The San Diego Union Tribune reports the California state agency that disciplines doctors has voted to revoke the license of prominent San Diego and Los Angeles eye surgeon Dr. Glenn Kawesch, who helped clear Jessica Simpson’s vision with LASIK surgery on April 26th, and in return the star agreed to endorse his treatment, citing his guilty plea to federal tax evasion charges as a crime of moral turpitude. In a 34-page ruling, the Medical Board of California said Kawesch’s plea and other evidence of dishonesty are sufficient to punish him to protect the health and welfare of patients. Simpson had earlier said, “It’s like being healed by God! I was legally blind, I couldn’t see without contacts or glasses. I couldn’t see my hand in front of me. I couldn’t see the big ‘E’ on the (eye test) screens.”
