Laser Eye Surgery for Babies

In a recent study, it was found that premature babies have a high risk of developing vision problems. This trend has led some ophthalmologists to wonder if laser eye surgery could be performed safely on babies. Currently, laser eye procedures are rarely performed on people with eyes that are not fully matured because of the risks that the eyes would grow and reverse corrections that may have been made in the eye tissues. If premature babies could safely and effectively undergo a laser eye surgery procedure, however, the lives of many preemies could be enhanced.
