Why LASIK Helps You Keep Your New Year’s Resolutions

As the end of the year creeps closer and closer and you put the holidays behind you, it’s time to start thinking about New Year’s resolutions. Every year, you swear you’ll stick to one but by February, you’re already off the wagon and hating yourself for being unable to commit.

Sound familiar? If you’re bound and determined to stick to your New Year’s resolutions in 2021, keep reading to find out how LASIK helps you keep them!

LASIK makes staying active a breeze

By far, one of the most popular New Year’s resolutions that people make is they’ll be more active. But try as they might, it never seems to last.

It’s not like you can use the freezing cold weather as an excuse, either. Living in Hawaii means winters are mild at best, so nothing should be stopping you from sticking to this resolution the whole year!

One reason why people find it difficult to stay active is sometimes the most simple. If you wear glasses or contact lenses, this can be the biggest thing that’s holding you back.

How difficult is it to get into your workout when your glasses constantly fall down your nose? It’s distracting and annoying!

And if you wear glasses, it can even result in damage to your glasses, which could be costly. Most people try to avoid this by wearing their contact lenses when they know they’ll be working out.

Yet, contacts have their faults as well. Continuous activity (like when you’re exercising) makes it easier than ever for your eyes to dry out.

This can then translate to your eyes becoming irritated, itchy, or watery. Again, you’re distracted and you’re anything but in the zone while you’re working out.

Getting LASIK can help you on your quest to get healthy

Between glasses and contacts, it can seem like your visual aids are conspiring against you getting healthy! Okay, they are inanimate objects, so that’s not possible, but it is definitely frustrating when all you want is to see while you’re working out.

The solution? You could find out if you’re a candidate for LASIK!

When you get LASIK, you can finally say goodbye to glasses and contacts. This is a huge deal if you’re someone that’s had to wear these for years and you know there’s something better.

That something better? It’s LASIK and it’s especially great if you’re trying to get active!

LASIK has a short recovery period, which means after a few days, you can get back in the saddle and work on getting healthy!

Want more self-confidence? LASIK can help!

Another common New Year’s resolution people make is to be more confident. Whether that’s repeating a mantra every morning in the mirror or simply refusing to listen to negative self-talk, it can definitely be challenging!

After all, how do you measure something like self-confidence? If you’re tired of disliking what you see when you look in the mirror, LASIK could help.

Sure, you could wear contact lenses, but these are only a temporary fix at best. Getting LASIK is a permanent procedure.

People sometimes think this can’t be possible, but it is. How is this possible, they ask? It’s simple, really.

LASIK will give you a permanent boost of self-confidence

LASIK works because it permanently reshapes your corneas (assuming you qualify as a candidate for the procedure). Reshaping the corneas is important because it corrects refractive errors.

These include nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Once your refractive errors have been corrected, your vision is then fixed.

Most LASIK patients end up with 20/20 vision or better after the procedure! The best part: for the majority of patients, this means you can finally achieve the visual freedom you’ve always dreamed of.

How’s that for a little permanent boost of confidence? You can say goodbye to glasses and contact lenses for good and start appreciating who you see looking back at you in the mirror!

Save more money over time thanks to LASIK

Thinking about how you spent too much money in 2020 and need to learn to budget better? Although it may seem unbelievable, by getting LASIK, you can actually save money over time!

Consider how much money you spend annually on your glasses, contact lenses, contact lens solution, and the accessories that go with them. On average, this is around $500 per year for most people.

But that also doesn’t take into account the times when repairs or replacements become necessary. Or when you need contacts as soon as possible and end up having to pay for rush shipping because you’re about to run out.

LASIK puts your hard-earned money back in your pocket

It definitely all adds up! Now, imagine if you no longer needed to pay for any of these costs for eye care. Instead, you could have an extra $500 in your pocket every year.

What would you do with that money? The possibilities are pretty endless, but if your New Year’s resolution is about saving more money, maybe you should save it.

You could save up for a vacation to Europe, or put it aside to buy your first home, or simply start investing. The point remains the same, which is that by getting LASIK, you’ll save money.

Although LASIK is an elective procedure, meaning that most insurance plans won’t cover it, you can look into financing the procedure. Here at Sugiki Portis Yim Eye Center, we offer our patients financing options to make LASIK more affordable.

There’s no reason why the only thing that’s standing in your way of visual freedom is money. Most people that get LASIK are able to pay off their procedure after only 2 years.

That means that after paying off your procedure, LASIK can begin to pay for itself. It’s pretty simple when you think about it like that! You get clearer vision and more of your hard-earned money back in your pocket at the same time.

Ready to see the world in a whole new way in 2021? Schedule your LASIK consultation at Sugiki Portis Yim Eye Center in Honolulu, HI today!

If your New Year’s resolution has always been to change your life, LASIK is the best thing you can do for yourself!
