What’s the greenest choice for vision correction: glasses, contacts, or LASIK surgery? If we had to choose, we would vote LASIK. Learn why laser eye surgery is a green choice and get our best tips for improving vision while saving the planet.
Why LASIK Is a “Green” Choice
Glasses and contacts create waste, waste that piles up in our landfills and is rarely biodegradable. Think about those daily contact lenses. They may be small, but 1 pair a day plus packaging over 365 days, can equal a lot of trash. And that’s just in a year. Imagine how much trash a lifetime of contact lenses can create.
With LASIK, there are no packages and there is no trash, just better vision. Will Vision and Laser Centers use the latest technologies available and we have one of the most skilled LASIK surgeons in the Pacific Northwest. This means better results for our patients. Many will no longer require glasses or contacts. Our use of KAMRA inlay can even eliminate the eventual need for reading glasses.
See the Beauty of Our Earth, No Glasses Necessary
Many of our patients are outdoor enthusiasts. Living in the Pacific Northwest, it’s easy to understand why. Oregon and Washington are two of the most beautiful states in the country, and our patients can easily get to the mountains or the beach on any given weekend. Our beautiful summer weather makes it a pleasure to hike, climb, bike, swim, and explore. And LASIK makes it easier to enjoy all of these activities.
Let’s face it, glasses and contacts make life more difficult. A hike on a misty morning means foggy, spotted glasses. Sweaty glasses slip off the nose. Water sports are nearly impossible with corrective lenses. LASIK eliminates the hassle of glasses and contact lenses, allowing our patients to get out and enjoy our beautiful planet. We can’t think of anything greener than that.
