I’ve had many patients get LASIK simply because their jobs made it difficult for them to wear contact lenses or glasses.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) December 16, 2012
Recently Atlanta LASIK eye surgeon, Dr. Ashraf of the Atlanta Vision Institute, announced qualities of a good LASIK candidate on his website. Based on specific job descriptions, the average good candidate for LASIK surgery performs one of the following tasks on a regular basis: excessive reading, working on the computer, exercising, physical labor and working in dry environments.
“Many of my LASIK patients have been police officers, flight attendants, fire fighters and even lawyers,” states Dr. Ashraf. “With these types of jobs, the need for clear vision and minimal distractions becomes heightened. That means it’s better to be able to see clearly naturally without having to worry about glasses falling off and breaking or contact lenses drying out. This is where LASIK becomes the most efficient solution.”
On his website, Dr. Ashraf describes how jobs that require excessive reading and computer work can lead to eye strain. LASIK reduces the need to squint and strain to see fine print clearly. In addition, jobs that take place in dry environments can lead to more frequent use of eye drops to keep contact lenses moist.
“I’ve had many patients get LASIK simply because their jobs made it difficult for them to wear contact lenses or glasses. LASIK gives people in these situations freedom,” states Dr. Ashraf.
LASIK surgery is a quick procedure that involves correcting one’s vision by reshaping the cornea in the eye through the use of an advanced laser. The Atlanta Vision Institute houses the most advanced technology for LASIK and is currently the only center in all of Georgia to carry the fifth-generation iFS™ Advanced Femtosecond Laser for the IntraLase procedure, which is one of the most advanced methods of LASIK surgery.
After attending some of the most prestigious institutions in the world, such as Johns Hopkins, Dr. Ashraf founded the Atlanta Vision Institute and the Atlanta Vision Clinic in Dubai and since then has performed over 40,000 LASIK surgeries.
