It is a well-known fact that LASIK is an optical surgery designed to permanently correct your vision. In most cases, patients who undergo LASIK experience a drastic improvement in all aspects of their vision.
Contact lenses might correct your vision, but they are also hazardous for your eyes if you do not exercise the proper lens hygiene.

Just because modern medicine is becoming increasingly fantastic, doesn’t mean you should stop taking care of yourself. In fact, despite the constant advances in medical research, more and more doctors are looking at preventative medicine as a means of decreasing medical risk.

A vast amount of the activities we do in our daily lives is dependent on our ability to see clearly. Approximately 4.2 billion people around the globe suffer from some type of visual affliction, 80% of which could be avoided and/or cured with proper vision correction.

In the United States alone 283,000 years of time were collectively lost in 2013 due to visual impairment. It is hard to fathom what might have been accomplished during that lost time.
