Lasik Surgery: 10 Seconds to Better Vision and a Better Life
How many things take just 10 seconds yet can truly change your life forever?
Saying “yes” to a proposal, accepting an exciting new job offer, or even something as wild as stepping out of an airplane to skydive — each can be a pivotal moment in life. What about correcting your vision with Lasik eye surgery?
Generally, most good things in life take time and effort to accomplish. Laser eye surgery has existed in various forms for over three decades. Over that time, the lasers, procedural technique, and the understanding of what it takes to get great outcomes all have improved. The result is the highly polished and refined procedure that we have today.
It literally takes about 10 seconds of laser time to reshape the cornea, correct your vision, and free you from the need to wear eyeglasses or contacts in order to see at distance. Lasik surgery can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.
What makes a good candidate for Lasik eye surgery? Stable vision correction that has not changed for several years, good eye health, stable systemic health, normal corneal thickness, a top of-of-the-line laser, and a skilled surgeon.
The most common thing I hear from people who have recently had Lasik surgery is “Why didn’t I do this years ago? What was I waiting for?” Are you interested in being set free from total dependence on distance glasses or contacts? It may be well worth checking out to see if you are a candidate.
