If you are dealing with vision problems like nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism, then consider laser eye surgery and make the most of summer before it ends.
Here are 10 great reasons why this summer is the perfect season to get laser eye surgery:

2. Beach Days Just Got Better

Going to the beach is a staple of New Zealand summers. However, wearing glasses and contact lenses can often get in the way and can put a damper on your summer fun at the beach. Swimming with contact lenses is not recommended, and at the beach it's all too easy to break or lose your glasses or get sand in your contact lenses. However, after laser eye surgery, you can be ready for a swim at a moment’s notice and you can embrace all the fun a beach has to offer with no worries.

 

3. You Can Participate in Sports Without Any Visual Adaptations

Whether you play with a competitive mindset or simply for casual fun, there is one universal truth when it comes to sport — your athletic performance won’t be optimum unless you have good sight. Glasses bouncing around on your face, sliding down the bridge of your nose when you sweat or the constant worry of breaking your glasses, can cause distractions during the game. However, being glasses-free after laser eye surgery will enable you to play to the best of your ability and keep your eye on the ball (pun intended).

 

4. Enjoy the Great Outdoors

Without a dependence on glasses or contact lenses anymore, you can take a hike, go camping and mountain biking while enjoying the sights of the great outdoors with clear, crisp vision. Furthermore, after laser eye surgery, you can splash, swim, canoe, dive, and ski with complete freedom from glasses and contact lenses!

5. Stay Stylish with Your Favorite Sunglasses

With laser vision correction, you can reduce your spending on expensive prescription sunglasses and rock whatever shades fit your style and taste! Protecting your eyes from the sun is crucial, but shouldn't be limiting. Laser vision correction will enable you to embrace summer fashion and proper sun protection without breaking the bank!

6. Travel Stress-Free

Travelling with contacts and glasses can be a burden. When you wear glasses, you always carry the glasses on your face and their case inside your bag. When you wear contacts, you carry all of that along with the cleaning solution and an extra pair of contacts in case of emergencies.

After laser eye surgery, you don’t need to carry any of these items mentioned above. As we all know summer in New Zealand is an excellent time to travel and explore, but often packing and making sure you have all the necessities for your eyes can be daunting. To make travelling easier, laser eye surgery can remove the need for glasses and contacts and all the accessories that come with them, so that you can enjoy your holidays and summertime adventures with a healthy set of eyes - and nothing else!

 

7. Reduce Summer Allergies

One of the great benefits of having laser eye surgery is that it can reduce allergy symptoms. Having to endure allergies is bad enough, especially if you continually rub your eyes with contact lenses. Laser vision correction can alleviate allergy and chronic headache symptoms and make summer outdoors activities more enjoyable. 

 

8. Travel More Comfortably

If you are planning an overseas getaway this summer, it might be a good idea to get your laser eye surgery done before your trip to avoid getting red, irritated eyes from the dry aeroplane air when wearing contact lenses.

9. Busy Summer Social Calendar

Summer in New Zealand is usually a very busy time of year, full of Christmas celebrations, weddings and outdoor gatherings with friends and family. If you have any upcoming social events, it’s only natural to want to look your best and feel good about all the photo opportunities that will likely arise. Getting laser eye surgery can help boost your self-confidence and enjoy any social gathering with clear eyesight.

10. See and Feel Better

Imagine going to bed without having to take out your contacts or waking up in the morning without fumbling for your glasses. Laser eye surgery can provide you with the freedom to no longer depend on glasses or contacts to see clearly and enjoy all the activities that summer has to offer. Many of our patients report not only improved vision after laser eye surgery but also higher self-esteem, confidence and overall improved quality of life.
