LASIK eye surgery needs to stop, former FDA adviser says: Report[/B]




Quote
Even though LASIK has been around for 20 years in the U.S., one former FDA adviser has said the procedure should be taken off the market.

Dr. Morris Waxler originally voted to approve the eye surgery, but hes changed his mind.

"Essentially we ignored the data on vision distortions that persisted for years," the retired FDA adviser told CBS News.

"I re-examined the documentation and I said, 'Wow this is not good,'" he added.

I had LASIK in 2001. Still 20/20 but with a little astigmatism that has developed over the last few years..
