More than 12 million Americans have had Lasik eye surgery in the hope of throwing away their glasses. The procedure reshapes the cornea to restore good vision.
Most of the time, patients are satisfied. Sometimes the procedure creates a much bigger problem than wearing glasses. That's why a FDA panel is meeting in Washington to determine how often patients are not satisfied with Lasik surgery and what the potential problems are and whether there should be stricter guidelines. More information will be available as the FDA makes their findings available.
