Why Lasik Eye Surgery is Popular with Professionals in Dubai

CEOs and high-level executives often get LASIK eye surgery to improve their vision and eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses

DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES – EQS Newswire – 28 March 2023 – Business professionals in Dubai are increasingly turning to LASIK eye surgery to improve their vision and enhance their productivity in the workplace.

CEOs and high-level executives often get LASIK eye surgery to improve their vision and eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses. The reasons are similar to those for other business professionals, including improved productivity, confidence, and overall quality of life.

Who wants to worry about glasses creating glare during a televised conference, interfering with their workout, or suffering with contact lenses during a long business flight?

Here are a few examples of influential executives who do not wear glasses in public, either for public image or personal reasons.

  • Elon Musk – CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, Inc.
  • Mark Zuckerberg – CEO of Meta
  • Jeff Bezos – Founder and former CEO of Amazon

LASIK, or Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis, is a safe and non-invasive surgical procedure that corrects vision problems, such as near-sightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Professionals traveling and working in the United Arab Emirates have a solution for their vision goals.

Dr. Abdullah Naqi, Ophthalmologist and Executive Director of North American Lasik & Eye Centre (https://NorthAmericanLasik.com), located in Dubai, commented, “For professionals looking to improve their vision and enhance their careers, LASIK can be a life-changing option.” He later added, “With LASIK eye surgery, individuals can achieve a clearer, more comfortable vision, which can lead to increased productivity and confidence in both their professional and personal lives.”

According to the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, over 700,000 LASIK procedures are performed each year in the United States. This number indicates LASIK remains a popular and safe laser vision correction option for those seeking to improve their vision and life.

Many business professionals are also attracted to LASIK because of its safety and reliability.  The procedure is minimally invasive and typically only takes about 15 minutes per eye, with most patients experiencing little to no discomfort during or after the procedure. Patients can return to work and resume their normal activities within a few days, with most experiencing significant improvements in their vision within hours of the procedure.

About the Clinic:
The North American Lasik & Eye Surgery Center team of surgeons have over 20 years of experience and performed over 16,000 eye surgeries. Their commitment to all their patients is that they receive treatment in terms of quality, trustworthiness, and credibility.

WELLINGTON, FL / ACCESSWIRE / March 28, 2023 / U.S. Polo Assn., the official brand of the United States Polo Association (USPA), is the Official Apparel Sponsor for the USA Team in the biggest rivalry in the sport of polo, the Westchester Cup.

New Digital Badge Program Elevates Cority Software Users as Platform Experts

Online learning tool boosts employee engagement, enables sharable verification of skills

TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / March 28, 2023 / Leading global enterprise EHS (Environmental Health & Safety) software provider Cority announced today the launch of a Digital Badge Program to enable Cority users to celebrate training accomplishments and visually demonstrate their proficiency with Cority’s best-in-class platform. As adoption of Cority’s products grows across a spectrum of industries worldwide, the new program allows users to earn virtual badges, publicly share their successes, and immediately validate their expertise. Companies in turn gain assurance that employees are current with core competencies that impact daily operations, boost productivity, and increase profitability.

Cority logo

The Digital Badge Program is the latest employee-centric approach to EHS training from Cority Academy, which began in January 2022. The online learning platform, which employs gamification to engage employees with dynamic modules and quizzes, teaches Cority customers how to effectively use, adopt, and optimize the broad spectrum of EHS, Sustainability, and Quality software solutions that Cority offers.

Online learning and digital badging are powerful tools for employee engagement and professional development. A recent study from Research.com found that 90 percent of poll respondents preferred online learning to traditional learning methods, finding it more conducive to learning on the job.

“Cority is committed to providing users with unparalleled online learning tools that elevate their experience and benefit their organizations,” said Amanda Smith, Cority’s vice president of solutions marketing and enablement. “We partner with customers to empower people to make a difference and ensure employees are set up for success by creating customized programs that grow and flex with the unique and ever-evolving needs of the organization.”

Seventeen badges, awarded for proficiency in topic areas ranging from individual clouds, such as Safety or Environmental, to platform-centric tools such as Business Rules, are available today, and more are being planned. Users earn badges when they complete any of Cority’s curated learning paths and achieve a minimum score of 80.

Digital badges provide their earners with the ability to showcase their credentials with others virtually – on social media, as a direct link with potential employers, and as an addition to an email signature.

Each digital badge has a unique URL that includes metadata verifying the badge issuer and recipient, as well as the criteria for earning the badge. This allows current and prospective employers to validate a Cority digital badge holder’s competencies and skills with a single click.

Cority’s consistent recognition as a leader in Verdantix’s benchmark Green Quadrant for EHS Software report over the past five years has led many organizations to increasingly view its platform as an industry standard and seek employees trained to leverage its solutions.

“Experience with the software is in high demand, creating a valuable opportunity for our users,” added Smith. “Not only can they become internal experts and resources for existing teams, but they can also publicly showcase their sought-after skills.”

Standing out in today’s competitive market is critical, and according to a study by LinkedIn, profiles with certifications and badges are viewed six times more often than the average profile.

The Digital Badge Program’s pilot launched on March 27. The program is set to be available to all Cority customers by April 10.
