Why Athletes And Extreme Adventure Fans Choose LASIK Eye Surgery

Why Athletes And Extreme Adventure Fans Choose LASIK Eye Surgery

Runners, mountain climbers, CrossFit participants and sports professionals all have one thing in common: The drive to push their bodies to their best performance.  Achieving a high skill level in these physically demanding and often contact-driven activities means having the vision to match, so what makes LASIK eye surgery the preferred choice for these individuals?

  1. Proven safety record: Although these athletes and adventurers want to push the limits of their physical abilities, they don’t want to risk their sight at the same time.  LASIK helps them achieve perfect vision in a very safe way, using proven, state-of-the-art technology.  At The Laser Center of Coral Gables, our equipment has been responsible for over 15 million refractive procedures worldwide over the last 20 years.
  2. Better reaction time and depth perception: Better vision after LASIK helps improve reaction times and depth perception.  This is something that is essential in fast-paced, action-based activities that require quicker and more effective reactions by participants.
  3. Environmental factors reduced: Whether your sport or activity takes place on a beach, field, dirt track or in the wilds of nature, you’re going to be facing wind and rain as well as the dirt, sand and debris that come with it.  These can easily interfere with wearing glasses or contact lenses but not with LASIK, as the results mimic natural sight.
  4. Minimal equipment: Wearing glasses can be impossible with certain helmets, goggles and gear, while wearing contact lenses isn’t reliable in wind or contact situations.  LASIK surgery means being able to wear the proper equipment with ease and not have the additional expense of custom sports and leisure equipment.
  5. Quick surgery, short downtime: When you’re passionate about your physical performance, you can’t afford to spend a lot of time resting and recovering.  For most LASIK procedures, you get permanent results in just a few minutes and only a few days of downtime.  Post-surgery care is simple and easy to manage in the off-season for professionals and most people are back to their routine in just 2-3 days.
