FUN WITH LASERS: Interviews with Lasik and PRK Patients

By Seana Sperling I began hearing about Lasik in late 1999. I was at a party and two women were wearing dark glasses.

These Watch groups are viewed as a necessary and positive thing and many people I have spoken to on this subject agree. However, when I asked … Continue reading »
