Eye laser operation
I have been wearing spectacles for the last 25 years. My glasses have become thicker over time. Some friends are advising me to consider laser therapy. What are the advantages and disadvantages? Seeing that I have been wearing specs for such a long time, am I still a good candidate? I am living in the Eastern Cape. \Where can I find the best doctor and advice on this? I am scrared and in need of honest advice.
Thank You.

Thank you for visiting

I recommend that you make an appointment with an opthalmologist, in order to discuss your concerns and to evaluate if you are a good candidate for laser treatment. It is a very safe and scientifically proven operation that can change your life dramatically.

Kind regards
