Laser eye surgery can improve quality of life

People who rely on glasses or contact lenses can see significant improvements to their quality of life if they opt for laser eye treatment.

Stephen Hannan, professional services manager at, said the procedure give s people the scope for much more freedom.

He explained that simple things such as seeing their children while they are splashing about in the swimming pool or defining the time on an alarm clock when they wake up were often undervalued.

Exercise becomes much easier without the use of spectacles and laser eye surgery is much more practical than contact lenses, said Mr Hannan.

"Many patients will benefit in their profession. We have treated doctors and dentists, solicitors and sportsmen, teachers, and professional drivers to name but a few," he added.

According to BBC Health, laser eye surgery is now a common procedure in the UK, with many patients having both eyes operated on on the same day.
