If you have less than perfect vision, then you may have considered laser eye surgery to correct the problem. For many people, LASIK eye surgery is the answer. Here are some signs that you should consider LASIK to correct your vision problems:
You Need Glasses or Contact Lenses
- If you use glasses or contact lenses to have clear vision, you might want to consider LASIK. This laser eye surgery can correct the problem that you have been using your corrective devices for. If your vision requires any sort of assisted method, you should at least consider LASIK.
You're Tired of Your Glasses or Contacts
- Some people don't mind wearing glasses or contact lenses, but others find them to be a hassle or uncomfortable to wear. If you are fed up with the hassle of glasses or contacts, consider laser eye surgery to fix the problem and end your dependence on glasses or contact lenses. You can change your vision permanently with LASIK and be free from glasses and contacts.
You Have Astigmatism
- LASIK can correct astigmatism, making it a great choice for people who suffer from this condition, with either nearsightedness or farsightedness. It can be hard for people with astigmatism to find contact lenses that fit correctly and comfortably. If you have astigmatism, LASIK eye surgery can correct the problem and end your battle with contacts.
You Have Realistic Expectations
- As with any other surgery, to be a good candidate for LASIK, it’s important that you have realistic expectations about the results. Your individual results will be determined by your unique vision issues, and you need to understand that there still may be limitations that even LASIK can't correct. Discuss your possible outcomes with your eye surgeon and make sure that you have an accurate picture of what your future holds, then consider LASIK as an option.
