LONDON, December 5 /PRNewswire/ -- A recent survey has revealed some of the more bizarre behavior of glasses wearers get - including desperately flagging down a passing bus only to realize it's actually a fire engine...
Optimax, a laser eye treatment company, conducted a national survey and found out that Britons make a right spec-tacle of themselves if they've lost their glasses, haven't had an eye test for a while or haven't got their contact lenses in.
It's not just beer goggles that might lead you to a 'what was I thinking' moment - 35% of 16 - 34 year olds have admitted kissing someone they normally wouldn't find attractive due to poor vision.
The survey, which questioned 2000 people, certainly opens eyes to the trouble for the visually impaired. Here are Optimax's top five favorite funnies from the survey:
- Brushed teeth with hemorrhoid cream instead of toothpaste
- Asked a shop mannequin for advice
- Cheered the wrong football team
- Nearly grabbed the wrong "wife" in the swimming pool
- Walked off with someone else's trolley at the supermarket
The survey also revealed that 58% of people are too frightened to undergo laser eye surgery and 41% simply think they can't afford it. Optimax offers Intralase LASIK, the a 100% blade-free laser eye procedure at unbeatable prices. Compared to the price of a lifetime of glasses or lenses, laser eye treatment is a far better investment. On average women could spend nearly GBP30,000 in a lifetime on glasses or contacts and men could spend nearly GBP15,000 as well. All that money saved on glasses and contacts lenses could be spent on a serious shopping spree every year, an annual holiday or with the average amount of money women spending on shoes at GBP30,000, it's a lifetime of guilt-free shoe shopping!
Russell Ambrose, founder and chief executive of Optimax comments: "Intralase LASIK is the latest, state of the art technology for all suitable prescriptions to be treated through a bladeless procedure. It helps eliminate complications such as infections and inflammations which can occur when the flap is created by a manual blade."
"This 'no blade' treatment produces a flap that is much more precise, safer and thinner. The results speak for themselves - more patients attain 20:20 vision or even better than any other eye treatment."
