Recovering from any surgery is an unpleasant experience at the best of times, and an absolute nightmare at the worst.

What’s the recovery period for surgery like?

The thing is, though, unlike glasses and contacts, you expect Laser Eye Surgery to be a one-time jobby.

There are, however, a small number of cases when their… Read more

How about the skin: the largest organ in the body and our outer barrier to the world that has to endure scratching, scrapes, cuts, abrasions, burns, and a whole heap of abuse every day.
