LASIK vs. Glasses and Contacts

A World of a difference

How Much Do You Spend
on Prescription Eyewear?

If you’re like most people, you may not realize just how much you spend on eyewear, let alone how much a lifetime of eyewear costs. Annual eye exams, updating your prescription, getting new frames or contacts, and eyewear maintenance adds up over time. In the long run, LASIK doesn’t just provide you with exceptional eyewear-free vision: it’s also much less expensive than the alternatives.

Benefits of LASIK Surgery

LASIK provides glasses-free, contacts-free, worry-free clarity. Enjoy living in the moment without needing to find your glasses, as most LASIK patients won’t need to rely on prescription eyewear to see. LASIK is one of the most common vision correction surgeries performed today, and for good reason — it’s safe, reliable, and trusted to improve patients’ vision.

And as we’ll explore below: a single LASIK surgery costs far less than a lifetime of eyewear.

Glasses and Contacts

Glasses and contact lenses are useful vision correction options, but it’s hard to beat the feeling LASIK provides of better vision without eyewear. That’s especially true when you think about how often you have to track down, clean, or otherwise upkeep your frames or contact lenses.

Many people need to replace their eyewear every year as their prescription changes, frames are damaged or lost, or contacts run out: while individual eye exams and prescription lenses cost less than LASIK surgery, when you look at those expenses over ten years or longer, it adds up quickly. In fact, LASIK can be more affordable than just one decade of eyewear, let alone a lifetime!
