UK's NICE says laser surgery safe, but should not be on the National Health System

Final advisory revises previous controversial guidance from 2004.


Advisory organization recommends Lasik should not be provided under UK's federal health system.

22 March 2006 /Press Release/ Laser eye surgery should not be routinely offered to patients on the UK's National Health Service, but is safe and works well enough in selected cases according to the latest guidance issued by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) on conventional and custom wavefront Lasik, Bladeless Lasik, PRK, LASEK, Epi-Lasik, or other photorefractive laser eye surgery for the treatment of refractive errors.

The final guidance is significantly revised from a controversial preliminary guidance issued in December 2004, which was widely criticized as inaccurately reporting Lasik results and relying on outdated data. Clinicians should review clinical outcomes of all patients and are encouraged to collect longer-term follow-up data.

Bruce Campbell, chairman of the interventional procedures advisory committee, said: 'We hope today's guidance will help to reassure people thinking of having laser eye surgery either on the NHS or privately. We are not suggesting laser eye surgery should be offered to patients routinely on the NHS because most people's eye problems can easily be corrected by wearing spectacles or contact lenses.'
