Public Health Crisis
Every LASIK should be running 24x7 until every corrective procedure that should be done has been done. The marginal cost for the "other" 22 hours per day of operation are less than the billing costs. The billions in eyeglass and optometrist and contact lense and such saved make this a public health priority orders of magnitude more serious than fast food workers washing thier hands but. But what? We'd destroy several "vital" industries that depend on extending human misery? Bausch & Loam will miss their earnings? We MANDATE measles and subsidize the vaccination process. That makes sense so clear that it is barely questioned anymore. Where is the moral or economic distinction here?
