Show Yourself Some Love By Getting LASIK for Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is famous for showing love and appreciation to those you care about, but don’t forget to show some appreciation for yourself! Sure, you could get a package of those chalky heart-shaped candies with silly messages or a bunch of roses, but why not get something you’ll use and will last? 

LASIK can be the best thing you get for yourself all year. You’ll love the way you see when you wake up every morning with clear vision and go to bed every night after a day without worrying about your glasses or contacts. Keep reading to learn more about LASIK!

Does It Work?

Yes, LASIK can give you the vision you’ve always wanted for the right people. Studies have shown that over 90% of people who get the procedure end up with 20/20 vision, with even more achieving at least 20/40 vision. 

Millions have had LASIK since it became FDA-approved. This statistic speaks to just how popular the surgery is, in no small part due to its incredible rate of success.

As incredible as LASIK is, it’s not suitable for everyone. You have to be a good candidate for the procedure to undergo it. If you’re not a candidate, other alternative laser vision correction procedures are available. 

If you want to find out if you are one of these people, schedule a LASIK consultation right now at Westlake Eye Specialists in Austin, TX! Even if LASIK is not right for you, we can help you find something else to help you revamp your vision and celebrate yourself this Valentine’s Day.  

What Comes After?

Worried that you’ll be spending the rest of February laying in bed recovering? The recovery process from LASIK is quick and easy, meaning you’ll be back to the things you love before you know it! 

You will need to be conscientious about keeping your eyes safe, particularly for the first few weeks, but that makes it the perfect time to buy some expensive boxed chocolates at a reduced price and relax around the house!  

Typical recovery is not painful, aside from some discomfort. Your eyes may feel dry and irritated for the first day or two, but this will go away on its own. Full recovery can take up to 6 months for some people, but you should be able to participate in most of your everyday routine for most of it. 

How Do I Start?

Book a consultation right now so you can get started on getting your vision enhancement as quickly as possible. The sooner you get it scheduled, the longer you’ll be able to enjoy its effects. 

LASIK is a permanent procedure, so if you qualify for it, you can look forward to decades of clear vision. LASIK is a lifetime gift to yourself and can help you experience the rest of your adventures in clarity, completely independent from glasses. 

You won’t feel like you’re held back by your glasses or inconvenienced by your contacts. Start the year right with a Valentine’s Day gift you’ll never forget! Schedule your LASIK consultation at Westlake Eye Specialists in Austin, TX, now!
