Incriminating Evidence of LASIK Damage

WARNING: The Fair Use of these incriminating images is governed by 17 U.S.C. 107.  The publisher allows these images to be reproduced as  part of a book review.  Here's my book review.

TLC created the incriminating evidence provided in the links below, by using a topographical mapping system.  The topographical mapping system provides a crude method for measuring surgically induced corneal aberrations, but is unable to repair the aberrations.  The clinical descriptions provided below are straight out of TLC's own internal records.  Each clinical description represents a real person whose vision has been irreparably damaged.

Description of Evidence

Chicago Figure P-1
Postoperative myopic LASIK with small circular zone.
Chicago Figure P-2
Postoperative LASIK with a small horizontal astigmatic zone.
Wisconsin Figure P-4
Central island noted 1 week following LASIK
Chicago Figure P-5
Regular and mild irregular astigmatism demonstrated on topography after LASIK.
Chicago Figure P-6
Regular and moderate irregular astigmatism demonstrated on topography after LASIK.
Windsor, Ontario Figure P-7
Severe irregular astigmatism demonstrated on topography after LASIK.  This patient had many laser ablations to treat a post-LASIK central island.
Chicago Figure P-9
Mild to moderate temporally decentered myopic ablation with some irregular astigmatism.
Greenville, South Carolina Figure P-10
Severe nasally decentered myopic ablation with some irregular astigmatism induced because the ablation edge is in the visual axis.
Chicago Figure P-11
Mild to moderate temporally decentered myopic ablation with some irregular astigmatism on the upper left axial map.
Windsor, Ontario Figure P-12
Mild inferiorly-decentered hyperopic ablation with a relatively large zone and some induced astigmatism.
Windsor, Ontario Figure P-13
Moderate to severe temporally-decentered hyperopic ablation with some induced astigmatism following hyperopic LASIK.
Windsor, Ontario Figure P-14
Induced regular and irregular astigmatism following hyperopic LASIK.
