JACUSTOMER-3100l26v- :

hey do you think it was a bad idea that my doctor did RK 2 times on each eye or was that normal ?

Dr. Rick :

I got his name off the American Academy of Ophthalmology membership list. You can't be a member there is you are not very well trained.....

JACUSTOMER-3100l26v- :

sweet

Dr. Rick :

No. Many years ago I did RK too....It was not a great procedure an often had to be "enhanced". But it was the best we had at the time....

JACUSTOMER-3100l26v- :

Yes Dr. Lyon did it a 2nd time because it did not hold

JACUSTOMER-3100l26v- :

malpractice i think

Dr. Rick :

I've done the same myself.....but those days, thankfully, are gone. However, there are still folks such as yourself who are having issues due to it....sorry about that.

Dr. Rick :

nope. I was the standard of care at the time.

JACUSTOMER-3100l26v- :

OK thanks again very much ill write down the info you gave me and accept

Dr. Rick :

my pleasure. You know you can print this stuff out if you want

Dr. Rick :
