The Growth of Laser Eye Surgery

The Growth of Laser Eye Surgery Just a few years ago, the outlook for Laser Eye Surgery looked somewhat bleak. Consumer watchdog Which? published a report highlighting deep and widespread problems among clinics, from inadequate advice and hot-air promises to deceiving prices and wildly unrealistic claims.

How much would you pay for perfect eyesight? What comes to mind when you think of the word priceless? Relationships with friends and loved ones, particular memories and experiences, special heirlooms or trinkets? Thankfully, most things we consider to be priceless we never really have to put a price on. It’s unlikely that someone will approach you one day with an offer to buy Betsy, your beloved miniature schnauzer, for a cool million in cash. Unfortunately, however, there are some priceless things…
