Your wedding is the biggest day of your life. You start planning months in advance, years in some cases. Who to invite? Where to hold the function? What to wear? How to make sure you look as fabulous as possible on your big day? When it comes to looking great on your wedding day, no stone can be left unturned, right? Perfect outfit, matching accessories, well-rested sleep et al to ensure you look as fresh as possible. Some of you may even go the extra mile and get different procedures done to enhance the way you look on your big day. It could be anything ranging from a spray tan to cosmetic surgeries such as Lasik eye surgery. Yes, you read that right! And if you think about it, why wouldn’t anyone want permanent freedom from glasses before they say “I Do”. Still trying to wrap your head around why anyone would opt for such a big surgery right before the wedding? Instead, ask why not? With rapid advancements in the field medical technology, a getting simple LASIK procedure before your “I Dos” should be the least of your worries and here’s why:
- See Better
Who wouldn’t you want to walk down the aisle with 20-20 vision? You can see your significant other with ultimate clarity. Can’t miss their expressions while walking down the aisle, or rather don’t want to! Lasik eye surgery can improve visual errors such nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism etc. Once you’ve performed the Lasik surgery, you will be able to enjoy enhanced visual clarity, sharpness and color contrasts. Without Lasik surgery, you might have to keep wiping your misty glasses because of all the tears. But, with LASIK, you will be able to see the entire room clearly, without missing a beat!
- Look Great
After your LASIK surgery, you will never have to wear glasses or contacts again. Imagine being able to click pictures without having to repeatedly take your glasses off or just suffer through the flash reflecting on your glasses. No worrying about drying or shifting contacts either. Think effortlessly fabulous wedding photos! Those last a lifetime and you can’t have your beautiful eyes hidden behind those cumbersome glasses on your wedding day! High school was long enough as it is.
- Reduce that Worry-List
Weddings can be a pretty overwhelming event to plan out. Everything is planned down to the nitty-gritty details with back-ups in place. For someone who requires glasses or contacts, that involves at least one extra pair of contacts and glasses each. They have to be on stand-by during the wedding just in case a contact pops or the glasses break. Even while packing for your honeymoon, you’ve to make sure you have extras because you don’t really want to spend time hunting for something as menial as lens solution. But, why not get rid of this entire aspect with Lasik surgery? If you think about it, it takes away a lot from your to-do list, both during the wedding as well as the honeymoon!
- Feel Confident
Many LASIK patients noticed that they feel much better about their appearance once they stop wearing eyeglasses. It unconsciously boosts a person’s confidence making them more self-assured. It fills you with new vigor to try out activities that weren’t practically enjoyable with glasses, like surfing, snowboarding, diving, paragliding or even a wacky dance at your wedding! Don’t worry about your glasses falling off or your contacts shifting mid way anymore! And think of all the activities you can indulge in at your honeymoon! And what’s better than finally being able to impress your partner with your adventurous side! Benefits all around, am I right?!
And finally, the best part about getting LASIK is that it doesn’t take long to recover. All you have to do is schedule an appointment with your laser surgeon and get all the required details. Your ophthalmologist will then help you plan your surgery and follow-up appointments according to your wedding plans. LASIK not only saves you a lot of hassle and stress during the wedding & honeymoon but also lets you enjoy your big day exactly how you always envisioned it, minus those chunky glasses!
