After the Eye Exam: 3 Signs Lasik May Be Right for You, Cold Spring, Kentucky

Whether it’s because you’re tired of wearing glasses or dealing with contacts, you may have thought about having your vision corrected after an eye exam through Lasik eye surgery. With a number of locations throughout Greater Cincinnati, the experts at Wing Eyecare consult on this procedure — which employs specialized lasers to permanently correct vision — all of the time. As they see it, many people would be perfect candidates for this surgery without even knowing it.

So how can you tell if you should consider Lasik surgery? It’s worth considering if you fit in any of the following categories:

  • You Lead An Active Life: The most immediately obvious benefit of having this procedure done is that you’ll never need to fuss with contact lenses or glasses. If you’re the type that takes part in sports, goes running, or just enjoys staying active, it’s a good choice to make. That said, it’s not recommended if you take part in martial arts that involve blows to the face.
  • You’re Looking To Simplify: The thing about Lasik is that it’s a one-time procedure — your vision is corrected for life. This means you’ll never need to deal with going back to the optometrist or have to mess with replacing glasses or contacts. Aside from the occasional eye exam, or if your vision continues to get worse, you won’t need to make as many appointments.
  • eye examYou’re In Good Health: According to the Mayo Clinic, Lasik is not recommended if you’re suffering from conditions that affect the body’s ability to heal — like arthritis or HIV — or if you suffer from persistent dry eyes or are pregnant. Luckily, a good eye doctor will be able to make a qualified assessment, and most adults in good health are deemed fit to undergo the procedure.

If you think Lasik surgery might be a good choice for you, give the optometry team at Wing Eyecare a call at (888) 274-9464 to schedule an eye exam.
