Is LASIK a Good Investment?
LASIK is an investment in your vision. Based on patient experience, it’s also an experience that adds valued benefits and satisfaction to a person’s life. Having LASIK eye surgery is a better solution for many people that have nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism than other visual aids. Using a prescription product in close contact with the eye is a perfectly acceptable solution, but LASIK surgery offers many benefits compared to contacts and eyeglasses.
LASIK surgery benefits you may experience include:
- No worry of infection from prolonged contact lens use
- Fewer infections in general
- No lens cleaning solution fees
- No contact refills every year
- Less damaging to the eye over time
- Fewer trips to the optometrist
- More freedom
- Ability to be spontaneous
- Improved night vision
- Reduced allergy symptoms
- Fewer headaches
- Less eye strain compared to using optical aids
In reality, LASIK is less expensive over time than contacts or glasses. LASIK eye surgery is a fixed cost. Although LASIK surgery is a large one-time expense, it’s often cheaper than the long-term cost of contact lens wear or eyeglasses. Once you have the treatment, there are no more fees. Care Credit monthly financing plans, Health Spending Accounts and other options may help you pay with a monthly payment for the length of time that fits your budget.
