Five Clear Benefits of LASIK

Posted on December 7, 2020 by - LASIK

Laser vision correction in Phoenix

Life after LASIK is not just about clarity, but also understanding: clear vision for the eyes, and the sudden realization, by many patients, that choosing laser vision correction — and achieving lifetime freedom from lenses — is something they should have done years before.

Here, experienced ophthalmologist Dr. Jay Schwartz of Phoenix-area Schwartz Laser Eye Center reviews the top benefits of LASIK, from cost to clarity.

1. Sharp Vision

By reshaping the cornea with a cool-to-the-touch surgical laser, an ophthalmological surgeon can ensure that images received by the eye are focused on the retina with maximum sharpness. The result is a high-definition view that features a whole new dimension in clarity.

2. No Adjustment Needed

For most patients, LASIK is a once-and-done procedure that permanently corrects vision. That means no more annual adjustments to your prescription. This long-lasting benefit of LASIK is especially true for patients who undergo the procedure after their eyes have fully matured.

3. Wide-Angle Views

After LASIK, your field of vision is wide open, without the visual intrusion of eyewear. You’ll enjoy the convenience and freedom of unlimited peripheral vision, the full panorama of life.

4. No Expensive Frames

Prescription lenses with frames can cost hundreds of dollars. If your prescription changes frequently, or if you simply have a habit of misplacing or cracking your glasses, the expense will be substantial.

5. Skip Contact Lens Fittings

Costs for contact lenses add up quickly, too. Depending on the recommended frequency of disposal, you will pay several hundreds of dollars each year for fresh lenses. Contacts that correct for astigmatism will be more expensive. During your regular eye exam, you will also pay extra for an additional contact lens fitting. LASIK eliminates all of these future expenses.
