LASIK

This is the tried and tested procedure that has been around for a really long now. It’s almost 30 years old and has stood the test of time. Conventional LASIK entails lifting a corneal flap, with a blade or microkeratome, and treating the cornea with laser light, refashioning its shape to ensure the proper focus of light rays on the retina. On the flip side, it has issues like dry eye, flap complications, and sometimes the number returns. In a few cases, the entire number may not get corrected due to limitations with the parameters of the machine.

Man On The Rise Ajinkya Rahane

Oprah Winfrey once said, “Passion is energy.

Prepare for the Worst, Hope for the Best

AS ANY TRUE FLORIDIAN WILL TELL YOU, June marks the beginning of the hurricane season. And while Floridians pride themselves on their unflappable nature when it comes to crisis prep, it would be reckless to think a hurricane couldn’t bring this state to its knees.

And unlike the cone of certainty, one thing is certain: Hurricanes can, and have historically, taken a toll on the agriculture sector. The damage can be catastrophic.
