Quick Recovery to Get Back to What You Love this Holiday Season

You won’t have to worry about a lengthy recovery after getting LASIK. LASIK itself is a quick procedure to undergo.

It’s painless, thanks to numbing eye drops, and only takes a few minutes per eye to complete. The recovery process after having LASIK is also not long.

Most patients only experience discomfort for a few days. During this time, you’ll experience improved vision, which will be clearer than you could have ever imagined.

You’ll need to take precautions during your LASIK recovery, like taking antibiotic and anti-inflammatory eye drops, not wearing eye makeup until your ophthalmologist says it’s safe, avoiding strenuous exercise, and being extra cautious about protecting your eyes from sunlight, dust, pollen, and other contaminants.

Your LASIK surgeon will give you specific instructions so you’ll know exactly how to keep your eyes safe and healthy while recovering and how long to follow these precautions. For most of this initial recovery period, your eyes will feel completely normal.

Most patients experience almost immediate visual improvement, but this can vary depending on the patient. Your vision will continue improving, even when you no longer have to follow any precautions.

It takes three to six months for your vision to reach its peak after LASIK and fully heal. During that time, you’ll notice that your eyesight will continue improving.

After your eyes heal, you’ll have achieved the final results of LASIK, and for most patients, this means 20/20 vision or better, with improved depth perception, contrast, and the ability to see like never before. Since the initial recovery from LASIK is so quick and easy, you’ll be able to enjoy the holidays to the fullest and won’t have to worry about spending your time convalescing in bed for weeks.

Because your vision will improve over the weeks and months following the procedure, getting LASIK now means you’ll have even better vision to enjoy New Year’s Eve to the fullest. Watching the ball drop has never been so much fun when you can see it in the most heightened clarity! 

Better Vision Than Ever

Most people have a vision correction procedure like LASIK to eliminate the need for glasses and contact lenses. But LASIK can give you more than independence from these visual aids.

Besides the obvious advantage of visual freedom, you can achieve better vision than you were able to with glasses and contact lenses. But how is this possible?

LASIK corrects your vision beyond your original glasses or contact lens prescription. It changes the shape of your cornea to correct your specific refractive errors.

Over 95% of LASIK patients end up with 20/20 vision or better! That means better depth perception, sharper vision, and even better color perception. The world will look clearer and more vibrant once you have LASIK.

Clearer vision goes a long way if you’re enjoying the holiday season. Whether you’re putting up lights to make your house the talk of the neighborhood, placing ornaments on the tree with your family, or getting ready for your holiday Christmas party, having better vision is never bad! Walk out of the house knowing you can see every detail, and everything looks fantastic.

See Holiday Lights Like They’re Meant to Be Seen

There’s nothing quite like the various decorations of the holidays, and the number one decoration everyone loves during the winter is lights! Lights on trees, houses, shops, and anywhere you can imagine look much more impressive after you have LASIK. You’ll have better vision and won’t have glasses that can get foggy or contact lenses that get dried out and make everything out of focus.

You’ll be able to appreciate the most iconic holiday sights like never before! Say so long to glare in holiday pictures because your glasses took center stage, and instead, make sure you’re the star this holiday season. A little extra self-confidence is just one of the best things that LASIK could give you this year.

Make Holiday Cooking Easier and More Fun!

Cooking and baking can be a chore, especially when glasses and contact lenses get in the way. Foggy glasses are frustrating and leave you unable to see when baking.

Is there anything worse than being temporarily unable to see when you open the oven or you’re cooking and lifting the lid of a simmering pot? You need to be able to see clearly if you’re cooking for the ones you love, and if you depend on visual aids like eyeglasses, you may find that they let you down when you need them most.

With other visual aids like contact lenses, you don’t have to worry about foggy lenses, but dry air may irritate your eyes. Your contacts may get too dry, making glasses necessary, or you may need a break to ensure you can see.

But what if you could make holiday cooking and baking easier? With a procedure like LASIK, you can enjoy seamless vision without visual aids to bother you.

You’ll have less to worry about, making cooking and baking during the holidays a lot more fun. You’ll also have more confidence to try new holiday recipes since you won’t be thinking about how to keep your vision in check.

Pick Out the Perfect Gifts

There’s no doubt that LASIK makes your vision better than you could have ever imagined. Not only will you be able to see the world more clearly, but you may also find you have a better eye for aesthetics.

With better depth and color perception, you’ll see things more accurately and pick out gifts for your friends and family that look good. Clothing and home decor make great gifts, but you might as well give them the gift receipt if you don’t have an eye for design!

Once you have LASIK, you’ll open up a whole new world of holiday shopping to get your loved ones the best.

Enjoy Your Time with Loved Ones

The holidays are about family, whether that means your actual family or your partner and close friends. You’ll enjoy your time with the people you care about the most this holiday season when you can see their faces in crisp clarity.

Better vision that won’t have you depending on glasses and contacts means you can hang out by the fire or outside with some hot cocoa without worrying about irritated contacts or foggy glasses. You’ll have more time and energy to make memories with those you love.
