A Final Consideration

We can not offer a better reason to reevaluate a decision to have LASIK surgery than that given by Jayne Weiss, head of laser eye surgery at Wayne State University in Detroit and the chairwoman of the FDA's ophthalmic devices panel. During the panel's April 25, 2008 hearing she was asked why she wears glasses. She explained that she chooses not to have LASIK surgery because she is uncomfortable with the level of risk involved. If she can not manage the risks, can you?
