Before any significant procedure, there is some research that you should do on your own. Of course, we are more than willing to answer any questions that you may have, but some of these LASIK questions to ask can only be answered yourself…
- Do I know my surgeon?-Knowing the person who is providing your care is important. At Eye LASIK Midland, we take a unique approach. We allow patients to work with their own eye doctor for pre and post operation visits, only being referred to us for the surgery itself.
- Am I eligible?-We can tell you that! If you have a vision problem, we can most likely help you! By requesting a free consultation, we can qualify you and discuss your procedure options.
- What vision problem do I have?-What vision problem(s) do you suffer from? Are you nearsighted (myopic) or farsighted (hyperopia)? Do you suffer from astigmatism?
Take a look at these LASIK questions to ask YOURSELF.
At Eye LASIK Midland, we have a procedure for YOU! However, it is good to know your individual condition to be able to learn more about your procedure results. For example, the more nearsighted you are, the more of a chance you’ll need a repeat (refinement) procedure.
- Can I afford it?-Only you know your personal finances and if you are able to afford a LASIK procedure. However, at Eye LASIK Midland, we have affordable payment plans and INTEREST FREE financing. Additionally, you may be able to use your Health Savings Account to pay for your procedure. Check with your provider to find out.
- Why do you want to have this surgery?-LASIK brings you clearer vision and can (and will) change your life. You will enjoy that change much more if you are making that change for yourself.
So before having LASIK, ask yourself those LASIK questions. The answers to those questions may help you determine if you are ready for LASIK. If not, learn more in our blog section. If you think you are ready, or if you’re at least ready to meet with us to discuss your eligibility, request a free consultation HERE! We can’t wait to start you on your path to clear vision!
While summer may have “unofficially” started for most of us, it’s just a few days away! It’s time for long days at the pool, backyard barbeques, weekends on the lake, and sunny summer vacations. Of course, at Eye LASIK Midland, we believe ANY time is the time for clear vision. However, let us tell you why we think SUMMER is the perfect time for LASIK.
Clear vision without glasses or contacts will always be more convenient than having to remember to put your contacts in or wearing those bulky glasses on your face. But, picture this…
You’ve spent weeks planning your family’s summer vacation to the beach. The kids are excited and awake at the crack of dawn to head down to the sand, white-capped waves, and sunny rays. (Unfortunately, you can’t see the kids until you put your contacts in!) After getting up and going, you make your way down to the beach. Ahh, finally!
Summertime is the perfect time for LASIK!
You spray the kids with sunscreen and you head straight for the waves. The water is perfect! The kids splashing and laughing distracts you, and you don’t notice the massive wave that knocks you over and under the water. But, you can’t complain! I mean, after all, you’re on summer vacation at the beach! But wait. Something’s missing…
That massive wave caused you to lose your contacts. There’s no chance of finding them now, they’re one of the endless lost items of the ocean. “No big deal,” you think, “My glasses are in the beach bag!” You jog up to your bag and search for your glasses. Unfortunately, they weren’t in the case, so all the beach toys crushed them. Bummer.
Looks like you’re blind the rest of summer vacation…
See Your Summer Clearly
Okay, our example may be a bit on the extreme side, but we’ve heard stories like it before! Special occasions or fun vacations are ruined by poor vision. Wouldn’t it be a shame if you couldn’t enjoy all the events of summer due to your lack of clear vision; or the inconvenience of glasses or contacts?
We don’t want that to happen to you! See your summer CLEARLY. With LASIK, it’s possible! Get started by requesting a FREE consultation. Someone will contact you to set up a convenient time to qualify you for one of our vision correction procedures, learn more about the procedure, and discuss your financing options. Until then, check out the rest of our blogs to learn more about LASIK!
When considering any elective procedure, most people research the success rate of the procedure they are considering. They look into the risks and benefits associated, both short and long term. In general, they want to know if the surgery is worth having. One important factor of determining if a surgery is “worth it,” is the success rate. Wondering what the LASIK success rate is? Trying to determine in LASIK is “worth it?” Read on.
According to the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, LASIK has a 96% success rate, meaning 96% of patients achieve 20/20 vision or better.
LASIK Success Rate
Remarkable, isn’t it? A 96% LASIK success rate!
So, in short, yes, LASIK is “worth it.” Your chances are very good that you will be in that 96%, achieving 20/20 (or better) vision.
Of course, every life changing procedure comes with risks. To find out more, check out our blog, Common LASIK Concerns. Be aware also, that even though LASIK is consider to be a “permanent procedure that corrects vision problems,” some patients have to wear reading glasses as their eyes age. Even still, LASIK is definitely worth it.
