					The benefits of laser eye surgery

                                               If you wear glass or contacts, then you know just how
                                               cumbersome either can be. Smudges that appear on the
                                               lenses of glasses are incredibly irksome and for people
                                               with dry eyes, contacts can be quite painful. But these
                                               aren’t the only annoying aspects of glasses and contacts-
                                               neither glasses nor contacts are cheap. A person who
                                               wears glasses will spend, on average $150 on a new pair
                                               of glasses each time he or she breaks a pair, loses a pair,
                                               or needs to upgrade his or her prescription, and a person
                                               who wears contacts will spend, on average $70 a box,
                                               meaning a 6-month supply of contacts could easily cost
                                               someone almost $300.

A round of laser eye surgery can help completely eliminate the need for prescription eyewear for the
rest of your life. But many people balk at the upfront price tag- the typical laser eye surgery procedure
can cost between $2000 and $3000- and completely dismiss the idea of laser eye surgery before even
researching or considering it further.

But this initial and only cost of the laser eye procedure shouldn’t hinder people from getting a Los
Angeles Lasik procedure performed on their eyes. Most laser eye surgery procedures can be financed
through the surgeon who performs your laser eye surgery, letting patients make monthly payments on
their laser eye surgery. As a matter of fact, a good amount of laser eye surgeons allow for their patients
to take a few years, as many as five, to completely pay off their laser eye surgery bill.

Those that are weary about undergoing a surgical procedure to correct their vision shouldn’t worry too
much- laser eye surgery procedures have some of the lowest incidences of surgical complications, with
much less than 1% of all patients who have received some sort of laser eye surgery experiencing some
kind of complication.

The laser eye surgeries are so successful, painless, and effortless that in a study of US Navy and US
Marine Corp troops who recently went through wavefront-guided LASIK procedures, 100% of them
would recommend the procedure for anyone who wants to correct his or her vision. In fact, all of the US
Navy and US Marine Corp troops who had the procedure done reported that their vision got correct to
the point that they were able to see at a 20/20 within two weeks of the procedure.

The most important thing to consider when deciding to get laser eye surgery is the eye surgeon who will
be performing the procedure. It is crucial that you do your research and choose a laser eye surgeon in
Beverly Hills who is not only licensed, but well-experienced enough to handle the procedure that you
desire.
