Why LASIK Is The Best Holiday Gift

Is there any better gift than one that can benefit the receiver for years to come? Why give something they’ll forget about by next year when you could give a gift that keeps on giving?

LASIK vision correction is one such gift. It’s a quick and straightforward procedure, but it continues to give the gift of clear sight for a lifetime.

Keep reading to learn why LASIK is the best holiday gift!

What is LASIK?

LASIK is the most well-known vision correction procedure in the world. It is not the only vision correction procedure, but more people have heard of it than the others.

That’s because it’s straightforward, effective, and has a quick recovery time. For those reasons, it gets used more often by eye doctors to correct a patient’s vision than any other procedure.

A LASIK procedure begins with anesthetic eye drops to numb your eyes. Once the drops take effect and your eyes can’t feel anything, the procedure can begin.

First, your surgeon creates a flap in the outer layer of your cornea, called the epithelium. They roll this flap to the side to access the thicker middle layers of corneal tissue below it.

The flap gets placed back over your eye at the end of the procedure. Next, your surgeon uses a laser to remove small pieces of tissue from the middle of your cornea.

Removing this tissue creates a more uniform cornea shape, which accurately refracts light onto your retina. This enhanced focusing power gives you crisp eyesight without glasses or contacts.

Once your surgeon has fixed the shape of your cornea, they place the flap back over your eye, and you can go home to rest. The entire procedure takes less than thirty minutes, and you will likely have improved vision within hours, if not days.

Why is LASIK A Great Gift?

LASIK is a quick procedure, but its benefits last forever. It is permanent vision correction.

That means after getting LASIK, whoever you gift it to, no longer needs glasses or contacts. They can see the world through their own eyes.

Plus, LASIK saves you money after you get it. That’s because you no longer need glasses and contacts after LASIK. And that means you no longer need to spend money on everything associated with them.

All the money spent on the costs of glasses and contacts goes right into your pocket. Or, in this case, into the pocket of your lucky gift receiver.

You can give them visual freedom for life, which is incredible to give somebody. But, you also can provide them with a gift that actually saves them money, month after month, year after year.
