Imagine not having to struggle with contact lenses every morning and then removing them from your dried-out eyes at night. Imagine not having to push your glasses up your nose constantly, or stopping everything to wipe off the streaks and fingerprints on the lenses. Imagine not having to squint at the text in this magazine article, or at signs that are just too far away for your eyes to see clearly. Finally, imagine not having to spend a lot of money on contacts and solution, or expensive frames and lenses every six months. Sounds like an ideal situation, right?

Well, your imaginings can become your reality sooner than you think! The year 2020 is fast approaching, and what better way to enter into the new decade, than by making sure you are 20 Happy with your vision? Everyone will want to see the next year more clearly, so now is the time to set up your appointment to make it happen. Bond Eye Associates is the place to be this fall, as they are dedicated to making certain everyone is 20 Happy for the year 2020 with their laser vision correction procedures.

What does 20 Happy mean? Well, we’ve all heard of 20/20 vision, which is the normal clarity of vision for human beings. If you see with 20/20 vision, it means that at 20 feet, you can see what a person with normal vision sees at 20 feet away. If you are nearsighted with 20/40 vision, for instance, then you will need to be as close as 20 feet to see what a person with normal vision would see at 40 feet away.

Now, you might think that having 20/20 vision is the ultimate goal for your eyes, but this doesn’t always make everyone happy. At Bond Eye, where every member of the staff is dedicated to providing excellent patient care, the procedure is specifically customized to each individual. The reason for this is because each person’s vision goals will most likely differ from others. As an example, let’s say there’s a nearsighted woman of 45 years of age that does not need bifocals yet, but wants to correct her vision so she can clearly see objects that are far away. She would most likely be happier if her vision was corrected to 20/25, so she won’t have to rely on reading glasses as quickly as she would if she were only corrected to 20/20. On the opposite end of the spectrum, let’s look at a baseball player who has corrective lenses that allow him to see with 20/15 vision. This is better than normal vision, and if he has a procedure that corrects him to 20/20, his game will surely suffer, because he will no longer be able to see the ball as well as he once did. Therefore, procedures for vision correction need to be tailored to each unique individual for them to achieve 20 Happy and if your expectations are unrealistic then Dr. Bond will discuss what options you have personally.

This focus on customization is what makes Bond Eye unique. When you visit them, you can rest assured that you are their priority during every minute of your time with them. “Patient Care First” is their motto, after all, and what every member of the practice strives for each day. They are led by Dr. Bond, who has always been innovative in his practice. Since opening in Pekin back in 1981, he has continued to stay on the cutting edge of technology, particularly in the refractive surgery field. In fact, he invested in one of the first lasers here in Peoria, and at that time, several other ophthalmologists in the area would come to use his suite to conduct laser eye surgery on their patients. Dr. Bond was also involved in getting the LASIK procedure approved, so that he could help a lot of local people see better.

Since its inception, laser eye surgery has corrected the vision of many 20 Happy people. It’s a quick, painless process, and your vision will be improved immediately. Plus, it’s much safer than wearing your contact lenses too often or for too long. Once your sight is corrected with LASIK surgery, you won’t have to worry about expensive glasses or contacts, and you will have unobstructed views as you look around.

At Bond Eye, the first step toward improved sight without glasses or contacts is to stop in for a free evaluation and to learn about their comparable pricing, currently at a special discount. At this point, you will be assessed to see if LASIK or another procedure would be right for you, since everyone will have different expectations and needs. After a thorough examination and measurements, you will set up a schedule for the surgery, usually done in the morning. On the day of your surgery, you will be made as comfortable as possible, and once you are on the bed, the whole procedure only takes about 15 minutes for both eyes. Actually, most of this time is spent on preparation and double checking measurements. The laser is treating each eye for only a few seconds throughout the whole process, and when you sit up, your vision will have improved enough already to see the clock with no corrective lenses. As your eyes heal, your sight will get even better!

Most people today rarely have to wear contacts or glasses once they’ve gotten LASIK, until they reach their mid 40s, when, due to the natural aging process of the eye, they will most likely need reading glasses or bifocals. Even then, there are procedures that can be administered to those people that already need corrective lenses for reading. So, what are you waiting for? Don’t go into the next year without being at your 20 Happy best. You will be amazed at the chance to experience the world with clear vision.
