Summer is almost upon us and we here at Linda Vision in Los Angeles can’t think of a better time for LASIK. A quick and painless procedure, LASIK changes the curvature of the cornea to restore clear vision. Downtime is minimal, meaning you can have the procedure done and enjoy all of the outdoor fun summer has to offer in clear detail and high definition. Here, Los Angeles LASIK surgeon Dr. Linda Vu shares five summer activities you can enjoy after LASIK.
Any doctor will tell you that swimming with contact lenses is a bad and potentially dangerous idea, as it can lead to bacterial contamination and a serious eye infection. LASIK makes swimming much more enjoyable and potentially safer. With LASIK, you can take a dip in the pool or ocean at a moment’s notice without the hassle of putting away your glasses or taking out your contacts.
Los Angeles is home to great hiking trails like Griffith Park and celebrity favorite Runyon Canyon. And what better way to enjoy the beautiful views these trails offer than with crisp and clear vision? With LASIK, you can take in the stunning views of the city’s skyline without squinting or peering through foggy glasses.
Whether you’re planning a weekend getaway or a trip around the world, LASIK can make the packing and overall travel experience easier and more enjoyable. After LASIK, you don’t have to worry about packing your glasses (which can easily break or get lost while you’re traveling) or contact lenses and cleaning solution for your next trip. LASIK gives you one less reason to stress and plenty more time to enjoy your summer trip.
If you’re looking to take a self-guided tour of Los Angeles this summer, biking is one of the best ways to do it. But if you wear glasses, riding a bicycle can be uncomfortable, not to mention dangerous. Having LASIK done can help you avoid a potentially serious injury — and make your bike riding experience much more enjoyable. Imagine feeling the wind in your hair as you ride all through Los Angeles, taking in the sights and sounds of the city!
Each year, thousands of individuals go to the emergency room due to eye-related injuries, many of which occur while playing contact sports. Wearing glasses while playing baseball, basketball and other sports greatly enhances your risk of an eye injury. With LASIK, you can move around freely without the fear of breaking your glasses and injuring yourself because of it. Being glasses-free also enhances your sports performance as you are no longer distracted by your glasses slipping or getting foggy and limiting your vision.
