Laser Vision Correction vs. Water Fun

This entry was originally posted over the summer.  However, due to the magic of computers and internet, somehow it disappeared.  Originally we thought it would be odd to re-post it in November, but in reality this information applies year-round.  So all of you “tri-athlete types” and “water aerobic aficionados,” read on!…

A common concern that many people have when considering LASIK laser vision correction is that they must avoid the water completely for several weeks…or even months.  And with the active lifestyle that many Central Texans enjoy at all of our wonderful pools and lakes — even nearby water parks and beaches — limiting water fun can be a major hindrance to achieving visual freedom especially over the summer months.  So for all of you who are deciding between “Laser Vision Correction” OR “Water Fun,” there’s good news…

You can usually do BOTH!  The general guideline for enjoying pools, lakes and hot tubs after laser vision correction surgery is:  Wear a good pair of goggles for the first month.  That should keep germs and chlorine away during your initial healing time frame.

So, go ahead and enjoy all of the visual freedoms in Austin and Central Texas that corrective eye surgery can give you…even cooling off or exercising in the water!
