OK, you have decided to have LASIK. Your dad had it 12 years ago for 1899/eye and now that LASIK center offers it for 999/eye. If it worked for your father it should work for you is what they say. But wait a minute… there was no facebook nor twitter than. Pentium 1 processors ruled the day and windows 2000 was ruling the day. We have moved on from pentium 1 to xeon and now windows 7 is here. The good news for your eyes is that LASIK has progressed too. First What is the full form of LASIK? LASER assisted intrastromal keratomilusis. LASER of course stands for light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation. In simple words in LASIK a flap is fashioned and everted. The exposed cornea is than modified by the laser. Now that is what we are going to talk about- the design and fashioning the LASIK flap.
Waxler does think the FDA should force manufacturers and LASIK surgeons to be more forthcoming with patients about potential side effects.
“The agency actually has a lot of power,” Waxler said. “The agency could readily require that those manufacturers keep better tabs on what happens with their product.”
This news piece appeared on Good Morning America, a television show on ABC vindicates what our Beverly Hills LASIK surgeon has been saying for years. Rajesh Khanna, MD is a Board Certified Ophthalmologist by the American Board of Ophthalmology. He does LASIK in Beverly Hills. He believes three components are important for successful outcome with LASIK surgery. A fellowship trained highly skilled surgeon. Advanced lasers like VISX wavefront, Intralase, and Allegrato which are maintained by the manufacturers Abbot and Alcon. These have have to be supported by well trained experienced staff. It behooves the surgeon to see the patients prior to surgery and see if they are good candidates. Our Beverly Hills Surgeon takes care to rule out thin cornea, keratoconus, cataracts and sever dry eyes. Whether patients are Hollywood stars or your average Joe, he spends time explaining and answering their questions, making sure they have realistic expectations.
Is this all possible in assembly line process? I think that is what Waxler is remorseful about. People using outdated lasers and performing outdated LASIK or herding you like sheep through an asembly line. C’mon Americans we need to maintain our dignity and be given the best service.
