LASIK For Back To School

August 3, 2017

For young children, going back to school at the end of summer is a tough time in their lives. For most college students, going back to school is their main focus throughout the summer. They probably already have their bags packed.

If that sounds like you, then you’re likely making sure you’ve got everything you need for your dorm or apartment this coming year. You don’t want to leave anything important behind. But there’s something else you might want to think about bringing with you to school this year—perfect vision.

What we mean is, you might want to look into LASIK for back to school. If your vision isn’t perfect, you’re likely dealing with glasses and contacts that quickly get tiresome and expensive.


With LASIK, you can sit in the back of a lecture hall and still take notes without any problems. Waking up late and forgetting your contacts doesn’t doom you to copying notes from the person sitting next to you.

College is one of the most active times of your life. Heading to and from class each day, intramurals, group meetings, and a part-time job can easily have you running all over campus and around town for most of the week.

So don’t let corrective lenses hold you back. Keeping a pair of glasses on your face all day and well into your evening study session at the library isn’t just annoying, it can even be painful. And realistically, the same goes for contacts. No one loves their contacts. They’re just another thing to remember in your morning routine and to deal with throughout the day. Keeping them in while pulling an all-nighter for your micro econ exam is practically guaranteed to leave your eyes red and irritated.

The Clear Choice

That’s why the best bet is LASIK. With everything you’ve got going on right now, isn’t it best to remove one or two complications from your daily routine? And getting LASIK now means that you’ll have clear vision for the rest of your life. Sure, you may need bifocals when you’re 60, but you’ve got a little time to prepare for that.

Having your vision corrected now just extends the amount of time you have to enjoy your perfect eyesight. Whether you’re at the library, or in the nosebleeds at the Homecoming football game, you’ll have the vision you need to see it all clearly.

Fast And Easy

And don’t worry that you’ll need some extended recovery time. Getting LASIK in the summer, even in August, still leaves you plenty of time to recover. In fact, you’ll generally be back to your normal routine within a couple days. It’s quick, easy, and painless—people are often surprised by how simple the procedure actually is. LASIK fits right into your schedule, even with a summer job or internship.

Don’t let another year go by with contacts or glasses. If you’re in the New Jersey area, then call OCLI today. We’ll set up a consultation to discuss your options for laser eye surgery, and this can be the year you see your campus in a whole new light.
