Get Rid Of Your Reading Glasses – Choose LASIK and Free Your Vision

If you’ve visited your Optometrist because you are suffering from fuzzy or blurred vision, and have been diagnosed with near or far-sightedness, you have several options for vision correction. Eyeglasses and LASIK (laser eye surgery) are two of these options. Here’s how they measure up. • Cost: In the short-term, LASIK costs are much higher than glasses because it is a once-off surgical procedure. However, in the long-term, LASIK is the more cost-effective choice. This is because your glasses will have to be updated at least once a year and frames carry a significant cost. Even if you choose to keep the same frames, your lenses can become very expensive according to the types and thickness you require. In the Florida climate, it’s also best to have a second pair in the form of prescription sunglasses to preserve and protect your eyes. • Comfort: While the surgery does include some discomfort and a few days of recovery time, this is a minor and temporary issue for many patients. Eyeglasses on the other hand can become very uncomfortable and inconvenient for patients, especially if they are finding themselves having to go for multiple adjustments. • Personal style: This is where personal choice becomes important. Many people love their glasses because they are a great way to accessorize and add character to their style, but others prefer to have the advantages of naturally perfect vision that LASIK delivers. • Safety: LASIK and other laser eye surgery procedures have an incredibly low risk of complications, and results are often above what patients expect. In fact, it is the recommended procedure for astronauts, professional athletes and celebrities who suffer with vision impairment because it is so safe.

How Innovative Technology Is Making Corrective Eye Surgery Even Better

How Innovative Technology Is Making Corrective Eye Surgery Even Better

Laser eye surgery for vision correction has been around for a lot longer than many people realize. In fact, it dates back to the 1970s, where the invention of the excimer laser was first used in vision correction at Colombia University by researcher Stephen L. Trokel. Since then, technology has advanced at a rapid pace, bringing significant changes to the industry and great benefits to patients seeking the very best treatments for their eye disorders and conditions. Reducing risks: Thanks to the advanced technology used at leading eye clinics, including The Laser Center of Coral Gables, eye surgery is safer than ever before. Not only do eye doctors have the experience and equipment to ensure the safest possible experience, they also have the ability to discern which patients are most suited to the different treatment options based on their medical history in order to guarantee the best results. Precision results: With the very high degree of accuracy and stability in cutting-edge lasers, eye surgeons are able to do delicate work with microscopic precision, making treatment more effective and less invasive for the patient. For example, studies have found that cataract surgery done with a laser offers 10 times more precise results than the same treatment done with traditional surgical tools, providing patients with dramatically improved results. Improved recovery time: One of the most common concerns for patients considering eye surgery is the amount of time they will spend recovering. With high-precision laser surgery, patients can return to their normal routine within a fraction of a traditional recovery period. Depending on your lifestyle and the surgery you require, you may recover in a matter of days.
