Love to Curl Up with a Good Book? Here’s 5 Ways that LASIK Improves Your Favorite Pastime


Did you know that LASIK is one of America’s most popular elective procedures? It’s so safe and effective that LASIK patients are overwhelmingly happy with their choice.

The numbers speak for themselves: More than 90% of LASIK patients are happy with their results! People have all kinds of reasons for choosing LASIK, ranging from improving how they look in photos to making it easier to participate in outdoor activities.

But you don’t need to be an aspiring influencer or an avid rock climber to get benefits from LASIK. If you’d rather read books than post selfies or take a hike, LASIK might be right for you, too! If you love to curl up with a good book, keep reading to discover 5 ways that LASIK improves your favorite pastime!

1. Better Vision Than You Had While Relying On Glasses And Contact Lenses

Glasses and contacts can undoubtedly improve your vision, but they have limits. If you want to experience what it’s like to read your favorite books with 20/20 vision or better, LASIK could be a game-changer.

How is this possible? You can thank LASIK for correcting your vision beyond your original prescription.

Even if you’ve worn visual aids your whole life, you’ve never experienced the sharp, crisp vision that LASIK can give you. Whether you’re reading outside or on your couch on a rainy Sunday, there’s nothing better than picking up your favorite book.

Wouldn’t it be fantastic if you no longer had to deal with glare from the sun on your glasses or dry eye from your contacts when you’re finishing a chapter? LASIK means visual freedom from glasses and contact lenses, allowing you to enjoy reading like never before.

LASIK can provide better vision correction than glasses or contacts, so you can read a book with the sharpest vision possible. 

2. No More Glare From Your Glasses

If you like to read on the beach or while sitting in your yard, you’re probably familiar with glare hitting your book. Light can glint off your glasses and block part of the page. Or you might be bothered by the sun in your eyes, but you can’t switch to shades without prescription sunglasses.

LASIK means being able to read with sunnies on and never worry about reflections from glasses getting in the way. Read wherever you want, whenever you want, without thinking about how you’ll see. There are no boundaries or hoops to jump through after LASIK!

3. No More Dry Eyes From Your Contact Lenses

Reading at the end of a long day can be a great way to unwind unless your contacts are dry and gritty from a busy day of work and errands. Trying to read while blinking away dryness or clearing off sticky contacts takes the relaxation out of relaxing with a good book.

LASIK means freedom from contact lenses and the discomfort of contacts that get too dry. Instead, you can read with comfortable eyes.

Want to spend your day diving into a new book? The last thing you’ll need to worry about is if you have spare glasses or enough contact lens solution. Read and stay in the moment!

4. Don’t Have To Worry About Breaking Your Glasses If You Take A Little Nap While Reading 

No matter how good the book is, every reader has dozed off while reading. Rolling over on your glasses can damage the frames or lenses.

Talk about waking up to an unpleasant and expensive surprise! LASIK means you can drift off while reading a good book without worrying about what will happen to your glasses in your sleep.

5. Shopping For Books Is Easier

What bookworm doesn’t love popping into a bookstore to browse the new releases? After LASIK, you’ll no longer have to worry about squinting to try and find a new book when visiting your favorite bookstore.

LASIK is amazing because it can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Correcting your vision will make it easy to spot exciting titles from across the store and navigate the aisles with clarity.

When you find a book that catches your eye, you’ll have no problem examining the cover or the dust jacket blurb. After LASIK, you’ll have enhanced visual acuity, meaning things will look sharper and clearer than ever before, whether quickly scanning for a specific book or taking in everything around you.  

LASIK will make visiting bookstores more fun, allowing you to immerse yourself in the joy of looking at books without worrying about blurry vision getting in your way.

Is LASIK Right for You?

If you’re ready to start reading with fresh eyes, the first step is to talk to your eye doctor at Herschel LASIK and Cataract Institute to see if you could be a good LASIK candidate. LASIK can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. The prescription limits for LASIK are: 

  • +6.00 diopters of farsightedness
  • Astigmatism up to 6 diopters
  • Nearsightedness up to -12.00 diopters

If your prescription doesn’t meet the guidelines for LASIK or you have age-related vision changes such as presbyopia, don’t worry. You may benefit from another vision correction procedure. Your eye doctor can explain your options if LASIK isn’t a good fit.

LASIK is Safe and Effective

LASIK can deliver if you count on clear eyes to read the latest best-seller. The vision correction procedure can improve your sight enough that you may not need glasses or contacts anymore. Many people find that LASIK corrects vision as well as or better than glasses and contacts.

In addition, LASIK’s vision benefits don’t include the drawbacks of contacts and glasses. Your glasses will no longer have dirt or smudges, and you won’t need to worry about your contacts feeling uncomfortable or dry out.  

LASIK is performed in your eye doctor’s office and takes less than an hour. Recovery is fast and usually uncomplicated. Your eyes might feel a little sore for a day or so, and you will need to use prescription eye drops to prevent infection.

You’ll notice better vision almost immediately after LASIK, and improvements will gradually improve over several months. Before long, you can curl up with a book, free from glasses and contacts.

Beautiful office. Amazing and caring staff. Getting my surgery done Saturday and the Doctor and the staff helped choose the right option for me and I didn't feel pushed to commit. One of the only few who commits the patient to a dry eye treatment as per my research. Post-surgery I hope to keep my 5 star rating because I have nothing bad to say!

I recently did my LASIK procedure about 1 week ago and was completely blown away from beginning to end with the SERVICE received from the entire staff at Herschel LASIK. The office is beautifully decorated and the staff was always professional, personable, knowledgeable and friendly. I particularly enjoyed the way that everything was explained clearly before, during and after my procedure and questions were always encouraged and answered. My experience was the best encounter to date with a physician. Excellent doctor + excellent support staff +excellent service = excellent experience and a happy customer. Thank you so much Dr. Herschel, Doris and Francesca.

Great service, sometimes a bit of a wait, but I take a full lobby as a sign of a well recommended doctor. Staff is friendly & quick to answerphones & squeeze me in when I got an eye problem. Would definitely recommend them to anyone wanting to get LASIK. Doctor even personally called to check on me the night after my procedure.

I got my LASIK procedure done here. I was apprehensive, mostly because anything to do with my eyes kind of freaked me out.
I went under a free consultation. The nurses/assistants were very nice and they answered any questions I had. Then I met Dr. Herschel and he was very nice and understanding. He explained all that would happen, how everything works, how long recovery will be, everything.
So, I agreed and start the process. I love the fact you always meet with Dr. Herschel at every appointment.
I now have 20/20 vision.
I'd highly recommend going to him for all of your vision needs.

Great surgeon and great staff. Do your research, Dr. Herschel is more than just a LASIK surgeon. He is certified and specializes in all areas of eye surgery so have peace of mind that you are getting one of the best. They use current technology and machines. More so, if your eyes aren’t ready for surgery he has no problem delaying 1-2 weeks until they are 100% good-to-go. He will not risk your health for the sake of money.
