Why Laser Vision Correction may be the best investment you make!

By Aris Konstantopolous

Laser Vision Correction is the world’s safest and most commonly performed procedure. It can eliminate the need for spectacles or contact lenses, whether your prescription is short-sightedness (myopia), long-sightedness (hypermetropia) or astigmatism. It can also be combined with reducing your need for reading glasses, depending on your age and visual requirements. This 30-minute procedure has multiple benefits and may prove to be your best investment!

No more glasses

The most obvious benefit of Laser Vision Correction is no longer needing distance glasses after the procedure. Wake up in the morning with clear vision, without trying to find your glasses by the bedside! You will no longer be able to use your glasses as an excuse for not pushing yourself hard during your workout! Also, you will not need to worry about your glasses getting wet and then misty when you walk indoors again! And when the sun is out, you can enjoy wearing the latest design in sunglasses!

No more contact lenses

If you wear contact lenses, you will be well aware of, or even fed up with, the daily routine of waking up with blurred vision, popping on your glasses, going to the bathroom to wash your hands, and then putting your contact lenses in. Followed by a similar routine at the end of the day! And lets not mention the times you have slept in your lenses because you were too tired or forgot to remove them!

Laser Vision Correction can not only save you time every day by sparing you from the above routine but also keep your eyes healthier. Contact lens wearers with dry eye and intolerance may benefit the most! Recent studies have shown that overall dry eye symptoms decrease following laser surgery. Laser Vision Correction can even reduce your risk of developing a contact lens related infection. Based on a Royal College of Ophthalmologists publication, each year 1 in 2500 daily contact lens wearers and 1 in 500 extended wear soft contact lens will develop a corneal infection or ulcer.

No more monthly or yearly expenses

Although Laser Vision Correction may sound like a costly option, contact lenses are not cheap and may even prove more expensive than laser surgery in the medium to long-term. In addition to the monthly cost of contact lenses and regular optician check-ups, purchasing a pair of glasses is also required, as contact lenses cannot be used safely all day every day.
