Contact lens users will be interested to hear that laser eye surgery has reached a historical milestone.
This year Ultralase – the first UK Company providing laser eye surgery to customers – is celebrating its 20th anniversary.
During the time it has offered the service the company has carried out more than 225,000 of the vision correction procedures.
Many celebrities who formerly had to wear glasses or contact lenses, such as Sir Steve Redgrave, Jonathan Edwards and Paul Collingwood, have benefitted from the treatment.
Ultralase was also the first UK company providing this service to have the results of its treatment verified.
"Knowing the difference it can make to each and every contact lens and glasses wearer is what drives us to ensure that we're providing the best possible solution and high level of care to all," Tony Veverka, chief executive at Ultralase, said.
In addition, a patient who recently had laser eye surgery has spoken out on the benefits of the procedure. James Duke told WNCFTV.com that five minutes after having the treatment in Alabama he could see clearly.
