Follow Through on Your New Year's Resolution With LASIK
Despite good intentions, only 9% of Americans keep their New Year’s resolutions. Many aspects explain this failure — other obligations, too lofty goals, and life itself can get in the way. However, one thing might play a greater role in your New Year’s success than you think: your vision.
Almost everyone takes their vision for granted, but if you don’t have 20/20 vision, it could keep you from reaching your goals. This year, follow through on your New Year’s resolutions with help from LASIK. Here’s how it can help you.
Add to Your Savings
If your goal for the New Year is financial independence, setting a budget, putting money in a savings account, and cutting costs is paramount. However, some essential costs may not be necessary following a LASIK procedure.
Each year, you spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars on contacts, eyeglasses, and additional eye appointments beyond your one-year checkup. Though LASIK comes with an upfront cost, your insurance may cover it. Even if your insurance doesn’t cover LASIK, the savings you gather over a lifetime make the procedure a good use of your money.
Losing weight and staying fit are two of the most common New Year’s resolutions. Though the idea seems as obvious as getting a gym membership or joining a recreational sports league, poor vision can hinder your progress and demotivate you.
With a LASIK procedure, your blurry vision becomes an issue of the past. When you have clear vision, you perform better on the court or ball field and enjoy exercise more than you would if you had to wear glasses or contacts.
If your goal is to get fit, your vision plays a massive role. Thanks to LASIK, you can hit that game-winning jumper, enjoy your jog without your glasses falling off, or smash a home run.
Engage in Extreme Sports and Activities You’ve Always Wanted To Do
You may overlook extreme sports and other fun activities when your vision is poor. Imagine trying to skydive while trying to keep your glasses in place or scuba diving while your contacts fog up. It’s enough to end your pursuit of these activities before you even try.
If your New Year’s resolution is to do these activities, LASIK can play a crucial role. With crystal-clear vision, you can enjoy seeing undersea landscapes, watching the view from 10,000 feet, or doing anything else that requires clear, unadulterated vision.
Building confidence goes beyond merely working out or dressing nicer. It’s as much mental as it is physical. When you get LASIK, you can shed the eyeglasses that result in insecurities that hamper your self-confidence. Added to your LASIK-friendly workout regimen, you can reach new heights with your confidence in the New Year.
