    LASIK, Lumify, & Lash Growth Serums: What You Should Know About Eye Health

    We’re talking all things eyes on today’s episode with Dr. Rany Woo, a cataract and refractive eye surgeon who recently did Sara’s life-changing EVO ICL procedure. We ask Dr. Rany how our eyes change as we age, the differences between all the refractive eye surgeries (LASIK vs. PRK vs. Smile), and the reason you shouldn’t be using those red eye-reducing eye drops as much as you are. She also shares the five things she would never do as an ophthalmologist, from DIY fireworks to using eyelash growth serums.
