One More Reason to Get Rid of Those Contact Lenses?

According to a recent article on OSN (Ocular Sugical News) SuperSite, one surgeon supports having refractive surgery over wearing contact lenses to minimize the risk of eye infections. 

Dr. Minas T. Coroneo, M.D. quoted results from a study by Mathers et al stating that the risk of getting a bacterial eye infection from daily contact lens wear is 1 in 100 people.  In comparison, the refractive surgery infection rate shown in the study was 1 in 800.

Dr. Coroneo concluded, “When you look at it, over a lifetime, it’s safer to have refractive surgery than using contact lenses, since prevention is better than a cure.”
