If you are looking for a unique and thoughtful gift for someone special this holiday season, why not consider giving them the gift of Modern LASIK surgery?
For patients who qualify, the SoftTouch LASIK procedure has proven highly safe and effective in correcting vision problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. It can reduce or eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses, improving quality of life and self-confidence.
But what should you consider before giving the gift of LASIK for Christmas? Here are some steps you can follow to make sure it’s a good fit:
1. Do your research.
Permanent vision correction is a big decision. Therefore, it’s not advisable to surprise someone with LASIK surgery. Instead, confirm whether they are interested in having it done. Then you can help them determine if they are a good candidate for the procedure by having them take the LASIK Self-Test.
2. Find a reputable LASIK surgery center.
Once you have confirmed that your loved one is a suitable and willing recipient of LASIK surgery, you should find a reputable clinic that offers high-quality service and care. You can look for online reviews or ask for recommendations from friends or family who have had LASIK surgery.
3. Book a consultation.
After your loved one has chosen a clinic, it’s time to book a consultation to learn more about the procedure. A consultation is a necessary step before LASIK surgery, as it involves a thorough eye examination to determine what, if any, treatment approach is most appropriate. At Lake Lazer Eye Center, every patient meets with Dr. Khambati, who will review your scans and discuss your options for vision corrections. He will also make sure all your questions are answered and that you are empowered to make a confident decision. There is no obligation to proceed with LASIK after the consultation—and your loved one will learn a lot about their vision needs during the exam.
4. Schedule surgery.
Depending on availability, you may be able to schedule the surgery very soon after the consultation. Don’t worry about squeezing it in before Christmas. Just make sure your loved one schedules the procedure for when they have enough time to prepare for the surgery and the brief recovery period afterward.
5. Offer your support.
Giving someone the gift of LASIK surgery is not only a financial investment, but an emotional one. Be supportive and caring of your loved one throughout the process, from the consultation to the surgery to the recovery. Be their ride to and from the clinic on surgery day and assist them post-operatively.
The gift of better vision is a generous and meaningful gesture that can change someone’s life for decades. By following these guidelines, you can make sure your gift is well-planned, well-executed and well-received.
