Use your tax return to ditch the glasses this EOFY
Are you tired of wearing glasses but haven’t been able to find room in the budget for LASIK eye surgery?
The end of financial year is fast approaching, which presents a golden opportunity for you to have 20/20 vision using your tax return.
The entire process takes less than the time it would take you to put together your return, including the surgery itself and recovery.
Through this procedure you can permanently correct most eye conditions and go into the new financial year with confidence and without the need for glasses or contact lenses.
How LASIK eye surgery works
LASIK eye surgery can be used to correct a range of refractive errors in the cornea, astigmatism (irregularly shaped cornea), hyperopia (farsightedness), myopia (nearsightedness), LASIK uses a cool laser beam and is performed under local anaesthetic, usually only taking about 10 minutes per eye.
The process involves a flap being made out of the outer layer of the cornea, then the laser corrects the refractive error before returning the flap as a natural protective seal.
You will feel a little bit sensitive to light after the procedure, but the majority of clients report that there is no pain and they can see dramatic improvement in the vision straight away.
The recovery period
You should notice the difference mere minutes after the procedure.
The recovery period is extremely rapid, although we do recommend 24 hours to rest and to organise someone to drive you home after the procedure is complete.
We will issue eye drops and protective sunglasses as part of your aftercare. Most patients can return to work within 24- 48 hours and you will be able to throw your glasses away immediately.
