FDA Cracks Down on LASIK Advertising

You may have seen misleading LASIK ads firsthand that left you wondering what to believe in regards to having laser eye surgery. The U.S. health regulators have warned five eye care providers to stop misleading advertisements and promotion of refractive lasers used in eye surgery procedures such as Lasik.

The Food and Drug Administration found that their advertisements and promotional materials did not provide enough information about LASIK risks and possible side effects.

At Commonwealth Eye Surgery, we have always been upfront in our advertising and take the time to consult with LASIK candidates to explain options, as well as, potential risks regarding all of our surgical procedures.

You can learn more about potential risks on our website at LASIK Risks.
