Travelling Freedom After Laser Eye Surgery

Whether you like to spend your holidays on the beach or prefer active and exciting trips, everyone loves to take a break!

However, if you need contact lenses or wear glasses, then you might be familiar with the hassle of remembering to pack items such as solution and new contacts into your already bulging toiletry bag. Then there’s the issue of glasses getting scratched in the sand – or worse, lost! As anyone in this situation knows, there are also a number of other things to consider before travelling.

“My contact lenses took the fun away from my holiday”

Patients often tell us how, prior to Laser Eye Surgery, they used to suffer from dry eyes during long flights or while travelling on air-conditioned buses. On top of this, many of their favourite holiday activities – going to the beach, swimming in the sea, sailing, surfing, skiing, snorkelling or hiking – had become connected with worries about their glasses or contact lenses.

Patients sometimes tell us how they used to suffer from red and irritated eyes after swimming in salty sea water, or a chlorine-filled pool. Sun-screen has a habit of coming into contact with sensitive eyes too, and clouding contact lenses with a greasy film. For those people that cannot wear contact lenses, it can be difficult and inconvenient to take part in sports such as skiing, diving or snorkelling, due to the requirement of wearing goggles.

When all you really want to do is relax and have a great time, the last thing you need is constant stress with your specs or contacts.


Laser Eye Surgery Can Help Make Future Holidays Stress Free!

There are a large number of reasons why our patients choose to have Laser Eye Surgery at London Vision Clinic. Something that is frequently mentioned is the desire to be able to enjoy travelling without the stress associated with glasses and contacts.
