The overwhelming majority of patients who get LASIK are thrilled with the results. Clear, independent vision enriches life’s simplest pleasures and grandest moments. In this post, Vista Eye Specialists takes a deeper dive into exploring three things that are better after LASIK.

Starting Your Day

If you have dreamed about opening your eyes first thing in the morning and clearly seeing the faces of your loved ones, LASIK can make that a reality. After laser eye surgery, you will be able to see your surroundings from the moment you wake up, without wasting a minute trying to find your glasses or put in your contacts.


Traveling with corrective eyewear is a hassle. You must plan to pack supplies, cleaning solution and usually an extra pair of frames in your carry-on. And even if you are well-prepared, it is normal to worry about breaking your glasses or losing your contacts while away from the comforts of home. Wearing your contacts on a plane can be uncomfortable, as the recycled air can dry out your lenses. Camping trips or trips to remote locations can be stressful if you don’t have access to soap and water to properly clean your hands.

LASIK eliminates all of these concerns and allows you to focus on enjoying your travels. You can live in the moment and go on new adventures without spending a moment stressing about glasses or contacts.


You don’t have to be a professional athlete to know that the gym and glasses do not mix well. Even for the casual gym-goer, glasses are an enormous hinderance to working out or playing sports; they can steam up from sweat, bounce around the nose and fall off the face. Contacts are a little more convenient and tolerable, but they can dry out or get lost during vigorous exercise or while playing sports.

Exercise, sports and other physical activities like hiking and swimming are extremely enjoyable after LASIK. Clearer, sharper vision can help you work out harder and step up your game, whether you play professionally or simply enjoy the occasional tennis or soccer game.
