Laser eye surgery is where a computer controlled laser slowly and delicately reshapes the cornea. This aims to resolve any current sight difficulties and drastically improve the person’s vision to the point where they no longer require extra visual aid in the form of glasses or contact lenses.
Eyes are the most sensitive part of the body, and sight is, arguably, the most important of the body’s senses. Having your sight damaged by laser eye surgery gone wrong is likely to have long term affects that will hugely reduce your quality of life. A lot of trust is put into doctors who carry out such a delicate procedure, but the vast majority would expect the procedure to be delivered with the highest of standards.
