Since 1998, laser-assisted-keratomileusis (LASIK) has helped millions of people across the globe achieve better vision without relying on eyeglasses or contact lenses.

LASIK surgery is used to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism and is recommended for people who are at least 18 years old, have stable vision, and no serious health conditions. These conditions apply to the average young adult heading off to college, making him or her the ideal candidate for permanent vision correction.

LASIK can help you see your future clearly—both figuratively and literally. Learn why laser vision correction holds several distinct advantages for those looking toward a brighter tomorrow.

LASIK can improve your overall quality of life

Got early classes? Imagine grabbing a few extra minutes of sleep if you could take your morning and evening contact lens rituals out of the equation. You’ll see your instructors, reading materials, and campus settings more sharply than ever without constantly buying replacement lenses. Life is just easier after LASIK.

LASIK is quick, comfortable, and has a high success rate

The LASIK procedure takes just minutes per eye and is minimally invasive, meaning recovery is swift. Patients can usually return to work, school, and sports within a day or two, often with better eyesight than they’ve ever had. It’s no wonder LASIK is the top elective procedure and enjoys such a high patient satisfaction rate.

LASIK can reduce your risk of eye injuries 

By reducing or eliminating the need for glasses or contact lenses, LASIK can help you significantly lower your risk of eye injuries. Think about it: 

  • No more lost, torn or slipping contact lenses in the middle of the game.
  • No more painful contact lens intolerance from studying and staring at screens for hours.
  • No more eyeglasses getting smashed into your face during recreational activities.
  • No more dust from the playing field getting trapped under your contacts.
  • And fewer trips and falls due to vision issues.

LASIK can be done during summer break so you don’t have to miss classes 

The short recovery time of LASIK means you can schedule yours for just about any school break you want. There is minimal downtime associated with this procedure, so most patients are able to hit the books comfortably to prepare for the next exam.
