With summer coming to a close, it’s time to start planning the end of your year. One of the most impactful choices you can make for your life is to say goodbye to glasses by investing in LASIK.
There’s never a bad time to consider LASIK, but autumn can be an especially perfect season to get it. Keep reading to see why fall may be the best season to get LASIK!
Begin Recovery Before the Holidays
Recovering from LASIK is not very complicated, but the first few weeks can interrupt your lifestyle. During this time, you’ll need to take it very easy.
This mellow recovery period may or may not be possible during the crazy holiday season. Full recovery from LASIK can take up to 6 months, so you could still be healing when the holidays come around.
If you get LASIK in the fall, however, the most challenging part of your recovery will be behind you when winter arrives. That way, you should be able to celebrate without limits!
Fall Walks are Better with LASIK
One of the most excellent parts of New York City is Central Park, and seeing it during the fall is fantastic. You could even plan a trip up north to engross yourself in the seasonal change of leaves.
Unfortunately, glasses can make those minivacations more complicated than they need to be. You have to worry about what happens if they break and vigilantly protect them from getting damaged.
And glasses can fog up frequently as the air temperature begins to decrease. With LASIK, you can have peace of mind knowing that your vision is always with you and can’t break!
Winter Causes Dry Eyes, But LASIK Makes Them Easier To Handle
LASIK treats refractive errors like nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism. It will not fix your dry eye and may even cause some temporary dry eye while you heal.
But LASIK can help with dry eye by allowing you to use eye drops whenever you want with ease. Even people who do not suffer from chronic dry eye can still experience symptoms from the cold, dry air.
Applying eye drops is a nuisance no matter what. But having to take out contacts and do it half-blind makes it even worse.
LASIK enhances your life in many small ways, and these improvements add up to a meaningful lifestyle improvement. Having uninterrupted access to eye drops is just one of the luxuries that LASIK can provide to you!
Heal Before Spring Comes
Most people don’t take a full six months to recover from LASIK, but some people do. Even if you take the entire six months, you are on track to fully enjoy your vision by spring by getting LASIK in the fall.
This means you can start your new year with fresh, clear eyesight. Then, you can create plans knowing you won’t have glasses or contacts weighing you down.
