3 Reasons Why LASIK is an Investment in Your Vision

Posted on by Maria Afonso in iLASIK, Technology, Vision

LASIK is the permanent vision correction procedure for common vision problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. It is a popular procedure for a number of reasons, but never having to wear glasses and/or contact lenses again is a major one. Even though thousands of Canadians have had LASIK to correct their vision, there are still many more who choose to rely on glasses and contacts instead. The reason for this gap has to do with the fact that many people are fearful – of the procedure itself and the cost. We’re here to assure you that when it comes to LASIK, there’s absolutely nothing to fear!

Here are 3 reasons why we think LASIK is the best investment you can make in your vision:

  1. The Cost Savings of LASIK

Many people think of LASIK as an expensive treatment that they would like to have done – if they could afford it. However, not only is the cost of LASIK reasonable, but you actually save money by having it done.

At first glance the cost of LASIK may seem like a lot, but keep in mind that LASIK is designed to be a one-time procedure. When you compare the cost of glasses and contact lenses over a lifetime with LASIK, it’s significantly more than the cost of LASIK. Depending on factors such as your age and the type of lenses you require, the cost and maintenance of glasses and contact lenses can add up quickly, especially if you wear both on a regular basis. In addition, designer frames can cost hundreds of dollars. If you’re like most people, you probably like to replace your glasses once every couple of years. However, it will only take a few years to recover the cost of LASIK by not having to purchase glasses or contact lenses.

In addition, we don’t ever want the cost of LASIK to get in the way of your potential for perfect vision. This is why we offer a variety of financing and payment plans such as LASIK for as low as $83/month and LASIK starting at $500 per eye. We can help you find a plan that’s convenient and fits in with your budget. We’re committed to ensuring that every patient can experience the life-changing benefits of LASIK.

  1. The Value in Clear Vision

LASIK is an investment in your vision because there is plenty of value in having clear vision. Imagine life without ever having to wear glasses or contact lenses again. Combine this with the cost savings of LASIK and it’s easy to see that it is one of the best elective procedures. We assure you it will be one of the best decisions you’ll ever make! After all, enjoying clear vision without glasses and/or contact lenses is priceless!
