Lasik Stable for Very Nearsighted

11 year follow-up indicates Lasik for very high myopia remains stable.

CRETE, February 2007 -- Doctors in Greece report Lasik patients corrected for high myopia (nearsighted, shortsighted) vision may remain stable 11 years after the popular laser eye surgery.

George D. Kymionis, MD and colleagues at the University of Crete reviewed the stability and complications of Lasik at 11 years postop in 11 eyes of seven patients treated for high myopia. Patients had a mean preoperative spherical equivalent of –12.96 diopter (D). At 11 years follow-up, the mean spherical equivalent error had been reduced to –1.14 D, a significant improvement. Six eyes (55%) were within –1 D of intended correction. Patients achieved stability at 6 months and experienced no significant changes over the following years.
