Lasik laser eye surgery "the real deal"

Lasik laser eye surgery "the real deal"

A patient who recently benefitted from laser eye surgery has revealed how the operation was a successful one and has improved her quality of life.

Jennifer LaCrosse, from Farmington, New York, underwent the procedure under the watchful eye of refractive surgeon Dr Sungjun John Hwang after her nearsightedness had affected her everyday life to the extent where she could barely see more than a foot in front of her, MPNNow.com reported.

She explained how she was nervous about having the operation but was glad she did, as the vision improvement following the procedure was almost instantaneous.

Upon waking up after the procedure, she told the website how she could see the clock across the room with "crystal clear" clarity - something she had not been able to do for years.

Last month, the Daily Mail reported how two-year-old Zosia Knight faces the prospect of a lifetime of blindness after her local NHS Trust refused to fund laser surgery which would save her vision.
