6 Exciting Ways To Experience Houston After LASIK Surgery

There’s a lot to love about living in Houston. From our amazing museums and performing arts venues, to our renowned restaurants and one-of-a-kind vintage shops, there’s almost too much to do here. You know what would make it even better? Never having to worry about glasses or contacts again!


Seeing Houston with crisp, clear, 20/20 vision will make you appreciate the city more than ever. Keep reading to discover six exciting ways to experience Houston after LASIK!

1. Step up your Instagram game at Gerald D. Hines Waterwall Park


The best way to stand out on Instagram is to do something different. What better way to shake things up than to have Waterwall Park as your backdrop? Even if you don’t like Instagram, Waterwall Park will look stunning after you’ve had LASIK.

Did you know that LASIK has a 96% success rate? Trust us, you won’t regret saying goodbye to your glasses or contacts!

2. Save your money for fun activities in Houston!


Living in a thriving city like Houston isn’t cheap. Many people see cost as a reason to not get LASIK, but we disagree. Think about how much you’re spending every year on glasses and contacts. It adds up fast. With patient financing and flexible monthly payments available, LASIK is an investment.

Wouldn’t you like to have more money to do the things you love? Maybe you’ve been thinking about buying a new bike to go explore the Jack Brooks Park Trail. Or you want to check out Theodore Rex, which was recently named one of the country’s best new restaurants of 2018.

It’s a lot easier if you have some extra cash in your pocket. LASIK in Houston with Diagnostic Eye Center can help get you there. Oh, and exploring is so much more fun without glasses!

3. Travel spontaneously whenever you want


Ever thought about hopping on a plane without planning your destination? It’s almost impossible to do if you wear glasses or contacts.

Think about it. Any smart traveler knows they need to bring an extra set of glasses and a few extra boxes of contacts. Then you have to make sure you have a TSA approved bottle of contact lens solution as well. Aren’t you tired of this?

LASIK means visual freedom in the best way possible. No more contacts or glasses. No more fumbling around for a way to see when you wake up in the morning.

You can grab your bag and go wherever you want. There’s no glasses or contacts holding you back after LASIK!

4. Say hello to stocking up on cheap sunglasses


For people who wear glasses, cheap sunglasses do nothing but taunt them. Yes, you can wear them with contacts, but it’s so much easier to not have to!

Worst case scenario with cheap sunglasses: you lose them and buy another pair. No panicking if you scratch them or sit on them. Plus, we live in a climate that’s hot, hot, hot — sunglasses that don’t cost $500 are a much better investment, especially if you lose things a lot.

If you love fashion, cheap sunglasses are the way to go. Imagine matching your sunglasses to every single outfit. This is all possible after LASIK in Houston.

5. Check out the famous Texas-shaped lazy river, glasses and contacts free


If you live in Houston, chances are you’ve heard of the Texas-shaped lazy river at the Marriott Marquis. Lazy rivers are made for hot summer days with a cocktail in hand. Preferably after you’ve had an 80-minute massage at the Marriott’s spa.

Contacts and a lazy river do not mix! Chlorine or even swimming becomes downright miserable with contacts.

They might dry out since it’s hot outside, or you could get chlorine in your eyes. Chlorine burns! Now your lazy afternoon has been interrupted so you can go flush your eyes out and hope they stop hurting.

Here’s the better solution: get LASIK this winter and then go to the lazy river this summer. LASIK has a fast recovery period, and each day after the procedure, your vision gets better. After a few weeks, glasses and contacts will feel like a lifetime ago.

6. Watch TV in bed


Sometimes, it’s the little things that make the most difference. Think about how you watch TV in bed now. Admit it, you’ve fallen asleep with your contacts on.

This happens most when you’re watching TV in bed. Waking up the next morning is the worst because your eyes feel like they’ve been glued shut. Let’s face it — your eyes look miserable and bloodshot from wearing contacts for 24 straight hours! It’s just a bad situation all around, but it happens to everybody.

Break the pattern and get LASIK. Watching TV in bed will become your favorite activity. If you fall asleep with the TV and the lights on, your eyes will be fine. And, you won’t have to worry about sleeping in your expensive glasses and scratching your lenses.


Do you even remember what it feels like to wake up without needing glasses or contacts? It’s a pretty fantastic feeling! Get ready to be the epitome of #iwokeuplikethis every morning.

As crazy as it sounds, 2019 is almost here. Do yourself a favor and give yourself the gift of LASIK. Schedule your LASIK consultation with Diagnostic Eye Center today! Isn’t it time to get the vision you’ve always wanted?
