Contact Lenses Vs. Surgery

by Editor .

I’ve long held the belief that I would eventually get corrective surgery (such as Lasik) for my eyes once I had money saved up. I’ve been telling myself that for over 10 years now. But these days, I’m not so sure that getting surgery is the right move, even if I can afford it. Below, I will go into some detail about why I have begun to change my mind, and I will also show you how to get a promo code.

To be honest, contact lenses have come a long way in the past couple decades. Today, I use Focus Dailies from Ciba Vision, and I have no real complaints. I love the fact that I can put on a new pair every day. This eliminates the need to store the lenses or clean them with solution. But most of all, they are highly comfortable. I literally never have a problem with them. With other contact lenses, I can often feel them inside my eye, but this is not the case with Focus Dailies. Once they are in, I completely forget that they are even there.

Now, to be fair, daily wear contact lenses are a bit on the expensive side. I try to mitigate the costs by purchasing my contacts online from discount stores like When available, I also search for coupons that I can use to save extra money. These coupons are typically codes that you type in on the checkout basket to get an additional discount. You should definitely look for them if you buy lenses online like I do. When you do the math, getting Lasik surgery may end up being less costly in the long run. But I don’t know if I feel like going under the knife and having endless consultations when the contact lenses I’m currently wearing are posing no problem whatsoever. There really is no motivation for me to take that extra step and explore surgical options. And that is just where I stand today. Who knows what advances there will be in contact lenses in the coming decade, which will make the idea of getting surgery even less appealing?
