Here’s Why You Should Consider Having LASIK

There’s a reason why millions of people have chosen to pursue refractive surgery (surgical procedures that correct common vision problems) versus the more conventional means of correcting vision, like glasses or contact lenses.

Upon first becoming widely available, people were blown away by the possibility of getting rid of their glasses with help from a laser.

In fact, LASIK is deemed as the “most popular vision correction procedure.” And it’s easy to see why LASIK is widely considered to be one of the safest elective procedures in modern medicine.

From surgeon experience to advancements in medical technology, vision correction procedures have only improved. What’s more, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention reported that those who wear contact lenses are 500 times more susceptible to infection than with LASIK.

Patient Satisfaction

Patient satisfaction is at an all-time high. The most recent studies showed that over 98% of patients are totally satisfied with the outcome of their procedure. Compare this to the satisfaction rate in contact lens users, which has plunged in recent years.

Surgery touch-ups

It’s important to know that should your vision change in the years after surgery, you might be eligible for a touch-up, or enhancement surgery. Regression is unlikely, but sometimes vision can change simply due to age-related conditions like presbyopia. At Shinagawa, we offer enhancement plans in the unlikely event that you need a LASIK touch‑up.
