With the New Year upon us, is it finally time to achieve the glasses-free vision you've been dreaming about? LASIK surgery re-shapes the cornea – painlessly and quickly – in order to correct the way light rays are bent by your eyes, thereby creating clear vision. Millions of people have gotten LASIK. To discuss your candidacy for this procedure, please arrange a consultation with Dr. Chris Walton in Mobile by calling 251-341-3385.
If you have a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) or Health Savings Account (HSA), LASIK may be a qualified medical expense in 2019. Under such circumstances, the beginning of the year may be a great time to use money from your health accounts to get the LASIK procedure you've been wanting.
The Benefits of Being Lens-Free
Our patients report seemingly infinite benefits to getting LASIK, with some of the most common being:
- Swim, camp, hike, run, play sports, all without glasses or contact lenses. Active people love the ability to get up and go without first worrying about finding their glasses or putting in their contacts.
- Save time in the morning and before bed, even if it's only a few minutes. LASIK patients adore the feeling of waking up and going right into their day. There's no fumbling for glasses before you can see clearly. See the clock and your surroundings clearly as soon as you open your eyes! If you wear contact lenses, you'll be spared the routine of placing them and removing them.
- Save money in the long run. If LASIK results in eliminating the necessity for daily glasses or contacts, then you will no longer have to purchase new lenses like you do now. In the long run, these savings can really add up.
- Feel more confident. Many people report feeling a lift in self-confidence after getting LASIK. Perhaps you've never liked the way you looked in glasses or simply felt burdened by having to wear corrective lenses. With LASIK, you can free yourself from lenses and feel more comfortable moving through the day.
Of course, the only way to know if the procedure will benefit you is to arrange a consult with Dr. Walton.
The Track Record of LASIK Itself
If you are trying to decide if LASIK is the right choice for you in 2019, we'd also like to point out its long-standing safety and effectiveness profile. This laser surgery has high rates of success and low rates of revision. Dr. Walton's Allegretto Wave laser procedure has thus far achieved at least 20/20 vision results for 100 percent of patients who have received it! Some patients have achieved better than 20/20.
Discuss What is Right for You as an Individual
Regardless of the historical and general benefits of LASIK, it's important to find out if it is right for you. Each person has their own expectations, goals and concerns, and Dr. Walton is personally committed to matching good LASIK candidates with the procedure, and providing alternative recommendations for those people who are not good candidates. First, he wants to meet you in a consultation to discuss your vision and what you would like to achieve. Rely on Dr. Walton for clear and honest information about your options.
