Lasik Eye Surgery - What Will You Gain From Having the Operation?


Visitors: 145

Lasik eye surgeries are a collective name for a group of surgical procedures that rid the patient of the use of glasses or contact lenses.

These procedures are expensive, and they do have some amount of risk and possible complications. Yet, thousands of people every year undergo these procedures and get rid of the constant use of glasses on contacts. So, when you consider going for this surgery, you need to consider the advantages this procedure will bring you, and weigh it against the risks.

The advantages of having a Lasik eye surgery are substantial. Here's a detailed description of them:

1. You will look better to most people. There are some people that glasses look good on them, but for most of us, glasses have a negative effect on our appearance. It makes us look in many cases older that our real age, and in makes us look like a “nerd" (even if we're not). Many models, actors, TV performers and other people who appear before an audience, used a Lasik surgery to get rid of their glasses. If you feel that you look better without glasses, you should consider the surgery. This is especially true for people who have a high number glasses. These glasses look even worse that the others, because of the glass thickness.

2. Save money. Glasses and contact lenses cost money. If fact, it's a considerable expanse. Let's do the math: a box of contact lenses costs about $20 and lasts for two weeks (hopefully). That's $40 a month, $480 a year. If you are wearing glasses, there are high one-time expenses every time you need to buy new glasses. A new pair of glasses may cost thousands of dollars. All these expenses can be avoided if you do the Lasik eye surgery. You'll become just like “ordinary" people who don't ware glasses. They don't have these expenses and therefore can use their money for other things.

3. Sports activities. Have you ever tries to run, plan ball games, swim, box, wrestle of do any other type of sports activity with your glasses or contacts on? If you did, than you already know that it's not the most comfortable experience. Glasses and contacts limit your movements and many people who ware glasses refrain from certain sports activities because of their glasses. Having the surgery will allow you to engage in any sports you would like to.

As you can see, I believe that the advantages of getting rid of glasses are huge compared to the minor risks of the surgery and the one time cost associated with it. If you think so too, you may want to start making enquiries about the clinics that perform this surgery near your place of resident.
