Are you an ideal candidate for Lasik eye treatment?
It’s eye-opening how much people are spending on glasses and contacts each year (approximately $16 billion each year for glasses and lenses, according to the Vision Council of America). If you are tired of shelling out money every few months or once a year for glasses or contacts then you may be wondering whether you should turn to our New York, NY, ophthalmologist Dr. Christopher Coad and his medical team Dr. Jay Yoon and Dr. Sherry Liu for Lasik.
What is Lasik?
Lasik has been around for decades now, and it’s a safe, permanent refractive laser surgery designed to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and even astigmatism. Here at Chelsea Eye Ophthalmology in Manhattan New York, we’ve been performing Lasik on everyone from pilots to Olympic athletes. This painless procedure is performed right here in our office and it usually takes no more than 10 minutes per eye. Once Lasik is performed, most patients will never need to worry about glasses or contacts again.
How Lasik Saves Time and Money
Think about how much you spend on contact lenses, glasses, or both each year. While Lasik may cost more upfront, this price will negate all the recurring expenses of annual vision checkups to renew or change your current prescription, as well as purchasing new glasses or a year’s worth of contact lenses. If you have a health savings account (HSA), this can also help you put money aside to pay for Lasik.
While saving money is always great, one benefit that you might not have thought about is the time you’ll save. You won’t have to worry about the minutes spent every morning cleaning and putting contacts in, as well as time spent taking contacts out and cleaning them in the evening. How often do you misplace your glasses? If you spent a good part of the day hunting down where you last left your glasses, Lasik can certainly save you time. After all, those minutes every day add up. How do you want to spend your time—do you want to spend it wrestling with contacts every morning or do you want to wake up and immediately be able to see?
