Correct your vision to save the planet & money

Correct your natural vision to save the planet and money with vision correction surgery. You’ll be significantly reducing your contribution to plastic waste and you’ll be giving a more sustainable future to the next generation. In our quest for a more sustainable future, we often focus on big changes like renewable energy sources and electric cars. However, sometimes significant impact comes from small, everyday choices. One choice that can make a substantial difference is opting for vision correction surgery to reduce plastic waste from glasses and contact lenses. Over 400 million contact lenses are thrown away by the 4 million contact lens wearers every year, and 100 000 tons of plastic waste is generated every year from old glasses. This has generated over 16 000 million tons of waste which is polluting our landfills and oceans which takes about 500 years to break down.

Contact lenses also add to microplastic contamination. Microplastics are plastic particles less than 5 mm in size and are harmful to humans, fish and animals because contaminants, such as pesticides or bacteria, adhere to microplastics which have adverse effects when ingested.

Contact lenses can be safely recycled, but most people don’t bother, and instead they usually flush them down the loo where they find their way into our rivers and oceans. Or they are thrown in the bin so they end up in landfill.

Here are 3 other reasons to have natural vision:

  1. Lens and laser vision correction is safer than wearing contact lenses. There’s less risk of a severe infection & scarring
  2. Vision correction costs less than glasses & contact lenses and so saves you money
  3. The most obvious one of all, it’s just less hassle waking up and being able to see for sports and all the other activities you enjoy
