A guy on a Forum

Apparently this guy Tony got the isowhite procedure in Jersey( I'm guessing by Dr. Klein) and it went poorly for him; apparently his eyes look worse now and he has some other condition. The procedure seems to have worked out well for a few others: soxboy on dryeyezone and another guy did a 90 day blog, but apparently it went pretty wrong in this instance.

There's also an abstract about a study a group of Korean doctors did on 48 patients who had the eye whitening surgery. I don't know if they were patients of Dr. Kim but it's here and they had some pretty bad findings in that there were complications in 44 of the 48 patients. I don't know if that means the patients had additional surgery and were fine or if that means there was irreparable harm to their eyes but it's here:

Dr. Kim did release his own study as well where he says he studies 1815 patients. Postoperative complications included intraocular pressure elevations (98 of 571; 17.2%), development of granuloma (153 of 1815; 8.4%), transient subjective visual decreases (43 of 571; 7.5%), pigment deposition (96 of 1815; 5.3%), scleral calcification (70 of 1815; 3.9%), and diplopia because of adhesion esotropia (9 of 571; 1.6%)

I think in the first study the doctors regarded the complications as very serious, whereas Dr. Kim regarded his complications as not serious once treated with followup surgery/medicine. So not sure exactly how serious the complications are but I have a feeling that the first study did play a role into why the ban was upheld for him to practice the procedure in Korea.

Hmm, I don`t know whether it is the right guy Smile, but it seems like after 1.5 years his eyes are ok

No, that's a different guy. Rohan. He had a successful surgery and had been documenting his experience since a year and a half ago. Also, on the dryeyetalk forum, Soxboy updated to say his eyes were a bit better but overall they still get red even after the surgery. He had chronic blespharitus though.
