Dr. Kim Robbins, MD, Robbins Eye Center complaint

December 31, 2011

On 12/27/2011, the LASIK industry watchdog group, LASIK Surgery Watch (LSW), sent a letter to the FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health requesting “that the FDA take immediate action to stop deceptive and misleading advertising of LASIK by Kim Robbins, M.D.”

The letter, addressed to Steven Silverman, Director of the Office of Compliance, alleged false and misleading advertising of LASIK on the Robbins Eye Center website.

Attached to the letter was a 34-page “Consent Order” issued 11/22/2011 by the Connecticut Department of Health citing Robbins Eye Center for “wrong eye surgery, inadequate sanitation in the operating room, inadequate medical follow-up and monitoring after surgery, and questionable credentials of medical staff.”
