annual cost of contact lenses, backup glasses, prescription sunglasses or goggles, solutions, cases and so on adds up. When you consider the long-term expense of poor vision, the one-time cost of LASIK or PRK becomes worth it. Financing options are available to help you eliminate glasses or contacts, and laser eye surgery is eligible for Flex Spending Accounts (FSAs) and Health Savings Accounts (HSAs).
Greet Every Day with Clear Vision
Reaching for your glasses or contact lens case is likely the first thing you do every morning and your last action each night. Your days of viewing a blurry ceiling and room every day are over after LASIK or PRK. You can enjoy clear vision as you get ready for your day and sip that cup of coffee without a second thought. No more struggling with dry eyes or scratched, bent lenses and frames because you fell asleep wearing your contact lenses or glasses.
Many patients report better quality of life and improved confidence after LASIK. Most people are eligible for the procedure as laser eye surgery treats a wide range of refractive errors, including astigmatism, farsightedness and nearsightedness.
If you are ready to throw out your contact lenses and retire your prescription glasses for good, contact Kornhmehl Laser Eye Associates in Boston so that we can bring your New Year’s resolution to life.
