3 Reasons to Get LASIK Surgery Before the Summer Season

March 27, 2014

Fully enjoy your summer vacation by ditching your glasses and contact lenses.

If you are someone who suffers from poor vision, there has never been a better time for you to ditch your contacts and glasses, and finally have LASIK surgery once and for all.

Sure, many of the reasons why you should undergo LASIK surgery hold true all year long―you will have better vision, you no longer have to rely on prescription lenses to have perfect vision, you will be more comfortable each day, etc.―however, the reasons to have LASIK surgery only increase when you are getting ready for a season full of swimming, beach-bathing, sunshine and summer sports.

Therefore, take the steps now to ensure that you have the best summer of your life by undergoing LASIK surgery during the spring season. While you only have to wait seven days after having LASIK to go swimming in a pool, you should wait at least 30 days after your procedure before swimming in natural bodies of water, such as oceans or lake. Therefore, now is the perfect time for you to improve your vision and properly rest up before you jump into all of your favorite warm-weather activities!

Here are three more reasons why you should consider getting LASIK in preparation of the summer season:

1. You can enjoy non-prescription sunglasses.

One of the biggest hassles of wearing glasses during the summer is that you have to deal with the hassles of finding sunglasses that work for you. For instance, should you buy clip-on sunglasses that fit over top of your glasses? Should you purchases lenses that automatically tint when you step into sunlight? Should you invest the money in prescription sunglasses and just carry around two sets of glasses at all times? When you want to enjoy your summer, these are not the kinds of questions you want to be worrying about. Luckily, when you have LASIK eye surgery, all sunglasses are available for you to wear and you never have to worry about prescriptions in the sun again!

2. You will be able to swim free from restrictions.

Nothing is more annoying in the summertime than wanting to swim, but worrying about how you will see in the pool once you ditch your contact lenses or prescription glasses. In fact, being able to swim in a pool with perfect vision is one of the most tempting benefits that comes with undergoing LASIK surgery. You never have to lose in a game Marco Polo again all because you couldn’t see where you were going in the pool!

3. You can participate in summer sports.

In addition to being able to freely swim once you undergo LASIK surgery, you are also able to participate in a number of fun summer sports free from restraints when you have LASIK. For instance, you can participate in activities such as surfing, wakeboarding, water polo, kayaking, snorkeling, sailing, and a number of other fun water sports. Many of these high-activity sports require at least 2 weeks of healing time following LASIK surgery before you can participate, meaning that having LASIK this spring will have you ready just in time for summer.
