morris waxler who gave final approval for lasik at the fda now calls for it to be stopped. He has been on nbc abc cbs and cnn. he states that the surgeons are criminals and should be behind bars.

How successful is this procedure? What other options are there when glasses will not correct the problem. It seems that post RK patients who are reaching late 40's present a new challange to Dr's trying to correct vision with past standard procedures.
I have been to 1/2 dozen eye doctors and still have trouble passing a standard driving eye exam.
Looking for help--------

I had RK done in Phoenix by the doc who brought to the US - Leo Bores. Well, I am now 54 and have hyperopia - worst vision in morning - vision gets better a coule of hours later..I found out that by wearing reading glassed 1.5 or 1.75 I can see far away and also be able to read. Just wanted to share this with you.

First you were criticizing PRK, now you are saying that anyone who would do lasik is a butcher. You are clearly confused and contradicting yourself.
I think what Ronnie was saying is that any doctor who would do LASIK on someone after they had rk done is a butcher. Not saying if a doctor prefers to do LASIK instead of rk.

any one out there who wants to phone howertons office and tell him I posted here please do so. of course howerton was not the only refractive surgery scumbag who continued to do rk long after it was obselete. there are a lot of scumbags out there
I had RK in 93 by Dr Yair Karas. That scumbag left me with a 2mm clear zone.
Now I suffer with fluctuation and night driving problems.
My friend had RK performed by Karas also.
He is currently trying to sue him but is very difficult. Any suggestions.

I had RK in 1997 on one eye. The doctor told me he thought doing only one eye in my case was best. The eye that was left alone over the years has went from 20-100 to 20-50/ My eye which had RK was 20-20 and still is afte 17 years. I don't owqn glasses and I have passed the drivers sight test everytime I took it. I even passed my test for semi tractor trailers. The only time I have problems is if I cover my right eye with a glass when gettin a drink from a glass. I love it I read with my left and the right thinks it see everything. My right works for distance and the left thinks it sees everything the same. I would recommend RK to anyone. Mine was done by Walter Fried in Gurnee Illinois. He and his staff made me fill like I was family and they really cared about me. He once asked me how I felt after losing the glasses. I told him I fwlr like he was the Pope and I should be on my knees kissing his rings. If you have glasses and are near sighted check it out.

These posts go on and on...have any of you looked into the scleral lenses to correct your fluctuating vision?
They are also called large diameter contact lenses.
There aren't that many doctors fitting them, but I can tell you that they really work for post RK disasters.

hi , i had rk during early 90's , my vision was never good neither before nor after surgery , however its not so bad as i can read from the comments i found here , specially about fluctuation , at the moment i wear this eye glasses formula -2.50/+1.00 and -2.50 /+ 1.50 , right eye has poorer vision , this formula has been pretty much the same since 10 or 15 years ago , now im 41 and i need glasses to read , i wish to improve my vision , i have been investigating and i have found these: hibrid contact lens , similar to gp contact lenses but much more comfortable , ortho k treatment it sounds interesting because you can reshape your cornea using contact lense and at the end improve your vision , scleral contact lens ,,, well that is all what i have found so far i will appreciate anyother suggestion, i do not want more surgeries i have read a lot of bad very bad outcomes and i feel scary. i have a normal life , i use my glases just to drive and watch tv or computer but when i need precission or read signs faraway , i struggle i just correct 20/30 or 20/25 and at night if the light its poor , i can not see well . i heard about dr gulani before, i wish to know more about him plese share your experience at [email protected] thanks for your help , and let me know if my experience can help anyone here, just drop a messae in my e mail ,

I had the visian icl procedure done a few months ago. My vision was very poor, super nearsighted.. my prescription was -12.75 and now I can see 20/15! High definition vision for sure, the extreme detail is amazing! If anyone is interested in my experience or more information on the visian icl check out

Don't slice living eye tissue cells from your eyes, instead go for the visian icl procedure!

Have you done anything since your original RK? I am thinking of having PRK done, my situation is almost identical to yours. I wear 1.75 readers for near and far currently.
