    Dear Mark,

    Subject: your new website

    Mark> Can you take a look at it and make any
    recommendations regarding content, layout etc. please?

    Odis> What is your goal in creating this website? It looks
    as though you may be trying to drive traffic to a page
    in order to create revenue from Google Ads.

    Odis> Is this correct?

    Odis> It may be important to disclose this up front. As
    an "example," I have been trying to get people to
    believe that I am simply a caring and compassionate old
    man when, in REALITY, I have been trying to sell a
    book for $24.95.

    Odis> Once this came out, it became much easier for
    people both to question my "motives" AND, because I had
    NOT BEEN HONEST, to wonder what else I might be
    lying about.

    Odis> As always, I recommend that people have ALL the
    information. Then, they can make the BEST decision on
    their own.

    Odis> Much can be learned about this, AND about kung pao,
    at:

    www.chinesefoodformyopes.org

    But that is simply the nature of the PREVENTIVE second
    opinion as it relates to Asian cuisine.

    Best,

    Odis

    What I would like to know is how wavefront error is measured? I presume that
    it is some kind of interferometer or equivalent. I have trouble with the
    typical Google search because all of the marketing and hand holding hyp that
    makes it very difficult to find specific description of measurement
    technique.

  4. Try our website's article on wavefront Lasik at http://www.USAEyes.org
    and click on | Considerations | Which Surgery For You? | Wavefront |
    to see if it provides the balanced information you seek.

    Dear Mark,

    Subject: Content.

    Yes, I would suggest you include
    the commentary by "Malcontent" on
    this sci.med.vision -- as a
    balance for those "glowing" reports
    on Lasik.

    When Lasik is good -- it is
    wonderful.

    When is fails -- it is a total
    disaster. No one should go into
    it until he understands that
    he is "rolling the dice".

    Just a suggestion for content.

    There are a number of clear and graphic explanations of aberrometry
    showing that it is quite distinct from interferometry. Search for
    presentations by Larry Thibos.

    I have not heard the term aberrometry used before although it is almost
    self-explanatory. To my mind, wave front almost implies interferometry. Very
    sensitive optical tests such as the Foucault knife test or Ronchi tests are
    often used. With modern computing power, their results can be expressed as
    wave front error, they certainly do not measure wave fronts directly.

    Dear Mark,

    Please disregard Otis's postings. He is not in the medical profession and
    not in any position to give medical advice.

    Thank you!

    Yes, Allen, and the woman who had her vision destroyed
    with lasik, "...is not in a position to give any advice
    about the risks of Lasik".

    Actually, he/she's not, Uncle Otie.

    What he/she IS in a position to do is to recount a personal anecdote.
    Critical thinkers who do their own INDEPENDENT research can put that
    decision in the larger context of realistic and adequate sample sizes
    to better understand the risks, the risk factors, and ways to minimize
    those risks.

    This is just ONE MORE example of your fundamentally flawed
    understanding of science, logic, and statistics.

    I still chuckle every time you say that those who enter college WILL
    shift myopic by something like 1.3 diopters based on an AVERAGE of
    students. You have NO understanding of concepts like range, variance,
    and standard deviation, so ... as always ... you prey on people who
    don't either.

    You are, indeed, a sick, old man....
