If you’ve ever thought about having LASIK, you’re certainly in good company. Freedom from the hassles of glasses and contacts is something many people think about on the daily. And how annoying it is to wake up in the morning and not be able to see the clock on your nightstand until you feel around and locate your glasses. That’s just another thought people with poor vision have.
Founder and surgeon Dr. Harvey Carter has been delivering the most advanced eye surgery in Dallas, Texas, for more than 30 years and is considered one of the country’s top LASIK surgeons.
Also, glasses slipping down your sweaty nose at spin class. Annoying. Sweat in your contacts on your morning run? Really annoying (and painful!). Can’t see to put your mascara on without your glasses, but can’t actually put the mascara on while wearing said glasses. SUPER annoying.
You know what can help with all those annoyances? LASIK.
According to Market Scope, the popular laser vision correction procedure has been performed on over 10 million Americans since it first received FDA approval in 1999. Wow. That’s a lot of people pursuing improved vision, free from the restrictions of glasses and contacts.
Think about it. It’s 2020. Could there be a better year to finally take the leap and have LASIK? Right. We don’t think so either.
Let’s Talk a Little LASIK
LASIK (Laser-Assisted in-Situ Keratomileusis) is a type of refractive surgery commonly referred to as laser vision correction. It treats nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia) and astigmatism. If you’re wearing glasses and/or contacts, and you fall into one (or even two) of the above-mentioned categories, then LASIK may be the right choice for you.
LASIK works by changing the shape of your cornea, which changes the way images focus on the retina. It’s a two-step process: Creating a small flap on the cornea, and reshaping the corneal surface, all in just a few minutes!
