LASIK Top 5
1.) It's Safe
Laser Vision Correction is one of the most commonly performed elective procedures in the United States. Results of clinical studies indicate that the chances of having a vision-reducing complication are less than 1 percent. Recent studies have suggested that Laser Vision Correction is safer than contact lens wear. As with any surgery, laser vision correction involves a degree of risk. Dr. Vold gives patients the information regarding those risks and answers any questions that they may have.
2.) Patients typically describe it as “not painful"
Numbing drops and valium should keep you comfortable during the procedure. Recovery over the next few hours (LASIK/SMILE) or days (LASEK) is uncomfortable but not painful. The feeling is usually described as “gritty & scratchy… like you left your contacts in too long or scratched your eye."
3.) It's FAST & EASY with Minimal Down-Time
You start with a quick FREE consultation to make sure your eyes are approved for Laser Vision Correction, then we schedule your pre-op the same week as your procedure. The procedure typically lasts 15-20 minutes and the laser is usually only a few seconds per eye! For LASIK, you can resume most normal activities such as driving and working in 24-48 hours, or for SMILE or LASEK within 3-4 days following your procedure.
4.) If you were told NO before, You may now be a candidate
Technology has advanced and with our cutting-edge laser we can now treat the broadest range of vision imperfections ever – including mild to sever nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. In fact, more than 94% of the eligible population is now a potential candidate for Advanced Laser Vision Correction. So even if you’ve been turned down for laser vision correction in the past, you may be able to have Laser Vision Correction at Vold Vision.
5.) It's AFFORDABLE
The average person in contact lenses will spend $9,000 over 20 years. That’s a lot of money for something that is a hassle and annoying! Depending on the type of glasses you wear, the average person will spend $1,300 to $5,000 or more in glasses over the next 20 years. Ouch! Put it towards LASIK and you’ll end up SAVING money – how good of a deal is that?!?
