6 Ways LASIK Makes The Holidays Easier
The holiday season may be one of the busiest times of the year, but it’s still a great opportunity to get LASIK. One of the benefits of LASIK is its quick recovery time. Most of our patients are back to their normal routines within 24-hours, and often don’t need to take time off from work or school. You won’t need to worry about LASIK interrupting your holiday plans.
The surgery itself is also quick. You can expect to be in the clinic for a few hours on the day of your procedure, but the LASIK surgery only takes around 10 to 15 minutes to complete, with the laser used for less than a minute on each eye.
The benefits of clear vision are life-changing, and they can be especially helpful during the holidays by providing you with more flexibility and freedom in your daily life. Here are some of the ways LASIK can make the holidays easier.
Get Dressed With Less Hassle
If you wear glasses, it can make wearing winter accessories like hats and ski goggles difficult or uncomfortable. They can also be a hassle if you wear makeup, since glasses will hide your eye makeup and can make it difficult to comfortably wear long, false lashes or extensions.
Although contact lenses may not pose the same issues, they add additional steps (and time) to your routine since you must carefully put them in and take them out every day. Moreover, they’re also difficult to put in if you’ve already applied eye makeup.
After LASIK, you won’t have to worry about how glasses and contacts interfere with what you’re wearing and getting ready. You’ll have one less thing on your mind.
No More Foggy Glasses
Winter weather (including rain) is a hassle for people who wear glasses since the lenses can easily fog up due to temperature changes. It’s easy to become annoyed when you constantly need to take your glasses off to rub the fog away to see. But LASIK can offer freedom from glasses, so you won’t have to bother with foggy lenses.
No More Dry Eyes From Contacts
Wearing contacts can also be troublesome in the winter months. Contact lenses are known to cause dry eye, and cold temperatures can exacerbate the symptoms even further. Some people find it impossible to wear contacts in winter as a result.
LASIK can eliminate the need for contact lenses, resolving this issue. While dry eye is a normal symptom after LASIK, it lessens as the eyes heal. Our eye care experts will monitor your symptoms closely after the surgery and provide you with ways to combat dry eye symptoms in the meantime, such as using lubricating eye drops.
Easier To Enjoy Winter Activities
Glasses and contact lenses can be bothersome when playing sports, especially in the winter. For example, you’ll need to invest in specialty goggles designed to wear with glasses if you ski or snowboard.
There’s also a chance your glasses could fly off and break, like if you fall when skating or go too fast sledding down a hill. Similarly, if you wear contact lenses, there’s a risk one could become dislodged during an intensive activity.
After LASIK, you won’t have to think twice about how your glasses or contacts may interfere with winter activities, giving you more freedom to get it on the fun.
LASIK Can Help You Save Money
The holidays can be expensive, but another reason to get LASIK is because it can save you money in the long run. It can reduce or eliminate the cost of glasses, prescription sunglasses, contact lenses, and contact lens solution.
