Are There Benefits of Getting LASIK Eye Surgery in the Winter?

LASIKIf you are considering LASIK eye surgery to have the perfect vision you’ve always wanted, there are many benefits to getting it during the winter. At Raleigh Eye Center, we are here to tell you why LASIK will be helpful to you during the colder months of this year.

When you undergo laser eye surgery in the winter, you can:

  • Get rid of foggy glasses. One of the main frustrations of wearing eyeglasses during the winter is that they fog up really easily. Whether you are outside playing hockey or shoveling snow in your driveway, condensation from the cold winter air can make it hard to see what you’re doing. Getting LASIK during the winter can easily fix this problem.
  • Wear sunglasses in the snow. When you have to wear eyeglasses to see clearly, it prohibits you from wearing sunglasses. During the winter, this can prevent you from protecting your eyes, due to the ultraviolet rays caused by the reflection off the snow. Wearing sunglasses allows you to protect yourself against snow blindness, whether you are driving or cross-country skiing.
  • Protect your eyes against dry winter air. Contacts on their own can easily dry out your eyes, which means they are no match for dry winter air. Solve this problem by getting LASIK this winter — you will no longer have to worry about itchy, dry eyes while you are outside snowboarding or building a snowman.
