Is lasik eye surgery safe?

Amost always: Nothing is 100% safe. Not even driving a car or crossing a street. Lasik is one of the safest procedures around but it's unrealistic to think in absolute terms of "safe" vs "unsafe".

Cornea surgery (Tip)

Be aware that there are specialists in all areas these days. This applies to rehabilitation from surgery or injuries as well.
