Date:12/29/2008

CINCINNATI, Dec. 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The LCA-Vision Inc. (Nasdaq: LCAV) Board of Directors strongly opposes the consent solicitation threatened by the Joffe group. The Board believes that the Company has undertaken a prudent and achievable strategic plan to return the Company to profitability and that the Joffe intervention is a poorly designed effort to take control of your Company. The Board further believes that the Joffe effort is an undue distraction to the Company that would damage shareholder value. The Board of Directors strongly encourages stockholders to refrain from taking any action regarding the Joffe group's consent solicitation until they have had the benefit of the Board's recommendation and accompanying explanation.
