Laser Surgery: It doesn't help improve vision as you get older
About the author: 

Laser eye surgery has become so commonplace that it's available on almost every high street

Laser eye surgery has become so commonplace that it's available on almost every high street. But those who hope the procedure will improve their vision if it's deteriorated with age will be disappointed.

A new study reveals that laser treatment cannot reverse age-related macular degeneration (AMD), a common problem that affects many over the age of 50.

It was tested on 1,000 participants who were in the early stages of AMD. Each participant had one eye treated by lasers, and the other was untreated, yet vision loss was similar in both eyes after five years.
