What are the top reasons you haven’t yet moved forward with LASIK? The top 2 reasons we hear most often are: Cost & Fear. Contacts are often seen as a safer choice and chosen over LASIK surgery. The reality? Contacts can end up costing you so much more money and can be incredibly unsafe when worn too much.
It’s pretty startling when you look at the data how likely it is to get a serious eye infection from contacts. How many times have we been in a hurry and simply did not use proper care when it came to our contacts. Daily contact lens wearers have a 1 in 100 chance of a serious eye infection, which increases when we don’t follow proper care. A study published in the Archives of Ophthalmology in October 2006, found that contact lens wearers have a one in 2,000 chance of significant visual loss from infection, whereas in LASIK surgery the chance is one in 10,000 cases. Recent advances in laser vision correction technology have yielded unsurpassed safety and visual outcomes.
We have a cost calculator that will allow you to see the cost effectiveness of LASIK versus continual contact lens wear. I bet you didn’t know that the average 30 year old will spend over 30K on contacts and glasses. That is a huge chunk of money. LASIK offers some great financing to keep this affordable for you in the short term while also saving you in the long term.
