By now, just about everyone has heard of LASIK surgery. A less than 20-minute procedure to correct refractive errors and eliminate the need for glasses or contacts? It almost sounds too good to be true!
Many people are hesitant to even learn more about laser eye surgery, either by attending a free LASIK seminar or a LASIK consultation, thinking there must be some hidden catch. A three-year-long study recently found that contact lens users who chose to have LASIK were more satisfied with their vision a year after the procedure, and even more satisfied in the following years.
