Her death has raised questions on the safety of the Lasik surgery procedure. Jessica Starr went off the screen in October for a Lasik eye surgery, after which she posted the video of her describing her ordeal. Take a look at the video.
Is Lasik Surgery Safe?
Lasik surgery by itself is safe, BUT the real question is: Is Lasik surgery safe for my eyes? While Lasik surgery is safe, its outcome may differ from person to person. It is crucial for a patient to have a thorough evaluation of their eyes and vision as part of a LASIK consultation with an eye care professional that can help the experts decide if LASIK is right for you or not. The process of evaluating if Lasik surgery is right for your eyes is almost like a rule that if ignored can cause grave consequences, as per the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health.
On her demise, Fox 2 issued a statement recalling her professional vigour and dedication. "All of us here are in shock and cannot believe such a wonderful, bright and intelligent individual will no longer be with us,"
