When the snow flies and the wind blows, the cold air can be a real motivator in planning a warm vacation. The prospect of sitting under the sun on a warm sandy beach is something many of us think about every time we get into our cold car in the morning. However, if you’re getting away this winter, and if you live with a vision problem, you may not be getting the most out of your vacation.


Swimming in the ocean is an incredible experience. Feeling the power of the waves and seeing the endless horizon are incomparable. If you’re swimming on a beach in a beautiful warm climate, you aren’t likely the only person there, and that makes it all the more difficult to find a safe place to leave your glasses. Wearing prescription glasses into the ocean isn’t an option and leaving them on the beach can be scary as they might get stolen or damaged. With laser vision correction, you can avoid the hassle of worrying about your glasses, and you’ll be able to clearly see that horizon from the water.


There’s nothing like swimming underwater in a tropical place. Exploring a reef or a crystal-clear lagoon in the Caribbean with their endless colourful fish makes for an experience you’ll remember for the rest of your life. Snorkeling becomes difficult, however, with prescription glasses, as you either spring for expensive prescription snorkeling masks or go down without any vision correction at all. Many life-long wearers of glasses can attest to the discomfort felt when going without for long periods of time without any correction, and often remark of headaches. Laser vision correction is one of the best ways to get the most out of any experience underwater.


Going for a hike in a tropical jungle or rainforest is mesmerizing, but in such damp places it’s common for glasses to fog up and become a challenge to see through. In addition to this, if they somehow fall into an irretrievable place, or break, you’re now hiking in an unknown and potentially dangerous place without proper vision. Consider how much stress you could avoid with laser vision correction. In addition to not having to regularly clean a pair of lenses, you also aren’t risking your safety if you lose them.
