3 Top Reasons to Get LASIK for the Summer

If you’ve been wondering, “Am I a candidate for LASIK eye surgery?” now’s the perfect time to find out. With summer just around the corner and beach days in high demand, we’re all looking for ways to enjoy ourselves more. That just might mean finally appreciating fun in the sun without worrying about smudged lenses, losing glasses in the sand or dried-out contact lenses.

Still on the fence? Here are three reasons you should consider getting LASIK in time for summer.

1. No More Glasses on the ‘Gram 

You’re already thinking about flooding your social media accounts with pictures of your vacation exploits and park picnics, but nobody wants a bunch of ruined images thanks to sun glare or squinty eyes. If you’re at least 18 years old, in general good health, have relatively stable vision and meet other key requirements, you may be eligible for LASIK surgery to significantly reduce or even eliminate your dependency on glasses.

2. Better Sight, Even While You’re Swimming

LASIK isn’t a one-size-fits-all technique but rather a sophisticated surgical approach to vision correction that can be tailored to meet your needs. If you are nearsighted, farsighted or have astigmatism, LASIK could help. By creating a more long-lasting substitute to glasses or contacts, LASIK gives you more freedom, more flexibility, and more options for everything from fashion to physical activity.

3. Fast Recovery

A procedure with such life-changing benefits seems like it should come with a lengthy recovery, but LASIK doesn’t require that. Instead, you could have your LASIK procedure on a Friday and be back to your typical routine Monday morning (with your doctor’s approval, of course). Thanks to anesthetic eye drops, you won’t feel more than a bit of pressure during the procedure, and side effects are typically minimal as well.
