Lasik Eye Surgery Message Board


Lasik Eye Surgery Board Index


Yea i don't buy that happy people don't post online, they post today on facebook pages of clinics. But also there are the ones who complain of problems. I think there are many peple with complications after lasik that don't go online to post their problems, they do their issues with clinics and going to other clinics for second opinions. And vision is so subjective that I've met person who is happy, praises procedure like it's a miracle, and so easily reccomends it to others. This has to be the most reccomended surgery in human history, people just reccomend it, go do it, like its go to nail salon. First thing I've noticed with this guy he talked to me in a bright light room, said let's go where is more llight, and ofcourse at night he doesnt see clear and crisp as before. And there you go, person is happy but he had to give part of his vision. I guess there are many people like him out there, doesn't bother them, or they don't need that part of vision. Maybe it's not severe as to some other peopel but loss of quality is loss of quality. And that shouldn't be, if lasik is meant to treat cornea in the middle right, why then isn't treating peripheral part of cornea when pupils gets bigger. Actually one surgeon told me there is something they don't measure in procedure, some light scattering. Even though my procedure on scans and paper is perfect, even though my pupils are not extra large, I am having problems. Is it something they can't measure? So it's not just about people complain with bad experience, there are also who do not, and those with lost wuality of vision who are happy. And there are probably perfect procedures, clear crisp vision even at night.

It is wrong to base decision on how many people report online. Many people are some ordinary folks who don't knw how to use google. But I see increase in facebook praises and complaints. It could be double edged sword fr lasik clinics, they now advertise thrugh facebook, but people report issues and good resulst. But of curse, yu can not know if maybe admins of these groups can erase peoples' comments. Oh wait you can. I've asked questions on one lasik clinic on facebook, abut problems etc, they erased my comment. Maybe I've said too many things which can potentialy scare of faebook custmers. I belive there is a 10 or even 20% complicatins with nightvision loss. As you can see we see new people on forusm who had surgery and complain.

I've always runed away from this procedure, i was thinking to myself screw that, my brain and I are used to this vision with 20 years of glasses. Why go and change it irreversible, not knowing the outcome. And of curse too much positive thinking and one leap of faith made me do it. People should stay pretty real and not go in clouds when doing this decision. Reality is nobody knows how it is if you get bad vision after, you think and see currently at consent form with good normal and stable vision. But you can now know how it is to see bad after procedure, and if you can take that. When it happens, then depression kicks in and regret. So really dangerous procedure, not safe at all. It impacts life significantly.
So don't tell its your decision, some part of it is, but some part is all nonsense of normal or perfect visin after it, or docotr telling you falsely on your questions. In the end it is our decision, but with huge influence of marketing and other people, and wanting to see, it is not a decisin, it is moment of weakness to see. I am ashamed of myself for falling for it, i thought i was smart enough. It doesnt matter if everything is supe for you, maybe if you reccomend this to some family member or friend, and they end up bad, how will yu feel, will you tell them it was you decision not my fault lalalal? The problem is even one person damaged by this procedue in the world, is enoguh to question it, especially if everythng went fine with procedure. Are people still experimental bunnies for FDA in this, they seem to conduct their research for wuite long time now. If a procedure fails without reason, has limits, than abandon it, why risk people eyes, develop safer procedure with eliminated crazy risks liek in ths one? No, money money is huge here. Oh probably this risk will never be eliminated, eye is mazin organ, complex, light pases though it that lets us see, when you cut the window and laser it where the light passes, how can we expect it will pass correctly like before thought natural unotuched cornea?


Although several LASIK-related suicides and countless cases of LASIK-related depression have been documented, the LASIK industry has repeatedly denied any link between LASIK complications and depression or suicide. But wait! What did Lt. Cmdr. John B. Cason, M.D. say to a group of his peers in January, 2012? Some patients are so uncomfortable and so despondent over failed treatments that they become suicidal. As one patient Dr. Cason had in fellowship said, "I want my eyes taken out or I want to die."

2/15/2012 - LASIK pioneer drops "bombshell" against LASIK, will no longer perform the procedure because it violates his medical ethics.


tell me how is ths normal, so much about this procedure, how is a procedure still going on if there are suicied because of it, destroyed vision. Isn't it enough? Why do they risk more eyes? I know money, but not everyone can be that corrupt or can they?

I also was reading all that long time ago before my lasik, but i always thoguth not everyone gets problems, all is fine today, no you telling me having straburst says otherwise. you are happy yet wit a side effec, sorry, but they shudl tell their patient, glare halo starurst ghostin is the most common side effect after lasik, not 1% but most common, and than you can decide if you want it.

While I do believe that this has happen, you must remember that women and men in the military see a lot of things and it has been proven that they experience so much that at times, unfortunately, go crazy.

It's sad and a shame this happened to these young men & women. While this guy proved that lasik did not work for him, my coworkers both prove that they can still see after 13 years. It's all different for people! You can only tell them your opinion and expeirence and it would be up to them to decide. Whether their experience is great or bad!
