Life’s a Picnic without Contact Lenses and Glasses
Whatever the British weather decides to do, people all over the country will be heading for the attractions, theme parks, sports centres and beaches, in a bid to keep the children entertained.
Active days out make wonderful memories for all the family. But if you wear glasses or contact lenses, life’s no picnic when you’re trying to enjoy the great outdoors.
Having a rough-and-tumble game of rugby or hitting white water rapids with the children isn’t safe if you wear contact lenses. Most spectacle wearers will have experienced that sinking feeling when they’re trying to enjoy a fairground ride, rollercoaster or boat trip on choppy waters, only to see their expensive prescription glasses go flying off into the distance.
Add the all-too-common symptoms of hay fever that can severely irritate the eyes in spring and summer, and you have a recipe for a disastrous day out.
Why put up with it for another year? At Laser Eye Surgery Birmingham, we can transform your family adventures by ridding you of contact lenses and glasses altogether. Along with LASIK and LASEK laser eye surgery, we’re also among the first in Birmingham to offer the incredible new SMILE vision correction procedure.
SMILE, or Small Incision Lenticule Extraction, is a minimally invasive procedure that has corrected myopia and/or astigmatism in more than 1.5million eyes all over the world. We’re delighted to be offering this innovative treatment to patients in the West Midlands.
Older patients can also gain a new outlook on life with lens replacement surgery, which can offer excellent results. Better vision means better quality time with the grandchildren – so, come into the clinic for a chat and find out how your precious memories could become crystal clear in 2019.
