I wonder how much money the inventor of ( ) lasik has made off of his product. I know a few people here in Idaho Falls who've had the procedure done. So I know that they've added some of their money to his profits.

One, the first chance he got, he bugged out of Iran and never returned to live there. He is now a US citizen.

Two, he did NOT invent Lasik. "The Lasik (Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis) technique was made possible by the Columbian-based Spanish ophthalmologist Jose Barraquer..."

Is it possible for Iran to tell the truth?
