3 reasons to get laser eye surgery this summer

The first few things that come to mind when we think of summer are bank holiday weekends, beach trips, sunshine, and … prescription sunglasses sliding down your nose or office air conditioning that dries out your contact lenses? Well, we can’t guarantee great weather this summer (if only!) but we can give you a few reasons why you should consider laser eye surgery before you enjoy the summer sunshine.

With laser eye surgery you won’t have to worry on your holiday

We’ll be honest. Travelling with contact lenses or glasses can add another layer of headache to even the best-laid plans. You need to pack extra lenses or spare pair of glasses in case something happens to the first pair. Contact lens solution can spill in your bag or be over the plane’s liquid allowance. And that’s before you even get to your destination! Laser eye surgery helps you enjoy every second of your holiday so you can live it to the fullest and get the most of the season. Plus, you’ll know you’ll look your best (and who doesn’t want that?)

With laser eye surgery you'll be able to enjoy the outdoors

(and all the activities that come along with it)
Glasses and contacts can make adventurous pursuits difficult. Swimming with contacts can be hazardous, scratched lenses are a pain, and glasses bouncing on your face can be distracting – especially when you’re in the middle of a friendly competition. Keep your eye on the ball with clearer vision that doesn’t rely on spectacles or lenses so you can enjoy the outdoors to the best of your ability. Getting laser eye surgery means you can swim, dive, splash, cycle, hike and camp, all without depending on your glasses or contact lenses to see you through the next adventure.

With laser eye surgery you can enjoy the little things in life more clearly

There are many big reasons to get laser eye surgery, but there are lots of little ones too. Like going to watch a 3D movie, waking up every morning without immediately reaching for your glasses (and the resulting panic when they aren’t there), or spending the day outside without worrying about getting sand or dirt in your contact lenses. Laser eye surgery is a generally quick and easy procedure with little recovery time. That means that the sooner you do it, the sooner you can get back to enjoying your life - with better vision.
