Does Anyone Want to Manage Refractice Surgery?

on July 12th, 2006 | Filed under Optoblog

Well, another multi-million dollar settlement against a LASIK surgeon. This time it’s against an awarded TLC ophthalmologist.

TLC isn’t one of those Sunday comic laser centers. And I don’t think an eye doctor managing a pre-op LASIK patient would just miss a keratoconus problem since computer-assisted analyzation of cornea topographical maps helps catch almost all of those. And if a 9 page informed consent document, a video, and doctor counseling doesn’t count for anything, then maybe the only criteria is whether or not the individual likes their outcome.

Anyone for LASIK surgery?

    As with any surgery, there are risks and possible complications. Lasik may not give you perfect vision.
