And as we head into a summer of sport - Euro 2016, Wimbledon, the Olympics - whether you’re an armchair enthusiast, a top sports personality, or an amateur motivated to move more, it would certainly be easier to enjoy your sport of choice without the hindrance of glasses.
Yes there are contact lenses, but we all know what a faff they can be, and there’s the risk of them falling out during that all important match, or getting an eye infection.
That’s why many top sports people have chosen laser eye surgery to ensure their performance is the best it can be.
Golfers Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Vijay Singh; Olympic rowers Sir Steve Redgrave and Tom Solesbury; athletes Jonathan Edwards and Daley Thompson; footballer Mario Balotelli and former tennis star Justine Henin - to name just a few.
Our sporty patients have certainly seen the benefits of laser eye surgery too. Such as this patient who explains how fantastic it is to be able to go swimming following treatment.
The recovery period following surgery is also shorter than you might think, as explained by our surgeon Dr Stephen Doyle.
All eye surgical procedures carry a level of risk including not obtaining the desired outcome, through to varying levels of visual loss. Your eye surgeon will discuss the risks and benefits, including ones specific to your circumstances, at the time of your pre-operative consultation.
