Enjoy Visual Freedom This Summer With LASIK/PRK in Spring

Refractive surgery in Ocean County, New Jersey can help you enjoy summertime adventures.

With summer approaching, you may be planning fun outdoor adventures and vacations. Whether you want to catch a sunset at the beach, take in a view after a mountain hike, or sightsee in another country, your vision is a critical component of your enjoyment of these experiences. Although prescription lenses can help you to overcome refractive errors so that you may see better, nothing beats being able to see clearly with your own naked eyes. Invision Eye Care offers LASIK/PRK to help improve your vision with little to no need for prescription lenses.

Ways Refractive Surgery Can Improve Your Summer Fun

  1. Traveling becomes easier. No one wants to devote precious luggage space to contact solution or to forget their prescription sunglasses in their hotel room. You can pack lighter and take in the sights with crisp vision.
  2. Swimming with fewer restrictions. It’s a freeing experience to not have to worry about losing your lenses in the ocean. Plus, you can finally open your eyes underwater in the pool.
  3. Participating in sports. Join your friends for softball in the park without the fear of your glasses breaking. You can also take a jog without having your glasses bounce around on your face.
  4. Reading a good book on the porch. Refractive surgery can help to clear up near vision in addition to distance vision, so that you can sit down with a book or magazine under the warm summer sun.

What Does LASIK/PRK Entail?

Refractive surgery is a safe and quick procedure that reshapes the curvature of the cornea to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and/or astigmatism. PRK (photorefractive keratectomy) is a bladeless procedure that uses an excimer laser to reshape the cornea without creating a corneal flap. You typically only need to take a couple days off work for this surgery, which allows you to save your vacation days for summer. Thereafter, you should no longer need to wear prescription lenses — glasses or contacts — in most situations.
