Give the Gift of Sight this Holiday Season!

Having trouble finding the perfect gift for that special someone this holiday season?  There’s no better gift than the gift of sight!  Mandel Vision LASIK and PRK gift certificates are now available for laser vision correction with corneal specialist and micro-surgeon, Eric R. Mandel, M.D.

LASIK Gift Certificate | Mandel VisionWhy give the gift of sight?  There are so many reasons!  Here are just a few:


If you’ve never worn glasses or contact lenses, it’s hard to understand just how liberating LASIK and PRK laser vision correction can be.  One of the most common things we hear from patients the day after their procedure is how amazing it is to be able to see the time on their alarm clock in the morning without fumbling around for their glasses.  Those of us who were lucky enough to be born with perfect vision take little things like this for granted.  Many patients are not functional without some type of corrective lenses.  Imagine not being able to see anything beyond 2 inches in front of your face without putting on a pair of glasses.  For these patients, LASIK and PRK can be life-changing procedures.

Simpler Travel

Imagine you’re completely dependent on glasses and contact lenses.  Now, imagine you’re on vacation, hiking in some remote place like Machu Picchu, and your glasses break.  Contact lenses aren’t ideal on these types of vacations as dirt and dust can make contact lenses uncomfortable, not to mention the risk of infection those environments pose. So, breaking your glasses can really put a damper on your vacation.  Maybe you’re not a hiker and your ideal vacation looks more like relaxing on the beach with a frozen drink in your hand.  Sand is not a friend of contact lenses and if you plan to do any swimming, contact lenses are definitely out, as blinding infections can result from mixing contact lenses and water sports.  Ever tried to swim in the ocean with glasses on?  It’s not so easy.  Prescription goggles are an option…but a bit of a hassle at the beach – not to mention the tan lines you’re likely to get.  Now imagine being able to enjoy the above vacations without having to give your vision a single thought.  LASIK and PRK laser vision correction can help this become a reality for those who qualify.

Hassle-Free Exercise

What do rain, snow and sweating have in common?  They all can fog up your glasses.  This can make running, particularly outdoors, a bit hazardous.  It’s hard enough navigating pedestrians, dog-walkers, cars and bicycles in NYC, without adding that to the mix.  Swimming poses another challenge.  Obviously, glasses aren’t an option while swimming laps, pool water and contact lenses are a dangerous combination and prescription goggles can be really costly and not as easy to replace if lost or broken. Patients tell us frequently how LASIK and PRK have made sports a much more enjoyable experience for them, not to mention the competitive advantage they perceive from better vision.

A Safer Bathroom Experience

Yes, you heard it right.  Again, this is easier to understand if you’re one of the unlucky people who are completely dependent on glasses and contact lenses.  For these people, accidentally putting ear drops in their eyes (ouch!) or brushing their teeth with something other than toothpaste (yuck!) is not uncommon.   Contact lenses and tap water are a dangerous combination because there is an amoeba present in tap water that can cause blinding infections, and nothing fogs up your glasses quicker than a steamy shower.  Imagine your shower experience when you can’t tell the difference between shampoo and conditioner.  That could make for a REALLY bad hair day.  These stories are all too common from our Mandel Vision LASIK and PRK patients and they’re some of the many motivating factors for having laser vision correction.

When you have perfect vision, it’s easy to take all of these routine daily activities for granted.  Now that you’re armed with some real-life experiences and the challenges faced by those friends and loved ones who aren’t as fortunate, hopefully it’s easy to see how LASIK and PRK can be life-changing experiences for them.

The best part about the gift of sight is that it’s the gift that keeps on giving!  You’re not only helping that special someone correct their vision now, you could be alleviating the expense of a lifetime of glasses and contact lenses.  Now, that’s a gift!  Call us at 888-866-3681 for more information about Mandel Vision LASIK and PRK gift certificates, or to schedule a free LASIK/PRK consultation for that lucky someone in your life. You can also click here to book a FREE LASIK/PRK consultation  online.
