Here’s Why Vision Correction Is the Best Gift to Give Yourself in the New Year

For many people, the holidays mean gift exchanges, which means you’ll probably be getting and giving a lot of various presents. There’s nothing like a thoughtful present from a loved one, but there’s also nothing like choosing a gift to give yourself.

After all, you know yourself best. After a long year, you deserve to treat yourself and give yourself the best gift ever: a laser vision correction procedure in the new year!

Whether you go with LASIK or other popular alternatives like PRK or an implantable contact lens, vision correction is truly the gift that keeps on giving. You won’t just be able to enjoy it during the holidays. Instead, it’ll provide you with visual freedom for years to come.

Keep reading for just a few more reasons why a vision correction procedure like LASIK is the ultimate gift to give yourself in the new year!

Increase Your Self Confidence

Many people that wear glasses and contact lenses feel like their self-esteem takes a hit. When you choose a procedure like LASIK, you can increase your self-confidence by looking good and seeing better than ever before.

You can also say so long to getting hung up on dirty glasses, lenses fogging up, or contact lenses that dry out your eyes. You can do away with all those minor irritations with vision correction and spend more time doing the things you love with the people you love.

Visual freedom is excellent for being home with family and friends for the holidays, but it’s also great for work. You can get a leg up by correcting your vision no matter your career.

Enhancing your eyesight means you’ll be able to see 20/20 or better while reducing the distractions that come from frustrating eyewear. You’ll also have more freedom to mix up your look while making a fantastic first impression on anyone new you meet.

Visual freedom allows you to reinvent your image or be more confident in your existing style!

Rake in the Savings

Did you know that getting LASIK can save you money over time? It may seem impossible that you’ll save more by spending money on a procedure like LASIK.

But it’s true. Not only can you usually pay for the vision correction procedure using one of the affordable payment plans that we offer at Williamson Eye Center, but you can even save yourself money in the long run.

When you don’t have to wear contacts or glasses anymore, it means you no longer have to spend money on them. That also means you don’t have to purchase any of their associated accessories like glasses cases, contact lens solutions, or even prescription sunglasses.

Think of the savings right there! All the money you would have spent adds up in the years following your choice to undergo vision correction if you qualify for it. While having something like LASIK may seem like a lot initially, think of it as an investment.

If you’re nervous that LASIK may not fit in your budget, you can always choose a payment plan that comes with flexible monthly payments. Most patients pay off their LASIK procedure in only two years.

You don’t have to think about how you’ll save up to pay for LASIK by choosing a payment plan. Instead, you can get LASIK now and enjoy your clear new vision while you pay it off.

Cuddle Up

Snuggling up inside is one of the best parts of winter. But it can be less than ideal to cuddle when you’re wearing glasses.

If you’re wearing contact lenses, there’s always the danger of falling asleep with them in and waking up with irritated eyes. It’s much easier to cuddle in front of a warm fireplace without glasses or contacts.

You’ll even avoid having your glasses fog up when you sip a mug of piping hot cocoa.

There’s nothing like a roaring fire when it’s cold, even if we’re not experiencing a snowy winter wonderland in Louisiana. But breaking out the wood for the fireplace can be a drag for anyone who wears contact lenses.

The smoke can dry out your eyes when you’re also wearing contacts. But that’s no longer an issue when you have total visual freedom.

When you get a procedure like LASIK, you may be surprised by how quickly you recover. In the days and weeks after the procedure, your vision will only continue to improve, leaving you with crisper and more vibrant eyesight.

Most patients find they can go back to work the next day. There’s also nothing wrong with taking an extra day or two to relax at home with family and friends.

Everything you do after LASIK, even reading a book or watching your favorite show, will seem better when your vision no longer has any boundaries.

A Lifetime of Better Vision

The best thing about vision correction is that it’s permanent. Laser eye surgeries like LASIK and PRK all change the shape of your eye to correct refractive errors like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.

Correcting these provides you with the clearer vision you’ve always craved. LASIK works because it reshapes the cornea, meaning you can look forward to decades of crystal clear vision.

Reshaping the cornea doesn’t prevent the onset of age-related eye conditions like presbyopia and cataracts since LASIK only treats refractive errors.

If a permanent procedure sounds like it’s too big of a commitment, reversible procedures like the Visian ICL are another option. The Visian ICL is an implanted contact lens that you can have removed whenever you want. The ICL provides you with the same quality of vision that something like LASIK does, but it’s also reversible if you decide to have it taken out.

With LASIK and so many other highly advanced and effective vision correction surgeries on the market, you’re sure to find the best one for you. You can give yourself the best gift ever in the new year when you do.
