Ronald Krueger, MD:

"Further, evidence demonstrates that the
brain does seem to adjust over time, even if
it does take a year or two," Dr Krueger said."

So there is a possibility that our brains will adapt even after three, or four, or ten years! :lol:

"Technologies such as wavefront-driven or corneal topography-based treatments are being developed to minimize the spherical aberration created by surgeons."

Arthur B. Epstein, O.D.:

?While Dr. Mathers undoubtedly has seen patients lose eyes, many of us in the contact lens community have spent untold hours trying to help patients who have had their lives literally destroyed by LASIK.?

That last quote is from Arthur B. Epstein, O.D. Bravo!

More from that link:

Quote:
Despite this, ?both LASIK and contact lenses are safe, but the statements in this letter are misleading,? says optometrist Glenda Secor, chair of the Cornea and Contact Lens Section of the American Academy of Optometry. In particular, ?there are issues with LASIK other than just vision loss. There are adverse effects with glare, haloes and dryness. ? It?s misleading the way [Dr. Mathers] has compared the two.?

Stephen Slade, MD:

"The debate about the appropriate thickness of a LASIK flap has much to do with our growing fear about causing postoperative ectasia. We are all aware that there is a limit to how much corneal tissue can be removed without the risk of producing a negative postoperative response. Concerns about ectasia have motivated many of us to perform PRK or Epi-LASIK."

Easy Answer:
Removing ANY corneal tissue with a laser will produce a negative postoperative response in terms of damage to corneal nerves, a thinned, weakened cornea, and induced aberrations. The wound healing process in corneal tissue is never complete after LASIK . A LASIK flap will never heal, and surface treatments have associated risks of development of haze during healing and recurrent corneal erosions.

Lasers and healthy eyes don't mix. We hope you find something new to do that doesn't harm healthy eyes, Dr. Stephen Slade.

You and your colleagues are creating an ectasia epidemic.

?One of the reasons we stopped doing LASIK is because we did not want to produce more complications.?

"Does it make sense to analyze the optical wavefront with 18 terms, while the corneal surface, which produced 100% of the surgically-induced changes in that wavefront, with only 2 terms?"

Marguerite McDonald, M.D:

"To help prevent post-op complications, Marguerite McDonald, M.D., Lynbrook, N.Y. and clinical professor of ophthalmology, Tulane University, New Orleans, said patients should be told that they need to protect their eyes from ultraviolet light/wind, ?or any other form of irritation for at least two years and perhaps longer.?

Perry S. Binder, MD

Quote:
Practically speaking, a flap that measures 160 microns at the centre can be as thick as 230 to 240 microns at its margin, which means the microkeratome has cut through more lamellae peripherally and caused greater biomechanical weakening of the cornea.?

Richard Duffey, MD:

"As for the preferred residual bed thickness with LASIK, two-thirds of respondents still feel that 250 ?m is appropriate. ?But, the truth is no one knows,? says Dr. Duffey."
