Lasik Surgery

Are you thinking about getting LASIK this winter? Are you also wondering what you are able to do in Fort Collins after getting LASIK?

There are many benefits of getting LASIK, especially in the winter. Keep reading to learn more about them, as well as 5 winter activities to try in Fort Collins after LASIK!

More Free Time

During the summer, it’s normal to want to spend as much time as you can outdoors. Who wouldn’t want to enjoy the warmer weather?

For most people, this means you do not have enough free time to spend recovering from LASIK. But in the winter it is usually the opposite.

It’s pretty likely you have more availability because you may want to avoid the cold and stay indoors. Since life is calmer during the winter, it is ideal for recovering from LASIK.

You can take time off or use time during a holiday for LASIK eye surgery and enjoy a short “staycation.” You can enjoy relaxing while snuggled up under a blanket and make your recovery as calming as possible.

Cold Weather

Studies about eye health have looked at ties between humidity and humidity at the time of LASIK eye surgery. Results from these studies conclude that the lower levels of humidity and temperatures in winter are the best conditions for getting LASIK. For this reason, winter is the best season for getting LASIK.

Be Prepared for the New Year

Everyone wants to start a new year off on a good foot. Goals that help you make positive life changes are the best ones to think about.

A great way to achieve this is to start the new year off with clear vision! Get LASIK this winter so you can enjoy the upcoming seasons and the many fun activities ahead of you!

These are only some of the reasons that winter is the best time to get LASIK. Make sure to talk to your eye doctor at Cutarelli Vision about scheduling the procedure at an ideal time.
