Catalog Number 8065490084
Device Problem Error message given
Event Date 01/09/2006
Event Type Injury
Event Description
A system operator reports that during lasik surgery, the laser stopped firing at 88. 8% completion and could not be completed within the same session. Patient records provided did not include the pre-operative exam nor bcva measurements and the patient was deployed to iraq prior to the one-month post-operative exam.

Manufacturer Narrative
The field service engineer was dispatched to the site to evaluate the system. He confirmed, but could not duplicate the reported issue. He adjusted the thyratron reservoir voltage , optimized the thyratron and conducted testing with over 60,000 shots fired without a mis-fire, pre-fire or uncommanded firing of the laser. System performed within specification at the time of verification. No conclusion can be made.
