Sydney laser eye surgery can be an affordable and highly effective alternative to glasses or contact lenses. Just one procedure can result in better vision, and most people who have the surgery enjoy permanently good vision, without the need for tedious follow up appointments. Many people are also surprised at how fast the procedure is; you can typically go back to work and generally resume your normal daily routine within a day or two of having the surgery. And laser eye surgery is typically less expensive than you might think, especially when compared to the ongoing cost of wearing contact lenses, which can easily be several hundred dollars or more each year. If you wear glasses, the sense of freedom after surgery is a wonderful thing, and many people who can say goodbye to their glasses following surgery experience a feeling of self confidence.
