LASIK: Neither Desire nor Fear
Submitted by Rick Cochran (not verified) on January 29, 2007 - 11:13pm.

Glenn Hagele is a well-known LASIK apologist. He pops up whenever somebody raises concerns about LASIK. I wonder who pays his salary so that he can offer free information.

I currently wear corrective lenses, but I don't desire LASIK because I already had it. I also don't fear it, because I have no intention of going near it again.

In the statistics cited by Glenn, who gets to decide what constitutes a "complication" or a "serious long-term problem" - LASIK surgeons or LASIK patients?

By which "medical standards" are these stats considered "wildly successful? Perhaps those for non-elective surgery?

Note the Google ads to the right. Somebody's trying to sell you something. They're going to fudge explanations to make their product look better. The only way you can really determine whether you are one of those for whom "LASIK is not for" is to stick your eyes under the beam.

Do you feel lucky today?

BTW, I don't believe that LASIK practitioners are evil villains. I'm sure they believe they are providing a great service to humankind, and they are disturbed when some of their patients inevitably incur "serious long-term problems".

Before I had LASIK, I read the complaints of others, but I concluded that they must have been "bad candidates". However, I was a perfect candidate and my corrected vision is currently much worse than it was before the surgery.

Caveat emptor.
