Summer is almost here and most people are looking forward to fireworks, vacations with their family, and lazy afternoons at the pool. But have you considered giving yourself the gift of better vision this summer?
LASIK is a procedure that has improved the lives of many people around the world. Imagine not having to worry about packing your glasses in your carry on or worrying about your contacts falling out in the pool.
LASIK can give you the true freedom and ease you are looking for this summer. Here are five reasons you should consider having LASIK surgery:
- Easy outpatient procedure and minimal recovery time
LASIK only takes about 10 minutes per eye and anesthesia isn’t necessary because you stay awake the entire time. Once the procedure is over you can spend your time recovering at home instead of in a hospital room.
We know you don’t want to spend your summer on the couch feeling lousy. Thankfully, the recovery time from LASIK is very quick. You may have blurry vision immediately after the procedure but your recovery period should be fairly short and your vision will most likely start to improve immediately.
- Outdoors activities
When it comes to spending time outdoors, glasses and contacts often get in the way. Nobody wants to have to worry about their glasses when they are exercising and your contacts can quickly become dry and irritated. Whatever your favorite outdoor activity may be, LASIK will help you see clearly so you can be fully present with what you are doing.
You have been planning that summer vacation with your family for months and you don’t want glasses or contacts to ruin it. LASIK will allow you to leave the contact solution, glasses, and contact case at home so you can focus on enjoying your time with your family.
Of course, LASIK surgery offers numerous benefits that you will enjoy long after summer is over. The individual results of LASIK vary from patient to patient but the majority of LASIK patients have 20/20 vision immediately following their surgery. A procedure that takes less than thirty minutes will give you results that will benefit you for the rest of your life.
