The popularity of laser eye surgery is continuing to grow as people realise the permanent vision benefits the procedure can provide, one source has stated.
Tony Veverka, chief executive at Ultralase, said the practice was once seen as "futuristic" but now millions of people around the globe are benefitting from it.
"As more and more people experience the results and convenience of laser eye surgery, the popularity of the treatment continues to grow. During the past 20 years we've conducted over 225,000 treatments and this number is still on the increase," he added.
The expert noted that the speed of the procedure and the constantly falling cost means that the attractiveness of the operation will only rise in the years ahead.
Recently, laser eye surgery patient Jennifer LaCrosse, from Farmington, New York, told MPNNow.com that the operation is one of the best things she has ever done, as it provided her with perfect vision within minutes.
