Don’t Miss A Moment On Your Wedding Day With LASIK

Back to Blog

Spring is in the air! Along with the coming of the wonderful warmer weather, comes the start of wedding season. For those getting married this year, congratulations! Getting married is an exciting time, but it can also be stressful. Of course, you want your day to be perfect, but you also want to be able to enjoy every second of it and soak in every detail.


Here are three reasons why getting LASIK before your wedding will be the second-best decision of your life (your future spouse is number one, of course).

1. You don’t want to deal with contacts. One of the biggest irritations on your wedding day could be your contacts! So many things could go wrong when relying on your contacts for your vision. Contacts or contact solution can be forgotten, possibly leaving you with your 5-year-old backup pair of glasses and blurry vision. Contacts are also not ideal because they can rip, fall out, move around, and make you uncomfortable.

2. Glasses are even worse than contacts. If you think your contacts could be irritating, think of how much worse your glasses would be! Choosing to take your glasses off for photos, or for a large portion of the wedding, can lead to you missing out on some of the most important parts of your big day. You want to see the look on your partner’s face when they see you for the first time on your wedding day, you want to see how happy your wedding has made your family and friends, and you want to be able to see every detail you have been planning for months. LASIK can give you the freedom to experience every moment to its fullest.

3. Confidence is beautiful. Nothing is more beautiful than a confident, happy, bride on her wedding day, or a confident groom watching the love of his life walk down the aisle towards him! Having clear vision without dealing with contacts or glasses will not only help you see your best but will help you feel your absolute best!


Know when the time is right.

You don’t want to put off LASIK until the last minute. Proper planning will make sure you find the best doctor, and have the best care, for the best possible LASIK outcome. We recommend planning your LASIK procedure for at least 3 months prior to your wedding. With some extra time, you can make sure you have attended all of your post-operative appointments, your eyes are healing well, and your vision is crystal clear! Sooner is better when it comes to LASIK, so you don’t waste another minute on contacts or glasses!


An investment worth planning for

LASIK is more affordable than you may think, and if you have an HSA or FSA it can be used to cover the cost of LASIK. If you are concerned about the cost of LASIK, payment plans, or care credit are good options, check out our payment options here. The one-time cost of LASIK is nothing compared to the years of clear vision you will get, and the money you will save when you don’t have to pay for contacts or glasses.

We know how life-changing LASIK can be, and how impactful clear vision will be on your wedding day. But don’t take our word for it. If you want to hear from another bride who had an amazing LASIK experience at Chu Vision Institute prior to their wedding day, watch Leahnor in the video below.
