Lasik Results - US Survey of Lasik Patients

Postby LasikExpert » Thu Nov 12, 2009 6:23 pm

It is one of the most important considerations when evaluating Lasik or similar laser vision correction; what are my odds of getting what I want? The USAEyes Competence Opinion Relative to Expectation (CORE) patient survey may provide some insight.

    99% report quality of life as expected, better, or much better
    98% day vision as expected, better, or much better
    98% no complications or issues are seldom problematic
    98% would recommend surgery to family and friends.
    97% would have surgery again, knowing what they know now
    96% wear corrective lenses as often as expected, less, or much less than
    expected
    96% report postop vision without lenses as expected, better, or much better
    than expected when compared to preop vision with lenses
    96% report overall quality of vision as expected, better, or much better than
    expected
    91% no complications at any time
    91% night vision as expected, better, or much better
    7% complications seldom problematic
    – 91% would have surgery again
    2% complications frequent or always problematic
    – 22% would have surgery again
