IS LASIK PROCEDURE WORTH THE COST?January 7, 2014
LASIK or Laser-Assisted in situ Keratomileusis is one of today’s most effective, efficient and the most convenient type of refractive surgery for the correction of nearsighted, farsighted and astigmatism.
This is mostly performed by trained ophthalmologists, in which they use microkeratome or laser to reshape the eye’s cornea in order to correct and improve visual acuity and sharpness. Many visually challenged patients today prefer this kind of laser vision correction as it provides a permanent substitute to contact lenses and eyeglasses. In fact, over the last two years, more than 28 million procedures have been made worldwide and these figures show no signs of slowing.
The advantages of LASIK weigh more than the drawbacks it offer; Vision is corrected nearly instantaneously after or a day after the procedure. It uses no bandages or sutures after the process and around 97% of the patients who went through this procedure went home satisfied with their remedied vision.
The procedure may cost a little more than your usual contact lenses or corrective eyeglasses, but think about how much you can keep in the long run. In the end, LASIK definitely is worth the cost.
Here’s an infographic that will explain why LASIK is worth your outlay.
