A recent FDA Sponsored study followed patients visual outcomes after LASIK eye surgery. The 6 six month study utilized data collected at a Navy Refractive Surgery Center in San Diego and five clinical sites across the US . The FDA Sponsored report found that more than 95% of the survey respondents achieved 20/20 or better binocular vision. Prevalence of symptoms such as ghosting, glare. halos and star bursts did not increase postoperatively after LASIK. This study reinforces that LASIK is a safe and effective procedure, with an extremely high satisfaction rate.
As a leader in refractive surgery, the surgeons at Fichte Endl & Elmer Eyecare think it is critical to continue to find ways to improve and refine laser vision correction techniques while communicating the benefits and safety of the procedure to the general public.
