When a new year begins, many people make firm resolutions to change something about their lives or habits. The health and wellness industry is estimated to be worth around £20 billion in the UK alone, much of it bolstered by a flurry of interest in January as people vow to get fit this year.
Around 80% of New Year’s resolutions will fail by February, but for some, giving up on the gym membership or sports club might not just be down to a lack of motivation. Whether you’re new to sport or are trying to return to a once-loved activity, problems with your vision can really stack the odds against you.
Wearing glasses or contact lenses can be a real hindrance when you’re trying to play a sport or build up a sweat – in some cases, such as contact sports, they can even be downright dangerous. Swimming while wearing contact lenses can lead to dry eyes or infections, but how can you stay in your lane if you can’t see where you’re going?
At Laser Eye Surgery Birmingham, we offer a range of solutions to help you get ahead in your fitness journey. Our quick, painless LASIK and LASEK laser vision correction procedures have transformed thousands of lives, while the innovative new SMILE technique is particularly suitable for sports people. With SMILE, if you take a knock during your match or activity, your eye is unlikely to be as affected as an untreated eye.
For the over-50s, we provide an alternative and just as effective treatment called lens replacement surgery, or refractive lens exchange.
So, whether you want to return to sports or take out your very first gym membership, you can experience new confidence with our gold-standard laser eye surgery treatments.
