There were a whole bunch of new MDRs filed in the Maude database during December about breakdowns of Ladarvisions. They make interesting reading.

Go to http://www.accessdata.fda.gov/scripts/c ... search.cfm

Type in "ladarvision" and search.

I typed "CUSTOMCORNEA" into the search and got this one:

"Alcon customcornea & ladarvision 4000 wavefront lasik machines were used to preform enhancement surgery on left eye after original lasik in 2003. Enhancement surgery made eyesight worse; nearsighted again with multiple vision effect when looking at point of light. 2nd, 3rd, 4th opinions from other drs confirm irregularities in cornea from enhancement surgery and all of them say that the alcon customcornea wavefront measurement device and the ladarvision laser should not be used for enhancements because the software is not sophisticated enough and is too unstable."

Yeah right, wavefront enhancements can fix us all!!!

Event Date 10/27/2007

Quote:
A system operator reports the laser stopped tracking 90% into a procedure. The procedure was completed and the surgeon indicated he did not feel the patient was harmed or injured from this event. Add'l information provided indicates the patient is overcorrected (+1. 50 diopter) and is experiencing a 1-line decrease in bcva at 2 weeks post-op. Add'l information has been requested. This report is for the right eye.
