Eyeing Trouble! Doctor in a blind spot.

While it is the legal norm to take the consent of patients prior to medical trials, a famous eye surgeon has confessed to initiating// medical trials without obtaining approval from the patients.

Dr Deepak Chitkara, 46, from Liverpool, found himself in a blind spot after he inserted "untested" lenses into patients' eyes as part of a study. Following this, Mr. Chitkara, lost his job at the Rosen Eye clinic, but has since started his own practice.

It is understood that the firm Lenstech had appointed Dr Chitkara as a consultant director and were paying him $4,330 (£2,370) a month, mainly for his assistance in promoting their Kellan brand of lens. The doctor is believed to have also received commission on the sale of these lenses. Apparently, the doctor inserted Kellan brand of lens in one eye of the patient and a lens made by a rival brand in another, with a view to test the lens. This procedure was conducted without the consent of the patients.

Dr Chitkara has admitted to use of the lenses in patients without their consent. He said "My use of the lenses was not decided by financial incentive."
