25 Dec Four awesome things about LASIK
You’re tired of wearing eyeglasses and/or contact lenses, but you’re not sure if LASIK surgery is right for you. LASIK is one of the safest elective surgical procedures available today. Millions of Americans have had LASIK eye surgery to correct their vision since it was introduced more than 20 years ago. Here are four awesome things about correcting your vision with LASIK:
1. It’s affordable: Think LASIK is too expensive? Get the facts. LASIK is more affordable than many people think, and we have a variety of payment and financing options.
2. It can treat more eye issues than ever before. Even if you weren’t a candidate for vision correction via LASIK before, you may be now. With our latest technology, we can correct astigmatism, nearsightedness, and farsightedness. The best way to find out if you are a candidate is to visit one of our centers to receive a free LASIK consultation. Your eyes will not be dilated at the time of your consultation, and you’re free to wear glasses or contact lenses. A LASIK consultant will perform a series of important scans to gather information to determine if you are a candidate for the surgery.
3. You’ll have more freedom. Wouldn’t it be nice to never have to worry about wearing your contacts too long or having to bring your glasses with you? After your LASIK procedure, you will never have to worry about putting in contacts or wearing glasses again. Instead, you get to wake up every day with clear vision.
4. Traveling is much easier. After you get LASIK, you will not have to worry about bringing your glasses with you on trips. There will also be no need to bring solution for your contacts.
At Utah Eye Centers, we use the latest in vision correction technology that makes the LASIK procedure safer than ever before and helps us to better measure unique imperfections in a person’s vision and design an individualized treatment.
Through our Customized Wavefront-guided LASIK technology, your eyes are individually mapped, “fingerprinted,” and your specific eye imperfections are identified. The information is then taken to our VISX laser, which precisely treats your individual prescription. Our surgeons can obtain measurements 25 times more precise than the standard LASIK measurement method!
