Ready for an upgrade? How about better vision AND a new Apple watch? From June 1st through August 31st 2015, anyone who receives LASIK surgery here at EyeCare 20/20 in New Jersey – or refers a friend who gets LASIK here – will be entered into a drawing for an Apple watch. Best part? If you refer multiple friends who all decide to have LASIK surgery performed, your name gets entered multiple times. The winner will be chosen on September 1, 2015.

Still hesitating? LASIK is painless and promises to improve vision.  It stands for Laser Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis. The name reflects the procedure, which involves the use of a laser to reshape the cornea without invading the adjacent cell layers. For most, it eliminates the need for corrective lenses and for over half, it ensures 20/20 vision or better. It resolves nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. The surgery takes 10-15 minutes and within a day, patients feel normal and experience clear vision. Over the course of the next three to four months, eye sight continues to improve.

Over ten million people have successfully undergone LASIK surgery and said goodbye to glasses and contact lenses for a lifetime. It’s been a hit with professional athletes, graduate students, busy moms, and people from all walks of life. That said, it is contraindicated for those with severe dry eye and certain corneal diseases, so if you fall into this category, make sure to let your ophthalmologist know so that he or she can advise you appropriately. Additionally, candidates must be at least eighteen years of age and ideally have had a prescription that has remained stable for a year. Have more questions? Explore our website, or ask our doctors!

Curious as to what people who have had LASIK eye surgery have to say about it? Check out these answers to a recent Quora question asking just that:

User Mike Barnard said, “I would do it annually at the same expense to keep good vision if that were possible or necessary. My eyesight the next day was better than it had ever been and in a week was crystalline. Colours intensified. Everything was better.”

“The process itself is quite simple and straightforward. I am very sensitive about eyes and was worrying about the process for a long time and it turned out to be quite normal,” Balaji Viswanathan enthused.

Jake Meyer shared, “I’d do it again in a heartbeat, and if you’re considering it go ahead. I went from 20-400 vision to 20-12, and it’s definitely altered my life it a positive way.”

And finally, Ryan Balfanz said, “It’s great. No regrets. In hindsight, would have paid more. It’s been 4 years now, and my vision is still perfect.”

Been waiting for the right time? How about now, when the twinkle in your eye can match the bling on your wrist? And if you’ve already benefited from LASIK, invite someone close to you to try it, or several someones – for their own benefit, and to increase your chances for winning an Apple watch.
