Patient highlights benefit of laser eye surgery

A patient who recently underwent laser eye surgery has spoken of how the procedure has made many positive changes to his everyday life.

James Duke, who had the operation at Montgomery Lasik & Eye Care Center in Alabama, told WNCFTV.com that before the procedure he could barely see, even when using vision correction such as glasses.

He noted that the operation was something of a last resort as he sought to regain his vision, but was amazed at how immediate the benefits were.

"It was unbelievable how much of an improvement it was with it, the sign behind you for instance I couldn't even see without corrected lenses yet I could see crystal clear five minutes after the surgery," Mr Duke explained.

Earlier this week, Dr Martin Burger, who recently opened the Vision One Lasik Center in Chicago, said that many forms of eye conditions can be treated through Lasik laser eye surgery.
