3 Reasons Why You Should Consider Laser Eye Surgery In 2020

Published on 2nd January 2020

With the clean slate that a new year provides, it’s only natural that we turn our minds to self-improvement. One of the most effective ways of giving your day-to-day life a positive, noticeable change is through laser eye surgery - breaking you free of the shackles and limitations that glasses and contact lenses can often provide. Here are three reasons why you should seriously consider laser eye surgery in 2020:

1. Save money long-term

To properly maintain both the health of your eyes and avoid further deterioration of your eyesight, there are constant costs involved as a glasses and contacts wearer.

Not only do you require regular checkups and frequent retesting, but there is also the costs of new frames, properly coated lenses and, for contact lens wearers, continual outgoings to ensure you’re never without a fresh pair. Over time, these costs can add up significantly - and there’s no way of avoiding them...unless you consider laser eye surgery. While admittedly a slightly higher cost short term, surgery could save you money in the long run.

2. Boost your confidence

Often, glasses wearers can feel self-conscious or unsure about their own appearance due to their frames. While contacts are an option, these can be expensive, some people may find them uncomfortable, and they’re not available to everybody. Some people admit to not wearing their glasses even when required, and the negative long-term harm that can be done to their eyesight is incredibly damaging.

By making an investment in themselves, many of our clients experience a real boost to their self-confidence post-surgery.

3. Avoid daily nuisances

Walking in the rain, lenses fogging, not being able to see in the shower, paying more for sunglasses, being uncomfortable watching 3D films at the cinema, struggling playing sport, valuable space in your handbag being taken up - and that’s not even scratching the surface.

These all may seem like trivial issues individually, but when stacked together, they really can make day-to-day life far more inconvenient than it ought to be. You will notice an immediate ease in your daily activities which you were being kept from before, and while others may not fully appreciate that, you certainly will.
