LASIK vs Glasses – A Comparison Between the Two Vision Correction Methods

Glasses is a quick, no-nonsense fix to your refractive errors, be it myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism or presbyopia. You can easily wear them when you need it. But spectacles come with its own fair share of inconveniences – it can fog up and you can easily break or misplace it.

Unlike glasses which tend to be clunky and cumbersome, LASIK surgery can also give you crystal-clear vision. Why should you go for LASIK instead of depending on your trusty pair of specs? Let us tell you a few reasons why.

No more glasses fogging up

Walking out of a cold room (e.g. a cinema theatre) with your glasses on is a real pain – your glasses will immediately fog up and you can hardly see where you are walking. You will face the same situation when you are eating a piping hot bowl of soup. With LASIK surgery, you won’t need to deal with these less-than-convenient circumstances anymore.

Look better without your glasses?

You can easily incorporate specs which are fashionable and trendy as part of your fashion statement. But not everyone will think that way. Glasses, especially if you are highly myopic, will make your eyes seem much smaller than it actually is. And while the social stigma that glasses makes you look nerdy and geeky still persists, it does not help in boosting your self-confidence.

Aesthetically-wise, freeing yourself from your specs through LASIK can make you appear better and more confident.

Fumbling around for your glasses becomes a thing of the past after LASIK.

Get ready to say hello to perfect vision when you get out of bed. No more fumbling around for your glasses in the morning just to check the time. Simply hop out of your bed and get ready to start the day!

Get active with LASIK!

To some, the tipping point for them to opt for LASIK is the freedom to pursue their sporting activities. When it comes to sports, there are some that are difficult or even impossible with glasses – rock climbing, yoga, hiking, MMA, soccer just to name a few. Why should you let your glasses limit you to the things you love doing?

If scuba diving is one of your things, you will have to purchase a special prescription diving mask to be able to fully experience the awe of the underwater world. But these tend to be expensive and since you will only use it from time to time, why not just go for LASIK once and for all?

Getting started on your LASIK journey.

When it comes to glasses vs LASIK, it all boils down to your personal choice. What is your lifestyle like? Do you personally like to wear glasses? Are your glasses hindering you from activities that you love? If you can identify with these situations, maybe it’s time to explore the LASIK (or other laser eye surgery techniques) option.

You can simply begin your LASIK journey by scheduling a pre-surgery eye assessment appointment. And remember, you must be 18 years old and above and your eyesight must have been stable at least for the past one year. Good luck! 🙂
