In January 2012 I launched My Beautiful Eyes Campaign, calling for the UK government to regulate the refractive eye surgery industry.
This resulted in a surprisingly high number of people asking for my advice, and so I set up MBE Foundation, a patient advocacy service...

Gordon Brown attended dinner parties with David Moulsdale, so not surprising that he ignored pleas from his constituents damaged by surgery at Optical Express asking for his support!

If for no other reason therefore, don’t expect Gordon to say anything positive about Jeremy Corbyn when he makes his speech at 2pm today at the South Bank Centre in London.
www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/l...corbyn-10456636.html

Not forgetting John McDonnell's strong support for me, and his involvement with My Beautiful Eyes campaign!

"Mr Brown’s intervention comes as it emerged that Mr Corbyn, who has become the surprise front runner in the leadership contest, is poised to name his fellow radical MP, John McDonnell, as shadow chancellor...

[Mr McDonnell] warned that the rich and large corporations should be taxed more, not less, while austerity that hurts the poor must end. “We can tackle the deficit by halting the tax cuts to the very rich and to corporations, by making sure they pay their taxes...
”"
www.telegraph.co.uk/…/Gordon-Brown-warns-Labour-over…

"ONE of Scotland’s most successful businessmen yesterday failed in an attempt to prevent a private investigator from making allegations about his business dealings and his friendship with a notorious drugs dealer.

David Moulsdale, the founder of the Optical Express chain of opticians, claimed Dr Allan George had made defamatory remarks about him to others working in the opticians trade.

But yesterday, he failed to persuade the Court of Session in Edinburgh to grant him an interim interdict against Dr George.

With a fortune estimated at 100 million, Mr Moulsdale is one of the richest and most powerful businessmen in Scotland. He was the youngest ever winner of the Scottish Business Achievement Award in 1998 and the following year he topped a poll of the country’s most eligible bachelors.

He is also highly regarded in government circles and his entrepreneurial skills have earned the praise of Gordon Brown, the Chancellor.

But yesterday, the court heard how he had been the subject of extensive media reports in recent years which had referred to an alleged friendship with a "notorious drugs baron" and had claimed he was "no stranger to financial bother".

The drugs baron was Tony McGovern, 35, a Glasgow gangster who ran the drugs trade in the Maryhill and Springburn areas of the city. His friendship with Mr Moulsdale, the son of a Leith taxi driver, emerged after McGovern was shot and killed in September 2000.

The "financial bother" mentioned in court referred to his company’s failure to settle some of its debts on time. Mr Moulsdale, who lives in Dullater, near Cumbernauld, had been accused of building up his fortune at the expense of companies which were kept waiting for payment and Optical Express was the subject of a number of adverse court judgments.

I'm guessing 'corporate tax dodging' would include companies who put stores into administration, leave damaged patients without recourse to aftercare, write off millions in debt, yet continue to trade and open in new locations!
www.rt.com/uk/311453-corbyn-austerity-tax-avoidance

"Labour's biggest donors pledge to stop giving cash if 'economically illiterate' Jeremy Corbyn wins race"
www.telegraph.co.uk/…/Labours-biggest-donors-pledge-…

Wealthy businessmen threatening to withhold donations if things don't go their way? This explains why the Conservative government turn a blind eye [sic] to the scandal of the unregulated refractive eye surgery industry!

I'll say it again, no matter what your politics, if you support My Beautiful Eyes campaign then please register to vote for Jeremy Corbyn as Labour leader now!

Deadline for registration is 12 noon on 12 August :kiss:

BAD EYE DAY 07 Aug 2015 16:00 #44

Laser eye surgery has been life changing and soul destroying for me. Two days of corneal erosions this week, and both eyes losing sight.

September 8th is scheduled for my fifth operation and another to follow six weeks later on my right eye. It’s for this reason I am campaigning for government legislation so others don't similarly suffer the same fate.

If you or your family have been affected with problems after laser or lens exchange eye surgery you must all shout loudly to the rooftops and contact your MPs to support us in Parliament on 14th October for Bad Eye Day (BED)

Please join us to stop this insidious and immoral industry!

Before I launched My Beautiful Eyes campaign, I knew nothing about politics, other than it was woven with corruption.

