Should I Get Contacts or Undergo LASIK?

Binghamton Eye Doctor Serving Elmira, Corning, Ithaca, Syracuse, Cortland, & Oneonta, NY

We talk a lot about the vision benefits of LASIK, and they’re immense. But Binghamton LASIK surgeon Dr. Daniel Sambursky understands that you probably have cosmetic considerations in mind as well- put simply, you just want to stop wearing glasses.

That’s perfectly fair and reasonable. The eyes immediately draw attention in conversation, which means removing glasses is an important goal. Of course, LASIK isn’t the only way to reach a point where you no longer need glasses- many patients consider contact lenses instead of surgery.

Contacts certainly remove the cosmetic issue. But they also present a host of other annoyances. Putting lenses in can be a challenge, especially soon after obtaining them for the first time. Removing them is scarcely any easier. And by contrast, it’s quite easy to lose a contact lens in the middle of your day, leaving you in a difficult and inconvenient spot.

We understand you might have some trepidation about LASIK surgery. We’re all sensitive about our eyes. But this procedure from our LASIK surgeon represents a permanent, no-hassle solution to your vision issues. No more unsightly glasses, no more fiddling with contact lenses. Just clear vision.

If you live in the Binghamton, New York area and have questions for our LASIK surgeon, please call Dr. Daniel Sambursky, MD today at 877-333-0700 for a consultation.
