You’ve been wearing glasses all your life. You tried contact lenses, but the time and expense of caring for them and the discomfort got to be too much, so you stopped. You’re used to your glasses, but they fog up, get soaked with rain, and collect dust and smudges- you need a special towel just to clean them, or you’ll put yet another scratch on them! Don’t you wish you could just see clearly without them?
Well, the good news is you can. Laser eye surgery, (LASIK) is the answer. Over 3,000 Australians a year undergo the procedure with amazingly positive results. Since the technology’s inception, eye LASIK prices (known as เลสิคตาราคา in Thai) have dropped dramatically, so cost is not a barrier. It can change your life, giving you the freedom to do things your old glasses would have kept you from. Let’s examine what the procedure can do for you, and save you money, too!
Convenience and Cost
Prescription eyewear is cumbersome and requires daily maintenance. Have you ever wiped your glasses with a serviette, or soaked your contacts in tap water in a pinch and come to greatly regret it? Just add up the costs of maintaining and replacing your corrective lenses over time and you will be surprised at just how expensive they really are!
Swimming and Sports
Have you ever accidentally dived into the pool, but forgot to take your contacts out first? They’re gone forever, invisible needles in a watery haystack. How about when you were out playing your favourite sport and your glasses got so fogged up you couldn’t even see the ball? Worse yet, they fell off and you stepped on them during the heat of the match- time to buy a new pair, and they are not cheap!
Yes, even the simple act of having an afternoon kip can be trouble. Falling asleep with your glasses on can damage both you and your pair if you should roll over on them. Even worse, sleeping while wearing contact lenses causes severe drying, just taking them out afterwards can be excruciatingly painful, and risks the chance of damaging your eyes! Wouldn’t it be nice to not have to worry about that when you’re sleepy and don’t want to be bothered with having to manage prescription eyewear?
Well, the answer to these problems is simple- LASIK eye surgery will free you from the tyranny of prescription lenses forever!
