Lasik Eye Surgery Message Board

Lasik Eye Surgery Board Index

[QUOTE=guy448;4972910]You are a doctor of what? Lasik surgeons do not know about complications? How are they lasik surgeons then, I belive they know, but don't care. And probably know of peopel ending up badly no matter how perfect the procedure is in the end. I wonder what motivates somebody to be a surgeon in this area where there is no solution for these complications, and no reason to have them, money? Really? Then I admire the greed of these people and ahving cojones to touch and cut other peoples eyes knowing they can't do nothing about problems after. That is one completely new kind of "doctors".[/QUOTE]

Part of the problem is that it does seem very commercial, even mercenary - and from what I've seen of UK law, the previous poster is technically qualified to be a "lasik surgeon" - without any relevant training beyond being "a doctor". One of the other boards had a patient quite worried who then discovered the "lasik surgeon" who operated on his eyes did it as a sideline to her Botox and cosmetic business!

I'd like to think the vast majority of doctors are honest enough not to sink to that level, of course, and the one who did my LASIK last week is genuinely an ophthalmic specialist who has apparently done many such operations before, and he got his MBCHB from the teaching hospital I'm doing research at myself, which is probably a good sign. (My research is, ironically, in compensating for image distortion in surgery - on endoscopes, rather than eyeballs. Rather more room for trial and error there...)
WAit you are saying you see starburst and all effects at night? How long ago was your surgery, don't you understand that is omething considere a side effects, something not normal for your eye to see? And if you see starbursts at night, you must have some loss of acuity of vision, cuse if starbursts are formng getting bigger or smaller, that means some untreted light is passing into your eye, while with glasses, all corrected light passed thourgh lens and yu didn't see starbursts and acuity was preserved. Its upto you if you dont mind loss of vision quality, not everbody is the sme as you about their sight, or can trade glasses for problematic vision. I don't know how muc of your side effects are, but this just proves that many people even those with bad and big starburst etc are telling others they are hapyp and reccomendng procedure. Not being completely honest, and if this doesn't impact you, there are people wh can not stand that, and how blurring of image ok for trading wearing of glsse. Sorry I have big starburst, not some minor thing, something that really impacts my ability to drive in low light, move in low light, make myself dinner under a lightbulb etc. I notice these things because I understand what it is, i do not think this is normal vision nor that it doesnt affect me, it affects my ability to live normally like before, not something i search to see, its just there. I notice that, i must admire if somebody has the same problem as me, and says its ok, i must doubt in sanity of that person, it's liek wearing dried out lens with vaseline over it, nothing is sharp as before, I want sharpness as before, i only get sharpness when i put alphagan drops which work to unutarually shrink my pupils.

It is our decsion, based on false advertising, false doctors who tell otherwise and flase "satisifed" patients who dont tell to people how they really see. Yes its completely our chocie, go se hindsight 20/20 abc whatever, they recorded doctors with fake patient going asking them will nightvision disturbances go away, everyone tells it will go away. People naturally belive their doctor, it is NOT TRUE, this problem is not solved, people still end up with problems, it does not go away. How is it ur and my fault if reakn doctors tell you therwise, then only smart thing is dont trust anybody dont do it, cause evenDOCTORS are lying about it, not telling complete reality. How can you defend such lying to patient before going to a serious life altering procedure? Sure we only live once, then we should take care of our eyes, love them the way they are, make them our preciouses right? Only oe life one chance, why risk that chance for screwing something up? In the end it is a procedure which cuts yur healthy cornea and leaves yu with weakened cornea and flap for the rest of your life, no matter if you see perfectly, still you have something from it, and still things can go bad. It would be better for me too see this that way, one life, don't screw with your vision, we have glasses and contacs, dont be naive, one LIFe one pair of eyes. Taking risk with this is the biggest risk everyone took everyone, because it i unnecesary risk and procedure, we are all naive, and don't appreciate or eyes, we were not blind, we could see with other things, we wanted natural normal vision with unutural procedure which makes a cut in your strong and healthy cornea. Sorry but I think i am crazy for doing this, moment of weakness we could call it, trusting to people, I know i should have listened to my gut, dont trust to people, don trust to dctors who do this for huge amounts of money, all is there, pokng us in the eye, all complicatins and everything, and yet i've done it. Sorry, but i consider normal NORMAL vision withut any loss of acuity, any starvburst and glare and halo ghosting etc, sorry but that s normal vision, this what you have is lasik vision. And ok, you are happy with that, I am not, as many other here. As you can see people post here wondering why d they see bad at low light than before, too much of that kind of postst right? Who knows how many peopel dont talk or post anything about that.

Reality is: THIS PROCEDURE STILL HAS PROBLEMS LIKE 20 YEARS AGO, NO MATTER WHERE NO MATTER IF JESUS COMES AND OPERATES YOU, THERE ARE CHANCES THAT YOU WILL LOSE QUALITY OF VISION. Nothing is solved, they keep on doing it, falsely advertising it, i dont know why is this called eye corrective surgery? When t doesn not correct everything rght, only one part of vision is successful at. Money makes this surgery stay, some collaterall damaged patients are acceptable, its like if 90% people are satisfied its ok, keep it going. It doesnt matter if all 90% got normal and perfect vision, it just matters that they are satisfied, while others are destroyed. And there is no correction, the sickest thing you would think, well if they leave some small prescription i will wear some glasses now and there, nooo, no glasses help anymore, your eyes are changed with problems that no glasses can correct, how is that normal?

I cant drive a tlow light, sure i can swim at sunlight at day, but indors my vision is far worse than before, so what to do, sleep, can't even watch a movie normally? And what, i m considered succes and they say everything is ok. See how crazy this is, when you are in freakin limbo of nobody knowing how what where.
