Dr. Sandra Belmont encourages patients who struggle with blurred vision to explore laser vision correction surgery whenever they feel is best for them. This being said, there are certainly distinct benefits to undergoing the quick and painless procedure during the summer months. Here, Dr. Belmont explains why.
If you lead an active lifestyle, you know how frustrating dry contacts or unsteady glasses can be. Contacts and glasses also present potential dangers in the forms of injuries and infections due to bacteria, debris and sweat. With LASIK, you can leave all the bothersome contacts and scratched glasses behind. Not only can you enjoy playing your favorite sport, but your performance will improve.
In last month’s blog post, Dr. Belmont touched on the importance of packing extra eyeglasses and contacts when traveling. While important, traveling with corrective eyewear can be a hassle. Breaking or losing your glasses can put a damper on your vacation, while contacts require maintenance. Imagine traveling without worrying about backup contacts or glasses. You’ll have less to worry about and more time to enjoy the sights and sounds of your vacation.
Are you eager to watch the next summer blockbuster but less excited to squint your way through it? With LASIK, you’ll no longer have to worry about finding the “right” seat just so you can see the movie screen properly. LASIK is also great if you love 3D movies, since you’ll be able to wear 3D glasses more easily without needing your regular glasses.
Summer presents plenty of opportunities to socialize and travel. You’ll be surprised at how much time you save and less stressed you will feel when you don’t have to worry about finding your glasses or putting on or taking off contacts. Be ready to hit the road for your next barbecue or summer beach party at a moment’s notice. Additionally, if you feel self-conscious about how you look with glasses, LASIK is a great option. With clearer vision and a fresh face free of glasses, you’ll feel more confident when approaching others this summer.
The first step towards achieving clearer vision with LASIK is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Belmont. Contact Belmont Eye Center by calling (212) 486-2020 today.
