The definitive answer is YES!!

Unfortunately most of those who have done so were required to to sign a 'gagging order' aka confidentiality agreement.

However, legal teams for the increasing numbers now suing are being asked by their clients to make sure there is no gagging order so they'll be free to talk about their cases and help others in the future.

Children's authorJan Fearnley won her case without a gagging order being enforced.

The vast majority of claims DO NOT get to court as the defendants will generally make a settlement offer beforehand, as they did with Myra Pridham - who will be publishing her story in detail next year.

Hi all,

Just thought I'd share my story, I can't tell you how much I wish I'd found this site before having my eyes lasered in July last year...as I'm sure everyone does!

I made the huge decision to have my eyes lasered in July last year after having a few consultations over the years and finally plucking up the courage to go ahead with it. I had read about the halo/starburst issues online and specifically asked about this at my 2nd consultation and I was told that the Elite treatment (most expensive) would definitely not cause these issues and that was one of the main benefits of the Elite treatment - my Mum was in the room when I was told this.

It's fair to say I found the actual procedure horrific and through my first eye I genuinely considered not having the 2nd eye done....after the procedure it was all pretty smooth and even a month later I was happy enough and my eye sight was settling nicely - although I had very dry eyes and was going through eye drops like they were going out of fashion.

Fast forward 2 more months and it all started to go pear shaped. I drive an awful lot for my job (1000 miles per week on average) and I noticed that my eyesight was deteriorating and night time driving was becoming very difficult. I went back to the clinic and found out I had prescription back in both eyes and the clinic gave me glasses as I wasn't safe to be driving without them. This was 3 months after the procedure.

Since then I have been seen monthly and my prescription has got worse and the halos/starbursts are making night time driving very difficult. Their plan of action was to wait until the 6 month point and then retreat me - they said the good news is that I have think corneas so I can easily take another couple of procedures....NOT what I wanted to hear!

And that is when I found My Beautiful Eyes and thankfully the support has been amazing - it's a very stressful and upsetting time but would have been SO much worse without the support network available through My Beautiful Eyes. I can't believe I'm in the situation I'm in and am in a worse position than before the procedure - how the 'Management' of the laser eye companies think this is an acceptable situation is beyond me.

If your consultation is being paid for by your 'laser eye' provider, it can hardly be considered as 'independent'.

izzy.7 I am horrified and angry at what this industry has done to your most precious sense. Far too many peoples eyes and lives have been ruined for this scandal (which is of epic proportions) to not be dealt with very soon. Judgement day is approaching fast for these grubby sight ruining businesses.

just read some of your stories Be careful as Ross Hall consultants work for Optical Express in Edinburgh clinics at weekends and in Silverburn Clinic. If David Mungall recommended you go to Ross Hall it is because he contacts the surgeons there to get them to say what he wants. If you need some one you can trust go to Professor Daya Center for sight in London. I had to have a corneal transplant after OE left me blind I am also in the process of a court case. Keep up the fight we need to shut them down for good
