Steve Schallhorn on BBC Radio 5 live Investigates 16 Mar 2014 14:50 #104

When asked by Adrian Goldberg whether or not Optical Express would welcome greater regulation of the industry, Steve Schallhorn replied: "Listen... we would support practical regulations that would improve the industry and deliver meaningful benefits to our patients, we would certainly support that."

If this is true then I invite Steve Schallhorn and David Moulsdale to meet with me and John McDonnell before our scheduled meeting with the Health Minister next month. I will send a letter to both parties and post their replies here and on OERML.

When repeatedly pressed to answer the question that the ASA have ruled against Optical Express using their untrue claim that 99% of people achieve 20/20 vision, desperately looking for a rabbit hole, Steve sighed and said: "I'm a.. I'm a... ophthalmic surgeon and I can't address advertising issues."

Really Steve? Then if you're not involved with OE's marketing and not licensed to practice surgery in the UK, exactly what are you doing for OE?

Steve mentioned "rigorous standards established by our medical advisory board..." but forgot to mention that he's the IMAB Chairman!

2005 Regulation of Laser Eye Surgery Bill 29 May 2013 12:24 #108

"He (Frank Cook) believes that there is currently a worrying lack of regulation over laser treatment, with faulty machines leaving a significant number of patients with damaged eyesight."

Information which begs the question why the industry has been allowed to continue unregulated for so long?!

If Optical Express welcome legislation perhaps David Moulsdale can explain why OE threatened to sue the Royal College of Ophthalmologists in 2005 when Frank Cook (deceased) presented a Bill calling for Regulation of the Laser Eye Surgery industry which was then brushed into obscurity?

There are others better placed who should speak out & expose the corruption within this industry before they themselves are exposed for their part in it.

Quote to BBC from Optical Express, "We would welcome independent regulation..."

Let me get this straight! Sasha Rodoy has allegedly been banned by OE from accompanying 'My Beautiful Eyes' clients to their premises, but they claim to "welcome" her campaign for regulation!!

Please would someone from Optical Express explain their rationale because this is totally contradictory & makes no sense to me!?
