In absolute terms, the profession that would have had laser surgery most would be Accountants.

In fact often patients who are desk-bound want to get out at the weekend and maximise their time off doing exciting things.

In the United States, many in the military that have had laser eye surgery particularly in the navy and air forces.

In relative terms however the group which has had the surgery most would be Ophthalmologists.

Eye surgeons are four times more likely to have had the surgery (pro rata) than Accountants.

This is because we see the results and know the safety profile.

You will find very few laser eye surgeons who have not had a family member treated.
