LASIK Complications and the Internet: Is the Public being Mislead?

Daragh Kennedy Fahey and Julius Weinberg
J Med Internet Res. 2003 Jan?Mar; 5(1): e2.


This study assessed the quality of information on the Internet on LASIK complications and found it to be poor. Our findings support recent work in the College of Optometry in Southern California [22], which looked at 96 Web sites containing LASIK information. They rated 26% of sites as "markedly informative," 28% were rated "moderately informative," and 46% were rated as "minimally informative." The poor quality of the information represents a negligent omission as the public are being misled into believing that LASIK is without risk.
