5 Activities Made Better After LASIK!

Woman Reading a Book on a Couch

Are you tired of having to wear goggles when playing sports? Are you always worried that your contacts are going to fall out?

The solution to all these concerns and frustrations is getting LASIK eye surgery. Getting LASIK means most patients end up with 20/20 vision or better.

The majority of patients do not need glasses or contacts after they have LASIK. Once you have completely healed, your life will change for the better.

No more frustration because of your glasses or contacts getting in the way. You can take part in just about any activity you want without any worries! Keep reading to find out about 5 activities made better after LASIK!

1. Work/Reading

Think about what work would be like if your eyes did not get irritated from being dry from wearing contacts. You could more easily concentrate on your tasks.

No more dealing with your dry eyes thanks to contacts and the A/C blowing on you. Also, with LASIK, you do not have to worry about needing glasses or contacts to read. Instead, you can read anytime and anywhere, glasses-free!

2. Sports

If you’re an athlete, wearing glasses isn’t really an option. You can wear contact lenses but they can often be a bit unreliable. Who hasn’t worried that their contact may fall out while playing a sport?

If your contact does fall out, it’s a whole to do. You have to hope you’ll find the rogue contact lens and then also hope you have some solution on you.

After all, there’s no way you’re putting a dirty contact lens back in your eye! By this point, the game has already been stopped and your teammates are frustrated with you.

But if you get LASIK, you don’t have to deal with these issues anymore. No more glasses and no more inconvenient contact lenses that don’t stay in your eyes.

In most cases, you can go back to light exercising a week to two weeks after LASIK. You should avoid contact sports for about a month to be absolutely safe. But after that point, the possibilities are endless!

3. Traveling

Love to travel? What you probably don’t love about traveling is lugging around your spare glasses and accessories. It’s a crucial part of the packing process, especially if you’re traveling abroad.

There’s nothing worse than getting to your destination and realizing you didn’t bring your spare glasses. Or when you only brought one pair of contact lenses and have one contact rip on the second day.

These are the things that you think will never happen, but sometimes they do! Wouldn’t it be better if you didn’t have to deal with these potential problems instead?

Getting LASIK solves this for you. No more frantically packing and trying to bring enough contacts, solution, and spares. You can go on vacation and actually relax for once!

4. Using Makeup

Wearing glasses or contacts can make using and wearing makeup a challenge. Makeup and glasses don’t go together on the best of days. Why bother with it?

If you get LASIK, you can wear the makeup you want after recovering. You won’t have to try and compensate for glare coming off your glasses in photos anymore.

5. Football

Whether you are watching or playing football, glasses or contacts complicate things. It is not ideal to be watching football outside and have your glasses fog up.

You could take off your glasses but then you render yourself blind. It’s a lose-lose situation. If you’re playing football, there’s no way you could play with glasses on!

You could wear contacts, but they can be quite fickle and may irritate your eyes. Why not get LASIK instead?

You can watch any sporting event you want glasses-free after having LASIK. You can also take part in an endless amount of activities and never have to wear glasses again.

The first step to finding out if LASIK could be right for you is to have a LASIK consultation. Schedule yours at Omaha Eye & Laser Institute in Lincoln, NE today!
