As you look ahead to the new year, wouldn’t it be nice to see things more clearly? Why winter is one of the best times for LASIK eye surgery? Many people want to have LASIK surgery in the winter to prepare themselves for the lifestyle activities they want to enjoy in the spring and summer months. Ahead are the top five reasons why you should go for LASIK this Winter:
- Reduce Spring Allergy Frustrations: Spring allergies make life miserable, for many of our contact lens-wearing patients. It can become trapped on the eye by the lenses, causing itchy, dry, red, uncomfortable eyes. With winter LASIK, you’ll be ready to smell the flowers come spring, without the extra itch that contacts can cause for patients with ocular allergies.
- Ease of Travel: Keeping your lens protected during travel can be quite inconvenience. LASIK Surgery gives you one less thing to worry about when packing for a trip.
- Use Up Remaining Funds: If you’ve still got money left in your account, it is time to start cashing in. LASIK is a covered procedure in many plans and is a great way to finish up using any remaining funds. Make sure you’re getting the most value for your benefits by using all available funds every single year.
- Use the Holidays to Recover: What tops your holiday wish list this year? Ask something different for this year. Recovery after LASIK is quick and easy for most patients. Plan on missing days of work and minimizing screen time for a week or two. LASIK is always a possibility if you’re short on time, but we’ve found that extra recovery time can make for an easier with more enjoyable experience. Take advantage of the holidays this year. If you schedule your treatment right before a work break, you can have extra time for recovery, without taking extra days off.
- Start the New Year with New Vision: We love the fresh start that a new year provides and always strive to start each new year off right. We can’t think of a better way to start 2019 than with clear vision and no glasses. Come in for LASIK this fall or winter and you’ll be ready to greet the new year with new and improved vision. We can see it now, 2019 is going to be great!
