The idea of using glasses or contacts for vision correction is a technique that was invented over 700 years ago. If that's not reason enough to update correcting your vision, we have two more reasons:

• Improving Your Quality of Vision

• Enhancing Your Quality of Lifestyle

Although glasses and contacts serve their purpose well, they don't actually solve the problem at the source. Instead they mask the problem with a temporary solution and become just another thing to deal with on a daily basis.

Plus, the costs & maintenance of contacts and glasses are a constant expense.

Why Choose LASIK Over Glasses

Glasses are an irritation and inconvenience. They are prone to scratches, getting lost, fogging, and breaking, and they have to be replaced periodically. Even top name brand frames  are still the same technology Ben Franklin used.

Can you throw away your glasses forever after LASIK? The good news is that LASIK will have you seeing clearly for many years. The younger you are when you get LASIK, the longer you can be free from glasses. By the time you reach your 40s you may need reading glasses due to the effects of aging (Presbyopia) but you'll still be free from the effects of astigmatism, farsightedness or nearsightedness.

Why Choose LASIK Over Contacts

Contacts, while a great alternative to glasses, have their own issues. Losing, misplacing, forgetting, scratching, slipping, tearing, sore eyes, red eyes, itchy eyes, glued to your eyeballs, and the continuing cost of lenses and cleaning solution - is this beginning to sound like your life?

After LASIK you can take all of these words, phrases and hassles out of your dictionary - and your life.

We've put together this list of our patients' most common gripes and delights in the LASIK Versus Contacts debate.

The LASIK Procedure

Once your eye has been painlessly anesthetized, a comfortable device to prevent blinking will be situated between your eyelids. In less than a minute, while you are focused on a "target' light, the laser painlessly reshapes your cornea. Once the protective flap is properly repositioned, your incision will then securely and quickly bond stitch-free. Learn More »

Are you a LASIK candidate?

Determining if you are a LASIK candidate involves more than just knowing your refractive error (nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism) and your prescription. It's not an answer that can be guessed at by you or an Optometrist.

The only way to know for sure if LASIK is right for you is by having a thorough comprehensive LASIK consultation. In fact we insist on performing the most comprehensive consultation before we'll approve you for LASIK at McMann Eye Institute.

Some people might spend years researching the procedure only to find that they were never a candidate in the first place. That can be a major disappointment. The only way to avoid this disappointment is by having a full and comprehensive LASIK Consultation. Click here for the 4 main factors that help determine is LASIK is right for you!
