There are some things that we hate saying goodbye to – friends before a big move, your childhood home before it’s sold, and of course summer. Then there are some things we cannot wait to bid farewell. You can count the hassles of glasses and contacts among that list of things.
Of course, when it comes to corrective tools like glasses and contacts we have a lot to be thankful for. These are the items that allow us to see clearly, drive safely, and be included in activities with our peers. But there are also times when they can be an absolute pain to deal with and nothing sends these annoyances packing like a successful LASIK procedure.
Worrying About Getting Sand In Your Eye At The Beach
Beach days are usually synonymous with relaxation. You pack into a car with some friends, dig up your swimsuit, and head out with a cooler and a towel. Unless you wear glasses or contacts. If you are one of these people, beach trips are sometimes more trouble than they are worth. You need to bring either glasses or contacts if you want to see, but the question is which?
You could wear your glasses, but then you may worry about losing them in the ocean while you are swimming. If you choose to go without them while in the water, it is uncomfortable to be unable to see and stressful because you will worry about your pricey specs left on the beach. If you want to wear sunglasses, you have to look silly and throw them over your prescription glasses. Even if you wear prescription sunglasses you are back to square one worrying about these expensive shades.
And then there’s contacts. Sand in the eyes while wearing contacts? Enough said.
After undergoing LASIK, these are all problems you won’t have to concern yourself with. You can find out what it actually means to have a carefree beach day.
Remembering Your Eye Care Supplies While Traveling
Traveling can be a stressful experience, especially when it comes to packing. For those who need glasses, contacts, and contact solution for their day-to-day life, packing for a trip can be additionally exasperating. Glasses break, and if you go abroad only to suffer a mishap, it can be days before you can get your prescription replaced, which seriously takes away from your trip. And then there’s the issue of ensuring you have enough contact solution for your carry-on in travel-sized containers in order to get through security.
Getting LASIK means there is one (or two or three) less items to pack for your next trip. Do away with the glasses and contacts and go hiking, exploring, scuba diving, and jet setting with added comfort.
Taking Your Contacts Out Before Bed
We’ve all been there. It’s been a long day, you’re finally home, and all you want to do is collapse in your bed for some shut eye. But you can’t, because you wear contacts and in order to keep your eyes healthy you drag yourself to the bathroom, wash up, take out your contacts and go through the lens rinsing ritual. LASIK virtually eliminates this process.
