    Subject: Re: LASIK eye surgery, starburst

    I just happened to be listening to an audio-digest ophthalmology
    report
    as I was driving home last night and David Hwang, M.D. (ucsf sch med)
    was reporting on some cases of "late onset DLK". According to him,
    the
    flap never really heals, and can be lifted many years out, and can be
    very subject to epithelial disruption, esp. if there was any epith.
    disruption during the original lasik. He also mentioned that fluid
    can
    accumulate in the interface which can falsly lower the iop reading,
    even
    causing a glaucoma to look like uveitis or corneal dystrophy. He also
    said that wave front can screw up if the surgeon isn't paying
    attention,
    citing a case where the pt had sat around for a while after fluress
    was
    used, causing drying and deformation of her cornea, which was then
    mapped by the laser, and you guessed it, she got a nice reverse
    imprint
    of that dried cornea on top of the refractive fix. My unease grows.

  2. Now that the word is out that there is better technology---better
    lasers, better topographers, etc.---on the horizon, LASIK should dry
    up for a while. Prospective patients should demand the best the world
    has to offer and tell doctors that they'll wait for it.

    Once the whiner set gets a foothold of a newsgroup you folks will have
    to wade thru a ton of spam before you get the info you seek.

  4. All he knows how to do is plaster spam labels on informational posts
    about LASIK complications. He must work in a spam canning factory,
    although he really smells like rotten fish.

    LasikNightmare sure seems to be a veteran poster of poison.. and is
    being quite evasive about identifying their previous alias.

    I stick to my theory that out of 14 million lasik procedures, there
    are only three nutjobs behind 95% of this gabage being posted. Burch
    is one... Minarik is two... and who might #3 be? Just who are you
    LasikNightmare?


    By the way, Minarik has always been at the lowest depths of the
    malcontents. The only reason he is posting now is becuase virtually
    all the malcontents other than some seriously menatally ill people
    have ceased to act as his mercenaries.

  19. All right already. Enough of the repeitious posting of what I said
    almost 2 years ago. For what it's worth, I'm less uncomfortable with
    LASIK now than I was then. It's still a viable procedure for many.

    Glad you posted this Dr. Stacy.

    The legion of doom has been taking your old statements out of context
    and misrepresenting your views in an attempt to fulfill their own
    irrational agenda.

    I appreciate that you took the time to clear up your position.
