5 Reasons to Consider Custom LASIK this Summer


If you’ve ever dreamed about being able to see without contact lenses or glasses, chances are you’ve heard of LASIK. LASIK is a vision correction procedure that can provide you with total visual freedom.

It also has impressive success rates, with over 95% of patients achieving 20/20 vision or better, meaning it’s worth the hype! Now is also the perfect time to get LASIK and enjoy the summer like never before.

Keep reading to learn about 5 reasons to consider custom LASIK this summer and experience the best vision of your life!

What is Custom LASIK?

Custom LASIK, or iLASIK, is a more advanced surgical procedure than traditional LASIK. iLASIK uses iDESIGN technology to create a detailed 3D map of your eye.

The 3D map of your eye is used to program the laser that corrects your vision. This allows our LASIK surgeons to accurately assess and correct your exact refractive error beyond your original glasses or contact lenses prescription.

It’s not an accident that most patients who have custom LASIK procedures achieve 20/20 vision or better. They also notice improved depth perception, brighter and more vibrant colors, and crisper definition of smaller details.

iLASIK is a completely bladeless procedure. Initially, LASIK used blades to create a flap in the cornea.

Custom LASIK takes the LASIK procedure to the next level because, in addition to using an excimer laser and femtosecond laser, it also uses Wavefront technology to eliminate as much potential for human error as possible.

Wavefront technology in custom LASIK increases the accuracy and precision of iLASIK and ensures patients can achieve the most optimal visual results. These advances in LASIK technology mean you can feel confident knowing you’ll get precision when you have LASIK at See Clearly Vision.

Precision means better healing and better results. Modern LASIK procedures already have high patient satisfaction levels, but custom LASIK has even higher levels. Now is the time to finally get the vision correction procedure you’ve dreamed of.

You should do it now because the technology is more advanced than ever, and this time of year is perfect for testing how amazing your improved vision is. Here are just a few of the reasons you should consider getting custom LASIK this summer:

1.   Enjoy Being Outside

The weather is perfect in the summer for all kinds of outdoor activities, from cookouts to evening walks to outdoor sports. But being outside when it’s hot is a pain if you wear contact lenses or glasses.

Sweat and glasses can be a disastrous combination, especially if the sweat gets into your eyes and makes them sting. The same is true if you wear contact lenses outdoors on a hot day.

Sweat may cause your contacts to become irritated. Instead of having a fun day, you’ll have less-than-optimal vision because your contact lenses aren’t where they should be in your eyes.

But after having custom LASIK, you can be a lot more comfortable. You won’t have to worry about visual aids. You’ll have sharp, clear vision, whether at a barbecue, sailing with friends, or tossing a ball with your dog in the backyard.

Custom LASIK also has a quick recovery, meaning you’ll be able to get out and enjoy your summer without worrying about spending time waiting for your eyes to heal. Because custom LASIK is an outpatient procedure, you’ll be back to what you love and doing it with better vision, often as soon as the day after your procedure.

2.   Cool Off at the Pool or Beach

Custom LASIK makes it easier to tolerate the heat and cool off when needed. Swimming, whether in a pool or at the beach, is always more challenging when wearing contact lenses or glasses.

Glasses can easily get lost or broken when you need to find somewhere to put them while you’re out and about. If you wear contacts, saltwater and chlorinated water will likely irritate your eyes, meaning you may experience burning or other extremely uncomfortable symptoms if you try swimming with your contacts in.

After having custom LASIK, you’ll be free from visual aids. The best part, though, is you’ll have crystal clear vision on land and beyond.

Because LASIK procedures may correct your vision beyond your original prescription, you may see better than you could with glasses or contacts. Imagine a world that’s clearer than ever when you step off the diving board and splash into the pool to cool off. Say goodbye to blurry vision, and hello to a summer of clarity!

3.   Go to Festivals

Summer is also festival season! Festival goers rejoice and get ready to experience your favorite festivals like never before after you have LASIK surgery.

While music festivals can be a lot of fun, spending a few days camping out can be rough when you rely on contact lenses and glasses, especially when staying up late. But after custom LASIK, you don’t have to worry about your eyes getting too dry from contacts or accidentally breaking your glasses. Instead, you only need to focus on having a great time!

With the fantastic sight vision correction procedures give you, you’ll be able to appreciate the atmosphere and the music. Seeing everything clearly enhances every experience and will let you soak up every second!

4.   See Big Summer Blockbusters

Want to cool down from the outdoors? Why not see a movie?

Whatever big release you’ve been waiting for will be much more exciting after having custom LASIK. Why wouldn’t you want to see a new movie in high definition?

If big blockbuster movies aren’t your thing, you can enjoy watching movies at old-fashioned drive-ins or public outdoor movie screenings. Better vision from LASIK procedures means you’ll be able to see clearly even when looking through your windshield!

5.   Be Ready for Fall

Custom LASIK will help you get more out of the summer and prepare you for the fall. Most patients experience almost instant visual improvements when they have custom LASIK.

However, you won’t see the peak results from custom LASIK for 3-6 months after the procedure. In that time, your vision will continue to improve. By the fall, you’re likely to have fully improved vision!

Having visual freedom and incredible vision during the fall means you’ll be ready for anything, whether returning to college or facing hay fever and allergy season. No more glasses and contact lenses mean more convenience and milder allergy symptoms since dust, dander, or pollen won’t get stuck under your contact lenses and the potential of getting these allergens in your eyes.

When you have custom LASIK, you’ll prepare for a better summer, fall, winter, and spring, year after year. With permanently corrected vision from custom LASIK, you can look forward to many years of visual freedom without glasses and contact lenses!
