Life Hack – LASIK Saves Time

At Kugler Vision in Omaha, we want to let you in on a little life hack: LASIK saves time. How long does it take you to put in contact lenses? Contacts are a waste of time. Don’t believe us? See for yourself how much time you may be wasting.

Average Time Spent on Contact Lenses

One Year

  • The average person who wears contacts spends two minutes per day putting them in and taking them out.
    • That’s 730 minutes – more than 12 hours and 15 minutes – wasted each year dealing with contacts.


  • Americans on average live to be 78, and the average age to get contact lenses is 11 – that’s 67 years in contact lenses if you never choose to correct your vision with a LASIK procedure! This means that over a lifetime, you could waste:
    • 48,910 minutes – more than 815 hours – putting in and taking out your contacts. That’s nearly 34 days!

And that time just accounts for your daily routine. There is also the time spent buying contacts and solution or packing it for a trip.

Spend Your Time Wisely – You Only Live Once

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease and Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 40 million Americans 18 and older wear contact lenses. Stop wasting time with contacts. What could you do that is more productive or fulfilling with 12 extra hours of free time in a year or more than a month over your lifetime?

What Would You Do With More Time?
