5 of the Most Exciting Things About Choosing LASIK in Honolulu

LASIK can be a life-changing experience. Permanent laser vision correction can significantly reduce your dependency on glasses and contact lenses. 

As one of the most popular elective surgeries in the world, LASIK is a proven effective, minimally-invasive solution for refractive errors. If you’re nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism, chances are good that LASIK can fully correct your vision.

LASIK can allow you to see the world with your own two eyes. No matter where you live, LASIK can change your life for the better. 

If you call Honolulu home, your life after LASIK surgery can be even better, giving you a new appreciation for your beautiful home. Keep reading to learn five of the most exciting things about choosing LASIK in Honolulu!

Seeing All the Sights With Fresh Eyes

LASIK allows you to experience life with better vision. Reduced dependency on glasses and contact lenses means less foggy or uncomfortable lenses.

After LASIK, all your surroundings will appear sharper. Most people who have had LASIK even report that colors look brighter and more vivid after the procedure.

When you live in one of the most beautiful places in the world, it’s not hard to see how excellent vision can make your whole life even better. You may think you’ve seen everything your home has to offer, but with the crisp vision that LASIK can give you, everything you thought you knew will look better and brighter!

Surfing at Halona Cove

Whether an old pro or a beginner, Waikiki Beach in Halona Cove is a great place to surf or even to relax by the water. Whatever you like to do at the beach, having LASIK makes your experiences so much easier. 

Glasses and swimming or surfing do not mix well. Neither do contact lenses and water, especially saltwater. 

If you have to wear contacts or glasses, it adds an unnecessarily difficult element to surfing. Maybe you’ve never even learned how to surf because you can’t stand dealing with your glasses or contact lenses.

After you have LASIK, you’ll be able to surf with ease. And if you’re just learning, you won’t have to worry about losing your glasses after each fall. 

Recovery from LASIK is also fairly quick. However, you will need to abstain from swimming while your eyes heal.

Once your LASIK surgeon gives you the go-ahead, you will be able to get back to the waves as soon as possible!

Waking Up Early for the Farmer’s Market

Getting up early is often difficult for many people, and the chore of inserting contact lenses can make it even more challenging to wake up early. Imagine if you never had to put contacts in or even fumble to find your glasses when you wake up.

In this case, you might have the motivation to get up early and spend the morning at the farmer’s market! The Kaka’ako Farmers market is open from eight to noon. 

If you get up bright and early, you can get to all the best stands for fresh produce and homemade treats before all the best stuff sells out. Sure, local goods can be a bit more pricey than what you’ll find at the grocery store, but it’s also better quality. 

Not only that, but it’s a great idea to support small and local businesses when you can! And you certainly can after you get LASIK, because you’ll actually be saving money in the long run.

LASIK is an investment; it saves you money over time because you don’t have to buy glasses or contact lenses. Most people who wear contacts and glasses spend a few hundred dollars yearly on new glasses and contact lenses.

You will be able to greatly reduce or possibly eliminate these expenses after you get LASIK. Eventually, the surgery pays for itself.

With your savings, you can feel financially and socially responsible for supporting vendors at the farmer’s market along with other small businesses!

Spending a Night Out on First Friday in Chinatown 

Staying out late can be tricky when you wear contact lenses. When you wear them all day long, your eyes can often start to feel dry at the end of the day. 

With LASIK, you don’t have to change into glasses while out on the town with irritated eyes. Instead, you can go out and stay up as late as you want without ever having to worry about being able to see.

On First Fridays in Chinatown, all the best spots are open late. There are also tons of local vendors selling art and numerous exhibitions to look through. 

Spend every First Friday in Chinatown with the ease and confidence of total visual freedom!

Having Excellent Vision For Years to Come

LASIK is a permanent vision correction procedure meaning it doesn’t wear off. However, LASIK won’t prevent vision changes due to other eye conditions.

In order to have LASIK, your prescription has to be stable. Due to this requirement, the amount that your vision changes after the LASIK procedure will be minimal. 

You’ll have fantastic vision for years to come, thanks to LASIK. With over 95% patient satisfaction, chances are that you’ll love your new vision and improved life in Honolulu!
