Why Choose LASIK Over Glasses
Glasses are an irritation and inconvenience. They are prone to
scratches, getting lost, fogging, and breaking, and they have to be
replaced periodically. Even top name brand frames are still the same
technology Ben Franklin used.
Can you throw away
your glasses forever after LASIK? The good news is that
LASIK will have you seeing clearly for many years. The
younger you are when you get LASIK, the longer you can
be free from glasses. By the time you reach your 40s you
may need reading glasses due to the effects of aging
(Presbyopia) but you'll still be free from the effects
of astigmatism, farsightedness or nearsightedness.
Why Choose LASIK Over Contacts
Contacts, while a great alternative to glasses, have
their own issues. Losing, misplacing, forgetting,
scratching, slipping, tearing, sore eyes, red eyes,
itchy eyes, glued to your eyeballs, and the continuing
cost of lenses and cleaning solution - is this beginning
to sound like your life?
After LASIK you can take
all of these words, phrases and hassles out of your
dictionary - and your life.
We've put together this list of our patients' most common gripes
and delights in the LASIK Versus Contacts debate.
