The Hidden Benefits of LASIK

LASIK can improve your quality of life by providing clear and lasting vision. Don’t let the initial cost of LASIK deter you from experiencing the hidden savings and benefits that come with this life-changing procedure.

There are many benefits to having LASIK surgery, including:
  • Reduced eyewear expenses: After LASIK surgery, most patients no longer need glasses or contact lenses. You can say goodbye to the constant need for new glasses or contact lens prescriptions, and the associated costs of purchasing frames, lenses, and cleaning solutions.
  • Increased productivity: You can work more efficiently without the hassle of glasses or contacts after LASIK surgery. Contact lenses can dry out when working on the computer for long periods of time. Eyeglasses can get dirty or foggy when working outdoors.
  • Recreational activities: LASIK gives you the freedom to participate in various recreational activities without the need for glasses or contact lenses. This can lead to significant savings on specialized sports eyewear. With LASIK, you can enjoy your favorite activities without any limitations and experience the world in a whole new way.
  • Water sports: George Costanza rocked his prescription swimming goggles. However, you will not need them after LASIK surgery. Enjoy swimming, boating, surfing and water skiing without corrective eye wear.
  • Reduced insurance costs: Many vision insurance plans have limitations and restrictions when it comes to coverage for glasses and contact lenses. By opting for LASIK, you can potentially reduce your dependence on vision insurance and save on premiums or out-of-pocket expenses.
  • Tax benefits: Using a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) or Health Savings Account (HSA) to pay for the procedure can help you save money. By contributing funds to an FSA or HSA account, you can take advantage of pre-tax dollars to pay for medical expenses, including LASIK surgery. This means that the overall cost of the procedure can be reduced, helping you save money.
  • Safety: Would you be able to find your way through a dark room without your eyeglasses? Some people who had LASIK surgery feel a sense of security knowing that they are able to see if a late night emergency occurs.

Investing in LASIK surgery can be a practical choice for those who are looking for a long-term solution for vision correction. By taking the time to weigh the benefits, risks, and costs, you can make an informed decision and enjoy the benefits of LASIK surgery for years to come. It’s important to consult with a qualified ophthalmologist to determine whether LASIK is a suitable option for you based on your personal circumstances and financial situation. Take control of your vision and your finances with LASIK.
