    Study provides insight on long-term outcomes after hyperopic LASIK

    Las Vegas—Hyperopic LASIK (H-LASIK) has limited predictability and declining efficacy during long-term follow-up, but its safety remains good and patient satisfaction stays high, said Reena Mahendra Dave, MD.

    Dr. Dave, Guy’s and St. Thomas’ Hospital, London, reported findings from an analysis of data collected for 33 eyes of 19 patients evaluated at a mean of 16.5 years after H-LASIK.

    The mean age at time of correction was 51.6 years (range 34 to 60 years), mean preoperative spherical equivalent (SEQ) was +3.73 D (range +1.25 to +6.5 D), and minimum follow-up was 15 years, said Dr. Dave at the 2015 meeting of the American Academy of Ophthalmology.
