The History of Laser Eye Surgery

These days, laser eye surgery is the most common voluntary medical procedure carried out across the world, but are you clued up on how it first began?

According to one legend, it all started when a little boy fell and broke his glasses, causing a small piece of glass to cut across his cornea. When the boy’s eye healed, his doctor realised that his vision had improved!

The truth, however, is that many pioneers have played their part in developing the laser eye treatments we use today. Find out more about how it developed by exploring our infographic below.
