Author Dr. Tom Harbin to make appearance in Atlanta for his book Waking Up Blind: Lawsuits Over Eye Surgery. Imagine trusting a doctor - with the best reputation for treating eye disease in the state - to do surgery on your eyes. Now imagine the worst of outcomes: blindness in an eye that you learn, in fact, never needed surgery. And the medical center where you were treated is ignoring the problem.

Imagine trusting a doctor - with the best reputation for treating eye disease in the state - to do surgery on your eyes. Now imagine the worst of outcomes: blindness in an eye that you learn, in fact, never needed surgery. And the medical center where you were treated is ignoring the problem.

Waking Up Blind: Lawsuits Over Eye Surgery is part cautionary tale and part expose about a respected eye surgeon at Emory University who performed unnecessary operations on patients. The patients' stories are shocking and raise many questions. How could something like this happen at a major medical center? Did anyone speak out and what happened to them? What can patients do when a respected doctor makes surprising recommendations?

Waking Up Blind gives those patients a voice and uses Dr. Harbin's unique insider perspective as a respected ophthalmologist to root out the real answers, real heroes, and real victims. He will appear at the Barnes & Noble Booksellers in Buckhead on February 25th at 7:00 PM.
