Welcome

Welcome to LASIK Surgery Watch. This site is designed to provide information about our organization and about LASIK surgery. Much of this information is not available on sites that promote LASIK but all of the information provided here is reliable and backed by scientific literature.

For many people the information provided here might be surprising. Most people are not aware of the amount of controversy concerning LASIK that exists in the medical community. Spend some time on our site and form your own opinion.

It is vital that patients who have had poor outcomes from refractive surgery be represented as a group with a voice by a patient advocacy organization such as LSW. This has never been done before and the time is right to do it now. If you are a patient, a family member, a friend, a colleague, if you have an interest in providing improved care for patients who have suffered from poor outcomes, please register today. Because every patient counts.
