A recent survey of advice to consumers looking for laser eye treatment found that information offered was often unsatisfactory and, in some cases, inaccurate.
Investigators found that information provided to questions varied greatly from clinic to clinic with some claims, as to the efficacy of equipment, being highly exaggerated.
With consolidation of laser eye companies, the choice available to consumers is reducing as competition diminishes.
Laser eye surgery can be a fantastic experience but because it is advertised all the time, the public think it’s common place, therefore, it’s totally safe. Nothing could be further from the truth and people need to realise that, despite claims, results are not permanent. Look at Jonathon Edwards. Former Olympic, World, European and Commonwealth triple jump champion and still the world record holder. Next time you see him on tv with his glasses on, remember, he has been lasered.
