Why is LASIK so popular? Because there is a relative lack of pain afterward and good vision is usually achieved by the very next day. More than 17 million people worldwide have had LASIK or other laser refractive surgery. The number of laser vision correction procedures performed annually in the United States has remained relatively unchanged: approximately 1.3 million procedures were performed each year in 2004, 2005 and 2006, and it was estimated that another 1.3 million would be performed in 2007 (TLC Vision Corp. 2006 Annual Report).
