While LASIK does not promise perfect vision, it does hold the promise of reducing one’s dependence on contacts or glasses. For many people, that reduction will allow them to more freely pursue their hobbies, sports activities or career options.
The decision to have the surgery is a very personal one and each person must individually weigh the potential benefits against the risks involved. However, we are often asked why someone would consider the surgery and many people have offered why they considered the surgery over the last few years. For your convenience below, we’ve listed out a few of the more common reasons cited for considering the surgery.
Sports Enthusiasts: from weekend warrior to professional athlete, many wish to be reduce their need for contacts or glasses because they pose safety or performance issues.
