Top 25 Benefits Of LASIK

August 11, 2016
  1. Instant gratification. You’ll have improvement in your vision as soon as the procedure is complete, and it will continue to improve through the short healing process.
  2. You can ditch your glasses like Clark Kent turning into Superman when you walk into work the next day.
  3. That’s right, there’s very little downtime associated with LASIK. You can probably return to work the next day.
  4. Patients experience little or no pain from the procedure.
  5. But you still get some sympathy for going through surgery. “Get well soon!”
  6. It’s long lasting. Many patients never wear their glasses or contacts again.
  7. So your eyes will never again look like you’re recovering from a bender when you were really just struggling with your contacts this morning.
  8. LASIK saves you money in the long run. No more costs associated with new eyeglass prescriptions or contacts.
  9. Which means you’ve got more money to blow on whatever you’d like. Infomercials actually have some great stuff.
  10. It’s quick. The procedure only takes 5-15 minutes to complete in both eyes.
  11. So you’ve got the rest of your day to relax and eat ice cream. It’s not just for tonsils.
  12. LASIK is safe. It’s been performed and perfected for nearly 25 years. Did we even have the internet 25 years ago?
  13. An easy follow up procedure can further correct any vision issues after LASIK.
  14. That means even more ice cream.
  15. It actually works. Seriously, the success rate is astronomical.
  16. People will notice your eyes like never before. “Didn’t you have glasses…”
  17. Attractivepeople will notice your eyes like never before. “They’re so blue…”
  18. Meaning more self-confidence.
  19. You’ll never wake up and need your glasses to find your glasses. Ah, the classic conundrum.
  20. You’ll finally be the one half-heartedly looking for a contact while someone else scrambles around on the floor.
  21. You won’t have to pay for prescription sunglasses anymore. Normal sunglasses are expensive enough.
  22. You don’t have to worry about what you’re going to do when you get on the field for your favorite sport. Contacts? Glasses off? “This is slow pitch, right? I can leave them on.”
  23. Your driver’s license photo will look that much better. Relatively speaking.
  24. You’ll look younger. Like it or not, glasses lend an air of, shall we say, experience?
  25. Oh yeah, and you’ll see like never before. Nothing on your face, nothing in your eyes, and nothing between you and this big, beautiful world.

LASIK isn’t right for everyone, but it can’t hurt to find out if you’re a good candidate. Contact OCLI today to schedule a consultation.
