8 Fall Activities That LASIK Makes Easier
Fall only lasts for three months, so it’s important to ensure you make the most of this festive season. There are tons of activities you can only do in the crisp autumn months, like apple picking, visiting a pumpkin patch, and finding your way through a corn maze.
Completing all the activities on your fall bucket list shouldn’t be daunting –it should be exciting! One way you can make it easier to accomplish all of your seasonal plans is by discovering the benefits of clear vision.
Glasses and contacts often come with major inconveniences, some of which are more evident than others. That’s where LASIK eye surgery comes. Once you achieve freedom from glasses and contacts, you’ll realize how much easier it is to accomplish all of your plans every season. Below, we look at how LASIK makes some of our favourite fall activities easier to enjoy.
Going to a pumpkin patch.
When you’re picking out a pumpkin, you need precision and clarity to see which gourd is the best. After LASIK, you won’t need to worry about wearing glasses or contacts to see clearly. You’ll be able to identify the perfect pumpkin from a mile away.
Plus, clear vision makes it easier when it comes time to carve your pumpkin, as you won’t have to worry about pulp and seeds getting on the lenses of your glasses when things get messy.
Jumping in piles of leaves.
If you’re participating in an activity that requires swift movement, like jumping into piles of leaves, there’s always a chance your glasses could fall off and become broken or lost. Even with contacts, there’s still a slim risk they could move around or become dislodged.
But the beauty of LASIK is that it allows you to perform a wide range of activities without thinking about how your glasses or contacts may be impacted, leaving you with one less thing on your mind.
Finding your way in a corn maze.
It goes without saying that you need good vision when trying to solve any sort of puzzle, including a corn maze. Many patients have 20/20 vision or better after their LASIK surgery, and they often see results immediately after their procedure. This comes in handy when you’re stuck in a corn maze where every corner looks the same!
Watching scary movies.
Blurry vision is no fun when watching a movie, as it can ruin the entire experience. But even though your glasses may help you see the screen better, they come with their own annoyances. For example, with frames, you can’t lay down on your side without discomfort or risking damage to your glasses. Even though following your LASIK procedure, this will no longer be a problem. You can watch the movie of your choice in any comfortable position without thinking about how your glasses may interfere. The only question is deciding which Halloween flick to put on first!
Walking through a haunted house.
Although glasses and contact lenses give you clear enough vision to see the spooky things ahead of you in a haunted house, they can be a problem if you get scared and make a sudden move.
If you jolt backwards or turn directions, your glasses can fly off your face. If there are other people in your group trying to run away, they may step on your frames without realizing. Even with contacts, there’s always a risk they could move or become dislodged, leaving you with uncomfortable or compromised vision for the rest of the experience.
LASIK reduces or eliminates dependency on glasses and contacts, giving you with one less thing to worry about. That way, you only have to be scared of the haunted house, not the risk of losing your glasses or contacts.
Hiking with the family.
Fall is arguably one of the most beautiful seasons, and you only have a limited time to witness the changing color of the leaves. That’s why it’s the perfect season to round up the family to do something outdoors, like a hike.
If you wear glasses, then you know how annoying it is when they fog up as you start to sweat. Or, if the sweat gets into your eyes while you’re wearing contacts, it can cause irritation. Luckily, after LASIK, you’ll never face these inconveniences again when enjoying a hike, no matter the season.
Enjoying a hot beverage.
If you wear glasses, then then you're likely familiar with the struggle of your lenses fogging up while trying to sip on a hot drink, like a pumpkin spice latte or hot chocolate. Even a warm cup of soup can do the same. But once you find freedom from glasses with LASIK, this is one thing you’ll never have to worry about again. You can enjoy all of your favourite fall treats with ease.
Dressing up for Halloween.
One of the best parts of fall is Halloween, and LASIK makes it easier to enjoy all of the spooky festivities associated with this holiday by ridding you of the inconveniences of glasses and contacts.
After laser vision correction, you won’t have to worry about whether your glasses interfere with or don’t match your costume. You can rock a full face of makeup without your frames hitting your fake eyelashes, hiding your colorful eye shadow, or smudging your face paint. Plus, there’s no risk your glasses will fall off while trick-or-treating or busting out a new dance move. Additionally, you won’t have to worry about wearing contacts for an extended period of time or taking them out when the night ends.
Finally, it should also be mentioned that LASIK eye surgery helps save you money in the long run. While it may seem like an expensive investment, LASIK helps reduce recurring costs associated with prescription glasses, contact lenses, and contact lens solution. This way, you’ll have more money to put towards completing everything your bucket list this fall and for seasons to come.
