Imagine how much money we spend on glasses and contact lenses to correct our vision? What if you could be free of spending hundreds of dollars every year or two on those items? There are several options that are available that can help you break free and put some more money back into your pocket, all while, literally improving, the way you see things.
The first, is the most common, LASIK surgery. During this 30 minute LASIK surgery procedure the Optometrist will make an incision in the cornea and will remove tissue with the assistance of a excimer laser. This will result in flattening the cornea. LASIK recovery, for most, is a week, although time frames of recovery vary with each patient. There is also a 20 minute procedure referred to as PRK Surgery (Photorefractive Keratectomy), which is similar to LASIK. However, with this type of surgery the Optometrist utilizes a laser in order to flatten the surface of your cornea by removing the epithelial layer of your eye.
Recovery for PRK surgery can take a couple months, again time frames vary with each patient. A third option to those who seek corrective eye surgery may opt for Visian ICL or implantable collamer lenses. This method is recommended for people between the ages of 21 and 45. This procedure takes approximately 15 minutes, and in that time the surgeon makes a couple small incision and inserts a lens behind the iris of your eye. Recovery from Visian ICL surgery can be as little as a day. A new method for improving your eye sight, that is becoming a “hot topic” is the Quantum Vision System.
This is a system that can improve your eyesight significantly in just 7 days, and could restore your 20/20 vision in just three weeks! This program is a three step process that involves eye nourishing, cleansing and exercises for your eyes. These exercises work the muscles of your eyes that become “lazy”, and by doing so, improves eyesight. This method does not require surgery, however, it is recommended that you perform the exercises for at least fifteen minutes per day to get optimal results.
Although this program is controversial to many, if you are looking for a non-invasive, and cost efficient way to improve eyesight, this program would be worth your consideration. If you are considering corrective eye surgery it is best to discuss all options with your Optometrist, to weigh the pro’s and con’s of each procedure, as well as the risks involved with each procedure. This will ensure that you pick the best procedure for your circumstances to obtain the optimal results.
