Summer is just around the corner and you might already be gearing up for your annual getaway in the sun. That’s an exciting prospect but, if you’re already packing your suitcase, you might have noticed a bit of a problem.
People who wear glasses or contact lenses have to allow space in their luggage for all the equipment that goes with that. For the average summer holiday, glasses wearers will probably need to pack prescription glasses, plus a spare pair in case the first get lost or broken, prescription sunglasses, contact lenses, contact lens solution, non-prescription sunglasses for when they’re wearing contact lenses and, if you’re over 45, possibly prescription and non-prescription reading glasses too.
If you’re planning to swim or take part in water sports, that can pose another dilemma. Contact lenses can be washed out or, even worse, cause a serious eye infection due to bacteria in the water. Glasses are impractical for most water sports, but if you can’t see without them, not wearing glasses could be dangerous.
However, there is a way you can lighten the load and enjoy all activities this summer with help from Laser Eye Surgery Birmingham. Laser eye surgery removes the need for glasses and contact lenses, giving you improved vision and a lighter suitcase.
Our quick and painless LASIK and LASEK vision correction procedures have transformed thousands of people’s lives. Also, Optegra’s incredible new Zeiss Visumax femtosecond laser is the first in Birmingham to offer the innovative SMILE vision correction procedure.
For older patients, lens replacement surgery can be a more effective solution for optimum results, allowing you to enjoy your holiday without the burden of glasses or contact lenses.
It is recommended that you shouldn’t swim for four weeks following laser eye surgery, so now is the time to book your procedure and give your summer a brighter outlook.
