Laser Eye Surgery

Common Reasons for Laser Eye Surgery

The Laser Center of Coral Gables is the leading laser eye surgery center in Coral Gables, Florida, and performs a variety of surgical procedures that improve vision. Our goal is to help our patients improve their eyesight without the use of glasses or contacts. Our  surgeons are well-trained in these procedures and can safely  offer these surgeries to patients  that qualify for the procedure. 


Here are seven reasons why people opt for laser eye surgery:

1. Convenience

Glasses and contact lenses require constant maintenance, whether that means cleaning them, taking them off and putting them on, repurchasing new pairs, etc. Many people opt to have laser eye surgery so they can save time and aggravation from wearing glasses or inserting and removing contact lenses every day.

2. Contact Lens Problems

Some people may experience discomfort or pain while wearing contact lenses. If contact lenses become a problem, many people choose to have laser vision correction.

3. Sports

Glasses or contacts don’t always mix when it comes to sports. Active individuals may find that wearing glasses or contacts becomes burdensome. Many people decide that laser eye surgery is the best fit for a lifestyle full of sports and physical activity.

4. Career

Some people choose to have laser eye surgery because of their jobs as athletes, chefs, teachers, and many others. They find that not having to wear glasses and contacts suits their lifestyle better.

5. Cost 

Generally, choosing to have laser eye surgery may be cost-effective for those that must continuously replace or maintain their glasses or contact lenses. This is especially true for younger patients.

6. Appearance

Some people don’t like the way they look in glasses and don’t want to or simply can’t wear contact lenses. For these individuals, laser eye surgery is a great choice.

7. Vision Problems

Ultimately anyone with vision problems in Coral Gables can receive laser eye surgery from our eye doctors. This surgery reshapes the surface of the eye to correct curvatures and allows individuals to see clearly without the use of glasses or contact lenses.
