Why LASIK Is A Good Option For Parents
Parents have a lot going on, and it seems like there’s never enough time to manage everything, between school, sports practice, dance lessons, dinner, bath time, and bedtime. At Kugler Vision in Omaha, Nebraska, we understand that it’s easy to lose track of things, like your glasses, when you’re worrying about everyone else. We understand the need to simplify your life and experience the benefits of LASIK.
Imagine having two less things on your mind –glasses and contacts. After LASIK, you won’t have to think about where you left your glasses or if you have enough contact solution at home. At your kids’ sports games, there won’t be any sand, dirt, or allergens getting trapped in your contact lenses and irritating your eyes.
If you are a parent who depends on glasses and contacts, maybe you have thought about worst case scenarios like “What if I woke up with the house on fire, and I couldn’t find my glasses? How would I get to the kids and out of the house safely?” The instinct to protect and provide for the safety of children is one of the main reasons why we see so many parents having laser vision correction, like LASIK.
Safety isn’t the only issue for parents wearing glasses and contacts. Many parents are just fed up with smeared and scratched lenses from sticky little fingers grabbing at their glasses, or bent glasses frames from the baby pulling them off.
Parents of older children also worry about their glasses getting knocked off and broken from playing sports. With this constant worry and frustration, glasses interfere with the joys of parenting.
Do Something for Yourself
Taking care of children is a lot easier when you can see clearly without the need for glasses or contacts. Kugler Vision focuses on giving parents their best eyesight medically achievable.
Get the freedom from glasses and contact lenses that you deserve, so you can simplify your routine and take that time to focus on your kids. We encourage parents to invest in LASIK. It’s one of the best ways to simplify your life, and make parenting a little easier.
