Gain Your Own Independence With LASIK

June 28, 2017

This Fourth of July, we’ll be celebrating our Independence Day with fireworks, hot dogs, music, and plenty of friends and family. It’s a celebration of our break with Britain and the fierce desire for American independence, and it’s always a fun time. But this year, why not think about using the Fourth to celebrate something else? Why not celebrate your own personal Independence Day with LASIK?

With LASIK, you can finally make your break from the glasses or contacts that you’ve been living with for years. Like the relationship between the British and the Revolutionary Americans, your relationship with your corrective lenses is probably a little rocky. Do you hate wearing glasses, but find that contacts irritate your eyes or constantly drain your budget with monthly purchases? Do you feel like you’re losing money when your prescription changes and you need new lenses again?

If so, then maybe it’s time to start thinking about gaining your own independence—ditching the glasses or contacts and finally making the change to the clear vision you’ve always dreamed of.

Luckily, you won’t have to fight a grueling eight-year war to gain your independence. Instead, you’ll have to make it through about 10-15 minutes per eye to get your perfect vision. All in all, LASIK surgery is one of the quickest, safest, and most effective procedures that you can undergo. You’ll be back to your routine in just a day or two, and any complications, while statistically highly unlikely, can easily be treated with a follow up visit.

Older Americans who may have been living with glasses or contacts for most of their life may think that it’s too late for them to receive the benefits of LASIK, but that’s just not true. People don’t age out of their eligibility for LASIK, and getting the procedure can help older Americans regain some of the independence that they had when they were younger.

Clear eyesight makes it easier for them to get around the house, drive on their own, and take care of themselves. Getting older doesn’t mean you have to give up your autonomy and rely on others to take care of you. Instead, turn to LASIK or one of the other laser eye surgeries that can provide you with exceptional eyesight, even later in life.

So yes, LASIK is right for parents, grandparents, and even those just starting out in their adult life. And when the fireworks are booming overhead, you’ll have a perfect view thanks to LASIK eye surgery. You’ll also be able to keep your eye on the ball when you son or daughter wants to play a game of catch while the burgers sizzle on the grill.

In the end, you’ll be able to end your reliance on corrective lenses, and take back your independence, just like our forefathers.

The U.S. fight for independence was long and difficult, but yours can be a breeze. If you’re in the New Jersey area, then call us today and we can set up a consultation to discuss your options for LASIK.
