Why Detroit Is Better After LASIK

Let’s be honest: Most people with eyeglasses and contact lenses would gladly ditch the ‘scrips if they could. Your entire world is sharper, clearer and richer when you enjoy better vision. 

The most reliable way to achieve consistently good eyesight is not through artificial visual aids but through excellent natural vision, such as what our patients experience after LASIK vision correction or the ZEISS SMILE procedure. After laser vision correction, patients report greatly improved vision almost immediately after surgery – and a more carefree lifestyle for many years to come.

For those of you who reside in and around Detroit, there are additional benefits unique to residents of the Great Lakes State. 

Temperature extremes won’t drive your eyes crazy. 

Michigan is known for frigid winters complete with heavy snowfalls and subzero readings on the thermometer. Summers couldn’t be more different, with mercury routinely rising into the high 90s. It seems one day you’re dealing with the annoyance of foggy eyeglass lenses in the cold, then the next you’re trying to keep stinging sweat away from your contacts.

After LASIK, you can take in outdoor attractions in Detroit in comfort, such as the quirky and colorful Heidelberg Project in the McDougall-Hunt neighborhood. The outsized art installation features a number of homes creatively decorated with original and salvaged artwork, knickknacks, fixtures and more.

You’ll see more of the Motor City’s nuances, no matter how large or small. 

From the intricate custom tile murals at Motawi Tileworks (in nearby Ann Arbor) all the way up to the soaring lobby ceiling of the historic Guardian Building in downtown Detroit, wonders of every size are infinitely clearer after LASIK. You’ll find yourself noticing details of the Guardian’s stunning décor you never knew existed and appreciating Motowi’s craftsmanship like never before.

You can say goodbye to switching eyeglasses to see near and far. 

Nothing drives home the benefits of LASIK like Detroit’s eclectic museums. With installations that blend both educational and visual elements, it’s common to see visitors wearing distance eyeglasses to view sweeping displays then donning bifocals to inspect the finer details or read fascinating facts from the placards. After laser eye surgery, those same people could easily pivot from one exciting feature to another without switching eyewear. 

What better place to put improved eyesight to the test than Dabls MBAD African Bead Museum? Inside is an artisan’s wonderland packed front to back with every bauble and bead imaginable. Outside, tens of thousands of these colorful pieces are arranged into vast installations that stretch for nearly a block.
