The researchers concluded that:’LASIK for myopia over-10 D is a safe procedure with myopic regression slows with time, and a high rate of BSCVA increase in the long term. ‘ Lead investigator, Jorge L. To:.. Patients received LASIK surgery at the Instituto Oftalmologico de Alicante in Spain, between April 1992 and December 1995. They came back for check-ups at 3 months, 5 and 10 years.The results showed that:After 10 years, 42 % of eyes within plus or minus 1, were61 % of eyes were within plus or minus 2.5 % of eyes were due under correction or regression withdrawn, or both.Myopic regression occurred in the eyes that were not withdrawn at a mean rate of-0.25 plus or minus 0.18 D per year.5 % of eyes lost more than 2 lines of best spectacle-corrected visual acuity .40 % of eyes showed a postoperative uncorrected visual acuity of 20/40 or better.1 % of eyes with more than 15 D myopic correction developed corneal ectasia .The post-treatment was 27 %.SNM the Technologist portion of awards to the following legislators in recognition of ongoing commitment to patient care and security through the Consistency, Accuracy, Responsibility and Excellence at Medical Imaging & Radiation Therapy Act presenting:.
