  • South Bend-Mishawaka, IN-MI (1888PressRelease) January 29, 2015 - "That's a long time. I personally have been performing LASIK for some 15 years with excellent safety, efficacy and predictability. That's a long time. With thorough preoperative evaluation, careful patient selection and a complete discussion with each and every patient about the risks, benefits, and possible side effects and complications, as a long term LASIK surgeon I can say with confidence that LASIK has withstood the test of time," shared Scott Buck, M.D. of Northwest Indiana Eye & Laser Center.

    While LASIK eye surgery for vision correction has been performed in the U.S. since the mid-1990s, the procedure has often posed questions as to the long-term effects for past and potential patients. Based on results of the LASIK Quality of Life Collaboration Project between the FDA, National Institutes of Health and the Department of Defense and data from PROWL studies reported by the FDA, patients can expect that with the proper care and surgeon selection, little negative effect was discovered and LASIK is now safer and more beneficial than ever. "This data confirms what we have observed at Northwest Indiana Eye & Laser Center. We have always taken the time necessary to carefully consider each and every patient's expectations, eye health and ocular condition before allowing them to proceed. Along with the technological improvements in preoperative testing and measurement and the advances in lasers, this approach makes for happy patients over the long run," stressed Dr. Buck.
