It is finally spring and the weather is starting to warm up, which means you are probably looking forward to ball games, gardening, and other outdoor activities. Spring signals a new beginning for many people and we happen to think it is the perfect time to get LASIK eye surgery.

LASIK has improved the lives of millions of people by helping them ditch their contacts and glasses. Here are four reasons why we think spring is the perfect time to get LASIK surgery:

1. Relief from allergies

Spring is one of the most beautiful seasons but for people who suffer from allergies, it can be one of the most difficult as well. It’s hard to enjoy the nice weather when you are busy sneezing or wiping your red, itchy eyes. And unfortunately, over-the-counter medications just don’t work for everyone.

Did you know LASIK surgery can actually improve your allergy symptoms? This is because contact lenses often exacerbate your allergy symptoms. Many LASIK patients have seen their allergy symptoms improve after having the surgery.

2. Enjoy your favorite outdoor activities

Let’s face it when it comes to playing your favorite sports, contacts and glasses really only get in the way. Nobody likes to worry about their glasses getting broken when they are enjoying a game of soccer with their friends. And dealing with dry, irritated eyes from contacts can be a nuisance as well.

And if you enjoy camping, fishing, or gardening, LASIK will allow you to see clearly so you can fully enjoy all the beauty nature has to offer.

3. Travel with ease

Many people enjoy traveling in the springtime but there is nothing more annoying than traveling with contact or glasses. You worked hard for that vacation so you deserve to fully enjoy it! Getting LASIK surgery will allow you to play with your children, scuba dive, go swimming, and enjoy all your favorite activities with ease. Plus, you won’t have to worry about forgetting your contact case or accidentally leaving your glasses in your hotel room.

4. Summer is just around the corner

Summer is just around the corner which means barbecues, swimming, and days spent at the lake. By scheduling your LASIK surgery in the spring, your eyes will be ready to enjoy all that summer has to offer!
