Crisp, clear vision without the hassle of glasses or contact lenses is crucial to get the most out of your job where ever your workplace may be - from office workers to those who work outside; all roles can benefit from having LASIK.
Now that the holiday period is over and you return to another year of work are you ready to consider LASIK to enhance your career goals or assist you in a change in career?
Crisp, clear vision without the hassle of glasses or contact lenses is crucial to get the most out of your job where ever your workplace may be - from office workers reading computer screens, your own professional appearance at work, or farming and defence personnel going from the office to an outdoor environment, to tradespeople working outside; all roles can benefit from having LASIK.
In the office a great number of our working hours are spent behind a computer screen. A report by the American Optometric Association notes the most frequent health complaints among computer workers are vision related. Studies indicate that 50-90% of computer users suffer from visual symptoms of Computer Vision Syndrome. This is a condition resulting from long periods of time focusing on a computer or other display devices such as a tablet. These symptoms include eye strain, dry eyes, eye irritation, blurred vision and double vision. If you are requiring to use your glasses or contact lenses during the office day, perhaps it is time to consider Laser Eye Surgery to decrease the strain on your eyes.
Many of us require and like to present ourselves professionally at work. While your glasses may have been fashionable two years ago, there is an ongoing cost to upgrade this look as trends change. The one off cost of LASIK is affordable when you consider the cost of changing fashion. Choice and fashion will still be available with prescription free sunglasses.
Some roles require a baseline level of vision (6/12) without the use of glasses or contact lenses, such as the NZ Police. If you are interested in entering this defence role, don’t let your vision hold you back - LASIK eye surgery can correct your vision to meet the entry requirements.
If your work takes you outside, such as trades people or farming, then you don’t need the hassle of your glasses falling off or fogging up in the rain, lenses getting dirt or dust behind them. This can ruin your working day. LASIK will provide you with obstacle free vision.
