Having Great Vision for Life’s Memorable Milestones
4 Reasons Getting Married Is a Milestone for Considering LASIK
One of the biggest milestones in anyone’s life is finding that person you want to build a life with and getting married. Surrounded by family and friends, every couple not only wants to look and feel their best as they celebrate their wedding day; but see every moment clearly. This can be a challenge for those who rely on glasses and contacts to see well, so here are 4 reasons your upcoming nuptials may be a good time to consider laser vision correction.
- Many couples make self-improvement a priority in their wedding planning. For those with vision problems, it is a time when they also can look at their options for vision correction. Choosing a laser vision correction procedure, such as LASIK, reduces or eliminates the need for glasses and contacts resulting in great vision that has obvious benefits for the start of this new stage of life.
- With LASIK, you can cry through your vows without worrying about your contacts moving, or your glasses fogging up. You’ll feel more confident taking your wedding photos. You can laugh at your best friend’s toast and dance the night away.
- And that honeymoon will be much more enjoyable when you can swim, snorkel and scuba dive without the hassle of contact lenses or glasses.
- Your new life together may include starting a family – another of life’s major milestones. Parenting is one of life’s greatest blessings and one that you will want to enjoy to the fullest, but raising children can leave little time for anything else, and wearing corrective lenses just adds to your day. With small children, glasses can easily be scratched, lost or broken, or you walk around with tiny smudged fingerprints on them all day. Exhausted parents are prone to leaving contacts in for longer than prescribed. They also may not be as diligent about the care and cleaning of contacts, neglect can lead to irritated and even infected eyes.
Fortunately, there are alternatives to your vision correction that can simplify your daily routine and make starting your life together much more enjoyable for those who are good candidates, planning for LASIK vision correction surgery before your big day not only ensures that you’ll experience every beautiful moment of your wedding in clarity and comfort, but having great vision at the ready for a lifetime of building memories together.
