More On Laser Eye Surgery:
If you are thinking of having laser eye surgery, it's a good idea to investigate not only the laser eye clinic and doctor who will perform your surgery, but the actual excimer laser machine your doctor uses. All laser eye surgery machines used in the USA must be thoroughly tested by the manufacturer through clinical trials before they can be approved for use by the FDA (Food And Drug Administration).
We've summarized each FDA report into the same general format:
Machine Trade Name, Manufacturer, Date Approved By The FDA;
Types Of Surgery The Machine Is Used For;
Summary Of Clinical Studies- Study Objective & Study Design;
Demographics Of Patients Involved In The Study;
Results Of The Study: Complications During/After The Surgery, Side Effects;
Patient Satisfaction Survery (If Available);
Conclusions Drawn From The Study.
