If you’re a runner, there’s no better way to test your skills than the annual New York City marathon (one of the largest in the world)! This challenging course takes you through all five boroughs of NYC: The Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and even Staten Island. Running with glasses and contacts can hold you back. This marathon will give you memories that will last a lifetime, so why waste those memories on accidentally breaking your glasses or losing a contact lens? Here’s 3 ways that LASIK can enhance your adventure!

See Everything New York City Has to Offer

NYC is chock full of exciting things to see that you won’t want to miss. The course takes you through the entire city: over long bridges, through vibrant communities, and past some of the most spectacular, historic landmarks that you will ever see. LASIK can help you appreciate every detail of our wonderful urban sprawl!

Running Marathons Is Difficult, but Running Marathons with Glasses Can Be Dangerous

Losing your glasses and contacts is easy enough to do without running throughout the entirety of New York City. Last year over 50,000 people finished the course, and there are nearly 100,000 people signed up for the 2017 event already. It is easy to imagine at least a few of them bumping into you as you all hustle down Fourth Avenue.

Now imagine dropping them halfway through the Bronx with thousands of people right behind you, not knowing that they are about to trample your only source of vision. Stressful right? Expensive too. After LASIK, dropping your glasses is the farthest thing from your mind.

Feel Comfortable and Focused as You Take on the Challenge of a Lifetime

No more glasses fogging up as you sweat out the final mile. No more contacts burning your eyes as you strain up the final hill. You will be able to fully concentrate and put 100% of your effort into achieving this incredible feat. LASIK can change your life as it has with millions of others. Why wait? Full recovery is quick, so if you contact us today you’ll be ready to go conquer the city on Sunday, November 5.

There’s a ton of preparation involved with getting ready to perform such an intense test of endurance. The last thing you want to be thinking about is how to keep your glasses from breaking, or what to do if your contact lens falls on the ground.
