Why Summer Is a Great Time to Get LASIK
Written by Shannon Wong on July 27, 2018
Are you tired of relying on glasses or contact lenses to see clearly yet continue to postpone having LASIK? If so, Austin Eye encourages you to schedule a LASIK eye consultation soon. LASIK is a quick and painless procedure that requires very little downtime, meaning you can achieve clearer vision and still enjoy the rest of summer. By having LASIK eye surgery this summer, you can:
Soak up the sun at the beach. Enjoy time at the beach or pool without worrying about breaking or losing your glasses, or getting sand in your contact lenses.
Take a dip in the pool. Swimming with contact lenses is off limits. After LASIK, you can dive into the water without the hassle of taking out your contacts.
Enjoy the great outdoors. Whether it’s camping, hiking or taking a leisurely stroll, LASIK can help you take in all of the beautiful sights Mother Nature has to offer with clear vision.
Play your favorite sports. Wearing glasses or contact lenses while playing sports is both annoying and dangerous. LASIK allows you to play your favorite sport at your optimal level without worrying about breaking your glasses or, even worse, injuring yourself.
Look stylish. Finding prescription sunglasses you actually like can be a hassle. With LASIK, you can pick out the most fashionable pair and step outdoors at a moment’s notice.
Travel stress-free. After LASIK, you don’t have to worry about packing your glasses, or losing or breaking them while on vacation.
Travel more comfortably. Airplane air is dry, which can make flight travel uncomfortable for contact lens wearers.
Be ready for school in the fall. By having LASIK done now, you will be fully recovered once school starts in the fall and able to take your classes head on with clear vision.
Save money. While it is true LASIK requires a large upfront cost, the procedure can actually help you save thousands of dollars on lifetime vision correction-related costs. Learn more about the cost of LASIK and prescription eyewear here.
Boost your self-confidence. You will love the way you look without glasses! Looking and feeling great will undoubtedly encourage you to enjoy the rest of summer to the fullest.
