Replied by admin on topic URGENT - RE WHICH?

URGENT!

In the May and June editions of Which? magazine subscribers were invited to send their experiences of laser eye surgery to Joanna Pearl.



Now I am inviting EVERYONE reading this to email your experience to me immediately and I will forward to Joanna Pearl for her urgent attention.

PLEASE PLEASE do so as soon as you read this message! There is very little time left as they are going to print this week, and you must all have your say regardless of whether a Which? subscriber or not!

It doesn't need to be to detailed: simply say when and where you had your surgery, the problems you've suffered and what the surgeon/clinic has done about it. If you were pressured to buy please mention that - and anything else you consider relevant.

I cannot stress how important it is that you do this - please don't leave it to others. Every single voice counts to make enough noise so that we're heard!

:P looking forward to this coming out. Hopefully they will comment on the statistics from real cases and highlight factual stories about the negative side of Laser Surgery.

Reputable optometrists keep their distance from Optical Express and the ones that are lured in with the bonus scheme (to conduct 15/20 minute examinations on an 'in/out/get a deposit' format) generally last less than 12 months.

I fully support the Campaign for Government Guidelines & Standards for Laser Refractive Eye Surgery and they should be introduced as soon as possible.

Which? expose´ was created by admin

When I first met with MP John McDonnell nearly three years ago, he advised me to contact Which? magazine as they had published a feature about laser eye surgery in 2009: www.which.co.uk/documents/pdf/laser-eye-surgery-195167.pdf

Not being one to give up easily, I bombarded Which? with phone calls and emails until they finally told me in 2013 that they planned to look at the industry again.

With so much else to deal with I had almost forgotten about it, so was ecstatic when Joanna Pearl (Which? Principal Health Researcher) contacted me earlier this year asking for my help with a planned feature on the industry.

For various reasons details were not advertised on OERML/FB, although a few of my clients did submit their own stories.

Earlier this morning Joanna called me to confirm that a 3 to 4 page feature is now scheduled for the September edition of Which?

Which? is a highly influential organisation and I believe the published results of their investigations will open the floodgates for the press and media
