Having bad eyesight can really put a damper on your athletic activities. Whether your favorite activity is swimming, soccer, or rock climbing, having to worry about your eyeglasses or contact lenses staying in place can be a distracting hassle. If you suffer from less-than-perfect eyesight and don’t want it to interfere with your active lifestyle anymore, you have options. In particular, LASIK eye surgery can correct your eyesight and let you return to your sport of choice. Here are just a few reasons why you should consider LASIK surgery:
You won’t have to worry about your eyeglasses falling off.
The unfortunate truth is that it’s extremely difficult to be active with eyeglasses. No matter what physical activity you love, it is hard to give it your all when you are trying to balance your eyeglasses on your face. In addition, wearing eyeglasses while you play sports puts you at risk for serious injury. This is because eyeglasses can inflict severe damage to your face and eye area if you fall or receive a blow to the face. If you undergo LASIK eye surgery, you will be able to participate in your favorite sport while seeing clearly without eyeglasses.
You will no longer be concerned about contact lenses becoming dislodged.
While contact lenses won’t fall off or injure your face like eyeglasses can, they can certainly become dislodged and cause trouble while you’re on the playing field. In addition to causing suddenly blurred vision, dislodged contacts can irritate the eyes.
You will have the best vision possible for your active lifestyle.
The benefits of getting LASIK eye surgery extend well beyond being freed from having to wear eyeglasses or contacts. LASIK treats your vision problem instead of its symptoms, which means that you can have perfect or nearly perfect vision after surgery. You may notice that your hitting is more accurate, your throwing is more precise, or your overall enjoyment of your favorite sport is heightened.
