I thought this was interesting:

Quote:
Rebecca Petris, who co-established LaserMyEye, Apollo Beach, Fla., countered that while she agrees that post-op depression is not due solely to poor results, but it is a combination of everything that ensues including poor visual results and bad experiences in trying to fix the problem, to a name a couple of post-op experiences for the unsatisfied LASIK patient.


I noticed that they failed to mention that the chairman of the FDA panel, a LASIK surgeon, wears glasses and stated that she wouldn't tolerate any risk to her own eyes.

From the EyeWorld article (in typical EyeWorld LASIK propoganda delivery)

Quote:
Observers who frequently attend FDA proceedings regarded the session as unusual in its emotional character.


If you destroy patient's eyes with no plan B fix and lie to them to top it all off, patient's will have something to say about it.

What surprised me was the arrogance of the LASIK surgeons who presented at the FDA hearing and some who sat on the FDA panel. Were they in the same room with Gerry Dorrian who presented a compelling account of his son Collin who had a bright future, but committed suicide due to his LASIK complications that had no plan B fix? Even if there was only one patient who committed suicide from a totally unnecessary procedure (and there have been others), that alone should have made any physician with a conscience evaluate what is being done.

Instead, it appeared that there was a group of egomaniac LASIK physicians attending the FDA hearing who once again stuck their head in the sand and played the spin game that they think they play so well in selling LASIK.

One surgeon, a well known expert witness against patients with large pupils, actually appeared to be smirking during damaged patients' testimonies. Two LASIK surgeon speakers came across as completely narcissistic, IMO. Two surgeons who were expert witnesses against me in my large pupil lawsuit against my surgeon stared scornfully at me. During the break, the fake patient advocate/lasik industry hitman approached me -- I turned and walked toward security. It seemed to me that ASCRS/AAO had been orchestrating their performance for months. The whole thing was creepy -- like a battle between good and evil.

The FDA Commission speaking last year:

http://www.devicelink.com/mddi/archive/07/06/002.html

Quote:
Although his agency demonstrates few signs of it, FDA commissioner Andrew von Eschenbach again preached his commitment to openness and transparency. He made his comments on the Diane Rehm Show on National Public Radio on April 16. He agreed with Rehm that ?there seems to have been a breach of trust? in the public?s faith in FDA. The commissioner assured the listening audience that ?first and foremost? they ?need to know that there is only one purpose for FDA. That?s to serve [people], not to serve politicians, not to serve industries, not to serve anyone else other than them.

By the way, for the benefit of those who weren't there, Kerry Solomon didn't even stick around long enough to take questions from the panel about the .013% satisfaction survey.

If you're trying to hide something, I guess it's better not to put yourself in the position of having to answer questions in front of the media about your study.
