Short-sightedness is a common vision impairment that draws people to consider corrective eye procedures. People can struggle with short-sightedness for years only to realize that there is often a shockingly simple solution: LASIK.
Contact lenses are one of the top motivating factors that cause people to consider LASIK. Contacts are at times uncomfortable and consistently high maintenance. Anyone who has had to wear contacts can empathize with this. Most people have had one of those late nights where you forget to take them out and wake up to agitated eyes or only to realize that you have rubbed one out in your sleep. The amount of hassle and preparation that are required of contacts is hassle enough to reconsider how you see the world.
London Vision Clinic is renowned for its award winning staff and service. In addition to the high quality medical care it offers, the people working at London Vision Clinic are a main factor in setting the clinic apart from other laser eye surgery clinics in the UK.
Laser eye surgery stands to be the single best decision of your life. Most patients experience an improvement in every aspect of their lives, from sports to driving to simple tasks like reading and distinguishing between bottles in the shower. But you don’t have to take my word for it…
Perhaps the most discussed, and discouraging, of the laser eye surgery myths is that it’s painful. It can cause people to grapple for years with the idea of even coming in for a consultation. In some cases, people hear a horror story so terrifying, that they refuse to even consider it as an option and resign themselves to a life behind glass (or lenses).
Laser eye surgery is a life changing experience. Thus, it is very common for many corrective eye surgery patients to feel liberated after the procedure.
For athletes who require the assistance of vision corrective devices, laser eye surgery can be a dream come true. It can be an extremely liberating experience to not have to worry about losing a contact or breaking your glasses.
London Vision Clinic strives to be transparent regarding costs and make their patients as comfortable as possible from their first consultation to their final post-surgery follow up appointment. While many patients may feel intimidated by the procedure itself, they are often erroneously under the impression that the recovery and the aftercare are complicated, painful, and full of risks. Laser eye surgery is not supposed to be painful and in fact, any discomfort at all will seldom extend beyond the first day.
It isn’t uncommon for many people to feel nervous and apprehensive prior to laser eye surgery. For many people the mere thought of being awake for a medical procedure is disconcerting enough. For others it is the fear of pain.
Although our results speak for itself, we understand that laser eye surgery can be intimidating and sometimes scary for most. Our goal is to provide our patients with quality results along with a happy and comfortable experience. Sometimes we just need a little boost in confidence in order to make up our minds.
