Better Lasik Outcomes After Soft Contact Lenses

Study shows small but distinctly better Lasik outcome for patients who wore only soft contact lenses.

People who wore soft contact lenses had slightly better outcomes than people who wore glasses.


FT LAUDERDALE / Lasik patients who wore soft contact for vision correction prior to surgery had better outcomes, according to a study presented at the annual meeting of the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology.

The study was presented by Kuang-mon Ashley Tuan, OD, PhD, principal research scientist for Advanced Medical Optics (AMO). The study was designed to determine if physiologic changes from soft contact lenses could affect Lasik outcomes.

Dr. Tuan conducted a retrospective study of the six-month outcomes from 156 eyes that were treated with Visx CustomVue wavefront-guided Lasik as a part of a US Food and Drug Administration clinical trial. Patients were selected to provide a representative sample. Length of contact lens use, age, sex, race, corneal thickness, and other preoperative factors were considered.

Six month follow-up post-Lasik data showed that the soft contact lens group had a smaller degree of spherical refractive error than spectacle wearers: -0.03 diopters compared to +0.35 diopters in the spectacle group.
