Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Laser Eye Surgery

Huffington Post recently published the article “Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Laser Eye Surgery” on the 11th of June 2014.

Extract from Article:

We asked Dr. Sonia Yoo, M.D., professor of ophthalmology at the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute at the University of Miami Health System, and Dr. James Salz, M.D., a Los-Angeles based refractive and cataract surgeon and clinical spokesperson for the American Academy of Ophthalmology, to answer the questions we’ve always wondered about getting corrective vision surgery — specifically, LASIK, which is undergone by about 700,000 Americans a year.
