You notice things during the holiday. As family and friends gather those that wear contacts or glasses let everyone know how inconvenient it all is. As relatives age hunting for glasses or finding that lost contact lens takes up energy that could become used for something else. Over the years even with gift-giving of eyewear necklaces, special contact lenses, or the Bluetooth technology app on the smartphone to find glasses quicker does not stop the conversation about it.
Of course, the holiday season of light becomes packed with events such as buying gifts, making contacts of those not attending the holiday dinner, and attending services or work events. Delays due to lost glasses can cause family friction. Hence all the gift-buying of accessories to help speed up that process. For the sake of family relations and ensuring the memories of holidays spent together with the relatives you might consider giving the gift of sight through LASIK.
The gift of sight
As people age the gift of vision becomes precious. Anything to improve eyesight improves quality of life. LASIK, known as laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis offers an opportunity to become less dependent on glasses or contact lenses. A refractive surgery the laser used reshapes the cornea to give optimum sight. Not everyone can become a candidate for LASIK surgery.
At the Houston LASIK clinic staff offers counseling and information so patients can make an informed decision. After that process, a consultation with one of the doctors becomes set up. The procedure has developed a 99 percent success rate of achieving 20/40 vision in patients and a 90 percent success rate of 20/20 or better in patients as reported by the American Refractive Surgery Council. An outpatient surgery that only takes a day that takes 10 to 15 minutes per eye will fit in most any schedule. Add in that initial recovery takes about a week, with several months for full restored eyesight it makes sense to offer the option to a family member. Many patients report improved vision within days. Many studies exist that show the procedure effective on the elderly.
How about a gift certificate?
Driving to Houston and talking with the staff will inform the gift giver of the many ways the clinic has to pay for the elective laser eye surgery. Or call Houston’s 1560 AM station when Dr. Khokhar comes on “Ask the Doctor” to see if his clinic can help your loved one to better vision. Take a look at the clinic’s many published medical publications by Dr. Amjad Khokhar. His ability in the area is well-known as well as their skill at personalized attention. The clinic would be happy to arrange a gift certificate or a gift card.
Next time the relative calls with the conversation about the negatives of wearing glasses and contact lenses know you can turn it around by offering a gift certificate to the Houston Lasik clinic. Be aware it does change the conversation, and they will most likely see much better when in your house. That is what family is all about. Be prepared and know you paid for stellar vision.
