I just wanted to write to say thank you for speaking up on the petition against Lasik.
I’m someone who has been truly harmed and appreciate the bravery of the doctors who stand up against it, which is what I think is the right thing to do. I’ve met so many people personally who have been harmed and I continually have to deal with expenses, discomfort and energy involved with the whole ordeal after Lasik.
I have to wear the most expensive lenses now and sometimes they don’t even make them right and have had much damage to my eyes, so of course, I do not see normal that I so regret they ever even came up with Lasik.
I’m healthy in every way, and if I had never done Lasik, I would be what I was when I did it, a happy, healthy human being and enjoying everything there is that life has to offer, but now there are limitations due to what the Lasik situation has given me. I try to warn others as it is only fair they hear the “whole” truth, not just the marketing hype. If I can help One person from being harmed, I will.
I hope you don’t mind me writing, I just saw that you were on the post and wanted to human to human, Thank You!! Especially being a doctor for being willing to post on the petition. Through this ordeal, I have learned to not trust almost all doctors anymore (but luckily I’ve met about 2 I can) so you have given some hope that there are more out there who have good ethics.
Thanks and have a great day!
Best Regards, Amy Momsen
