REFRACTIVE SURGERY UNTIL IT’S TOO LATE TO DECLINE
The importance of pupil size measurement, and anterior chamber depth…
“What good is making pupil size measurement a part of the standard of care if it is never utilized (by the doctor, or to communicate to the patient the risks it implies about the surgery they are considering)?
It’s a (kind of sick) joke.
Couple that w/the size of the correction AND with VERY deep anterior chambers (think about the notion of an ‘exit pupil’ taught in most classical physics classics as it pertains to optics – it is obvious that the farther away the ablation from the point of lens focus, the larger that ablation need be). Forget about it – I was guaranteed to have a miserable outcome.”
