Laser blended vision, is a sophisticated laser eye treatment which rectifies short-sightedness (myopia) in one eye and long-sightedness (hyperopia) in the other eye.

But what few people tell you is just how annoying contact lenses can be. So what happens if you don't change your contact lenses enough? Well, nothing good,...

In reality, the hard-to-detect bifocal contact lenses are receiving mixed reviews from the specialists who work with them.
