A Coral Springs eye doctor could be looking at serious prison time after being accused of buying unregulated Botox and other substances from China.
Ophthalmologist Dr. Francesann Ford is facing questioning from state and federal officials after a year-long investigation of her Beautiful Vision business culminated with this morning's execution of a search warrant.
They removed items, and while no victims have been identified, U.S. Postal Inspector Ivan Ramirez says, "When we first arrived there were some customers that were coming in, and they were interviewed by investigators on site."
Ramirez warns anyone who receives enhancements with unregulated materials could face serious side-effects, and if you have after been treated by Dr. Ford, "Of course seek treatment, but then of course, reach out to us because it's going to make a big difference versus this just being a sanction, or a violation, or some fines against the medial license versus it moving up the scale to a more criminal matter."
No charges were initially filed.
