Lasik Forum and Resources

Welcome to LasikScam.com where you will find documentation of the history of the refractive surgery industry, from the cover-ups and conflicts of interest to the kickbacks, and also current medical studies documenting continued damage to the visual health of patients by the refractive surgery industry and its supporters.

We do not endorse refractive surgery because there is abundant evidence in the current medical literature that corneal refractive surgery compromises the health and visual quality of every virgin (un-operated) eye. Therefore corneal refractive surgery in its present form is malpractice.

Our goal is to present a body of evidence sufficient to educate patients about consequences of laser eye surgery before they embark on this elective, irreversible, and medically unnecessary procedure. Only when patients are completely informed, can they provide informed consent for refractive surgery. More than 5 million people in the United States have been denied informed consent for corneal refractive surgery due to poor accountability and missing data in clinical trials. Patients deserve complete and accurate clinical trials data before they can consent to a procedure that is not clearly designated 'off label' or 'experimental' by the FDA. We'll show how and when the FDA let us down in the approval processes, and name individuals who were responsible for these lapses.

We have a patient forum where damaged patients may seek help and advice from other patients, and discuss legal strategies and outlets for filing complaints about refractive surgery and refractive surgeons. We will share our bad experiences with refractive surgeons and name them by name so that other patients may be forewarned.

Our initiatives include:
  • Exposing the scientific and ethical lapses that led to approval of LASIK, and the hoax known as "Wavefront" LASIK.
  • Increasing public awareness of refractive surgery complications and poor refractive surgery outcomes.
  • Providing plaintiff's attorneys with guides to debunking "expert witnesses" who testify on behalf of refractive surgeons in medical malpractice lawsuits.
  • Publication of legal complaints filed against "expert witnesses" who testify on behalf of refractive surgeons in medical malpractice lawsuits.
  • Publication of excerpts of key peer-reviewed studies that reveal short and long-term complications of refractive surgery.
  • Public campaigns targeted at groups and individuals responsible for lowering the standards for refractive surgery.
  • Helping patients understand the root cause of their post-refractive visual disturbances.
