Five Reasons Why NOW is the Best Time to Have LASIK!

LASIK & Cataract Surgeons serving Gurnee, River Forest & Chicago


Considering LASIK? Let us tell you why now is the best time for you to have LASIK from Kirk Eye Center! We have five top reasons for you to move forward – we know it will be one of the best decisions of your life.

1. The technology is better than ever

LASIK technology is better than ever before. The newest lasers on the market are able to provide incredible precision, leading to a stellar visual result for our LASIK patients. The procedure is very short, typically less than 15 minutes per eye, and there is very little to no discomfort associated with LASIK. Quicker treatment times and improved precision ensure you will be seeing well without glasses or contacts in no time.

2. The earlier you have LASIK, the better return on your investment

LASIK is a great option for many patients, but it won’t stop the natural aging process of the eye. People in their 40’s and 50’s will often require the use of reading glasses, so the earlier you have LASIK, the more time you will be able to enjoy without any need for reading assistance. Also, if you think of what you typically spend on glasses, contacts, solution, etc. every year — the earlier you have surgery, the faster you will also realize a positive return on that investment. We do understand LASIK is an investment in your vision, but we also know that over time you will save money. We do also offer some financing options for patients who may be interested.

3. Use your flex spending dollars before they expire

Did you know that most flexible spending accounts actually have a cut off date of March 15th for the year after the plan occurred? So you have until March 15, 2017 to use your 2016 funds. Many plans are use it or lose it, so don’t let them expire and instead apply them towards your LASIK surgery. Plans vary, so check with your human resource officer to confirm your deadlines.

4. Our surgeon’s experience is excellent

Drs. Kirk have much experience in LASIK and you can be sure your eyes are in good hands at Kirk Eye Center. We understand choosing a LASIK surgeon is an important decision and we want to be with you the whole way to ensure you are comfortable and excited for your new vision.
