Why Getting LASIK Makes Sense This Fall

Are you wondering if LASIK could be right for you? LASIK is a pretty incredible vision correction procedure, and there’s no reason not to get it if you qualify this fall!

After all, what’s better than enjoying the fall with the best vision of your life? If you’re thinking of getting LASIK, there’s no better time than the fall.

Having LASIK now at the beginning of the season means you’ll be able to enjoy all your favorite fall activities to the fullest. LASIK is permanent, so it will improve your vision for the rest of your life.

But to truly enjoy all the advantages and benefits of this procedure, getting it sooner than later is the ideal solution. The sooner you have it, then the sooner you’ll be able to appreciate having total visual freedom.

Getting LASIK surgery this fall will enable you to get the most out of the season and every fall to come. Keep reading to find out why getting LASIK makes the most sense this fall!

Enjoy the Cool Weather

Getting outside in the summer can be exhausting with the sweltering Texas heat, but fall is the perfect time to go on long walks and hikes. The weather is perfect! It’s not too cold, but not too hot.

But being outside for a whole day can be rough if you have contacts or glasses to worry about. On a windy day, your contacts can dry out and irritate your eyes.

Glasses aren’t much better, fogging up and making it harder to wear a light knitted hat or scarf around your face. You may not be as excited to get out and hike if you’re someone who relies on visual aids.

But after you have LASIK, those problems are in the past. You can get the most out of every moment you spend outside in nature.

Because LASIK recovery is fast, you also can get right outside pretty soon after you have surgery. Most patients can get back to their normal activities within a few days with minimal restrictions.

If you can handle a day or two of resting and downtime, you can look forward to the crisp, clear vision you’ll enjoy after LASIK! So go ahead and plan your perfect camping or day trip. Before you know it, you’ll be out and about testing your new vision!

Have Fun with the Whole Family

Fall activities are the best, whether you have kids. There’s apple picking, hayrides, pumpkin patches, and haunted houses to visit.

You’ll have fun whether you go with your friends, partner, or with your family. The best part is that after LASIK, you won’t have to worry about the little annoyances anymore.

Frustrations like having a nice hot cup of apple cider fog up your glasses and temporarily blind you will be something you can forget about for good. Having LASIK also helps you see better than you could even when you wore contacts or glasses.

Many LASIK patients say that colors look more vibrant after having the procedure. Imagine seeing all the changing leaves, apples, and pumpkins like never before. It’ll be like being in a movie! Have LASIK now and you can have your most idyllic fall ever.

Get Creative with Halloween

For many of us, fall means one thing: it’s the spookiest season! Halloween is the reason for the season and there’s no better way to celebrate than with a stunning costume.

Costumes can be tough if you have to work with glasses and irritating contacts can cut your evening short if you get any makeup too close to your eyes. With the boundaries you’re no longer held back by getting LASIK, you’ll have all the creative freedom to create the perfect costume.

Whether you’re going to a party, taking the kids trick-or-treating, or looking your best to give out candy, you’ll be beyond dressed to impress!

If you want to go all out on costumes and decorations, you also don’t need to feel guilty about the expense. LASIK is the ultimate investment in yourself.

If you feel nervous about the cost, it’s affordable thanks to zero-interest payment plans. With LASIK, you won’t need to spend money on glasses and contacts every year.

Each year after you have LASIK, you save money. After a few short years, the procedure pays for itself! This means it’s easier than ever to budget a little extra fun for yourself even right after having LASIK while still being financially sound.

Be Ready for Winter

If you have LASIK in the fall, you’ll be able to enjoy the season to the fullest. Your initial recovery is quick and you’ll have improved vision right away.

But you’ll reach your peak vision a few months after you’ve had LASIK. This is when your eyes are 100% fully healed.

That means you’ll also be able to get the most out of the winter, too. Sure, it may still be warm in San Antonio, but it definitely still has a colder bite in the air.

Since your eyes will be fully healed, you don’t have to worry about the dry air and cold irritating your eyes. Some people love the winter, some people hate it, but one thing is for sure: it’s a lot better after you have LASIK!

Do you like to get cozy inside with a cup of cocoa in front of the fireplace? You won’t have to worry about smoke irritating your contacts or foggy glasses.

If you’re a fan of skiing or snowboarding, you can focus on the slopes in nearby Colorado or New Mexico instead of how you’ll fit sunglasses or goggles over your glasses. You can even put all thoughts of contacts drying out from your mind, leaving you more energy to think about the cool tricks you can pull off!

Everything becomes a lot easier when you can see without any kind of boundaries standing in your way.

LASIK means visual freedom, meaning you’ll get more out of everything you do. This fall, you can test out your new vision and be ready for whatever the winter, spring, and summer have to offer year after year.
