5 Reasons Why Summer Is Still a Perfect Time to Get LASIK

What are you going to do with your summer vacation? If your goal is self-improvement, think about making a quick vision fix that can benefit you for a lifetime.

Better eyesight can make life easier any time of year, but the combination of LASIK and summer brings with it distinct advantages. These are 5 things you can do if you choose to get LASIK this summer:

  1. Quick recovery. 

LASIK is painless, goes quickly and usually takes just a day or two to produce markedly improved vision. Some patients even report that they’re able to see better than ever before they’ve even left the office.

Even better, you can be back to all or most of your most rigorous summer sports, fitness regimen and honey-do list within just 1-2 weeks. 

  1. Up your game. 

Whether you’re a dedicated amateur athlete or a serious pro, your performance benefits from sharper senses – and vision is no exception. Prescription eyeglasses and contact lenses simply can’t replicate the detail you see in the outfield, endzone or on the green after LASIK vision correction.

In addition to improved, unassisted eyesight, LASIK can afford you more comfortable competition: imagine not having glasses sliding down your sweaty nose and no dust and grit in those contacts.

  1. Take a trip. 

Have you ever tallied up how much a lifetime of prescription eyeglasses and/or contact lenses really cost? Longtime wearers commonly spend tens of thousands on vision correction throughout their adult lives. Compare that to an average cost of about $2,300 per eye for permanent vision correction, and you can see why so many take the leap.

Imagine the places you could go if, every year, you could reallocate the money you were spending on glasses and contacts toward dream vacations instead. Then, when someone asks you what you did with your summer vacation, you’ll have so many riveting stories to tell.

  1. Travel carefree. 

In the eyecare world, we encounter many patients who travel with their vision correction supplies: reading glasses, eyeglasses for distance, sunglasses, contact lenses, lens cleaning solutions, etc. It’s a huge inconvenience to lug them along – and an even bigger inconvenience when you accidentally leave it all at home.

Wouldn’t it be great to just pick up and go for a swim or a museum outing with one less thing – or several fewer things – to worry about grabbing on the way out the door? You could enjoy all the sights, near or far, dark or light, big or small, without carrying around supplies you could lose along the way.

  1. Get extra-ready to return to school. 

If you’re a student or a teacher, you know you rely on your eyes more than many people. You need to be able to see the chalkboard, whiteboard, books and computer screen clearly so you can fully interact in your educational environment. Students with good eyesight struggle less to learn and have a more pleasant experience overall, so start or continue your education career better equipped for success.
