Spring and fall in Omaha offer up wonderfully mild weather for a number of activities. For individuals considering LASIK, however, spring is an especially ideal time for healing.
Why? Because springtime LASIK means enjoying crisp, clear vision for three beautiful seasons (spring, summer and fall) of carefree adventures before a return to the often brutal Nebraska winters.
Here are five more reasons to make this spring your time for LASIK.
1. Look and feel cool over spring and summer breaks.
Whether you’re on hiatus from college or wrangling the kids over their summer break, you could do it all with one less worry after LASIK. Head out the door to Strategic Air Command and Aerospace Museum or a day at Lauritzen Gardens without having to find glasses, contacts or contact lens solutions. Simply grab your favorite stylish sunglasses and go!
2. Enjoy carefree Omaha outdoor adventures.
Omaha offers lots of things to do during the pleasant spring and summer months – which just happens to be a great time for comfortable recovery from LASIK vision correction surgery. Nebraskans are past their harsh winter and looking ahead to a summer that rarely gets beyond the 90-degree range.
After LASIK, you can test your sharper vision navigating the Urban Walking Labyrinth, shopping the Old Market, marveling at the Doorly Zoo and Aquarium, or fishing, ziplining and hiking at the many trails and lush parks.
3. Have a summer full of worry-free watersports.
If you wear contact lenses, you probably have a love-hate relationship with every type of water, with the possible exceptions of contact lens cleaning solution and saline eye drops. After LASIK, our patients are free to hit the Fun Plex for bumper boats without stashing prescription eyewear for safekeeping. Imagine a spontaneous trip to the waterpark, floating, tubing and tanking and not freaking out because you’ve just splashed river water in your contacts.
4. Indoor adventures are better after LASIK too.
Omaha is teaming with fabulous museums and indoor activity centers for the whole family. With better vision, there’s no more squinting at exhibits on the way through the Durham Museum or Joslyn Art Museum or struggling to see the bullseye at Archery Games.
