The Economy and LASIK

Amidst numerous issues that result from a softening economy, another trickle-down effect is the reduction of spending on elective surgeries. People who were previously lining up to get plastic surgery, gastric bypass surgery and a number of other optional procedures are now holding back, in an effort to line their wallets a little more.
However, LASIK is not one of the industries that have seen this effect. Why? Simply stated, LASIK is far too successful to put off! The public has gotten the word that LASIK is successful and relatively painless and takes only a few minutes. The almost "too good to be true" factors align just perfectly to make LASIK Eye Surgery one of those golden untouchables that a slumping economy does not effect.
Another reason LASIK Eye Surgery is still more popular than ever is it's affordability. Compared to some other elective surgeries, LASIK Eye Surgery costs a little over $1000 per eye, on average. This is thanks to a free market that allows LASIK Surgeons and LASIK Surgical Practices to compete with one another through marketing, advertising and competitive pricing. When the results of LASIK, meaning near-perfect vision, are compared with those of other elective (and pricey!) procedures, (shaving off a bump on the bridge of your nose??) the comparison is a no-brainer.
If you think LASIK Eye Surgery might be right for you, don't wait! Use the soft economy as an incentive to take advantage of lower-than-ever prices, and schedule your free consultation now to see if you're a good candidate.
