FDA Responds to Lasik Feedback

US Food and Drug Administration responds to feedback from the public and LASIK experts.

FDA Logo

WASHINGTON DC, Sept. 19, 2008 -- The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has responded to a public advisory panel of outside experts who listened to patient experiences with LASIK and considered how to improve information for patients and physicians about LASIK.

In response to the feedback from the public and LASIK experts, the FDA has implemented several improvements in communications with the public regarding LASIK-related safety issues.

Improvements include updating the FDA's Lasik website to make it easier to report a Lasik problem to MedWatch, the government's system to receive complaints relating to FDA approved medical devices. Updated public information includes an emphasis that halos, glare, night vision problems and dry eye from Lasik should be reported to FDA.

A patient information card is being designed with cooperation of the American Academy of Ophthalmology that physicians can fill out with the patient’s eye measurements before their LASIK surgery. Patients can keep this card to help their doctor calculate the lens implant power should they need to have future cataract surgery.
