Why Now is the Best Time for LASIK Eye Surgery

November 18, 2020

LASIK Eye Surgery has been the world’s most popular laser vision correction surgery for over twenty years and is a quick and easy procedure that can improve your vision and your overall quality of life. You might be wondering if this is the year you should get LASIK, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Aside from getting rid of the hassle of contacts and glasses, LASIK has many additional benefits. Read on to learn about all the ways LASIK is continuing to change lives for the better in 2020.

1. Eliminate Foggy Glasses with LASIK

Due to the coronavirus, we are all adjusting to wearing face masks in public areas and that has led to a big issue for glasses wearers: foggy glasses! With LASIK eye surgery, you can ditch the glasses and the fog with one simple procedure.

This dreadful fog is caused by condensation due to the warm air escaping our mouths as we breath and sneaking up behind our lenses. This fog is very problematic considering it disrupts our vision while completing our everyday tasks such as grocery shopping or going to the gym.

After LASIK eye surgery, you can ditch those glasses and wake up with one less worry throughout the day.

2. Reduced Risk of Eye Infections After LASIK

Contact lenses are a great temporary fix to correcting vision. However, without continuous care and caution, it is more common to get an eye infection. Contact lens users are more at risk for conjunctivitis, corneal ulcers and many other eye-related infections. Individuals who wear contacts may suffer more frequently from irritation such as itchy or dry eyes throughout the day. These nuisances will increase the hand-to-face contact, increasing your risk of infecting your face with other harmful pathogens.

LASIK eye surgery at Kremer Eye Center is completely bladeless and one of the safest vision correction procedures available. Natural healing occurs within days of the procedure without the need for bandages or stitches.

3. Quick Recovery

LASIK is a quick and easy out-patient procedure. The overall procedure takes approximately 10-15 minutes an eye. Most patients are back to work the very next day after surgery. You can return to normal activities such as light exercise after just a couple of days of downtime.

At Kremer Eye Center, our team of experts has performed thousands of successful LASIK procedures. Our patients are a top priority. We ensure that all patients are comfortable and know what to expect following the procedure. We will continue to support you through the healing process whether you have your follow-up care at our office or at your regular eye doctor.

4. Save Money with LASIK

At Kremer Eye Center we aim to make LASIK and other vision correction procedures accessible to everyone. Your initial LASIK consultation is free of charge and can be conducted virtually or in-person.

The cost of corrective eye surgery is a point of discussion for many patients who are considering their options with their doctors. Overall, the price of vision correction procedures can vary depending on the type that’s best for you. However, at Kremer Eye Center we strive to make LASIK affordable for everyone by offering financing options to help you get the procedure that you need.

We want to work with you to find a monthly payment plan that best suits your needs.

  • Financing Options: We have special 0% APR financing for qualified patients. If you pay the full price of your surgery within 48 months, you won’t need to pay any interest. Once this period ends, standard APR rates will apply.
  • Vision Insurance: Insurance will typically cover medical procedures for cataracts, glaucoma, corneal transplants, and some ophthalmic plastic surgeries, but not corrective surgeries such as LASIK. Fortunately, there are still ways to help you save. For example, Kremer offers discounts to VSP Vision members for LASIK in our Cherry Hill, King of Prussia, Wilmington and Iselin surgical centers.
  • Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA): Patients do have the option of using their FSA to help pay for LASIK and other eye surgeries that may not be covered by their insurance. Offered by many employers, an FSA lets you contribute pre-tax dollars from your annual salary to the account for select healthcare expenses.
  • Health Savings Account (HSA): Patients can also use their HSA to pay for eye surgery. These tax-exempt trusts are available to those with high-deductible health plans and allow you to set aside money for certain elective medical expenses.
