Mr.Boffin, Wavefront LASIK please

 

We came across the following news item on LASIK and safety of laser vision correction.

 

 

 

WASHINGTON – A research team, including an Indian-origin boffin, has found that laser eye surgery that corrects vision does not lead to later problems with the cornea – at least not after nine years.

 

 

 

We know what is laser vision correction. What in the world is a boffin? For this we had to turn too our friendly source of knowledge – wikipedia- “in the slang of the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, India and South Africa, boffins are scientists, medical doctors, engineers, and other people engaged in technical or scientific research.

 

So, here’s to our own Beverly Hills LASIK Boffin: cheers!
