Why Should Millennials Consider LASIK?

< Back to All Posts

Key Takeaways

In this digital age we are living in, wearing glasses and contact lenses is becoming more of a hindrance than ever before. Millennials are constantly in front of a computer screen, whether it be for work, school, or social media. Without a doubt, many millennials wear corrective devices, which happens to be major culprit of dry eyes and digital eyestrain.


LASIK is one of the safest and most effective eye enhancing procedures worldwide that has existed for over 20 years. LASIK is performed as an outpatient procedure and takes less than 15 minutes from start to finish for both eyes! At San Antonio Eye Specialists, we use all-laser excimer technology which is fast and precise. Long gone are the days of bladed LASIK and red eyes that have occurred in the past. The laser tracks the eyes and any subtle movements made to allow for optimal refractive results. It’s fast, effective and patients can see 20/20 or better in less than 24 hours post-operation. Where can you get fast surgical results like that? Patients return to school and work the next day with no down time. Dr. Nader G. Iskander is a fellowship-trained refractive ophthalmologist with over 20 years refractive surgical experience. Dr. Iskander joins the millions of people who personally had LASIK with satisfying, life-changing results.

Quality of Life / Convenience

Millennials live a fast-paced, active life ranging from traveling to working long hours to establish their careers – why deal with the challenges that contacts and glasses present when LASIK offers the ease of visual freedom? When planning a trip and prior to travel, you must ensure a supply of contacts and contact lens solution. And don’t forget to pack your glasses and maybe prescription sunglasses. Millennials are carefree and want to experience the most out of life without the hassles associated with contacts and glasses.

Return on Investment / Cost Effective Investment

Consider the cost of contact lenses, contact lens solutions, or prescription glasses and sunglasses, year after year. Do the calculations, and you’ll realize you’ve paid for LASIK many times over but without the ease of visual freedom that LASIK offers.
