Wearing glasses for better vision beats the alternative of not being able to see. However, there are many complaints that go along with wearing glasses. If you’ve been wearing glasses for very long, you’ve probably experienced most, if not all of these.
- Glasses get smudged, smeared, and dirty throughout the day. This can make it hard to see through them. If you are active, you may find you have to clean your glasses more than once a day.
- Glasses also scratch and the frames can be bent or broken. Active people also find that they have to replace their glasses more often, which can be expensive.
- Glasses can be uncomfortable to wear. They press on the bridge of your nose, put pressure on the backs of your ears, and can slide down your face when you exercise.
- Glasses can also affect your self-esteem. If you are not comfortable with how you look in glasses, you may find yourself avoiding social situations.
Fortunately, you don’t have to live with glasses forever. Once your prescription is stable and has not changed for over a year, you are over 18, and don’t have any eye diseases, you may be a candidate for laser vision correction surgery, or LASIK. You can find out by having a free consultation at Boothe Laser Center. Dr. William Boothe has been performing LASIK at Boothe Laser Center for 15 years, and is one of the most experienced surgeons in the world. Let him review your eye history and vision, and see if you are a good candidate for LASIK.
