Safe Person Glaucoma Lasik Vision Correction
No difference: The risk is the same for each. ...Read more
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".
