Reasons for Eye laser surgery
The use of eyeglasses and contact lenses are not always practical.
Many of those with eyeglasses consider themselves to be restricted in terms of mobility and sight in sports, entertainment and daily life. In addition, they also cause cosmetic or mental unrest. Besides, eyeglasses are also difficult to use in some occupations such as acting, cooking and public security.
And contact lenses are also not satisfying due to possible sensitivity to the compounds of cleaning products as well as allergic reactions.
For patients with those problems, refractive surgeryis an alternative.
However, those who are completely satisfied with their eyeglasses or contact lenses might not have a reason to have their eyes operated, in general.
