Is LASIK Surgery Right For You?

Thinking about LASIK surgery? If so, you've probably talked to friends and family members who have had the procedure about their experience. You've done plenty of research. You've checked out various doctors and clinics, and asked for testimonials from their clients. You're likely aware of the pros and cons.

Still, we want to make sure you've considered the basics: your age, overall health, the risks, and the costs involved. Let us help you make the best, and right, decision. Before deciding on LASIK surgery, think about points: 

How old are you?
LASIK is not recommended for anyone younger than 18, as   vision can change dramatically during the adolescent years. If you’re older than 40 and struggling with blurry vision, solutions like reading glasses could be a much better option. 

How’s your overall health?
If you are pregnant, have dry eye syndrome, have large pupils or thin corneas, or if you have other conditions such as diabetes, autoimmune disease, or collagen vascular disease, consult with your physician to evaluate whether LASIK is a viable option for you. 

Consider the risks.
This is a surgery that, like any medical procedure, comes with risks. Post-surgical risks with LASIK include dry eyes, under-corrections or over-corrections in vision, glare, halos and double vision, as well as vision loss or other changes. 

Consider the costs.
Let us help you with this one. If LASIK surgery is right for you, give us a call. We’ll look over your current plan or a future plan that provides you with the right coverage. We’ll also compare and contrast different plans, so you receive the best value. We’ve done the research and are here to help!
