As all parents know, life changes when you have children. Glasses or contacts may have been fine in the old days. But now you value anything that simplifies your routine and gives you more time to focus on what matters (your kids). With LASIK, you’ll be better prepared, both for the great times and for emergencies. Here are four ways that LASIK helps make life easier for parents!
New parents suddenly become aware of just how much time they spend dealing with glasses and contacts.
shopping for glasses
stocking up on solutions
hunting for glasses
switching between pairs of glasses
cleaning dirty lenses
And then there’s hygiene. When you’re a busy parent, keeping your hands clean is suddenly a lot harder than it used to be. You may find yourself struggling to manage your lenses and contact lens case without properly washing your hands. And once the kids are asleep at the end of the day, you probably don’t want to be spending that precious “me time” dealing with your contacts.
Imagine how secure you’d feel knowing that you could see well for any emergency, day or night. With LASIK, you don’t have to worry about hunting for your glasses. You’ll be instantly ready to locate your children and bring them to safety.
Watching over our kids is an essential task of parenting. Imagine being able to easily monitor your child while they are swimming on a sunny day when there’s lots of glare. Or being able to spot them while they are playing on the playground at any moment.
After LASIK, you’ll be more confident about your ability to transport your kids safely. It will also be easier for you to keep an eye on other drivers and anticipate dangerous situations in traffic.
With good vision, you can read the fine print on the medicine bottle, even when it’s 3 AM and your child’s bedroom is dark. In every situation, you’ll be ready to do what needs to be done without the added step of hunting for your glasses.
3. Saving Money
Now that you have kids, those glasses and contacts are likely to cost you a lot more. Toddlers love to grab eyeglasses, and parents spend a lot on replacement frames and contact lenses. Curious fingers can tip contacts out of their case. Older kids love to play and roughhouse, which may mean accidentally knocking your glasses across the room. With no more glasses, contacts, or solutions to pay for, you’ll save thousands of rupees over time. That’s money that can go toward family outings or into a university fund.
Good vision means enjoying spontaneous fun with your child. You’ll be able to grab a book and read aloud to them or join in a painting project, without stopping to hunt for your glasses. Plus you can swoop in for a cuddle at any moment without worrying about your glasses getting in the way.
When your child is playing sports, you’ll be able to cheer them on without worrying about sand, dirt, or allergies irritating your eyes.
