I would ask if there's any additional risks/side-effects from the "new" method. If there isn't, than I'd go with the new method.

Well, if this is an actual bone fide ongoing "sudy" (as opposed to someone trying a new procedure on willing subjects) then those data aren't going to be available until well after the study has been completed and reported upon.


Doctors/surgeons seem to have the opinion there are "great" surgeons and "bad/sloppy" surgeons - and nothing inbetween.

I think you might not have a true perspective here. FWIW, *most* surgeons fall into the "inbetween" category, if they did but know it.

Per the original post.....if an ophthalmologist has already had the opportunity to test drive a new procedure with *110 eyes on 80 patients* well, that looks to me like someone with significant experience in what he/she's doing. If it's a true representation well then, you're not the first guinea pig
