What's very interesting about what these patients have to say has a common theme, common problem, and common concern. These concerns have been succinctly described as:
1. These patients feel the FDA has abandoned them, is corrupt, and that the FDA has no compassion for these patients, as if they work for the Ophthalmic Industry and are told what they can and can not do. In other words, there is no regulation nor policing of LASIK physicians by the FDA.
2. These patients feel that the LASIK industry has completely deceived them. They feel the LASIK industry has falsified safety studies (and continues to do so), and that even when they come in for a check up, the physicians lie to them that they are doing great when they continue to tell them that they are depressed, their lives have been turned upside down, and that they're having Dry Eye pain daily and that the dry eye drops are not helping them and that they can not see better after having LASIK but rather are seeing much worse!
Just as recently as October 2014, the AAO submitted a presentation by the FDA, regarding safety and efficacy of LASIK, and the end result was that LASIK created about 35% of permanent damages and injuries (of which the FDA and LASIK industry instead uses the term Symptoms in place of Adverse Event or Permanent Injury as to not allow the public to get over worried about this procedure causing much damage):
(45% of LASIK patients had side effects...41% regretted doing it)
