5 Reasons Spring Is Time for LASIK

Posted by: Missouri Eye Institute in Blog on March 20, 2023

Healing from LASIK is usually so quick, most patients have tremendous flexibility in scheduling their vision correction surgery. All you need is a few days to yourself to relax and recuperate from LASIK before resuming regular routines. 

Still, for those considering LASIK in Missouri, it helps to choose a window of time that is most favorable for comfortable healing. Here are five things that make springtime a great time for LASIK:

  1. The bustle of the holidays is over.

By early spring, most of us are well past all the holiday gatherings, gift shopping (and the inevitable returns) and party planning that keep us so busy in winter. That means a more relaxed schedule in which to plan LASIK surgery.

  1. There’s less risk of catching an illness.

The pleasant weather of springtime in Missouri inspires us to get out of the house to enjoy more time in the fresh air – and that means less exposure to colds, flus and other viruses that thrive indoors. It goes without saying, healing after LASIK is much more comfortable if you can do it without fighting illness at the same time.

Note: We at Missouri Eye Institute perform rigorous sanitation to prevent the spread of viruses on our premises at all times. By keeping our patients in good overall health, we can help them enjoy a fast recovery after their procedures.

  1. Spring’s natural light is easy on sensitive eyes.

During the quick LASIK recovery period, your eyes may be a bit more sensitive to light. For this reason, many LASIK patients prefer the spring. Think about it: There’s no blazing summer sun, nor the risk of snow blindness after winter storms.

  1. Freezing temperatures won’t aggravate dry eye syndrome.

Springtime in Missouri can be ideal for LASIK. Without the frigid temperatures and dry winter air (which are uncomfortable on the eyes), the springtime warm-up is a great time for LASIK. This is especially important for people with dry eye syndrome, who may experience some mild relief in the spring.

  1. You’ll be summer adventure-ready.

If you wear prescription contact lenses or eyeglasses you know how inconvenient they are at the pool, lake, beach or even just the shower. By getting LASIK in springtime, you’ll be ready for swimming and watersports in plenty of time for a carefree summer.

You don’t have to wait for ideal weather to discuss LASIK with an eye care specialist. Contact Missouri Eye Institute to schedule a LASIK consultation. Together we can settle on a treatment timeline that fits your schedule.
