ASCRS to participate in and co-fund study on post-lasik quality of life with US FDA
Date:4/7/2008

ality of Life and Patient Satisfaction As part of this process, ASCRS set the task of reviewing information on satisfaction post-LASIK using a meta-analysis of the worldwide body of scientific literature on LASIK. Findings of the meta-analysis, announced last month, revealed a 95.4 percent patient satisfaction rate among LASIK patients worldwide.

"We found there is solid evidence in the worlds scientific literature to affirm an exceptionally high level of satisfaction in patients who have had LASIK surgery 95.4% in fact," said Dr. Solomon. "Importantly, these rates have been consistent over the past 10 years."

Led by Dr. Solomon, the meta-analysis examined approximately 3,000 peer-reviewed articles published over the past 10 years in clinical journals from around the world. Of those, a subset of 19 studies, comprising 2,200 patients, looked directly at satisfaction. All studies referenced in the global review were peer-reviewed and the resulting meta-analysis itself has been submitted for publication in a peer-reviewed medical journal. Dr. Solomon will present findings from LASIK World Literature Review: Quality of Life and Patient Satisfaction at the ASCRS Symposium.
