If you have a flexible spending account (FSA) through your employer’s health insurance, you are on the clock to use the money you’ve contributed to your FSA this year. FSA accounts are subject to a “use it or lose it” rule that results in millions of dollars forfeited each year, but there’s still time to use your funds and give yourself the gift of clear sight with LASIK.
One of the best things about LASIK eye surgery is the rapid recovery time. Typically, it takes just a few days to fully recover, and most patients find that their vision noticeably improves just a few hours after they get home from their LASIK surgery.
LASIK laser eye surgery is a remarkably fast, efficient, and precise procedure. Typically, while your entire appointment may take an hour, the procedure itself is only 5 to 10 minutes per eye. It is not painful, as numbing drops are applied beforehand.
