With the Christmas decorations down and the New Year in full swing, it’s time to shift the focus from revelries to resolutions. It may not be immediately intuitive, but laser eye surgery can play a significant role in helping you achieve your New Year’s resolution.
Though not mutually exclusive objectives, getting fit and losing weight are two of the most popular New Year’s resolutions, an unsurprising phenomenon given the Christmas season of feasting that immediately precedes the New Year. Laser eye surgery can help you achieve these objectives by making exercise more convenient and enjoyable. Many sports, including swimming, are extremely difficult with glasses or contact lenses, while others simply highlight the inconvenience of glasses, such as squash and mountain biking. Runners will be familiar with the frustrating phenomenon of fogging glasses that accompany rising body temperatures mid-way through a jog.
Not having to worry about the inconvenience of glasses or contact lenses lets you keep your focus on fitness and use whatever form of physical activity you choose to get fit and burn calories.
Getting fit and losing weight are as much about aesthetics as they are about health, so laser eye surgery can also provide that finishing touch on the new look that you’re working towards.
Exercise your way into that little black dress and ditch your glasses at the same time, for a look that packs an even bigger punch.
By making an active lifestyle more accessible, laser eye surgery can also contribute indirectly to helping you quit smoking or ease up on drinking, habits which many try to break as their big resolution. Trade time at the pub for an afternoon hill walking, appreciating the clarity of your view from the summit as never before, and use your new found interest in cardiovascular activity as an impetus to ease up on the cigarettes, so you can scale the trails without experiencing shortness of breath.
Many people also resolve to learn or try something new in the New Year. Laser eye surgery can really expand the breadth of activities that you can take on, so the only things holding you back are your own fears and inhibitions.
Spending more time with friends and family members tops many a resolution list, and one of the best ways to spend a concentrated amount of quality time with your loved ones is on a holiday. Whether you’re headed to the slopes or prefer to lounge on the beach, laser eye surgery can relieve you of the inconvenience of using glasses with goggles, or alternating between spectacles and shades as you devour the latest by Danielle Steel and reapply your SPF 45. Without glasses and contacts to worry about on holiday, you can really focus on enjoying the company that you’re surrounded with.
Even if spending more time with friends and family simply means more memorable nights out, laser eye surgery means no more worrying about over-wearing your contacts, or being the only one on the dance floor in spectacles.
Whatever your resolution may be, look to laser eye surgery as a means of giving yourself that extra edge. It is more that just about improving your vision, it’s about improving your quality of life – however you’ve resolved to do so.
