67 patients get eye infections from laser surgery in Ginza

Lasik_blog-711690I’ve been thinking about getting Lasik for a while now, but yikes. This news makes me think twice. Dozens of patients who got laser eye surgery in a Ginza clinic are suffering from corneal inflammation and conjunctivitis after the clinic allegedly used a dirty steam cleaner to disinfect the devices that slice the surface of people’s eyeballs. The clinic was aware of these problems, but they didn’t tell health officials; instead they got a replacement disinfection device and hoped it would slide. For shame, Ginza clinic!
