Having laser eye surgery helps other people see better!

How can having laser eye surgery help other people in developing countries see better? Simple, we donate your old glasses to charities that recycle them to the millions in need of simple vision correction around the world.

I always encourage my laser patients to donate their old glasses after surgery, which we send to SightSavers and Vision Aid Overseas, both of whom recycle the glasses to people who need them.

 This lovely lady brought in 3 pairs of her old glasses when she had LASIK for a -8.5 correction. On day 1 post op her vision had improved to better than 20:20. Someone else can now use the glasses.
