Glasses or Contacts Getting in the Way?

tired of wearing glassesIf you are active and want to enjoy your day-to-day life, you will not want to wear cumbersome and annoying glasses all the time. Think about it, when you are on the road, at the office or in the gym, you will enjoy life more if you don’t have to constantly deal with your glasses. Lasik is a vision correction surgery that can help you reduce or eliminate the need for glasses so you can enjoy life.

Here are four reasons you should get rid of those glasses and get Lasik…

Money: Without a doubt, if you wear glasses, you probably spend a lot of money. Not only do you need constant eye tests and evaluations, you need to replace your frames when your prescription changes or if you decide to change the style of your frames. Over the long haul, you end up spending a lot of money to keep your vision clear – year after year. People drop their glasses, sit on them or break them forcing them to replace frames earlier than insurance would cover, if your insurance even covers any frames at all.

Most insurances will cover only a percentage of the cost to buy glasses leaving you with unexpected out-of-pocket expenses anyway. Fortunately, with Lasik, you can do the procedure and save yourself a lot of money over the long term. Believe it or not, while the cost for Lasik eye surgery is higher up front, recent studies show that there is dramatic cost savings getting Lasik rather than spending money on glasses or contacts over and over again.

Running: If you like to jog outdoors, you probably want to see well. You want to see the beauty of the outside world! You want to avoid hitting objects or running into a car. Without glasses or contacts, you might overlook curbs and trip over your own feet. If you have pretty a high prescription and are very active, you could end up on your hands and knees feeling around for the pair of glasses or contact lens that just bounced off your face. Contacts also dry and irritate your eyes while you are running outdoors. For these reasons, and many more, you really should consider Lasik which is a wonderful long-term alternative to wearing glasses or contacts.

Other Sports: If you like surfing or doing anything on the water, you will realize quickly that glasses repeatedly fall off. On the other hand, if you wear contact lenses, they may fall out the minute you go under water. If you like to lift weights or go to a rock climbing gym, you will also likely struggle with glasses. Not only that, other methods to hold your glasses on are ineffective. In the end, people often either skip wearing the glasses or contacts entirely for some activities. These options are really not ideal for a busy athlete who wants to stay in shape.

Glare: When going out in the sun, you will deal with plenty of glare. But, if you wear regular glasses, you are even more vulnerable as the glare from the sun can reduce your vision dramatically. This is a major concern if you drive in Las Vegas where sun and glare are an almost constant companion. You can try wearing sunglasses to reduce glare, but some prescription glasses still contribute to excessive glare.

Without a doubt, if you want visual freedom and you want to see better than ever before without glasses or contacts, head to Lasik of Nevada for your free consultation to find out if you are a candidate. LASIK will save you time and money in the long run and remember, you’ll also see the world like you’ve never seen it before!
