Lasik Safe on Cornea: Long Term Study

Evaluation of cell density shows same as people without laser eye surgery.


Study shows long-term safety of Lasik laser vision correction surgery

ROCHESTER, Minn., November 12, 2009 - Lasik and PRK laser eye surgery to reduce the need for glasses does not harm the cornea according a long-term study reported in the November Archives of Ophthalmology. Study may dispel the fears of people regarding the damaging effect of various vision-correction procedures on cornea.

May Clinic researchers Sanjay V. Patel and William M. Bourne evaluated the effect of laser vision correction on cell density of the endothelium, a layer of cells on the back of the cornea. Endothelial cell density decreased by 5.3% (P<0.001) from baseline nine years after refractive surgery, which is consistent with endothelial density loss on average was same in the eyes of persons not treated by laser surgery.

Doctors said, "Our results support the findings of numerous short-term studies that found no significant endothelial cell loss after LASIK and PRK."
