Have you been thinking about what your New Year’s resolution should be? Are you trying to figure out a way to start off the new year on the right foot? 

One of the best things you can do is make a resolution that positively impacts your health. An easy health-related resolution is to get LASIK eye surgery. 

New Year’s is an excellent time to decide to get LASIK for a variety of reasons. To begin with, it is a New Year’s resolution that will benefit you for the rest of your life! 

Also, winter is a great season to get LASIK because most people want to stay indoors and out of the sun. This makes it an ideal time for your eyes to heal. 

Like any surgery, you need to take time to rest and let your eyes heal correctly. Keep reading to learn why you should start off 2020 with LASIK

Experience Clearer Vision

One of the biggest benefits of LASIK is that most patients achieve 20/20 vision or better. This is due to the technology used for the procedure. 

Think about starting the year off without worrying about your glasses or contacts!

Save Money

Glasses, contacts, and prescriptions can put a dent in your wallet. On average, most people spend at least $500 per year on glasses and contacts, plus accessories! 

When people think about getting LASIK, many get cold feet because of the up-front cost. What they may not realize is LASIK actually pays for itself and saves you money over time. 

Just think about what you could do with an extra $500 every year! Not having to pay for glasses or contacts puts that money back into your pocket. Who doesn’t like saving money? 


Imagine a life without the irritation that comes from wearing contacts or having glasses fall off your face. LASIK makes this possible.  

Don’t forget that you will wake up well-rested and able to see every morning as well! No more fumbling around for your glasses blindly. Instead, you can see your alarm clock with perfect clarity right from your bed. Doesn’t that sound amazing? 

Makes Traveling Easier

Getting LASIK makes traveling so much easier! You do not have to worry about forgetting your contacts, contact solution or glasses. 

Say goodbye to wondering how you’ll pack enough spare glasses and contacts. Wouldn’t it be nice to relax on vacation for a change? LASIK makes this a reality! 

Enjoy Winter Activities

Love winter? LASIK makes winter even better!  You can walk around in the cold and enjoy Christmas lights, skiing, and a good book by the fire without any worries. No glasses or contacts necessary. 

Love winter sports? LASIK helps with those as well. Ice skating and hockey are a lot easier when you don’t have to deal with glasses falling off your face. 

Plenty Of Time Off From Work To Recover

The holidays are a great time to get LASIK because you have plenty of time off from work. The recovery period from LASIK is short, so you typically do not need a lot of time to heal. 

Most people need one day to recover, so maximize your time off from work. Patients can go back to many of their normal activities the day after surgery.
