4 Reasons To Get LASIK This Summer

Do you want to enjoy camping this summer? Are water activities your favorite part of enjoying warmer weather?

One thing that can make these activities difficult is worrying about your vision. Contacts and glasses improve your vision, but they can also complicate your life.

If you want to be able to enjoy summer without worrying about glasses or contacts, LASIK could be a good option. As you learn more about the procedure, you need to determine if you are a good candidate. Keep reading for 4 reasons you should get LASIK this summer!

1. Take Part In More Outdoor Activities

As the weather becomes warmer and the sky is clearer, it’s natural to want to be outside. If you’re at all active, activities like hiking, running, sailing, camping, or baseball are better outside!

There is nothing like spending a night around the campfire singing and roasting marshmallows with friends and family. But for many summer activities, glasses and contacts do not mix.

Glasses can break or fall off, while your contacts can make your eyes more irritated. If you want to take part in water activities, contact lenses are not a good option.

If water gets into your eyes, your contact could move around or fall out. Love sunny beach days?

Glasses and contacts alike don’t get along very well at the beach! With sand and waves, the beach is almost guaranteed to cause some sort of damage to your eyewear.

Sand can get stuck under your contact lenses and irritate your eyes. Want to enjoy your summer without worries? LASIK is a pretty good solution!

2. Finally Get Some Allergy Relief

If you have allergies, summer can be one of the worst seasons. You want to be outside and enjoy the good weather, but your eyes only become more irritated.

Every time you go outside, you start sneezing, blowing your nose, and end up with red and irritated eyes. For some, over the counter medications can help. But if you want to give your eyes some real relief, LASIK can work wonders.

What you may not realize is that wearing contact lenses can make your eye allergies worse. This is due to allergens potentially getting trapped under your contact lenses.

If pollen gets on your hands and then you touch your contacts, now you have pollen in your eyes. This causes your eyes to become irritated and watery, among other uncomfortable symptoms.

If you get LASIK, you can say goodbye to wearing contacts, including during allergy season!

3. Enjoy Traveling

Summer is one of the best times of the year for trips and traveling. Traveling is already stressful, but it can be even more stressful if you also wear glasses or contacts.

Don’t you want to enjoy your vacation for once? LASIK will let you do that! After a short recovery period, you can enjoy water activities, frolic at the beach, or go for a hike without worrying about your vision.

4. Look Your Best, No Matter What

For those that wear glasses, it can sometimes be hard to feel pretty. The summer is all about seeing people, including those you may not have seen for a long time.

Maybe it’s a friend’s wedding, a baby shower, or a BBQ on the weekend. Why should your eyeglasses cause you any more stress?

LASIK lets you put all your self-esteem issues to rest once and for all. No more worrying about glare coming off your glasses during a group picture or if your contacts will dry out at the wrong time.

Instead, you can look your best in every situation! The best part? You can see clearly while you look amazing!
