Doctor in the House: Is LASIK Really Safe?

Dr George Lee returns to discuss the latest medical news. Expect deep insights delivered with generous humour. Every now and then, news about the safety of LASIK – the laser eye surgery – will resurface. A former official from the Food and Drug Administration in the US, who led the FDA team to approve LASIK has said that the decision was a mistake. We speak to Consultant Ophthalmologist and Retinal Surgeon Dr Kenneth Fong to find out whether we need to be more cautious about LASIK procedures.
