Some of his projects have included applications in the Laser Eye Surgery field. One application kept track of Laser Eye surgeries and the results from those surgeries for an FDA Regulatory Consultant. This application was completely menu driven so data entry could be controlled in a user friendly manner. The other application in this field was to set up a complete Visual Basic (Windows) front end that was tied to a database in the background. This application kept track of the results of Laser Eye surgeries from numerous doctors and clinics. It was used to statistically analyze the results for the various doctors and the equipment they were using. This work was done for Clinical Research and Statistics, a company owned by one of the original developers of Laser Eye surgery.
