Out of all of the great questions that our patients ask us about LASIK, the one that we hear the most is probably “What can I expect from the post-LASIK recovery?” Since blade-free, all-laser LASIK is a surgical procedure, many people tend to assume that there is a lengthy recovery period. That isn’t the case. Most people can return to their regular routines the day after their procedure.

There’s a slight chill in the California air, which signals that winter holidays are just around the corner. You will likely have some extra time off work and some fun events on your schedule.

If you’ve been thinking about getting blade-free, all-laser LASIK, now is the ideal time! Here are five reasons why you should consider scheduling your LASIK procedure this holiday season:

Driving is arguably the most popular mode of transportation in America. In fact, there are over 200 million licensed drivers in the United States. From embarking on a long road trip to running a few errands, driving is a big part of our daily lives.

It’s no secret that driving is a very visual activity. As a driver, you have to be able to see clearly to keep yourself and others safe on the road. That’s why the DMV performs a vision test when you receive or renew your license. Blade-free, all-laser LASIK can improve your driving experience.

The term LASIK is generally used to describe any form of laser eye surgery that is performed to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Today, it would be hard to find someone who hasn’t heard of LASIK, because the procedure is a safe and effective way to improve visual acuity and eliminate the need for glasses and contacts.

There are many reasons why our patients choose to undergo blade-free, all-laser LASIK. Glasses can get in the way of physical activities, steam up when you drink something hot, and make it difficult to wear sunglasses. The alternative, contact lenses, can also be a hassle. And aside from the burden of taking them in and out every day and remembering to pack your solution every time you go on a trip, contacts can actually cause some complications.

The potential risks associated contact lenses include:

If you wear glasses or contacts, you probably wish that you could have crystal clear vision without them. The good news is that blade-free, all-laser LASIK can eliminate your need for corrective eyewear. Millions of people have improved their vision through laser vision correction surgery, and 98% of our patients achieve 20/20 (or at least 20/25) vision after their initial procedure.
