Please post your comments on 'A Spokesman Said', and OERML (link below), if you have similarly been refused the free lifetime aftercare and/or eye tests you were promised when you bought surgery from Optical Express!

Watch the Zembla documentary here - without subtitles, but enough English spoken to understand its gist...
www.npo.nl/zembla/21-12-2016/VARA_101380434

Listen out for references to Optical Express and Steven Schallhorn :kiss:

Morris Waxler was the FDA official responsible for approving laser devices in the US, but subsequently announced that this was based on flawed and misleading information.

'The FDA looked at how well patients could read the eye chart in the short-term but dismissed troubling surgical effects such as persistent night vision problems and chronic dry eyes.'
lasikscandal.com/What/Who-Is-Morris-Morris Waxler

Interviewed for Zembla, Morris says that the FDA was assured that post op problems were temporary and would go away.

Exactly what I was told almost 6 years ago - lies, lies, lies!!

In 2011 the ASCRS vociferously attacked Dr Waxler's claims - as of course they would with their sickly overfed cash cow under threat!

More media coverage in Holland after last night's Zembla TV documentary :kiss:

Pay attention Royal College of Ophthalmologists!!

'There is no national database in which complications after laser eye surgeries [can] be tracked.'

According to Peter Ringens, the chairman of the Dutch Ophthalmic Company (YET), should the education in the Netherlands can be improved. “This ask really for more research. It calls for better data on the actual situation in the year 2016.'"

Professor Peter Ringens at UMC Maastricht 'is shocked by the findings.'

'ZEMBLA examine what are the risks of LASIK eye surgery and patients are fully informed about it?'
Wednesday 21 December @ 21:15 at VARA on NPO2.
Research: Suzan Borst
Directed by: Ton van der Ham


A few months ago Michael Brouwer asked me if I would talk to Zembla researcher Suzan Borst with regard to a planned Dutch TV documentary about Lasik.

Stressing the fact that post op problems affect ALL refractive eye surgery, not only Lasik, I provided Suzan with details of patients damaged at Optical Express clinics in Holland (now closed) and copies of internal documentation, which included email exchanges between Stephen Hannan, surgeons Jan Venter and Erik de Koning, and other staff at the Optical Express Amsterdam clinic.

These emails contain shocking details of an outbreak of serious problems suffered by a number of patients operated on at the Amsterdam clinic over a two day period.

NB: These have not been used by Zembla so I will publish in due course :kiss:

Although tonight's documentary primarily focuses on Lasik and the US, they have included an interview with one Dutch OE patient. And Suzan assured me that contact details for OERML will be published on the NPO website after broadcast.

[Google translation]
'GP Michael Brouwer wears glasses but he finds it more pleasant without, so he let his eyes lasered. After surgery, he has so much pain that he does not know how he continues to live. It feels like there continuously pricked with a knife in his eyes. Brewer appears to have developed nerve pain, a rare but highly debilitating complication, which he had not been warned.
Worldwide millions of people leave their laser eyes. LASIK method is most popular in the Netherlands because you can work almost immediately after this short intervention and driving and you do not have post-operative pain.
With LASIK, a flap cut into the cornea. In addition, many nerves are cut. That usually goes well. According to a study by the ooglaserindustrie even 95.4 percent of patients satisfied. Information leaflets report that potential side effects such as dry eyes or seeing dazzling circles or stripes around light sources over time disappear. But internationally there is a large group of patients who claim to have terrible pain and dry eyes kept from LASIK
.'

Congratulations to Michael Brouwer for getting this documentary made... slowly but surely the scandalous truth will out!

And as soon as the documentary is available online (hopefully with English translation) I will post the link!

Thanks Sasha for sharing this video.
Here in France too a lot of patients develop complications after their eye lasik surgery.
We are trying to warn of the urgent need to regulate refractive eye surgery.
Legally this procedure is described as ‘comfort' surgery, so there is no concern for benefits/risks.
The industry claims 100% success but what about the high % of patients with bad outcomes?
They are ignored by all surgeons and industry bosses of laser eye surgery in total contempt of the Hippocratic Oath not to injure anybody.

Oh dear, Steve Schallhorn disseminating disingenuous propaganda across India :kiss:

Steve's confused me here though, because, as OE's Global Medical Director, why does he not pass this message down to the optoms etc… who sell surgery to people in their late teens?



As for this...



Simply laughable, as many of OE’s damaged patients can no longer drive at night, let alone travel in space, and I know of three airline pilots who had to quit flying after surgery - all currently in litigation!

Do add your comment - I have!
