He was working in an oil ship that sails on the northern sea. He was mostly working at the engine room of the ship which is too hot. His job requiring him to go out to the deck which is too cold , check the certain systems and going back in the engine room.And all this process has to-be done in seconds.

"My job is quite serious. If I don't do it properly, there might be some risks. And since we are sailing in the Northern Sea, the conditions are harsh and risks has to-be minimum. As I run to deck from engine room, which is somewhere quite hot to quite cold, my eyeglasses gets mist all over, which decreases my vision. While I run, I have to clean them up properly. I tried several solutions, such as washing my glasses with anti-freezer liquids, but it was not a good option, that's why I want to have laser eye surgery. After Lasik surgery, what I expect is, a safer work environment, for both myself and the ship that I work".

Each patient is unique, each of them do have different expectations from the result of the surgery. Also, their motivations for having a surgery varies. However, it is possible to group the patients through their main motivations. One of them as could also be seen from the next case, is the JOB. Eye glasses or contact lenses may become a problem for people who earns their life with a job that does not tolerate them to have a good vision with glasses.

That's why we ask about the job of the patient when they first arrive to the clinic for their eyes-check-up to see, whether if they are suitable for laser-eye surgery or not.

"I am working in a Rehabilitation center in Sweden" say another patient. "I work with people who has drug addictions", he later continues to talk about the risks of his job. How he sometimes to have to-be in action by using his body, and how eye glasses were dangerous for him during this trouble times.

"I decided to get Lasik, because two times I broke my glasses while dealing with the patients. Also, several times I got so close to-be injured. Also, I do not want to mention about how the wires of my glasses did have weird shapes."

The risk factor of the glasses for a possible injury is always there, if the person is doing any active work. It is the same case for people who like to do sports. Even having glasses on, while running could be a reason for injury.

Dr. Bas also tells about several stories about how he saved eyes several times after the glasses broke on the face of the patients. As he remembers the cases, example list gets longer and longer...A patient after a car accident, a child who fell down from his bicycle, a young men involved in a fight and got a punch on the face...

The risk of carrying glasses in daily life, the potential risks that caused by glasses during work...These are some of the factors that leads patients to think about a final solution, which is laser-eye surgery. Therefore, Lasik is not a treatment that is only preferred by people who wants a better look from the outside.
