    Toyota has made cars that have caught fire, but I still like mine.

    Titanium bike frames have, reportedly, cracked mysteriously, but I
    still ride regularly.

    So ... what's your point??

    Can you tell us, objectively, about the relative merits of each side
    in this case?

    Summary:

    This person had Lasik, and then an "enhancement".

    Floaters developed after the Lasik.

    Most majority-opinion medical doctors would agree
    that the Lasik does not produce floaters.

    But this truly shows the extent to which ANY MEDICAL
    PERSON must practice DEFENSIVE METHODS.

    And even the best doctor, being as careful as possible,
    can be subjected to any of these charges if something
    happens, after the surgery that is not connected with the
    original surgery.

    This truly defines and limits medical practice.

    Just one man's opinion.

    True. DOCTORS DO have this sort of exposure (for which they carry
    insurance).

    Unlicensed practitioners, on the other hand, could ruin anybody's
    (including their own niece's) vision and proceed with impunity.

    Couldn't they, Otis?

    One wonders what the purpose of "South East Eye Center"
    is in posting these statements.

    Perhaps they could explain.

    Just one man's opinion.

  6. Otis, this case is not about floaters! Ms. Chang has irregular
    astigmatism, extreme dry eye, chunks of metallic debris in her eye
    visible to the naked eye, and was not informed that the procedure
    performed was not FDA-approved. Her vision is not correctable even
    with a hard contact lens. The lawsuit has been dragging on since
    2002, and is now scheduled for trial in October, 2007.

    Keller here knows everything about every lawsuit on the planet. The
    more frivilous, the more she "knows".

    Please forgive him. He's a bit of an idiot.

    Worse, though: he's an idiot on a mission. In that case, at lease,
    the two of you should get along quite nicely.

    Take care,

    Neil
