LASIK for Alabama Motorcycle Riders

With some caveats, LASIK is a good potential choice of vision correction for motorcycle riders in Alabama who wear glasses or contact lens wearers. “Contact lenses and eyeglasses can be a real challenge for motorcycle riders-so more and more ask about LASIK,” stated Marc Michelson, M.D., a Birmingham LASIK Surgeon & Corneal Specialist at Michelson Laser Vision. “I do take the opportunity to discuss with motorcycle riders who want LASIK that they should always use proper eye protection from the sun, bugs, small rocks and pebbles and especially the wind, which can really contribute to dry eye symptoms,” he explained. “Further I always remind bike enthusiasts about the potential for eye irritation and motorcycle dry eye caused by the wind, exhaust fumes, pollen and pollution-as well as the Alabama sun and heat.”

At your LASIK consultation the staff will be exploring your lifestyle needs and activities. As a potential LASIK patient we want to take the time necessary so that we can carefully counsel you in order to get the best results and help meet your expectations. Please take the time to tell us about your motorcycle riding interest as well as all of the ways in which you are hoping to benefit from LASIK.
