If you can’t see the ball, you’re going to have a hard time hitting, catching, or kicking it. Clear vision is key to your athletic performance regardless of the sport you play.
Some athletes have chosen eyewear or contacts, but those are temporary solutions that often come with additional complications. Compared to LASIK, glasses and contacts don’t offer the same vision benefits or convenience. Explore all the ways LASIK can unlock your best performance.
Glasses Hinder Athletic Performance
For regular activities, glasses offer a practical solution to vision problems. But with all the jumping, sprinting, and quick movements involved in sports—it’s easy for glasses to fog up or be knocked off. And if those frames break, you’re on the hook for another pair. Why keep wasting money on new pairs and prescriptions when you could invest in your eyesight.
You may be thinking, “Why not just go with contacts?” Like glasses, contact lenses are often knocked out of place during vigorous activity. Instead of frantically searching for them on a dirty floor or field, you could eliminate your need for contacts or glasses with a single LASIK procedure.
Athletic Benefits of Getting LASIK
If you wear glasses when you play sports, you run the risk of them breaking. For contact lens wearers, you risk possible infections and losing them during a game or practice. LASIK reduces both of these risks.
Sometimes your glasses can cause distortions or changes in magnification, leading to mistakes. Correct your vision with LASIK and improve your depth perception and more.
Athletes with glasses know how foggy they can get during outdoor winter sports. Even if you’re not outside or wearing glasses, infections from contact lens use are a constant threat, especially in water sports. LASIK is your no-fog solution that helps reduce your risk of infection.
As an athlete, your best ability is availability. LASIK is a quick procedure with a fast recovery time, helping you get back out there right away—now with clear vision.
