Why Millennials Should Invest in LASIK

Posted By Key-Whitman Eye Center || 25-Jun-2015

Is LASIK eye surgery something you consider out of reach due to your age or financial status? When you take time to look at the benefits of LASIK, you might be surprised to learn that laser eye surgery is an ideal option for young adults.

Here are five reasons young people should consider LASIK eye surgery:

Quick recovery. You don’t need to have a bunch of vacation time saved up before you go in for LASIK. Healing does vary from one person to the next, but most people are able to return to work the next day, once they’ve had their one-day post op visit.

Little out-of-pocket expense. If you have a flex savings account (FSA) or health savings account (HSA) through your employer, you may pay little or nothing out of pocket, as LASIK is an approved FSA or HSA expense. If you do pay for LASIK out of pocket, the cost is reasonable, and flexible payment options are available at Key-Whitman with the ALPHAEON CREDIT card offered by Comenity Capital Bank.

Safety. As with any surgical procedure, there are some risks, but LASIK is considered an extremely safe eye surgery and the potential complications are few. The most common complications or side effects of LASIK are dry eyes and seeing a glare or halo around lights. Key-Whitman uses IntraLase technology, which further reduces these risks.

Convenience. No matter how long you’ve worn them, let’s face it—glasses and contact lenses are inconvenient. If you are physically active and enjoy sports, exercise or spending time outdoors, LASIK gives you freedom to enjoy the things you love.

Confidence. Although glasses have come a long way when it comes to fashion, for many people, wearing glasses can still affect confidence and self-esteem. If dependence on glasses has held you back and made you self-conscious, LASIK can give a boost to your confidence.

How much money have you spent on glasses or contact lenses over the years? LASIK eye surgery is a safe, convenient procedure that can spare you that expense while boosting your confidence.
