Educators - Thinking of LASIK this Summer?
Teaching is a rewarding, yet demanding job. LASIK may be able to make it easier!
Believe it or not, summer vacation is around the corner. While students may be excited to play sports, travel or make some extra cash over the summer, educators will soon be already preparing for the next academic year. If you have been dreaming about teaching without the hassle of glasses or contacts, now may be the best time to start your LASIK journey and return to school in the fall with new vision.
Here are a few frequently asked questions to help you take that first step:
How can LASIK help me teach?
LASIK is a form of refractive surgery that can reduce the need for glasses and contacts. Specifically, LASIK can help correct nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia) and astigmatism. For educators, that means making out your student's face or seeing the clock in the back of the classroom without glasses. LASIK may also be able to help you see as you grade papers without the hassle of your contacts drying out your eyes.
How long does it take to recover?
Most patients are back to their normal activities within a day a two. If you teach over the summer that means you can most likely be back to work the following day. Educators also deserve to have some summer fun as well, but you will want to plan around any swimming-filled vacations, as you will need to stay out of the pool or ocean for one month following the procedure.
How do I know if I am a candidate?
It's easy to find out if you are candidate for LASIK. Call (833) 532-8809 to speak with your dedicated LASIK coordinator to schedule a free, no-obligation consultation with one of our surgeons. At the consultation, our specialists do many advanced eye tests to determine if you are a candidate, for free, and unlike other providers, your surgeon takes the time review your results with you and personally answer your questions so that you can make an informed decision.
When should I schedule the free consultation?
When you call, your LASIK coordinator will review with you how to achieve the best testing results at the consultation, including how long to be without contacts. If you wear contacts, this can be anywhere from one to three weeks depending on the type of contacts. Once you've determined if you are a candidate, our teams can help you schedule surgery that is just one to five weeks away!
