Is LASIK The Right Choice For You?

Considering LASIK? It probably won’t surprise you to learn that it’s one of the most popular procedures! Since its introduction, LASIK has become a modern procedure thanks to advanced technology.

With better technology, LASIK is now safer and more reliable than ever before! LASIK offers millions of patients the opportunity to experience visual freedom. Keep reading to find out if LASIK could be the right choice for you!

It’s Not Only About Convenience

One of the biggest advantages of LASIK is the convenience factor. But there’s a little bit more to it than that! Yes, you can wear outfits without worrying about clashing with your frames.

You can also say goodbye to the frustrating dry eye that wearing your contacts all day brings. You can also compete in sports without worrying about your glasses falling off your face.

When it comes to being in the zone, it’s a lot easier after LASIK!

Active Lifestyle

Consider yourself active? Glasses aren’t exactly the best choice, which we’re sure you’ve already realized.

If you mountain climb or skydive, wearing glasses isn’t only annoying, but it can be dangerous! Participating in these kinds of activities requires your full focus.

You can’t be worrying about whether your contacts will stay in your eyes when you’re jumping 500 feet out of a plane.

Mountain climbing outside in the elements can bring surprises you never see coming. Climbing a mountain should be your priority, not pushing up your glasses as they slide down your nose. Don’t risk your life because you haven’t had LASIK!


Depending on your career, current or future, you may benefit from LASIK. If you’re looking to work in law enforcement or be in the military, you should get LASIK.

It’s a lot harder to protect civilians and catch the bad guys if your glasses fly off your face! As a soldier in the army, you may be deployed to countries that are dry and hot.

These environments are not ideal if you wear contacts. You may not have enough access to contact lens solution, or you could get dust in your eyes.

LASIK makes sense because there’s a short recovery period. Once you’ve recovered, you’ll have clear vision. After LASIK, you can get back to protecting people instead of worrying about seeing.


If you’re an athlete, you know that glasses don’t work. Sure, you can wear them, but they are likely to get in your way. Many athletes wear contacts instead, but they aren’t the greatest when exercising.

You have to be at your best all the time when you’re an athlete. You can’t worry about if your contacts are going to cooperate during the big game!

They dry out, your eyes could get irritated, or they could pop right out of your eye! These things do happen, and it always seems like it’s at the worst possible time.

Stop leaving your concentration up to chance and consider getting LASIK instead. If you’re over the age of 18, in good health, and not pregnant, you could be a LASIK candidate! The only way to know for sure is to have a LASIK consultation.

Many thanks to Doctor Loden and his amazing staff! They made something that would otherwise be very intimidating very comforting. Their professionalism and service was off the charts. I am one day post surgery and am pain free and can see better than I have for twenty years. I would recommend them to anyone!

Provided by Citysearch - Thanks to Dr. Loden and his staff. I had LASIK yesterday with the guarantee that I would have 20/20 or better. Now it's the day after and sure enough I have 20/20 in both eyes and Dr. Loden says "it will only get better." Everything he has said has been spot on so there is no need to doubt him now. His staff was the nicest people I've ever met in a business environment. If anyone deserves a award it would be Loden Vision Center.
