Hi Oceanic
last time we chat here i mentioned to you about a clinic in Barcelona that do the laser thing... Do you remember that??
If you still want the contacts from then let me know ok.
As you know i been there as well, Dr Salman Habbash clinic in Jordan, i have my own opinion about all this bright ocular thing, i have a friend that had the laser done in Barcelona and is great!!
Myself i did the same as you, but the colour that i choice was Olive green and does look very natural, perfect...nobody can tell!!
Anyway, i still scared about how my eyes will support the lenses in the future, i am think seriously to do the laser and remove the lenses...
I live in London, if you like to met up let me know ok

Sorry to hear you have Uveitis but that is a side effect that can happen with any artificial iris implant/intraocular implant not just brightocular as I am sure you knew. As far as the cosmetic result, I am sure there is always more room for improvement but since you have having issues its understandable to be very bias at this point with the aesthetic result but from the other videos, patients do look happy.

Its a matter of statistics successful surgeries and unsuccessful. We also do not know yet which side effects laser can have as removing pigment from the iris can cause possible side effects also as stated by some surgeons. Do surgeons in UK offer refunds like when you buy a car with a waurantee ? I don't think the medical field works that way, then again I could be wrong.

Wish you all the best, if the docs advise to remove it, then you should.

UPDATE ON SURGERY: Just to let everyone know, I posted on these forums last spring stating that I will be undergoing the surgery. I underwent the surgery in October 2013 in Jordan by Dr Salman Habash.
Now, I have been contracted with Uveitis and have been told by the doctor who performed the surgery and by UK Ophthalmologists that I need to remove the implants. Also, I have lost focus on objects when I observe them closely.
I am sure Spencer wont do anything or even offer me a partial refund.
DO NOT UNDERGO THE SURGERY.
Frankly, all BrightOcular care about is receiving payment. Also, the implants ARE NOT REALISTIC AT ALL. The lack of pupil dilation is very noticeable and the lack of an iris pattern further reinforced the implants lack of realism.
My advice: WAIT FOR NEW, MORE AUTHENTIC PROCEDURES TO RELEASE IN THE MARKET! Stroma medical are researching on a laser which removes pigmentation, albeit it only lets you have blue eyes but its exponentially better and cheaper then BrightOcular.
If you have any questions, let me know and I'll do my best to provide an articulated response.

I had brightocular done back in late 2010, before the lilmbal ring and iris pattern came out. My mother has it done the same day with me. We have had no vision problems at night and I drive at night alot on weekends. Also get my eyes checked by my local eye doctor every 6 months. Both of our eyes are healthy. I am saving money to change my implants to the new ones with patterns.good luck with your cirujia. Adios !

There is a new procedure a doc is doing that colors your cornea, not the entire surface but can change its color. This has been used by doctors for people with damaged corneas and goes back to the times when it was first used by the Romans and Egyptians. However the color is known to fade and have complications of vision loss. Didn't hitler try to color peoples eyes with dyes?

when Dr Habash advised you that the implant had to be removed, did he offer to do it? what was he charging? did you get them removed? was there any further damage caused removing them??

I was going to do the procedure, but when I went to the eye doctor in the UK, I was strongly advised against it, as the doctor I saw, had removed every patients implants, that had originally come to him, to get the eye examinations, prior to going for the procedure!!!

I want the laser, as it is deemed to be much safer.

Have you left comments on the bright ocular face book page to alarm others? I think its really bad that they display only glossy comments, and don't highlight the very real dangers of this surgery.

Which dangers are you referring to ? All surgeries have risks which are stated on the faq page. Side effects are no different than other intraocular procedures if researched has been done. Do doctors make videos on their website highlighting risks when already stated on the faq page or a surgery consent form as in any other type of procedure ?

It is also a matter of percentage or probability of risks happening as no procedure is 100%. We all know all medications and surgeries have chances of moderate to severe, even life treating side effects. There are many factors, such as having a good surgeon, a patient being healthy and fitting the criteria for a successful outcome.

I was actually responding to Ocenic's message, which was advising people not to get the surgery, as she has had such a bad time. She had to remove the implants, months after the procedure, and was disapointed with the behaviour of the surgeon, Dr Habash, whom conducted the surgery.
I am fully aware that all surgery have risk, but the reason this surgery is not conducted in the UK or in the US, whom are world leaders is eye surgery, is because this procedure is not considered 'safe' and does not adhere to the strict safety tests conducted, before allowing people to embark upon such a surgery. Yes the risks are stated in the FAQ, but all the glossy testimonials, never highlight the - very high risks. There are no comments from the people whom have had to have the implant removed, I can only assume these are removed from bright occulars facebook page.
I went to see a leading surgeon in UK Harley street, whom quite rightly, highly recommended that I do not have this surgery. As if it was safe, it would be conducted in countries that have very high standards of care, to their patients.
There is no information in relation to the percentages of people whom have to remove implants, and the damage caused when removal is required.

I understand, we shouldnt basing recommendations from one patient. It is more common for someone that had a bad experience to take the time out and write a negative review on the net than hundreds of happy patients. I think that goes for any product or service.

If you looked up the top say plastic surgeons in Beverly and Manhattan, you would still find reviews of patients that were not happy with something. You can't make everyone happy and no surgeon or surgery is 100% perfect.

Which behavior are you referring to ? The reason the implant is not conducted in the U.S. or UK is because it has not filed yet in those countries not because their was some official rejection by the regulatory body after trials were submitted.

Doctors cannot and will not promote a product even if they thought it would be beneficial if it is not yet approved by their regulatory body so ofcourse they will have to warn patients until it is registered in their country.The implant based on brightoculars response is they are registering first in Europe.before the states. People ofcourse should be cautious and measure the pros and cons before deciding on limited information.
