In case you haven’t heard by now…

On Oct. 15, 2009, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) made two announcements related to LASIK:

  • The launch of a collaborative study to examine the potential impact on individuals’ quality of life from LASIK surgery, and
  • The issuance of warning letters to 17 LASIK ambulatory surgical centers—those that perform surgery and release patients the same day—after inspections revealed inadequate systems for reporting unexpected side effects (adverse events).

We would like to know what you think? How will this effect your business? Will this change the way you talk to patients about LASIK? We want your feedback.
