Why LASIK Is Perfect For True Jersey Guys and Gals

January 18, 2017

Ah, Jersey—where the air is cleaner, the grass is greener, and boardwalk beckons during those summer months. Like a lot of places, you just don’t really get it unless you’ve lived here for years, and being born and raised here might be the only way to truly understand. Still, Jersey isn’t like most places, and there are plenty of things that you have to see to believe. And speaking of seeing, we’ve put together a list of reasons that LASIK would be perfect for any true son or daughter of Jersey.

Because Pumping Gas Isn’t As Simple As It Looks

Well, actually it pretty much is, but when you haven’t had to do it for most of your life, almost anything becomes complicated. New Jersey and Oregon are the only states in the Union that require gas attendants to pump gas for customers, and there’s a whole lot of states between here and Oregon. That means at some point you’re going to have to buckle down and do it yourself. Trust us when we say you don’t want to be squinting when you keep an eye on the gallons and dollars you’re racking up.

The Turnpike

Speaking of gas and cars, you’re playing with fire if you don’t have excellent vision when you get on the Turnpike, Parkway, or Expressway. Whether it’s the strange traffic merges, oblivious drivers with their eyes on their phones, or just the general wildness that is driving in Jersey, crystal clear vision will ensure you get home safe and sound.

Finding Wawa

And without that fantastic vision, how are you going to spot the right exit for Wawa when you need to stop and get, well, pretty much anything. Whether you’re jonesing for a buffalo chicken cheesesteak or just need to grab some road trip staples to get you through the next hour or two, Wawa is the go-to for any Jersey girl or guy when they’re in a pinch. Plus, you might just be able to use that great vision to spy a Super Wawa, and get gas while you munch on your sub.

How Else Can You Truly Enjoy The Garden State?

Many out-of-staters laugh when they hear “The Garden State” because all they know about New Jersey they got from The Sopranos. But yes, Jersey does actually have farms, and the produce is top notch. And driving around Jersey you can find just about any of the activities and landscapes that you love just an hour or two away. Beaches, lakes, rivers, hiking, skiing—anyone from Jersey knows that it’s all within reach. So why wouldn’t you want to have the best vision possible in order to enjoy everything that our great state has to offer? It just makes sense.

If you’re a true son or daughter of Jersey, and want to take a new look at your home with LASIK, then give us a call today and we can set up a consultation.
