Wearing glasses not only creates interference but may also lead to severe injuries. The advent of contact lenses and LASIK has played a pivotal role in ensuring that an athlete’s career is not derailed just because he/ she must wear glasses.
Fact: Although glasses are not ideal to swim with, contacts are also not the answer. The FDA recommends that you do not expose contacts to any type of water: tap water; swimming pools; oceans; lakes; hot tubs and showers. All sorts of viruses and micro-organisms live in water.
Nadia is the administrative head at Envision. After 19 years of dependence on glasses and contact lenses for myopia she had LASIK. After her procedure 3 years ago, she has not looked back and truly appreciates her freedom from glasses.
