The Dangers of LASIK Surgery: Why You Want to Avoid This Like The Plague

If you've considered Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis -- better known as LASIK surgery -- to correct your vision, I've come across a couple of Web sites (listed below) that ought to make you think long and hard about considering it.

As you may know, the LASIK procedure permanently changes the shape of the cornea, the clear covering of the front of the eye, using an excimer laser. A knife, called a microkeratome, is used to cut a flap in the cornea which is folded back to reveal the stroma (the middlesection of the cornea). Then, pulses from a computer-controlled laser vaporize a portion of the stroma and the flap is replaced.

In fact, one of the sites I discovered -- Surgical Eyes.org -- is devoted to focusing attention on the unique problems faced by patients who undergo unsuccessful refractive surgery.

If you want to protect your vision and optimize your health in the long run, consider these great tips I discussed in an article I posted last year:

However, most importantly later this year I will be offering a course from a company that will help restore your vision WITHOUT glasses. So please, please wait until you can try this course. I just got off a flight from LA where I spent the weekend and had a three day consultation which should completely reverse the presbyopia (far sightedness)I was developing.

The first course we will have will be for presbyopia and then we will offer one for myopia. In the meantime, do NOT have LASIK surgery. Without any question, it is one of the worst things you can do to your eyes as this procedure in no way shape or form treats the cause of the problem and is only a temporary fix that will ultimately make your vision worse and, as the links below show, has potential to result in serious damage to your eyes.
