CINCINNATI, March 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- LCA-Vision Inc.

After in-person meetings with LCA-Vision Board and management representatives as well as with the dissident group, and conducting a thorough analysis of their proposals and supporting statements, RiskMetrics recommends that LCA-Vision stockholders vote in support of the Board and management on all proposals.

"Current management and the Board of Directors are working diligently to build stockholder value. We have undertaken a multi-initiative plan that encompasses all aspects of our business and are delighted that RiskMetrics recognizes our actions and accomplishments.
