The Best Time of Year for LASIK Eye Surgery

When thinking about LASIK to correct vision and kiss your glasses or contact lenses goodbye, it’s not a decision you should make spontaneously. One thing you’ll want to consider is the timing for your procedure.

Board-certified ophthalmologist Dr. Brian Will at Will Vision and Laser Centers in Salem, OR, and Vancouver, WA, explains why the colder months are perfect for LASIK by providing additional recovery time to heal properly before returning to work or your regular daily routine.

Make 2022 the Year of Clear Vision

You can improve your quality of life for next year and beyond by scheduling an eye exam today. A simple annual screening can create a whole new world for you. Planning your LASIK procedure is an excellent way to inspire a meaningful change in your lifestyle by considerably enhancing your eyesight. Once you get eye surgery, you have the whole rest of your life to enjoy its benefits.

Taking Time Off

Many people plan vacations during the holiday season to relax and spend time away from work. These breaks are also an ideal opportunity to resolve vision issues like farsightedness, nearsightedness, astigmatism, and dry eye.

The healing period associated with LASIK is not extensive, so you shouldn’t need to cut into your vacation time for your recovery. However, it’s wise to plan for contingencies in case you experience any complications that may keep you from work.

Better When Cold

Recovery from LASIK may go more smoothly in the winter months, when there are cooler temperatures and lower humidity. The colder climate lowers your risk of needing a follow-up procedure or corrective surgery.

At Will Vision and Laser Centers, we strive to create the best possible experience for our patients. Optimal conditions for LASIK eye surgery are almost here. So, if you have any questions about eye surgery and the weather, contact our medical staff today.
