What You'll be Able to do After LASIK that You Couldn't do Before
Whether you plan to have LASIK surgery at Bascom Palmer Eye Institute or are just starting to think about correcting your vision, your life can greatly improve when you are no longer burdened by glasses or contact lenses. Here’s how:
Get in the Game
Participating in sports such as tennis, running, soccer, and basketball becomes much easier when you don’t have to worry about wearing corrective sports goggles – or the sting you get from sweating into your contacts.
Enjoy the Show
Ever made the mistake of going to a 3-D movie wearing glasses? Big pain, wasn’t it? After LASIK, you won’t have to remember to pop in your contacts before you head to the movies.
Imagine being able to jump in a pool without having to worry about losing a contact lens. Scuba diving or even skydiving becomes a lot simpler when you can just wear the provided protective eyewear – and no longer have to worry about having protective eyewear in your exact prescription.
Wearing glasses around inquisitive, active kids and pets can be a bit nerve-wracking – prescription specs aren’t cheap, after all! After you undergo LASIK surgery, you can enjoy the freedom of playing with your children or pets without worrying about them knocking your glasses off your face — or breaking them.
Whether you’re packing for a family vacation or a business trip, you have enough to remember without worrying about corrective lenses. You probably bring your regular glasses, a spare pair, and your glasses case. If you’re a contact lens wearer, you must also bring enough contacts for your trip plus some extra, your contacts case, and solution. After LASIK surgery, you can cross these items off your packing list – forever!
Forget the hassle of prescription glasses
Let’s face it — having to wear glasses is a pain. From fumbling around for them first thing in the morning, to paying for pricey prescription sunglasses – there are a lot of downsides. They can also become lost or easily broken.
