Young ladies having fun

Are you over wearing your glasses or contacts lenses? Do you get continuous dry eye from your contact lenses?

Have you ever wondered what life would be like without glasses or contacts? While glasses and contacts are good at improving your vision, they are a temporary fix.

If any of these thoughts have gone through your head, it might be time for LASIK! Wouldn’t you love to goodbye to your contacts or glasses forever?

There’s no bad time to undergo LASIK, but keep reading for four reasons why summer is better after LASIK!

Warmer Temperatures

Summer means warmer weather, and we want to be outside as much as possible. We can’t wait to be swimming, hiking, and sailing in the beautiful sunshine!

Any activity is better when you don’t have to worry about wearing glasses for it. Glasses can break, fall off or get in the way of your fun!

Contact lenses are not the best either, especially if you enjoy water activities. When water hits your face, contacts can move or fall out.

It is important to avoid touching your eyes if you have sand on your hands. Sand can easily get under your contact lenses and irritate your eye.

The best solution is having your vision improved by undergoing LASIK before summer! Wouldn’t you rather enjoy your favorite outdoor activities without glasses or contacts?

Allergy Relief

Summer is one of the nicest seasons, but it can be one of the hardest for people with allergies. The warm weather is hard to enjoy when you are wiping your red itchy eyes or sneezing.

For some people, over the counter medications do not work. LASIK can help reduce your allergy symptoms. Many patients experience fewer allergy symptoms post-surgery.

This is even more pertinent if you wear contacts, since they can irritate your eyes even more. Allergies and eyewear just don’t mix!

Travel More

As the weather gets warmer, there are more vacations and reasons to travel. Traveling with glasses or contact lenses is challenging. You deserve to enjoy your vacation.

Post LASIK, you can swim, scuba dive and more without having to worry about your glasses or contacts! When was the last time you went on vacation and didn’t have to worry about contact lens solution?

It’s all about the little things and small ways that LASIK makes your life better.

Busy Calendar

Summer is one of the busiest times of the year. It’s full of outdoor parties, weddings and other social activities.

These events are important because you get to see people you have not seen in a while. We want to look our best during these times! LASIK surgery gives you clear vision and the ability to enjoy events to the fullest.

During most events, people take pictures. Getting LASIK lets you feel more confident without glasses or having to worry about how you look. Now you can take a great picture worry free!
