The holiday season is officially upon us. Whether you’re celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, all of the above, or another cultural tradition, there is one thing that is universal regardless of the holiday—December is wonderfully hectic, festive, and hopeful.
So, with all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, how is it even possible to consider getting LASIK before the new year?
We’re glad you asked because, at nJoy Vision, we think it’s the most magical time of year for LASIK in Oklahoma City… and around the world!
In case you need some help getting into the LASIK spirit, we’ve made a list (and checked it twice) of eight wondrous reasons to get laser vision correction during the holidays.
Wondrous Reason #1 – Happy Merry Savings
When December rolls around, people switch into two modes: Holiday Vibes Mode and Holiday Shopping Mode.
You can identify someone in Holiday Vibes Mode if they look more festive and act friendlier than usual. This behavior includes but is not limited to, drinking from themed coffee mugs, wearing tacky sweaters, smiling at strangers, and tolerating coworkers.
Holiday Shopping Mode is a bit of a paradox because it’s all about saving money while simultaneously spending money. In most cases, this mode manifests itself on Black Friday and Cyber Monday and extends all the way through the end of the year.
At nJoy Vision, we may not contribute directly to your holiday style, but if you’re shopping for savings, you won’t find a more festive deal than our $600 Holidays of LASIK discount.

Wondrous Reason #2 – LASIK Is the Gift That Keeps on Giving
Unlike those trendy cargo joggers or the remote control helicopter you’ll lose in your neighbor’s tree before noon, LASIK is the one gift you can rely on every day of your life, and it’ll never go out of style.
Imagine just waking up and having clear vision. It’s like experiencing the magic of Christmas every single morning. And when it actually is Christmas morning, you won’t have to hunt for your glasses or put in your contact lenses before scampering into the living room to see what Santa left under the tree.
Wondrous Reason #3 – Enjoy All the Sights, Lights & Late Nights of the Holidays
From Christmas light displays to holiday work parties, everything is bigger, brighter, and more exorbitant during the holidays. Unfortunately, poor vision can make it more challenging to enjoy all the sights, lights, and late nights that make this time of year so magical.
Want to make a trip to Enid to see the world’s tallest fresh-cut Christmas tree? Or how about heading to Chickasha to see over 3.5 million twinkling lights at the Festival of Light? With perfect vision, you’ll be up for any holiday experience, any time. You won’t have to worry about driving at night with scratchy, cloudy contact lenses or looking at Christmas lights through foggy glasses.
Wondrous Reason #4 – It’s the Perfect Time for Some R & R & R
The holidays are definitely hectic, but many people end up with paid time off and even take extra vacation days. That time is often filled with shopping, wrapping, and decorating, but it’s also great for some good old-fashioned rest and relaxation.
Thanks to LASIK’s quick procedure time and almost immediate recovery time, you can rest, relax, and recover from LASIK without disrupting your holiday calendar.
Wondrous Reason #5 – LASIK Is the Perfect Holiday Conversation Starter
You know those cringeworthy situations at holiday gatherings where you’re stuck next to a distant relative or your significant other’s best friend’s significant other, and you have literally nothing to talk about? LASIK from nJoy Vision could be the key to making those awkward moments less awkward.
With more than 20 million procedures performed, LASIK is one of the most popular elective procedures in the United States. So there’s a good chance your conversation partner has either had LASIK, wants LASIK, or knows someone who has had LASIK.
The LASIK chit-chat might not land you on each other’s Christmas card list, but at least you won’t have to stand there in awkward silence until you finish your eggnog.
Wondrous Reason #6 – Use up the Rest of Your FSA/HSA Funds
If your employee benefits package includes a flexible spending account (FSA) or health savings account (HSA), there’s a good chance you’ll have some unused funds in your account at the end of the year.
Even though LASIK is typically considered an elective procedure, it is listed as one of the accepted medical expenses HSAs and FSAs can be used to cover. So flex those bennies and use your FSA/HSA on LASIK at nJoy Vision before those funds expire!
Wondrous Reason #7 – Reduced Seasonal Allergies
If you’re a seasonal allergy sufferer, you probably count down the days to winter every year. Unlike spring, late summer, and early fall, there typically aren’t many allergens floating around in the outside air. But contrary to popular belief, winter does bring its fair share of annoying allergies.
Instead of plant pollen, the culprits of cold weather allergies almost always come from indoors. And the more time you spend indoors, the more opportunities you have to get sniffles, sneezes, and watery eyes from household dust, mold, and pet dander.
While LASIK will not cure your allergies, it can alleviate one of the most common and troublesome symptoms – itchy, watery eyes.
Eye irritation is one of your body’s natural responses when it comes into contact with an allergen. When you wear contact lenses, the microscopic allergens floating around get trapped in your eye and cause more irritation. And with contact lenses, rubbing your eyes just makes them redder, puffier, and itchier.
Winter may provide some respite from seasonal allergies, but why wait until that pernicious pollen starts pummeling your peepers to get rid of those contact lenses for good?
Wondrous Reason #8 – LASIK Is the Ultimate New Year’s Resolution
As the holiday hustle reaches peak bustle in the days leading up to Christmas, don’t be ashamed to admit you’re secretly ready for Twixmas—that week between Christmas and New Year when life slows down and you can finally take a breath.
This downtime gives many people a chance to reflect on the year that was and set goals for the year ahead. At nJoy Vision, we love new year’s resolutions, but we’re not just talking about commitments and intentions. For us, the ultimate new year’s resolution includes clarity and detail of vision, i.e., the resolving power of your sight.
If you’re ready for a fresh perspective heading into the new year, there’s no better time than Twixmas to set the ultimate new year’s resolution.
Eat, Drink & SEE Merry!
Don’t let poor vision keep you from having a wondrous holiday season.
