Why Laser Vision Correction?
For those of you who have worn glasses and/ or contact lenses for most of your life know all too well the inconvenience of wearing glasses and contact lenses. From losing or breaking your glasses; to having your glasses slip off your nose or fall from your face, it is a hassle. Sure the materials today are lighter and the frame styles are more fashionable, but you still have to clean them and depending on your prescription, you tend to fuss with them, taking them on and off; it is a hassle.
Then there are contact lenses, you put them in and forget them, or do you? Hopefully, you’re not like some contact lenses wearers. They put their contact lenses in and leave them until they have to take them out, which usually means, when they cannot see out of them anymore because protein deposits have built up on their lenses or they have become so dry they cannot see with them in. Their dependence on contact lenses to see 20/20 24 hours a day has caused harm to their eyes.
Laser vision correction is the answer for them. Today, their eyes are healthy, their vision is better than 20/20 and the only glasses that they wear are designer sun glasses! But as much as we would like you to benefit as they have from laser vision correction, please understand that laser vision correction is not a commodity, it is a medical procedure and even though it is one of the safest procedures in all of medicine it is not for everyone.
