Long-Term Study Says PRK Safe

Laser vision correction surgery stable, 75-84% still satisfied 14 years later.

Journal of Refractive Surgery

Peer-reviewed study indicates long-term stability and safety of PRK.

Genoa, Italy, June, 2009, /Journal of Refractive Surgery/  -- A long-term follow-up of patients who had Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK) in the early 1990's affirms a long-held belief that PRK is stable and safe for patients with myopia - nearsighted vision.

Evaluation of the health of the eyes and the stability of the changes made during PRK indicates the laser vision correction method provides good results for people with low to moderate myopia under 6.00 diopters and high myopia over 6.00 diopters, although a remarkable difference in patient satisfaction was noted. While 84% of the PRK patients with moderate to low myopia remain satisfied with the results, a lesser 75% of the high myopia group indicated satisfaction in a subjective questionnaire.

The study is authored by Graziano Bricola, MD, of the Centro di Ricerca Clinica e Laboratorio per il Glaucoma e la Cornea – Clinica Oculistica, Di.N.O.G., University of Genoa, Azienda Ospedaliera Universitaria San Martino, Genoa, Italy, who has been following a group of 31 patients (49 eyes) who underwent PRK between 1991 and 1993.
