LASIK Eye Surgery - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
LASIK is a surgical procedure intended to reduce a person's dependency on glasses or contact lenses. The term LASIK stands for Laser-assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis and is a procedure that permanently changes the shape of the cornea, which is the clear covering over the front of the eye. LASIK is an outpatient surgical procedure that usually requires about 15 minutes per eye. Before the procedure, you will be asked to lie on your back and remain still. Topical eye drops will be used to numb your eye, and the area around the will be washed and cleansed. You may also be given a sedative to help you relax. Your doctor will use an instrument called the lid speculum to hold your eyelid open, and then place a ring on your eye that create suction on the cornea. You may feel pressure and experience dimming of your vision at this point in the surgery. Once the ring is firmly in place, your doctor will attach a special device, called a microkeratome, to the suction ring. Using the blade on the microkeratome, your doctor will create a corneal flap by cutting approximately the outermost 20% of your cornea and lifting it carefully to one side. After removing the suction ring and microkeratome, your doctor will use pulses from a computer-controlled excimer laser to reshape your cornea by vaporizing tiny portions of its interior. This part of the procedure usually takes less than 60 seconds. Your doctor will then replace the corneal flap into its original position and observe the eye for several minutes to insure bonding. Because the cornea bonds so quickly, healing is rapid and the eye does not require stitches. After the procedure, your doctor will administer antibiotic drops and place a shield over your eye to prevent you from rubbing it or from putting pressure on it while you sleep. Since you will not be able to drive immediately following the procedure, you will need to make arrangements for a ride home.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"[Your staff] was extremely efficient, cooperative and gracious and [their] efforts produced a demonstrative exhibit that we used effectively throughout our trial. The jury verdict of $3,165,000.00 was, in no small measure, due to the impact of the demonstrative evidence. You may be sure that we will call again."

"Whether it's demonstrating a rotator cuff tear, neck movement a few milliseconds after rear impact, or a proposed lumbar fusion, the Doe Report represents an instant on-line database of medical illustration for health-care and legal professionals.

Illustrations can be purchased 'as is' or modified within hours and sent either electronically or mounted on posterboard. An illustration is worth a thousand words, as juries perk up and look intently to capture concepts that are otherwise too abstract. Start with good illustrations, a clear and direct voice, a view of the jury as 12 medical students on day one of training, and your expert testimony becomes a pleasure, even on cross examination. An experienced trial lawyer should also emphasize these illustrations at the end of trial, as a means of visually reinforcing key concepts covered.

As a treating physician, I also use these accurate illustrations to educate my own patients about their medical conditions. The Doe Report is an invaluable resource, and its authors at MLA have always been a pleasure to work with."

"A few words about The Doe Report: recently in a brachial plexus injury case, we used an image from The Doe Report to demonstrate the injury. We downloaded the PDF file image, and were amazed at the quality. The hard copies that you sent were even more clear. As well, we could not have been happier when you customized the image and reversed the injury from the left shoulder to the right shoulder, which is where our client's injury was.

The speed and cost-effectiveness of the product made it the perfect tool for our purposes. We will use The Doe Report again in future cases."
