If you were born between 1980 and 2000, you have likely been called a “millennial” in your lifetime, and are a part of a group widely known for seeing and experiencing the world a bit differently than your predecessors. Planning for the future and allocating priorities is a whole new game today; when it comes to your vision it’s difficult to determine what investments are sustainable and the best for your lifestyle.

If you live in the Jacksonville, Florida area and are thinking of LASIK vision correction, just know this: LASIK eye surgery at Florida Eye Specialists is an investment you can’t afford to overlook.

Here are a few reasons why LASIK surgery is a great investment for the millennial age group:

Get Your Confidence Back!

Whether you wear glasses or contact lenses, we hear it time and time again. For some people, corrective lenses can really impact confidence levels. Maybe glasses are making you feel like your outside appearance isn’t in line with how you feel on the inside, or the contacts you wear dry out before you make it through all of the things you want to accomplish in a day – corrective lenses can definitely hurt your ego! LASIK eye surgery can give you the confidence to leave home, night or day, without having to worry about problems caused by glasses or contacts.

Do the Things YOU Love (Not Just What Your Lenses Allow)

If you’re the type of person who loves to be outdoors, is active at the gym, or likes to try new sports with friends, wearing glasses can be a huge nuisance. Not only can it be difficult to see out of your peripheral vision, but if you fall or something comes out of nowhere – your glasses may get broken.

Wearing contacts can also be problematic if you have an active lifestyle; getting sand in your lenses during your softball league championship or when having your lenses dry out or tear in the middle of your rock climbing gig? No thank you!

LASIK Can Save You Money!

Think about all the money you’ve spent over the years on eye exams, new pairs of glasses, contact lens solution and prescriptions- it can add up to a lot of money that you could be spending anywhere else! The expense LASIK in Jacksonville, Florida will give you an amazing return on investment. LASIK surgery technology has come a long way, the savings over time can make an enormous difference, and clear vision without corrective lenses is priceless.

LASIK Eye Surgery is a Common Procedure

One of the best things about LASIK in Jacksonville, Florida is that it is a relatively low-risk surgery.
