KC eye doc: New LASIK procedure could grow patient base
Dr. John Doane said a growing number of patients are coming to his office for a new surgical alternative to LASIK. Recently approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat nearsighted patients, small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE) makes a tiny incision in the outer cornea, for a shorter recovery time and fewer dry-eye side effects. Doane participated in a clinical trial starting in 2013 and expects it will be approved to treat astigmatism in mid-2018.

There's A Strong Chance You Are Paying For Expensive Medical Billing Mistakes
Medical bills are the gift that keeps on giving. Having lost my husband in January, I can attest that not even death puts an end to the steady stream of bills for his care that I still get in the mail. Balance billing, services not covered, out-of-network doctors ― they all come back to haunt you in the form of bills ― including a good number from doctors you’ve never met or heard of, and who you don’t when or why even saw your loved one. The bills? I expected them. What I didn’t expect was to learn that medical bills notoriously contain errors ― big errors. While there are no comprehensive statisti...

Better tool to help assess LASIK Patients
By: Malvina Eydelman, MD LASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis) eye surgery is an alternative for patients who need glasses or contacts to see well. Some 600,000 to 800,000 patients undergo LASIK in the U.S. each year, and a very high number of those patients are satisfied with their surgical outcomes. However, some patients develop unwanted visual symptoms following surgery, symptoms that can have a significant impact on their daily lives. Patients who see starbursts, glare, ghosting, or halos—or those who experience severe dry eye—may have their daily lives change in negative ways. While there are risk...
