Young man who no longer needs glasses after LASIK surgery

Have you ever thought about getting LASIK? If you are nearsighted, farsighted, or have an astigmatism, this procedure can allow you to experience greater visual freedom.

According to the American Refractive Surgery Council, LASIK has the highest satisfaction rate of any optional procedure. From crisper vision to more convenience and improved self-confidence, the perks of LASIK are nearly endless.

Live Your Life with Less Hassle

Who doesn’t want more convenience and less hassle in their life? When you go years wearing glasses or contacts, you might not realize all of the little ways they can affect your life.

You have to keep them clean, reorder them, and be careful not to damage them. Not to mention, you can’t see clearly without them.

If you want to live a life less dependent on glasses or contacts, consider LASIK. Most patients no longer have to rely on visual aids in order to see for the majority of activities. 

This is because LASIK permanently reshapes the part of the eye that is causing blurry vision. Visual freedom is especially valuable when you are physically active. 

Whether you’re going for a hike at John James Audubon State Park, paddling at Pounds Hollow Recreation Area, or working out at home or your favorite gym, you won’t have to worry about your contacts becoming uncomfortable or your glasses getting in your way. 

See the Fall Foliage with Vivid Clarity

The fall season is one of the best times to immerse yourself in Evansville’s natural beauty. October and November are the peak viewing times to see the changing leaves in all their colorful splendor. Since recovery from LASIK is so fast, you can still have your vision corrected in time to enjoy this fall. 

As we enter into the fall months, the weather isn’t the only thing that gets crisper. With LASIK, your vision can be too! 

Once you have your vision corrected, take a short drive to New Harmonie State Park, a peaceful, picturesque park with several biking and hiking trails. Whichever trail you choose, the trees are sure to dazzle you with their varying hues. 

In fact, patients often find that their vision is even better after LASIK than it ever was with visual aids. 

Gif Yourself a Break from Alleries

Are you one of the many adults who suffer from allergies? From a stuffy, runny nose, to red, itchy eyes, allergy symptoms can turn a good day bad in an instant. They don’t just affect you in the spring, either.

In the fall months, ragweed, which grows in many places, including Evansville, is a common trigger. You may not realize it, but wearing contacts can actually make allergies worse. 

Allergens like dirt, dust, and pollen can collect on the surface of the lenses. Plus, you have to be extra careful not to transfer allergens from your hands to your eyes during insertion and removal. 

You might even find it uncomfortable to wear contacts at all when you’re experiencing allergy symptoms. One surprising benefit of LASIK is that it can reduce allergy symptoms. 

So, whether you’re exploring the Mesker Park Zoo and Botanic Garden or the Angel Mounds State Historic Site, you can leave your eyewear and allergies in the dust. 

Enjoy Evansville by Night

As much fun as it can be during the day, Evansville is a blast at night, with many options to relax, socialize, and have a good time. If you want to enjoy yourself to the fullest, LASIK can give you the confidence to do just that. 

For decades, LASIK has been enabling patients to feel their best. When you no longer have to wear glasses all the time, you feel more like yourself, whether you’re sipping a drink at the 7 Mile Lounge downtown, trying your luck at Bally’s, or grabbing a slice and a brew at Turoni’s. 

Put Some Money Back in your Pocket

LASIK is an investment in your vision that pays off in the long run. Unlike glasses or contacts, which require ongoing purchases, LASIK is a one-time procedure.

By correcting your vision with LASIK now, you avoid the cumulative costs of corrective lenses and supplies over the years to come. While the upfront cost of LASIK may seem high, it is more affordable over your lifetime than perpetual vision expenses.
