From the Publisher:

Beyond Glasses! was written by Franette Armstrong, a formerly nearsighted patient whoseownvision was permanently corrected by laser in 1994. In writing the book Ms.Armstrong interviewed over two dozen North America's leading researchophthalmologists-those who developed and pioneered the current and comingprocedures-reviewed the world's clinical research data, and followed thecases of several dozen patients.

The result is a plain-English look at all the vision-correction alternativesavailable today or in the foreseeable future. Beyond Glasses! thoroughly comparies the laser procedures with all other alternatives, and describes treatments currently in clinical trials as well as lists locations of clinical trials. This book will help consumers who are considering one of the new vision correction procedures to understand how treatments work, where to get them done safely, and the costs, recovery issues, and likelihood of various side effects and complications.
