    individuals who need cataract surgery but may be delaying required
    care due to the out-of-pocket expense. Cataract Free America
    affiliated healthcare professionals will provide a comprehensive eye
    examination with eyeglass prescription, cataract surgery, and all
    required cataract related care for free or with no out-of-pocket
    expense to patients who qualify.

    Thanks for your warning, Mr. rrrssstttuuu8. I'm sure your credentials
    are many and respected.

    I have read the above document. It appears to actually be an amendment
    to a lawsuit brought by Glenn Hagele against Dr. Lauranell Burch. Dr.
    Burch is a medical research scientist, with a Ph.D. in Molecular Biology
    and Genetics. She is currently employed as Director of the Molecular
    Genetics Core Facility at the NIEHS. She had LASIK, and rather than
    help her vision, she is now having problems, despite having 20/20
    unaided vision shortly after the surgery. Note that the above is taken
    directly from the cited document, although PDF sometimes does not allow
    cut and paste, and this document doesn't.

    I have not read any of the information below, and don't plan to.

  4. For those who would like to form their own opinion about the work I do
    and the organization I founded, visit our Lasik patient advocacy
    website at and/or our Lasik Patient Forum

    A handful of people who had a bad Lasik outcome have decided to direct
    their ire toward me. Their attacks include lying about my financial
    history, insulting my wife, publishing my personal identity including
    Social Security number, bank account numbers, credit card numbers on
    their bulletin boards, defamation, trademark infringement, listing
    doctors we have not certified as recommended, harassing those who fund
    and govern our nonprofit organization, and often doing this while
    hiding behind false identities and multiple aliases.

    Considering the work I do to advocate for Lasik patients and the
    nonprofit patient advocacy I founded, their acts seem to have no logic
    or reason. Even stranger is the fact that these people did not seek
    our information before surgery and did not use doctors certified by
    our organization, but you can't use logic and reason on illogical and
    unreasonable people.

    The outrageous accusations, manipulations, half-truths, outright lies,
    false complaints, and attacks on me and others by these anti-Lasik
    zealots have caused them some serious trouble.

    One recently had the FBI show up at his door investigating an alleged
    extortion attempt against his former surgeon and had previously been
    charged with felony use of false identity and resisting arrest.

    Another is being sued in North Carolina Superior Court for publicizing
    my personal identity including Social Security number on her website.
    Her employer investigated how her access to federal secure computer
    systems was used to publish defamation on the Internet, and she uses
    so many aliases it is hard to keep up.

    And one has a permanent restraining order against him for threatening
    Dallas Lasik doctor William Boothe, MD with physical violence, has
    been sued for defamation, lost, found in contempt of court and
    sentenced to jail, is in bankruptcy, and I'm personally suing him for
    defamation and invasion of privacy in California Superior Court where
    another restraining order has been issued against him.
