10 life changes since getting LASIK

by Chris Willson

I'm a British photographer who's lived in Okinawa for 15 years.
4 years ago, I had LASIK at the Shinjuku branch of the Kobe Kanagawa Eye Clinic Japan. Here are 10 ways my life changed!

Saving money

No need to buy contact lenses, or solutions, or glasses.

Saving time

Don't have to spend a few minutes in the morning and before going to bed dealing with contact lenses.

No emergency glasses days

I'd wear contacts almost every day, but if I had sore eyes I'd have to wear glasses. I'd then have awkward conversations with friends or workmates explaining why I was wearing glasses.

No foggy glasses

No problems going from cool air-conditioned buildings to the humid outdoors.

Smaller wash kit

No extra bag of solutions, cleaning products, spare lenses, and spare glasses. Much easier for travel.

No lost lenses

No worries with water sports. When swimming, snorkeling or scuba diving, no chance of losing a contact lens.

Easier flights

Long flights from Japan to the UK are made easier when I don't have to choose between contact lenses or glasses.

Night vision

Being able to glance over and see the alarm clock clearly without glasses.

Outdoor living

Camping is easier when you don't have to deal with contact lenses. Especially if there are no places to wash your hands.

Peace of mind

If there is a natural disaster I won't be searching for glasses in the middle of the night. If I'm stranded somewhere I don't need to worry about how many hours I've been wearing contact lenses.
