PUNXSUTAWNEY PHIL SAY IT ISN’T SO! By Dr. Martha Jay, Ophthalmologist at Lakeshore Eye Care Professionals with offices in Mequon & Saukville, Wisconsin
The famous groundhog “Punxsutawney Phil” and our own Milwaukee Zoo counterpart “Wynter” both agree: six more weeks of winter. Instead of just bundling up and enduring while you wait for warmer weather, why not spend your winter wisely by having LASIK vision correction to enhance your summer fun?
To set your mind at ease about LASIK, start by selecting an experienced local doctor you can trust. Did you know that I was the very first doctor in the Milwaukee area to perform laser refractive surgery? Then be sure you doctor is using the most advanced precision laser technology available. We do just that by exclusively offering blade-free LASIK with the IntraLase and VISX lasers. Affordability should not be your top concern but contacts are expensive. If you are a 30 year-old contact lens wearer, expect to pay $20,000 over your lifetime for contacts and solutions. With those savings and our financing plan, LASIK is a deal.
Blade-free LASIK in my hands is safe, reliable and pain free. You are in the laser suite for only about 20 minutes with each laser running for a minute or less. I suggest that you take two days off your regular activities. After LASIK other restrictions include no contact sports, eye makeup or swimming for 2 weeks and no vigorous eye rubbing for 6 weeks. You can drive the next day as your vision will be remarkably improved but complete healing takes about 3 months.
Don’t let a couple of groundhogs ruin your day, get prepared for summer by calling 262-241-1919 today to arrange your complimentary LASIK screening exam. You’ll enjoy swimming, biking, boating and all your other summer passions so much more without the hassles of contacts or glasses.
