How to overcome nerves to get freedom from glasses and contacts
For many people, the idea of getting LASIK surgery is a scary one. It’s natural to be nervous about any kind of surgery, but LASIK is a relatively quick and painless procedure that can drastically improve your quality of life. Here are a few tips to help you overcome the nerves and get the freedom from the glasses and contacts you deserve.
1. Understand the Procedure
The first step in overcoming your nerves is to educate yourself about the procedure.
LASIK is a refractive surgery that corrects vision problems like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. It is an extremely safe procedure with a very high success rate1 https://americanrefractivesurgerycouncil.org/is-lasik-safe/. And while there are always risks involved with any surgery, the risks associated with LASIK are very low. The vast majority of patients experience no serious complications from the procedure.
2. Choose a Reputable Surgeon
When it comes to LASIK surgery, you want to be sure that you’re in good hands. Do your research and choose a reputable surgeon with plenty of experience performing the procedure. At Memorial Eye Institute, we have over 40 years of experience in refractive surgery, and we have been voted ‘simply the best’ for 10 years in a row, so you can rest assured you are in good hands with us!
3. Visualize Your Success
Once you’ve scheduled your surgery, it’s time to visualise your success. Picture yourself post-surgery, enjoying everything you love without worrying about glasses or contacts. This positive visualization will help reduce your anxiety leading to the big day.
If you’re tired of dealing with glasses or contacts, then LASIK surgery may be right for you. It’s safe, effective, and relatively affordable, and it has helped millions of people see clearly for the first time in their lives.
