A Concerned Person Writes:

I received an email on May 1, 2008 regarding Dr. Boothe's practice, which I hope for the public's sake can be corrected:

This is an enquiry e-mail via http://www.lasikdecision.com from: name withheld

"I have documentation that Dr Boothe has and uses on occassion expired surgery supplies in his lasik and lense replacement surgeries. He also does not clean his surgery room. You can see dry liquids from patients on beds."

Boothe v. Hanson

In early 2005, Brent Hanson posted documents on my forum relating to Dr. Boothe. When Mr. Hanson notified me asking to have them removed, I did so at his request. Recently I updated my website with the following documents for several reasons:

As a matter of public safety, facts (regardless of) should not be withheld.

Like Mr. Hanson, I have been silenced through the courts. It is my firm belief that our rights have been severely denied.


BOOTHE v. HANSON - PDF Documents


I've been notified that Dr. Boothe is highly upset these documents have become public. Enough so that he hired someone to visit Mr. Hanson's place of residency to copy the hard drive on his computer. Mr. Hanson is under court order not to divulge any information regarding his lawsuit with Dr. Boothe. The information was received prior to court order.


On June 25, 2005, I received an email with the following:

From My Archives

This information was taken from my archives. LasikQuack.com was a website fought to be removed from the web by Dr. Boothe. The site had information not really any different than what's out there now...

Learning about LASIK

LASIK is a surgical procedure intended to reduce a person's dependency on glasses or contact lenses. The goal of this Web site is to provide objective information to the public about LASIK surgery.

LASIK stands for Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis and is a procedure that permanently changes the shape of the cornea, the clear covering of the front of the eye, using an excimer laser. A knife, called a microkeratome, is used to cut a flap in the cornea. A hinge is left at one end of this flap. The flap is folded back revealing the stroma, the middlesection of the cornea. Pulses from a computer-controlled laser vaporize a portion of the stroma and the flap is replaced. There are other techniques and many new terms related to LASIK that you may hear about.

Other types of refractive surgery

PRK was the first surgical procedure developed to reshape the cornea, by sculpting, using a laser. Later, LASIK was developed. The same type of laser is used for LASIK and PRK. Often the exact same laser is used for the two types of surgery. The major difference between the two surgeries is the way that the stroma, the middle layer of the cornea, is exposed before it is vaporized with the laser. In PRK, the top layer of the cornea, called the epithelium, is scraped away to expose the stromal layer underneath. In LASIK, a flap is cut in the stromal layer and the flap is folded back.

Another type of refractive surgery is thermokeratoplasty in which heat is used to reshape the cornea. The source of the heat can be a laser, but it is a different kind of laser than is used for LASIK and PRK. Other refractive devices include corneal ring segments that are inserted into the stroma and special contact lenses that temporarily reshape the cornea (orthokeratology).

Where can I go to find a LASIK surgeon in North Dallas who is not a "quack"?

What are the risks of LASIK?

Before undergoing a refractive procedure, you should carefully weigh the risks and benefits based on your own personal value system, and try to avoid being influenced by friends that have had the procedure or doctors encouraging you to do so.  One of the best ways to learn about risks of laser eye surgery is to visit the patient web sites listed below.
