The Sydney Morning Herald recently interviewed A/Prof Michael Lawless as part of a special feature issue about laser eye surgery. In the article ‘Creating vision for clearer, brighter future’, A/Prof Lawless tackles some common questions about vision correction using laser surgery, including the latest technique SMILE®, while also highlighting that the experience of the surgeon in knowing when to not recommend surgery is critical.
Below is an excerpt from the article:
‘Laser eye surgery can significantly improve eyesight in suitable candidates and offers other life-changing benefits. As well as allowing patients to discard their glasses or contact lenses (or reduce dependence on them), the surgery has been shown to boost self-confidence and enhance performance in areas where compromised eyesight may be holding a person back.’
