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

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
