The original web site contained incriminating documents that showed Dr. Herbert Nevyas and Dr. Anita Nevyas mislead the FDA and the public about their use of homegrown "black box" lasers used in LASIK eye surgery.  The Refractive Surgery News administrator has archived the web site on to a CD-ROM, and is in the process extracting documents from the CD-ROM and publishing them.  To obtain the documents as they are published, click here.

Are Dr. Herbert Nevyas and Dr. Anita Nevyas "respectable" surgeons?

One might be tempted to conclude that the duo from Pennsylvania and New Jersey are respected authorities in the field of ophthalmology, as Dr. Stephen Barrett has republished their articles at QuackWatch.com:

However, when one realizes that Dr. Stephen Barrett is the uncle of Dr. Anita Nevyas and the brother-in-law Dr. Herbert Nevyas, one must wonder if the quack "watcher" only has to look across the dining room table to find two "quacks".
