In the United States, over 150 million people have a need for corrective eyewear. Because of vision problems, they spend $15 billion on these eye products annually. A lot of that spending goes towards prescription eyeglasses and contact lenses.
Granted, these items indeed help people cope with and manage their eyesight problems. But they can be quite inconveniencing, as they’re easy to lose, misplace, or damage. In fact, in the U.S., eyeglasses are the fourth most commonly-misplaced object!
All these said, there’s no need to wonder that between 600,000 and 800,000 people in the U.S. get eye LASIK surgery every year. After all, it offers not only long-term vision correction but also life-changing convenience.
The question is, are you a good fit for LASIK? Who are good candidates for LASIK in the first place?
We’ll answer all these questions (and more) in this post, so let’s get right to it!
