10 hobbies that LASIK surgery could benefit

Let’s talk about the hobbies that LASIK laser eye surgery would improve and how this could benefit your life.

There are tons of activities and hobbies you can enjoy more if you have 20/20 vision. Think about it. Even if you’re used to wearing glasses while playing sports, for example, you can’t do anything when your lenses fog up or get wet. Plus, no matter how easy eyeglasses are to put on and take off, they’ll never be as comfortable or as convenient as having naturally great vision. The same applies to contacts, which can be a pain to clean and handle.

But what other activities would be greatly enhanced if you didn’t have to worry about glasses and contacts? Let’s take a look…

1. Reading

Wouldn’t you like every word you read to be crystal-clear without first having to fumble around for your reading glasses? LASIK laser eye surgery can make that a reality. Even after 40 years of age, if you’re struggling to read small print with your glasses or contacts, LASIK can actually rewind the clock on your eyes, restoring your reading vision.

2. Gaming

Do you enjoy gaming but find that headaches and eye fatigue impede your performance? Not to worry. After a quick laser eye surgery procedure, not only can you play MMOs or FPS games longer, but you’ll also improve your reaction times. It’s time to level up!

3. Sewing

Whether you’re a beginner or a bonafide sewing expert, you’ll know that even the smallest project can take hours or even months to complete. Improving your eyesight with LASIK can help you finish projects faster and to a higher quality. After all, threading your sewing machine or a needle is tough enough without the burden of glasses.

4. Hunting

Planning your next hunt? If you wear glasses, it can be difficult to work out whether progressive lenses are spoiling your aim or if it’s your rifle scope that needs changing. With LASIK your vision is sure to be on target.

5. Putting on makeup

Trying to apply eye makeup with poor vision is an impossible task. Even if you make it that far, be careful not to smudge it with your glasses or aggravate your eyes with your contacts, or it’ll stream straight off.

After LASIK surgery, you can easily apply eyeshadow, eyeliner or mascara, and you’ll be good to go.

6. Watching Movies

Wearing 3D glasses on top of your regular frames doesn’t just look ridiculous, it’s mighty uncomfortable, too.

If you get laser eye surgery, enjoying all the 3D and 2D movies you’d like to watch won’t be a problem.

7. Styling yourself

Is fashion your passion? If the answer is yes, then you’ve likely experienced a scenario where your glasses clash with your outfit. If you tend to switch to contacts for special occasions, it can be embarrassing when someone says, “Wow, you look so nice! Have you done something different with your hair?” Nope. I’m just not wearing my glasses.

LASIK eye surgery allows you to look the way you were born to look. Every. Single. Day.

8. Cooking

There’s nothing worse when you’re trying to cook up a storm in the kitchen, but your glasses steam up. Or even worse, you forget to wash your hands after chopping the chillies, and you’ve just touched your eye, removing your contacts.

Improving your eyesight with LASIK or another vision correction procedure can help take care of that.

9. Outdoor pursuits

Are you trying to pursue a more active lifestyle? There’s no need to join a professional sports club when you can go jogging, hiking, or camping this summer. But, of course, these activities are a lot more fun when you don’t have to consider your glasses or contacts first. As a bonus, your choice of sunglasses and protective eye gear has just exponentially increased.

10. Dancing

Unfortunately, there are no such things as sweat proof glasses. If your glasses fog, bounce off or slip down your nose when you’re trying to impress on the dance floor, you know you’ve got a problem.

After LASIK, you’ll be able to bust all your best moves without interruption.
