The title may be a tad misleading… we don’t want you to get completely new eyes! Hopefully you love the ones you have, but there is probably room for some improvement in your eyesight. Last year we focused on some good resolutions to make that will keep your eyes happy and healthy. We bet if you kept up with your resolution, your eyes are feeling wonderful by the end of 2014! We think this next year is the perfect time for you to take the next big step when it comes to your eyes.
LASIK it is! It may be something you’ve thought about before and been putting off, or something new to you. Either way, we think 2015 is the perfect time for you to take a deeper look into it as an option. You probably have some important questions, which is why we are here to help.
What is it?
LASIK (Laser Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis) is a laser vision correction procedure that provides an alternative to eyeglasses and contact lenses. The concept behind LASIK is simple – reshaping the front of the eye to change its focusing power. To perform LASIK surgery a laser is used underneath a corneal flap (in situ) to reshape the cornea (keratomileusis). The procedure alters the shape of the transparent front covering of the eye, otherwise known as the cornea.
Does it hurt?
The LASIK treatment has little to no discomfort. The doctor will put a few numbing drops into your eyes to make the procedure even more comfortable. Some pressure will be felt on and around the eye during the treatment, but you will experience little to no pain.
Is it scary?
LASIK may be scary to think about. Letting someone that close to our eyes with foreign objects is a terrifying thought. Until you come in to see us, that is. Our well-trained and highly skilled surgeons will make you as comfortable as possible while explaining everything to you in great detail. You may be afraid when you first walk in the office, but we are sure that once you sit down with us any fear will subside and you will be excited for your procedure and “new eyes”!
Is it expensive?
Many shy away from the thought of LASIK because they have the idea that it is extremely costly. Up front, seeing a cost of more than a thousand dollars,you may be worried that it is out of price range. Trust us, we completely understand. But take a moment to think about something… How much do you spend yearly on glasses or contact lenses? Add that up for five years and compare the costs. We bet it seems a little more feasible! If up front cost is still too steep, the great thing about our Crown Laser Center is that our staff will work with you on affordable monthly payment plans, with no interest for 12 months.
Am I a candidate?
The first step to answering this question would be to take the “Am I a Candidate Quiz.” You can also come in to see us. Consultations are absolutely no cost to you. Crown Laser Center’s trained staff will guide you through the process and figure out the best options for you, all for FREE!
Just imagine waking up in the morning, every morning, and not needing to clean your contacts or wipe down your glasses. Think of all the fun things you could do throughout the year without having to drag along glasses, cleaner, a case or getting something stuck in your contacts without solution to clean them! We’re picturing it now and boy does it look good… Hear from others who have had LASIK with us, or schedule your consultation now and see your life change!
