How LASIK Can Help You Keep Your New Year’s Resolutions
Written by Shannon Wong on January 21, 2019
Are you one of the millions of people who make New Year’s resolutions but struggle to keep them? If so, clear vision with LASIK may be what you need to accomplish your goals in 2019. LASIK is a quick procedure that treats nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism by reshaping the eye’s cornea, restoring clear vision. Most patients achieve 20/20 vision or better while reducing their dependency on prescription eyewear.
Exercising and losing weight are some of the most popular resolutions made each year. But if you wear glasses or contacts, you know how difficult it can be to remain active with blurry vision. With LASIK, you will no longer have to worry about foggy glasses — or even worse, breaking them and injuring yourself — while you exercise or play sports. Instead, you will be ready to go on a run, take a swim or play your favorite contact sport at a moment’s notice.
Get Your Dream Job
Having LASIK done is a great option if you are thinking about switching jobs or careers this upcoming year. Clear vision with LASIK opens the door to new opportunities and jobs that require great vision without glasses or contacts. Certain professions like law enforcement, the military, aviation, and firefighting require good vision, as prescription eyewear and blurry vision can affect job performance. Other jobs may not require near perfect vision but can certainly benefit from it. Individuals who wear prescription eyewear and work in front of computers all day may experience eye strain, dry eye and other bothersome symptoms. By reducing or even eliminating the need for glasses and contacts, LASIK can make computer work more comfortable and possibly more productive.
If saving money is one of your New Year’s resolutions, you may be surprised to learn that getting LASIK is a smart choice! Consider how much money you spend on upgrading or replacing your eyeglasses or contact lenses and cleaning supplies. It can easily reach tens of thousands of dollars over the years. By having LASIK once, you can potentially save thousands of dollars over the course of your lifetime.
