The LCA-Vision Full Value Committee Commences Consent Solicitation to Elect New Board of Directors at LCA-Vision (Nasdaq: LCAV) and Sends Letter to Stockholders
Date:2/9/2009

This letter, which was signed by 40 of the 46 surgeons contacted, was followed up by subsequent correspondence to the LCA Board from the surgeons declaring their lack of confidence in the CEO. We understand that a follow-up survey among the physicians in January 2009 again resulted in an overwhelming lack of confidence in CEO Steve Straus and the current Board, while at the same time demonstrating overwhe
