5 Reasons To Get LASIK Before You Travel

5 Reasons To Get LASIK Before You Travel

Traveling can be one of life's greatest joys, offering new experiences, cultures, and memories. However, for those who rely on glasses or contact lenses, it can also bring a unique set of challenges. If you’re planning a trip, now might be the perfect time to consider LASIK eye surgery.

Here are several compelling reasons why getting laser eye surgery before you travel can make your journey easier, more enjoyable, and even more cost-effective.


Freedom from Glasses and Contacts

Traveling often involves long flights, changing climates, and unpredictable schedules. Glasses can become uncomfortable during long periods of wear, while contacts can dry out, especially in airplane cabins.

But imagine exploring new destinations without the hassles of glasses and contacts! With LASIK, it’s possible to see clearly without the need for corrective eyewear, letting you travel with one less thing on your mind. It can offer enhanced comfort and convenience throughout your journey. Your eyes will likely feel more natural and less irritated, making your travel experience smoother and more enjoyable.

Simplified Packing List

It’s not that you’ll only have less to think about after LASIK, but also fewer items to pack. When you're preparing for a trip, packing can be stressful. Adding glasses, contacts, solutions, prescription sunglasses, and backup pairs to your list can be cumbersome.

Post-LASIK, your packing list can become significantly lighter. You’ll have more space in your luggage for souvenirs and essentials, and you won’t need to worry about forgetting or losing your eyewear.

Enjoy Water Activities More Easily

Many popular travel destinations feature beautiful beaches, pools, and water sports. Wearing glasses while swimming or snorkeling is impractical, and contacts can be risky due to potential infections from water exposure. But LASIK can allow you to fully enjoy water activities without concerns about your vision.

Plus, with a typically quick recovery, most patients don’t need to avoid water activities for very long post-LASIK. We’ll give you all the information you need to know about recovery from LASIK before the procedure, including a recommended activity schedule.

Saves Money Over Time

While LASIK involves an upfront investment, it can lead to savings in the long term by reducing (or even eliminating) the costs associated with contacts and glasses. That means, you’ll have more money to put towards other things, such as traveling. Use our savings calculator to see how much you can save after LASIK.

LASIK Has a Quick Recovery

One of the benefits of LASIK is its quick recovery. Most patients see an immediate improvement in their vision post-procedure and are back to their normal routine within a day. Even if you have travel plans quickly approaching, it’s possible to undergo LASIK and be completely healed in a short time frame.
