You may ask “what has beauty and fashion got to do with laser eye surgery?” but in fact, for many fashionistas, the need to wear glasses is a real dilemma when choosing an outfit every day. Some high profile glasses wearers, such as Gok Wan, become known for their glasses and even bring out their own range of frames – they wouldn’t look the same, or be as recognisable, without their glasses. But for many fashion and beauty conscious people glasses are an ugly inconvenience.
Glasses and contact lenses are also a concern for ladies who love makeup because you have to consider the types of eye shadow, mascara and liners that you can use and adapt your make up accordingly. The right formula is helpful, for example, cream shadow won’t drop irritating, magnified particles into your eyes as powder can. Ditto tubing mascaras, which use polymers to bind to lashes and don’t flake. These are all useful tips. However, more and more are turning to laser eye surgery to not only improve their eyesight but allow them the freedom to wear whatever makeup they like.
Laser eye surgery also has a fast recovery period and this, therefore, means that makeup can be worn relatively soon after you have recovered. It is generally recommended that you do not wear make up for three days before surgery and a week afterwards, but you should always follow your surgeon’s advice.
So, if you hate your glasses and fiddling around with contact lenses is getting you down, give us a call at Advanced Vision Care and arrange a consultation.
