Why do eye surgeons continue to wear glasses?
The Sunday Times ran an article asking eye surgeons why they choose to wear glasses and not contact lenses.
The answer given was that there was always a risk of infection with contact lenses. And they didn't want to have that risk.
Well perhaps they should have simply asked the eye surgeons why wear glasses when they are recommending all sort sof alternatives, contact lenses are obviously not one of them, but what about Lasik?
I always find it strange to see all these eye surgeons telling patients to stop wearing glasses, go for Lasik, operate on them all this while wearing traditional frame glasses themselves!
Some parallels with a obese and fat doctor teaching a patient how to lose weight. I would find it strange. Wouldn't you?
I think doctors should practise what they preach!
