Jack Holladay, MD:
As you may or may not know, people with very large pupils are generally bad candidates for LASIK and other refractive procedures. As a result, accurate measurement of a patient?s pupils (pupillometry) as a part of the evaluation for refractive surgery is essential. With reports of halos and glare following refractive surgery on many of the prime time news shows, pupillometry has become one of the preoperative tests expected by the patient. It is very clear from the published and anecdotal reports of nighttime glare and halos that large pupils are the predominant factor resulting in these problems.


Richard L. Lindstrom, M.D.:
During a panel discussion on refractive surgery complications, Richard L. Lindstrom, M.D., adjunct professor emeritus, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, said he performs surgery on any pupil size.

If Dr. Holladay is correct (he is), then Lindstrom is placing patients at risk. That begs the question, why would surgeons who place patients at risk be "certified" as "better" than other surgeons?

If Glenn Hagele refers a patient with large pupils to Lindstrom, then he is to blame IN MY OPINION if the patient suffers from debilitating visual impairment.
