I have decentered ablations in both eyes (even admitted finally by surgeon who did LASIK on me). When I told LASIK surgeon Dr. George Thorne about this he said, it didn't look like they weren't centered (he wasn't even checking with a topographer so that he could determine decentration)...then he said:

"Well, your eyes were straight when you were young, right?, they'll go back that way!"

The reason that ocular irritation is not a prominent symptom during the first year has to do with the loss of corneal sensitivity that occurs following LASIK.

Confocal Microscopy Comparison of IntraLase Femtosecond Laser and Moria M2 Microkeratome in LASIK

Journal of Refractive Surgery Vol. 23 No. 2 February 2007
Jaime Javaloy, MD, PhD; Mar?a T. Vidal, MD, PhD; Ayman M. Abdelrahman, MD, MSc; Alberto Artola, MD, PhD; Jorge L. Ali?, MD, PhD


Quote:
The final outcomes in LASIK, the most common refractive surgical procedure worldwide, are influenced by many variables including the microkeratome, which generates a significant percentage of complications and affects the quality of vision due to the induction of corneal aberrations.

February 2, 2006 Thursday

ACC-NO: A20060203C-FF63-GNW

Excerpt:

In the days and weeks following the surgery, Hinman said, she had increased vision problems and returned to Dello Russo's office several times to voice her concerns. Hinman testified that she saw strange glows from lights, starbursts around exposed bulbs and distorted letters when she tried to read.

Each time, she testified, Dello Russo told her she was just healing slowly.

Two months after the surgery, Hinman said she became very upset in Dello Russo's office and the doctor prescribed Valium for her.

Hinman testified that Dello Russo handed the prescription to an assistant and said, "Here, this will fix all her problems. Now get this woman out of my sight."

It's time to move away from corneal refractive surgery!

There will never be a way to reach a compromise between an optical zone large and smooth enough to prevent induced corneal aberrations, and a cornea thick enough to avoid increased risk of ectasia.

The larger the optical zone and the larger the correction the more tissue removed - this means deeper nerve damage with increased risk of dry eye and an increased risk of ectasia with larger correction and optical zone size.

Yes, and OMIC also has something called the Hammer clause, which we have only used once. This clause allows us to encourage someone to settle a lawsuit, or else they will be liable for the damages if they refuse to settle and lose.
