If you’re thinking of getting rid of glasses, two of the most popular options for vision correction are contacts and LASIK. Which option is best? We’ll explore the pros and cons of each option below.

  • Contacts– Contacts are a thin plastic lens that is placed directly on the eye to correct vision. There are many different types and styles available. Contacts are available with a prescription from your eye doctor. They are more expensive than glasses, but less expensive than LASIK surgery. You’ll need to replace your contacts regularly and will need to visit your eye doctor on a regular basis when using contacts.
  • LASIK– LASIK, also known as refractive surgery, is a surgical procedure that reshapes the eye to improve vision. Using advanced lasers and state-of-the-art techniques, we are able to correct high levels of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Patients often achieve better vision that they previously had with glasses or contacts. LASIK is an investment, but over time, you’ll find it is as affordable as glasses and contacts and much more convenient. Clear vision is priceless.
