What is LASIK?

Let’s begin with answering this question: What is LASIK?

LASIK is a life changing procedure that uses precise lasers to reshape the cornea for permanent vision correction. It can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.

With LASIK, you should no longer need to use glasses or contact lenses. The vast majority of our patients will have 20/20 vision giving them the visual freedom they need.

Contacts vs LASIK

Many people often wonder about the benefit of LASIK over contacts.

After all, contact lenses don’t require surgery and also give you clear vision without the hassle of glasses. However, there are a few reasons why LASIK can be the better choice.

Here Are Our Top Three Reasons
Why Some People Choose LASIK Over Contact Lenses:

The lifetime cost of contact lenses is thousands of dollars more expensive than one-time LASIK procedure.

There are potentially dangerous health risks of long term contact lens wear, such as eye infections, while LASIK is a safe, low-risk surgery.

LASIK surgery will end up saving you time, since you no longer have to worry about caring for your contacts, buying solution, and ordering contacts every time you run out.

For your convenience, we have compiled all this information and more about the benefits of LASIK vs. contact lenses in one easy-to-read document.
