3 Reasons Your Gym and Your Glasses Are Not Friends

Exercise is important, especially in the Manhattan area where living spaces can be very small and cramped. Finding the motivation to get up and work out can be difficult enough as it is for many people, so it helps to eliminate excuses and make it easier on yourself by making the gym a better and more fun experience. If you have glasses, you can probably relate to this short list of ways they can interrupt your gym day.

You Came to Pick up Weights, Not Your Glasses

Working out obviously requires a lot of movement. Squatting, doing crunches, and especially running becomes a serious headache when you are constantly having to pick your glasses up off the floor. Eventually, you or another gym dweller is going to step on them before you can find them. This would ruin anybody’s week, let alone your gym session.

Imagine walking to the treadmill knowing that you’ll be able to see without having the uncomfortable sensation of glasses bouncing around on your face. LASIK makes this possible, so why not find out if you are a LASIK eye surgery candidate to see if it is right for you?

Glasses Fog Up During a Heated Workout

When you have to wear glasses to the gym, you’re in a bit of a catch-22. Either your glasses are going to fall off as mentioned above, or they’ll stay on your face and steam up as soon as you really start to hit your groove. Now you have to stop what you’re doing, wipe off your glasses, and by the time you get back up to pace, your heart rate has gone down.

Even if you were somehow able to avoid fogging up your glasses, your face is still going to get sweaty. Wiping off your face becomes an event rather than a quick motion. This makes for a very inefficient workout, especially considering both of these will happen over and over.

If you want to sweat in peace, it might be time to find out more about LASIK.

Feel Motivated Right When You First Wake Up

Many people who have undergone LASIK remark that the first time they woke up with clear vision, it was like a whole new world. Reduced dependency on glasses and contacts lenses often offers our patients a “new lease on life”. Feeling great in the morning is a surefire way to give you the confidence and motivation you need to get to the gym early and start your day the right way.
