The Safety of Laser Vision Correction
Considering the number of patients on an annual basis who are undergoing vision correction surgery, I think that probably speaks for itself. I mean there is definitely an inherent concern and I think it really bears out because of lack of understanding or a lack of awareness. And when you consider the aspect of, again, getting back to this idea of comparison to other correction procedures, contact lenses, there is a lifetime risk that is far higher say with a contact lens than it is for vision correction surgery. But to be more specific as it relates to the surgery itself, we're talking about a five to 10 minute procedure where we're really using extremely precise technology and high powered antibiotics to avoid the complications in order to allow somebody to achieve freedom. And I think that's really what this is about, is trying to enhance someone's quality of life through vision.
