Which is safer — LASIK surgery or Contact Lenses

by Dr. Hamilton on March 27, 2012

When it comes to corneal refractive surgery (i.e. LASIK) – my patients often report that they are going to wait until the procedure’s safety profile improves. I can understand this objection. I’m rather conservative myself when it comes to my own health.

For a long time now, may surgery centers have been making the claim that there are more cases of blindness every year from contact complications than from LASIK complications. I thought that the attached article was interesting.
