In this infographic, we show you just how prevalent laser vision correction is among the ones actually performing the surgery. We break down the demographic of ophthalmologists who perform refractive (LASIK) eye surgeries to show you the results of a study of nearly 300 LASIK surgeons. How many of them have been evaluated for laser vision correction surgery and how many actually underwent the procedure? We compare these statistics with the data for the general public in the United States to show how LASIK surgeons compare to their patients.
