For many, LASIK is the ultimate opportunity to toss out those glasses and live a carefree life full of things they could never see before without assistance. But for many of those same people with big dreams of near-perfect vision, information has been skewed, and they've been misled to believe they're not candidates for the remarkable procedure that is LASIK.
Whether it's thin corneas, a rare case of certain types of myopia, chroncically dry eyes, or vision loss too severe to see results, thousands of candidates began looking into alternative surgeries. Other refractive surgeries may not have the same results as LASIK. There is also a lot of buzz surrounding the new ICL's or Implantable Contact Lenses. However, the hype is drawing a lot of people who would be perfect candidates for LASIK to ICL's. ICL's cost approximately $6000, or $3000 per eye, while LASIK costs, on average, just over $2000 for both eyes. ICL's are, in fact, a great opportunity for those who are not ideal candidates for LASIK. However, you cannot know which procedure is right for you without a consultation with a LASIK surgeon.
Ultimately, LASIK might solve a lot of your problems, and may be the most efficient and effective plan for you - if only you make a consultation to find your right course of action!
