Tee Off at the Allentown Municipal Golf Course

If you’re a golfer, then you may already know that the Allentown Municipal Golf Course is one of the best places in Lehigh Valley to play a round or two. After all, the 18-hole Championship course is perfect for both experts and beginners, thanks to plenty of greens and space for everyone.

Did you know that you can take your golf game to the next level when you have LASIK? Wearing glasses and contact lenses can become downright distracting when you’re trying to line up the perfect shot.

Your glasses may slide down your face, causing you to lose focus. Even if you wear contacts, they may cause you irritation or dry out your eyes. Whether you’re a beginner or a pro, the last thing you want to deal with while playing golf is your eyes hampering you.

After LASIK, you can look forward to better sight than you’ve ever experienced. Visual aids like glasses and contacts allow you to see, but it’s not the same.

With LASIK, you’ll have sharper, clearer vision. You’ll also have improved depth perception and a better ability to see contrast. These are both pretty important when you’re playing golf!

Visit Your Favorite Wineries During Wine and Shine Lehigh Valley

As the world comes out of hibernation, there’s no better time to visit the Lehigh Valley Wine Trail! Every weekend in March, the popular event is back, allowing you to see your favorite local wineries by using your passport on the Wine Trail while you try some tasty nibbles perfectly paired along the way.

Drinking wine is all about indulging your senses. It may seem like it’s only about taste, but the combination of smell and sight can be enough to take any wine tasting to the next olfactory level.

Having LASIK can get you there. Have you ever started swirling your wine around in a glass and accidentally fogged up your eyeglasses?

It may be a small problem, but it’s all these small things that can add up and become a nuisance, like when you’re cooking a meal at home or moving from indoors to outdoors and end up with foggy glasses. Once you enhance your vision, it will give you a better appreciation for everything in your life.

From wines tasting more robust to flavors in your food exploding on your tongue, there’s no telling all the ways that having LASIK could change your life and your eyesight for the better!

Check Out the Mayfair Festival of the Arts this May

It doesn’t feel like spring in Allentown without a visit to the Mayfair Festival of the Arts! Held for three days over Memorial Day weekend, the festival educates the public about different art forms.

From pottery to glass and woodworking, there is something for everyone here. If you’ve ever struggled to understand art or feel like it connects with you, getting LASIK might be the perfect solution.

There’s a reason why this vision correction procedure has a 96% rate of satisfaction with patients! A big part of it is because it changes the way you see.

From a fundamental standpoint, it reduces or eliminates the need to use visual aids to see. But another reason why LASIK is so popular is that it helps you see the world with brand-new eyes.

There’s nothing like looking at art, whether you’re in a gallery or enjoying the Mayfair Festival and seeing the tiniest details. Often, these details take a piece of art from ordinary to extraordinary.

Many LASIK patients start to feel this way about everything they see in the world around them. There’s nothing more beautiful than recognizing beauty in the smallest places.

Take Up Horseback Riding with Lessons at Manito Equestrian Center

If you’re tired of feeling like you’ve been cooped up inside all winter, it’s time to do something about it. Working out at the gym can feel tedious, so why not try something new?

Horseback riding is an incredible form of exercise that is anything but boring! Not only are you being physically active, but you’re also forming a connection with an animal.

Needless to say, visual aids like glasses and contacts can make it more challenging when you’re first starting to take lessons. Wearing a helmet and having glasses on your face could break your concentration while you’re trying to learn the basics.

Contacts could also easily become irritated if you get dust or bits of hay in your eyes while you’re practicing at Manito Equestrian Center. If you’re thinking about having LASIK, you need to know that there are some things you need to stop doing while you’re recovering, including horseback riding.

Sustaining any trauma to your eyes or face after having LASIK could mean less than optimal results. Your eye doctor at Bausch Eye Associates will tell you when it’s safe to go back to horseback riding and other tasks.

Am I a Good LASIK Candidate?

There’s no doubting that LASIK is a fantastic procedure for treating refractive errors like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, but it’s not for everyone. You have to qualify as a candidate to undergo the vision correction procedure. Here are some of the factors that make up a good LASIK candidate:

  • You’re at least 18 years old
  • You’re not currently pregnant or nursing
  • You have a prescription that hasn’t changed in at least a year or more
  • You have realistic expectations about what LASIK can achieve
  • You have thick enough corneas
  • Your pupils aren’t too large
  • Your prescription is within the treatment limits

These are only some of the factors that go into determining if you’re a good LASIK candidate. To know for sure if you’re a candidate, you need to schedule a LASIK consultation.
