Contact lenses and glasses can be inconvenient especially if you enjoy water sports and other demanding activities. After all, it can be tough to wear contacts if you're surfing, or to add moisturizing drops if you're climbing a rock. And if you're into sports like basketball or scuba diving, you might face the added cost of prescription sports glasses or diving masks.
The iLASIK Procedure can eliminate the need for prescription lenses, so you're always ready to hit the waves or the bike trail. You won't have to worry about losing your glasses or cleaning and maintaining your contacts, so you can pack less on your excursions. You should always use protective eyewear as recommended for your sports or activities, but after the iLASIK Procedure, prescription eyewear could be a thing of the past.
