Do you dream of throwing your contacts out the window? Are you tired of your glasses making your nose sore? Wondering if LASIK is right for you? There could be relief in sight with laser vision corrective surgery.
The decision to get laser eye correction can be an easy one when you consider the benefits of the eye surgery. At Colorado Ophthalmology Associates of Denver, CO, we offer full service laser eye surgery that can correct common vision problems such as:1
- Myopia (nearsightedness)
- Hyperopia (farsightedness)
- Astigmatism (blurry vision both near and far)
- Presbyopia (focusing difficulty that comes with age)
If you suffer from one of these conditions, laser eye surgery, such as LASIK (Laser Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis), Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK), or Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE) might be a good fit for you.2
Let’s take a look at some of the most common benefits that laser vision correction offers to many patients.
Many people can stop wearing their glasses or contact lenses after laser vision correction, though some may still need them for certain activities. Being able to drive without glasses and to wear attractive sunglasses can be a welcome benefit of the surgery. This new vision freedom can make workout sessions, sports, games, hobbies and daily activities more enjoyable.
Having improved vision, possibly eliminating the need of corrective eyewear, can be helpful at work. If you have to wear protective eyewear such as goggles at work, wearing them over glasses can be bothersome. First responders, military personnel and pilots can enjoy an improved work life with increased safety conditions after laser eye surgery.
Improved Self Confidence
With improved vision comes greater confidence. If you’ve ever made an error at work or in sports because your vision was impeded, you will enjoy the new freedom that comes from corrected vision. Just seeing a reduction in errors can make you feel great about life. Being able to see more clearly and connect with other people can give your self-esteem a real boost.

Are you a good candidate for laser eye surgery? There are many factors that your ophthalmologist will consider when answering this question. While there are conditions that laser surgery cannot correct3—such as glaucoma, cataracts, keratoconus and lazy eye—laser eye surgery can help correct many common vision problems.
