Glasses and contacts can be a hassle—and paying for them over the course of your lifetime can really add up. Wouldn’t you love to quit dealing with scratched up glasses or stop holding onto your last, dried-up contact lens while your new ones are coming in the mail? Wouldn’t you like to enjoy your life without cleaning your glasses or dealing with contacts drying out your eyes?

This is why Sina J. Sabet MD offers LASIK procedures. While the procedure isn’t for everyone, LASIK is an innovative form of laser eye surgery that can dramatically improve your vision and eliminate your need for corrective eyewear. You’ll see better and eliminate the costs of corrective eyewear now and in the future. Let’s look at the benefits of LASIK procedures.  

Benefits of LASIK

Better Vision

Scientific studies have shown that 95 percent of those who undergo a LASIK procedure will achieve 20/40 visual acuity, while 85 will achieve 20/20 vision. Regardless of how much your vision improves, you’re going to see dramatic increases in visual sharpness and clarity.

Fast Recovery

LASIK is an outpatient procedure—and while you won’t be able to drive home after your appointment, your normal vision and lifestyle will return within 24 hours.

Long-Term Effectiveness

The entire LASIK procedure takes a few months to transform your vision, but once your eyes are completely adjusted, the results should be permanent. Occasionally, older patients will need a follow-up surgery once their eyesight changes with age, but otherwise, the results will last a lifetime.


It’s true—LASIK procedures don’t come cheap. However, glasses and contact lenses don’t, either. A LASIK procedure is a lifelong investment into your vision—instead of spending hundreds per year on contact lenses and glasses, you could invest that money into LASIK. The procedure will eventually pay for itself.
