There’s no time like the present to change your life. One of the best ways to do this is by getting a procedure like LASIK.
It may seem unlikely, but achieving visual freedom and saying goodbye to your glasses and contacts (for good!) can change everything! Keep reading to learn about 7 small ways LASIK will transform your life!
- Spend less time getting ready in the morning
If you wear contact lenses, they can get in the ay. Whenever you’re in a hurry, that’s the time when you drop one on the floor or accidentally put one on inside out.
The time that you spend putting in your contact lenses every morning could be spent doing something else. You could meditate and find your center before going to work, or pay more attention to your dog and get in a snuggle or two before you walk out the door.
How you start your morning is important because that’s the tone you set for the rest of your day. Wouldn’t you rather not have a stressed-out morning? Getting LASIK is an easy solution because you can say goodbye to putting in your contacts forever!
- Stress less if you get caught in the rain
New England weather can be unpredictable, especially in Boston. How many times have you been caught in the rain while wearing your glasses?
It’s anything but fun! No matter how much you wipe your glasses off, they just stay wet and you can’t see through them.
Eventually, the only thing you can do is take them off and wander home blindly. Wouldn’t it be great if getting caught in the rain wasn’t such a catastrophe?
After having LASIK, you might find yourself enjoying rainstorms. Why not?
You don’t have to worry about accidentally misplacing or breaking your glasses anymore. If you wear contacts, you don’t have to think about if your contact will somehow fall out or get stuck either. LASIK gives you the opportunity to be spontaneous again!
- No more fogged up glasses when you try to cook dinner
Some people love cooking, but when you wear glasses, it becomes a little more difficult. There’s something about wearing them while you’re trying to cook dinner and they keep fogging up on you.
It’s not only frustrating, but it can cause you to burn your dinner! If you’re tired of the hassle, why not get LASIK?
Foggy glasses can happen in any season. If you walk from a hot place into a cool one, it’s inevitable. With LASIK, glasses can become a thing of the past.
- Binge watch your favorite shows while you pull an all-nighter
If you wear contact lenses, there’s a point you hit where your eyes start to feel uncomfortable. This makes it a lot more difficult to binge-watch your favorite shows.
Usually, you have to get up and pause what you’re watching to take out your contacts. Then, you have to wear your glasses instead. Glasses aren’t much better, since you really shouldn’t fall asleep in them.
If you do, you run the risk of breaking them or even losing them in your bed! A new pair of glasses is expensive, especially if you’re not expecting the cost.
If you want to binge-watch your shows like Dead To Me, Tiger King, or the latest Netflix true crime documentary, LASIK is the way to go. It’s a permanent procedure because your cornea is reshaped and all refractive errors are corrected in full.
That means if you’re nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism, these refractive errors are all fixed permanently. This allows you to watch your favorite shows in peace! You can fall asleep watching them because you don’t need to worry about glasses or contacts anymore.
- Step up your style and increase your self-confidence
One of the things that makes LASIK so popular is the fact that it means no more glasses. For many people, glasses are the bane of their existence.
You can buy a few pairs and plan your outfits around them, but it’s not ideal. Some people don’t like how their face looks with their glasses on, and it affects their self-confidence.
If you want to step up your style and increase your self-confidence at the same time, getting LASIK is a great decision! If you feel like glasses have been holding you back, LASIK is the best choice.
Many people use getting LASIK as a launching point to change their whole identity. Maybe it starts with a new haircut, or a new piercing, or dying your hair a different color. Sometimes LASIK can be the perfect place to start for becoming who you’ve always wanted to be but never had the courage to become!
- Wake up refreshed and able to see
Whether you wear glasses or contacts or switch between them, it can be jarring to wake up every morning and not be able to see. Everything is blurry, and for most people, this means you pick up your phone and you can’t even see it!
LASIK solves this problem. Can you imagine what it’s like to wake up every morning and see?
In fact, many patients that have had LASIK say that after having it, they wake up feeling more refreshed and ready to start their day! What better way to start your day than with crystal clear vision that doesn’t involve fumbling around for your glasses or feeling your way to the bathroom to put in your contacts?
- Save more money for the things you want
Have you ever thought about how much you’re spending every year on your glasses, contacts, and the various accessories that go along with them? If you’re like most Americans, you’re spending an average of $500 every year!
Now think about what you could do with that money instead of spending it on your glasses, contacts, and other vision needs. You could travel, or save up for a house, or start a business with your best friend.
The point is, getting LASIK can actually save you money over time! Most patients that get LASIK pay off their procedure after a few years.
As a permanent procedure, you could get decades out of your clear vision. Why not invest in yourself? After all, you should be your own biggest priority!