Since working with John McDonnell, a truly honest and hardworking MP, I’ve had a crash course, and witnessed evidence of attempted corruption at first hand.

I don’t know if you’re aware that John McDonnell is Jeremy Corbyn’s campaign manager...

And I don’t care what your politics are, but if you support My Beautiful Eyes Campaign, then please support Jeremy Corbyn's bid to be leader of the Labour party!
www.vice.com/en_uk/read/jeremy-corbyn-jo...015-labour-party-674

If Jeremy Corbyn becomes Labour leader we can be assured of an even greater profile for My Beautiful Eyes campaign, which in turn, I believe, will force the government’s hand.

Because, I may be a political novice, but I don’t believe the government will allow their opponents to take all the credit for the exposure of what is - unarguably - a major scandal.

"Our timeless task in the Labour Party is to stand up against injustice wherever we find it. That notion has driven me throughout my political life – and it’s what drove me to stand for Parliament in the first place."
www.jeremyforlabour.com

Two main players in the refractive eye surgery industry attempted to lobby John McDonnell in 2013. He ignored both.

With Bad Eye Day on 14 October, these same players are desperate to derail it!

Hence OE's recent attempts to discredit me with supportive MPs, succeeding only in discrediting themselves, and adding to the list of attacks they’ve made against me personally.

My MP is Theresa Villiers, Secretary of State for Northern Ireland. She’s a very busy lady and has previously given me no support. It was therefore a pleasant surprise when I received her acceptance to join me in BED on 14 October!!

If the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland can make it, then so can your MP!

Please please please send your invites to them asap, as their diaries fill up months in advance!

Contact me if you'd like me to send you a template invitation for your MP: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

I’m busy collating evidence and witness statements for my case v Russell Ambrose/Optimax right now, but as soon as that’s done I'll update you with more news about Bad Eye Day.

As well as having signed up some surprise guests and speakers, I hope I’ll also be able to introduce the new Labour leader to everyone.

I'm sure everyone will be amazed to hear that Optical Express have been hiding their light under a bushel!

In his previously mentioned letter to Richard Harrington MP, Tweedles wrote:



On the basis of this surprising and welcome news, David Moulsdale will be invited as a guest speaker to 'Bad Eye Day' @ House of Commons on 14 October.

And of course Optimax CEO Russell Ambrose will be invited too :kiss:

Nothing’s changed since 2003, except there've been tens of thousands more eyes and lives damaged:
news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/2745035.stm

OE’s repetitive and unsupportable claim is, "Less than 1% of patients will develop a complication and the majority of these are easily overcome through a personal aftercare plan.“

Even if you were to believe that lie, David Moulsdale is quoted in one publication as having said, “We have probably recommended about a million people to go ahead for surgery”, in which case my claim of tens of thousands damaged patients is a very low estimate indeed!

Not forgetting of course the recent increase in people being sold lens exchange (aka cataract surgery) - removing perfectly healthy natural lens, resulting in so many people left with serious problems and in urgent need of (very expensive) explants!

It is inexcusable and unforgivable that the government continue to ignore this massive scandal, even though they’ve been spoon fed the facts for years!

That’s why it is crucial that you join me and John McDonnell in BED on 14 October @ the House of Commons.

Please don’t leave it to other people, I need as many of you there as possible!

So I expect to see your emails flooding in with confirmation of attendance asap!

I reckon it would be good if Sasha invited the president of the RCO to BED - the Bad Eye Day lobby - so Professor Carrie MacEwen can personally tell all the damaged patients and press present why Sasha, who should be involved in revising the guidelines, has been removed from the Working Group, yet David Teenan is still on it.
I'll bet there was a big 'Och Aye' when that appalling decision was made. Anyone for Haggis ?

Anyone wanting regulation better not depend on the Royal College or any other organisation financed by its members for support. It’s little people like Sasha Rodoy who make the difference. She’s stood up to the pressure and not been scared off by the big bad bullies. Brave lady. It’s all well an good paying lip service and patting her on the back but how many of you have done anything worth spit to help? Get off your bums and help the woman!

I shall definitely be coming to Parliament...

All the people who have posted on this site and been helped by Sasha should attend, we have three months notice!

Sasha has worked so hard and I believe without doubt she will bring change to this industry, but let’s back her and all be there on the day.
