Is LASIK eye surgery trendy with millennials?

Hi, it’s Dr. Chotiner from Memorial Eye Institute. If you’re curious to learn if LASIK eye surgery is popular with millennials, you’re in the right place.

In recent years, there’s been a rise in the number of millennials LASIK eye surgery. In this post, we’ll explore some of the reasons why more and more young adults are choosing to get this life-changing procedure.

The first reason has to do with money. Although the initial cost of LASIK can be prohibitive for some people, it’s important to remember that it’s a long-term investment. When you compare the cost of LASIK to a lifetime of glasses or contacts—not to mention the added costs of things like solution, cases, and lenses—it’s easy to see how LASIK can actually save you money in the long run.

But beyond the financial considerations, there are also quality-of-life factors that come into play. For millennials who grew up with technology, gadgets, and social media, not being able to see clearly can be a real hindrance. After all, if you can’t see well enough to use your smartphone or laptop, you’re going to miss out on a lot of what this world has to offer!

Finally, let’s not forget the fact that LASIK is simply more convenient than glasses or contacts. No more fumbling around with solutions and contact cases in the morning; no more worrying about losing your glasses at an inopportune moment; no more worrying about your contacts drying out during a long day. With LASIK, all you need is clear vision—and you can have that as soon as you walk out of the surgeon’s office.

There are lots of good reasons why LASIK surgery is becoming increasingly popular among millennials. From a purely financial standpoint, it makes sense to invest in a procedure that will save you money over time. But beyond that, there are quality-of-life factors that come into play for young adults who want to be able to take advantage of all the world has to offer—without being hindered by poor vision. And then there’s the convenience factor; let’s face it, having clear vision is a lot easier (and less stressful) than dealing with glasses or contacts on a daily basis.
