Which is safer: contact lenses or laser eye surgery?
People who wear contact lenses often do not realize that there are risks involved. However, research has shown that contact lens wearers have a chance of about 1 in 1000 of damage to the eye from infections. In addition, damage can be caused by scars, scratches or the formation of new blood vessels in the eye.
The risk of eye damage from contact lenses is more than 10 times greater than with an incorrectly performed laser eye treatment.
