Top Reasons to Have LASIK This Winter

LASIK & Cataract Surgeons serving Gurnee, River Forest & Chicago


Winter is almost here, and if you've been thinking about LASIK surgery, now is the perfect time to have it. With LASIK surgery, you can enjoy the winter season without the everyday LASIK vision correction surgeon in Chicagoannoyances of glasses or contacts.

Here are some of the top reasons why winter is a great time to have LASIK vision correction.

No More Fogged-Up Glasses

When temperatures outside drop, the struggle with condensation on your glasses begins. Fogged-up glasses can be a huge pain when walking around outside or going in and out of buildings. In addition, everyone who has worn glasses knows the pain of going outside in the rain or snow. Constantly wiping your glasses so you can see can get old pretty fast, but LASIK can help you never face this problem again.

Avoid Snow Blindness

Many people don't bother to switch their glasses for sunglasses when going outside since it can be a bit of a hassle. However, when it's sunny out and there's snow on the ground, it can irritate or even damage your eyes if you don't protect them. The bright white reflecting into your eyes can cause snow blindness if you go long enough without sunglasses. LASIK helps to eliminate the hassle of constantly changing glasses when going inside and outside.

Help Prevent Dry Eyes

If you wear contacts, you may have noticed that your eyes get very dry during the winter. Contacts can exacerbate dry eyes caused by a lack of humidity in the air, and can cause symptoms such as irritation, itchiness, and redness. LASIK can help significantly to manage dry eye problems in the winter through eliminating your need for contacts.

Enjoy Your Ski Trips More

It's not only skiing - LASIK can help you enjoy a range of outdoor sports without having to worry about special considerations to accommodate your glasses. No need for bulky ski goggles that fit over your glasses, and you'll be able to actually see while swimming. If you visit the ocean, no need to worry about losing your glasses to a rogue wave.
