5 Ways LASIK Makes Summer Better

Posted by: Missouri Eye Institute in Blog on July 8, 2022

Any hobby, sport or leisure activity you enjoy during the summer months only improve after LASIK. That’s because everything’s more enjoyable with better eyesight – and with freedom from glasses and contacts.

Here are the top five ways LASIK could make your summer a whole lot better.

  1. You won’t have to fear the water.

If you wear contacts, you already know not to shower wearing your contacts. (We suppose you could still wear your glasses, but then wet eyewear isn’t going to do you much good.)

So, it goes without saying that you have to find a work-around for your eyewear if you’re at the lake, the ocean, river or any other water source that isn’t sterile. Unsterile water can invite bacteria and lead to nasty infections.

But what if you could just go and do whatever you wanted without a care in the world about storing glasses and contacts, and still being able to see the action? After LASIK, our patients enjoy a much more carefree experience on or in the water:

  1. No more gritty contact lenses or dirty eyeglasses.

Whether you’re kicking back on the beach or kicking up dust on the trail, there are a whole lot of summer hazards for people who wear glasses and contacts. If you’ve ever gotten grit stuck under a contact lens, you know how painful it can be. Once you’ve had LASIK though, that’s a thing of the past. Just don your slickest shades. Or don’t. The choice is yours.

  1. Your eyes – and you – will be sharper on the field.

Imaging running for the deep-outfield catch and getting a glare on your eyeglasses. Ugh! Who needs it? Get sharper vision though LASIK laser eye surgery and you can keep your eye on the ball without visual aids.

  1. You’ll see all the sights on your next trip.

Whether you’re gazing at the Grand Canyon or reading a grand adventure novel in tranquility, your eyes can handle it after LASIK. No more switching glasses or hoping your contact lens prescription allows you to take in everything big and small.

  1. No more schlepping around glasses, contacts and contact lens supplies!

After LASIK, summer traveling gets much less complicated. No need to worry about packing lenses, cleaning solution, lens cases, back-up glasses, etc. Being carefree – that’s what summer is all about.

If you’ve been thinking about LASIK vision correction, consider making this the summer you get it done. Get started with a quick LASIK self-test to see if you might be a candidate.
