Raise your ‘glasses’ to the festive season

Those who wear glasses know the annoyance that comes with it.

Most people are sick of the humdrum of sporting glasses year after year, and maybe you’re one of them. Perhaps eye problems like astigmatism, short-sightedness or myopia have become part of the ‘norm’ for you.

Before the end of the year rolls around, we recommend treating yourself to improved vision through LASIK eye surgery.

Christmas came early

LASIK is a revolutionary eye surgery that also makes for the perfect pre-Christmas gift—whether for yourself or someone else.

As a proven and popular procedure used to correct vision in people who are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism, it’s ideal for those who want a pain-free and rapid result.

The procedure is simple: a thin, flap is created in the cornea before a cool excimer laser is used to correct your vision..

The process usually takes no longer than 15 minutes, requires only eyedrops, rather than general anaesthetic, and reshapes the cornea  of the eye. The end-result means freedom from glasses and contact lenses.

Melbourne’s NewVision Clinics, pioneered by Dr Noel Alpins AM, are specialists in LASIK. The recovery is seamless—with most people back at work the next day, allowing you to continue preparing for your holiday celebrations.  

Either way, with the summer heat fast closing in, considering LASIK can help keep you cool this summer when you’re thinking about taking a splash in the pool without contact lenses or spectacles.

If Christmas Day isn’t enough motivation for you, then consider the biggest night of 2017—New Years Eve.

With 20/20 vision, you’ll be able to watch the fireworks in all their glory, and possibly for the first time without visual aids.

Is It safe?

As with most medical procedures, LASIK too can come with risks.

But rest assured, LASIK  is backed by a better than 98% success rate, so you’re able to proceed with peace of mind.

Complications are extremely rare in experienced hands such as NewVision Clinics where more than 24,000 procedures have been performed.
