Dr. William Trattler asks that patients lobby against contact lenses
"LASIK question" Posted by William B. Trattler, MD
Excerpt: "My last comment is to inform some of the LASIK bashers that one of the alternatives to LASIK - contact lenses - can also be a serious health risk to the eye. As a cornea specialist, I take care of contact lens-associated corneal infections on a daily basis. Many patients in the United States go blind every day from the use of contact lenses (especially when patients sleep in them). So please also lobby against the use of contact lenses if you want to reduce the risk of eye injury in the U.S.".
