Over the past two decades, LASIK has become a popular way for those with poor vision to get rid of the worry and annoyance of wearing corrective lenses. However, some people struggle with the idea of the surgery or the cost involved. If you’re on the fence about the procedure, here are just a few reasons why you’ll love LASIK.
1. It’s Not as Expensive as You Think
If you have a job with great vision insurance, you may have to pay little out of pocket or even nothing out of pocket to get LASIK. However, not everyone is lucky enough to have such insurance. As such, many avoid the procedure as they budget or balance their finances.
But if you don’t have vision insurance, LASIK is still not as expensive as you think. With the ability to use pre-tax dollars in a Health Savings Account or Flexible Spending Account, you can offset some of the cost and enjoy tax benefits at the same time.
2. Your Game Will Improve
Whether you love playing tennis, basketball, or even e-sports, great vision is essential. But if you’ve started to hit your forehand into the net or your free throw game is in shambles, you’ll love the benefits you get with LASIK.
While corrective lenses or glasses can help your game, LASIK gives you crystal-clear vision without the hindrances of contacts or eyeglasses. Not only will you see the ball, hoop, or opponent better, but you don’t have to worry about dropping your eyewear or getting your glasses knocked away.
3. Enjoying a Bit of Hanky-Panky
According to numerous studies, the act of lovemaking has more physicality than scientists anticipated. While touch is obviously a large part of human intimacy, research has shown that vision is the number one arousal factor in men. In women, it plays a secondary role but is still a vital part of the overall experience.
If you want to take your intimate sessions to the next level or just get in the mood more often, LASIK can give you the vision you need to enjoy a bit of extra hanky-panky.
4. It’s a Permanent Solution
In other facets of your life, how often is a temporary solution tolerated? You wouldn’t replace half the roof of your house or only change half the oil out of your car, so why do the same with your vision?
With LASIK, you’re not only getting better vision, but you’re also getting a permanent solution. In a vast majority of patients, LASIK fixes their problems for a lifetime. A small percentage may need a follow-up adjustment after 10 to 20 years, but it’s a small price to pay for something that gives you a better quality of life.

As a parent, friend, or sibling, you probably give loads of time to those most important to you. While that’s an integral part of being human, you may not always give something back to yourself.

When you weigh the options, you’ll undoubtedly love the new you.
