6 Ways LASIK Will Change How You See Baton Rouge

Are you wondering if LASIK might be right for you? If you’re tired of glasses and contact lenses, this permanent vision correction may be the solution you’ve been searching for.

With LASIK, the cornea is permanently reshaped. By reshaping the cornea, it corrects refractive errors like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.

If that sounds appealing to you, LASIK could be worth considering! It’s also important to note that you have to qualify as a candidate for the procedure during a LASIK consultation to get LASIK.

But if you do qualify for LASIK? It’s pretty life-changing! Keep reading for 6 ways that having LASIK will change how you see Baton Rouge! 

1.    Sing The River Sculpture, Florida Street & N River Road

Downtown Baton Rouge features Po Shu Wang’s “Sing The River.” This metallic art piece changes colors with the reflection of the Mississippi River. Located at the levee, the unique Sing The River sculpture plays music that changes as the river rises and falls.

With LASIK, you’ll be able to fully enjoy how the water and light play off the piece! Take the time to walk along the lit paths surrounding the art.

Or, sit and relax as you watch the reflections change. You can see Sing The River as far away as the Mississippi River Bridge, thanks to its beautiful lights if you go at night.

After LASIK, the way that you experience art will never be the same. Colors are brighter and more vibrant, and details are clearer and more concise than you ever thought possible.

You may even develop a whole new appreciation for the things that you see around you! The best part is that whether you’re looking at art during the day or at night, you’ll be able to see with crystal clear precision. Can you say the same about your glasses and contact lenses?

2.    Blend Wine Bar, 304 Laurel Street No. 1B

Ever wondered if all your senses would improve after LASIK? Find out for sure when you check out Blend Wine Bar!

Once you have LASIK, your sense of taste, sound, and general perception will become heightened. You’ll enjoy the rich woods and intimate lighting that give Blend Wine Bar its character much more after LASIK!

This classic wine bar features a limited menu of small bites and larger dishes. Nibble on the small plates and charcuterie while sipping on your new favorite wine. Or, enjoy Jamaican pork tenderloin followed by white chocolate bread pudding.

The wine menu includes reds like carignan and malbec, plus pinot noir, merlot, and cabernet sauvignon. Taste some rose or try a varietal like albariño.

Not sure what to order? Ask the servers for their favorite food-and-drink pairings. One thing you won’t have to worry about is if your eyes have gotten irritated.

With contact lenses, you may have needed to take them out after eight hours, but most patients no longer need any visual aids at all after LASIK. So sit back, unwind, and enjoy your new view on life!  

3.    City Hall Plaza, 200 Street Louis Street

Are you looking for a relaxing stroll around beloved Baton Rouge? City Hall Plaza is the perfect place for a walk. This newly designed green space links classic buildings like the library and Old State Capital with natural areas like Galvez Plaza and Repentance Park.

You may think you love this green space, but after LASIK, you’ll be able to see it like never before. That’s because most LASIK patients achieve 20/20 vision or better after the procedure.

You won’t miss a thing as you wander through the promenades or lounge on the lawn. You won’t need to scramble for your glasses to enjoy the view because LASIK provides visual freedom!

4.    Red Dragon Listening Room, 2401 Florida Boulevard

Do you love live music? Head to the Red Dragon Listening Room! This not-for-profit event space hosts two monthly shows featuring touring artists and songwriters.

If you’ve heard that improving one of your senses heightens the rest, getting LASIK makes listening to music a truly joyful experience. You haven’t heard live music until you can enjoy it without your glasses getting in the way as you watch the stage! You don’t want to miss seeing drum solos and guitar riffs, since watching the musicians is half the fun.

You’ll no longer need to think about glare ruining the mood as you try to take a selfie or about contacts drying out your eyes when all you want to do is enjoy the night. LASIK is all about improving your life in millions of tiny ways!

Red Dragon ticket sales go directly to support the performers. Check out Facebook for info on purchasing tickets for artists like Joshua Ray Walker and Rod Picott.

5.    Bluebonnet Swamp Nature Center, 10503 N Oak Hills Parkway

If you’re ready to soak up some oxygen and enjoy local flora and fauna, head to Bluebonnet Swamp. This 102.75-acre park has a 9500-square-foot nature center full of artifacts, carvings, and art displays about the area.

Meander along the gravel paths and look for beautiful cypress-tupelo swamp and hardwood forest habitats. Each area is home to unique birds, snakes, turtles, coyotes, deer, and other exciting animals!

You’ve never seen nature the way you’ll see it after LASIK! You’ll have no trouble spotting local wildlife with your new and improved vision. People of all ages will find something to enjoy at Bluebonnet Swamp.

6.    Louisiana Art and Science Museum, 100 River Road South

The Louisiana Art and Science Museum features permanent and traveling exhibits that are sure to impress! Here, you’ll learn about topics like Ancient Egypt and the solar system through interactive informational displays.

You’ll be extra-thankful for LASIK at the planetarium shows like the Sunset Meditation or Apollo 11: First Steps films. It’ll be much easier to read the informational plaques on the exhibits when you don’t have to squint through glasses or get distracted because your contact lens got out of place in your eye.

Check out the Louisiana Modern and Contemporary Art permanent collection in the Soupcon and Colonnade Galleries. You’ll see works from artists from 1900 through now, such as Clementine Hunter and Caroline Durieux.

If you’re ready to see Baton Rouge with fresh eyes, the first step is finding out if you’re a LASIK candidate! Schedule your LASIK consultation at Williamson Eye Center in Baton Rouge, LA, and start seeing everything around you without anything holding you back!
