When you have blurry vision due to nearsightedness or astigmatism, you have a reason to complain. You have trouble reading street signs, putting on makeup, and even seeing your alarm clock in the morning. LASIK eye surgery is a way to permanently correct your vision so you don’t have to live with all those inconveniences any more. But did you know that LASIK can also save you money?
Think about this: if you wear contact lenses, you have to have an eye exam every year, as well as replace your contact lenses. You also have cleaning solutions, storage cases, and lubricating eye drops for when your eyes get dry. If your eyesight is bad enough, you need to keep a backup pair of glasses, in case you lose a lens and don’t have a replacement. You will probably also suffer occasional eye infections, where you will need to wear glasses for a while. However you look at it, correcting your vision with contacts or glasses costs a lot of money, over time.
With LASIK surgery, you pay for the surgery, up front, but then you don’t have to worry about your vision again. Most people never need any additional correction and just need to have occasional eye exams for the health of their eyes. After several years, the surgery could turn out to be cheaper than the contacts, solutions and glasses.
Review your expenses and see if LASIK makes sense for you. You can schedule a free consultation at Boothe Laser Center to see if you are a candidate for the procedure. After an eye exam, Dr. William Boothe will review your options and recommend a treatment plan.
