Summer is in full swing, and with so many events and activities happening, vision care might be the furthest thing from your mind. But if your eyesight is less than perfect, and if you’ve ever dreamed of having clear 20/20 vision without the hassle of glasses or contact lenses, summer is actually an ideal time to treat yourself to LASIK vision correction.
Here are four reasons to take the plunge into vision correction this summer.
You Can Travel A Lot Lighter
Whether you’re visiting a nearby city or flying to another country, when you pack lighter, your trips tend to be a lot smoother. But if you’re a traveler who wears glasses or contacts, there are a number of things that you have to bring with you — glasses cases, backup glasses, contact lens cases, and contact lens solution. All of these items end up taking up quite a bit of room in your luggage. Fortunately, when you have corrective eye surgery, you’ll have crystal clear vision without the hassle of glasses or contacts, so you can take back control of your luggage space and use it for more important things, like souvenirs!
Swim Free From Vision Restrictions
Trying to swim with glasses is a total pain and swimming with contact lenses is just downright dangerous since water-borne bacteria can result in eye infections, irritation or even sight-threatening conditions, like a corneal ulcer. (Talk about putting a damper on your summer fun!) Once you treat yourself to LASIK vision correction, you’ll be able to enjoy a swim or your favorite water sports without being hampered by glasses or seeing less than clearly.
Play Sports Without Worry of Hassle
When playing sports, there’s nothing more annoying than constantly adjusting your glasses or having to search the floor for a lost contact lens in the middle of a game. After having LASIK vision correction, you no longer have to worry about bothersome restraint of glasses or the risk of losing a contact lens. Participate in any sport or activity with clear vision and nothing to get in the way of a winning outcome!
Go Into the Holiday Season With Perfect Sight
As we’re a little over halfway through the year, there are only a few months to go until the Fall and Winter festivities start to come into full swing. If you undergo corrective eye surgery now while it’s still summer, you’ll be fully ready to take in all the breathtaking colors of Autumn and the magical bright lights of the holidays without needing to wear frames or worrying about your contacts drying out and becoming uncomfortable due to dry air that comes with indoor heating.
So What are My Options for Corrective Eye Surgery?
There are a few options when it comes to choosing which corrective eye surgery is best for you and your lifestyle. They include LASIK, LASEK, Refractive Lens Exchange, and more. For details on what treatments are available and to find out which one would be right for you, be sure to consult with a qualified eye surgeon. And although eyes can take multiple months to realize the treatment’s full potential, patients typically experience improved vision and are able to do light activities just days after the procedure — so, schedule a visit with your eye doctor now because there’s still time for you to soak up summer with clear, restriction-free vision!
Whatever the season, it’s always a good time to have LASIK vision correction, but getting your procedure done in the summer offers particularly unique benefits compared to the rest of the year.
