The True Meaning of (Visual) Freedom

Published by Lance Kugler, MD on July 3, 2023

We have much to marvel at in the great U.S. of A. Who wouldn’t want to see every inch of it in all its glory?

LASIK has freed millions of eyes to experience the world better than ever before. But there are benefits of LASIK you may not have anticipated. Here are four surprising ways LASIK can redefine visual freedom.

1. You will liberate your self-confidence.

For millions who are enjoying life after LASIK, not only is their face free of bulky prescription eyeglasses and often scratchy contact lenses, but they’re released from the worry of it all.

There is no more packing corrective eyewear and supplies for a trip—or, worse yet, forgetting to. No more steamy lenses on the way in and outdoors. No more stashing glasses and contacts before you take to the water.

The confidence that comes with these freedoms is one result of LASIK that comes as a pleasant surprise to many patients.

2. Declare independence from some of your allergy symptoms.

When you’re no longer constantly putting in and taking out contact lenses, you can reduce the risk of allergic reactions. That’s because you touch your face less, reducing the amount of pollen and other allergens you transfer from your hands to your eyes and nose. The same goes for eyeglasses, to a lesser extent.

It’s also important to know that LASIK completely eliminates painful contact lens intolerance (CLI) and eye infections from contaminated lenses and lens solutions.

3. Gain a better view of America the Beautiful.

It goes without saying, LASIK helps you see your world more clearly than any eyeglasses or contact lens prescription can. What you may not know is that you may also gain additional lines of sight, such as broader peripheral vision, which will help you take in more of our nation’s wonders.

Patients also report better night vision after LASIK, meaning around-the-clock visual freedom.4. Save masses of money yearning to breathe free.

Eyeglasses could cost you up to $25,000 over a lifetime—and perhaps more for contact lenses.

By comparison, the average cost of LASIK in the United States is $2500 – $3500 per eye. Once your surgery is paid, all that money you would have spent on eyewear stays in your own pocket. Imagine the great American adventures you could have!
