financial disclosure
FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE
  • I have no financial interests or relationships to disclose
patient demographics
PATIENT DEMOGRAPHICS
  • Nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), astigmatism and presbyopia afflict approximately 40% or more of the US population.
  • These conditions are associated with measurable negative impacts upon quality of life and require correction with glasses, contact lenses, or surgery.
background
BACKGROUND
  • Lasik first approved by FDA in 1998
  • Performed “off-label” since early 1990s
  • Millions of procedures have been performed
  • More than 90 percent of people who have Lasik achieve somewhere between 20/20 and 20/40 vision without spectacles or contact lenses
  • Complication rate is low and satisfaction rate is high
technology improvements
TECHNOLOGY IMPROVEMENTS
  • Corneal topography
  • Customized (wave-front) laser treatment
  • Laser assisted flap creation
  • Medications for post-operative management

ALTHOUGH THE VAST MAJORITY OF PATIENTS ARE SATISFIED WITH THE OUTCOME OF THEIR LASIK SURGERY, THE DISSATISFIED PATIENT IS A VERY REAL CONCERN FOR THE LASIK SURGEON AND ORGANIZED OPHTHALMOLOGY

fda ophthalmic devices panel meeting april 2008
FDA OPHTHALMIC DEVICES PANEL MEETING APRIL, 2008
  • Not a discussion of Lasik safety or effectiveness
  • Forum to discuss patient’s post-Lasik quality of life issues
  • Held in cooperation with the AAO and other professional organizations
  • Goal was to understand more about the events which lead to some Lasik patients experiencing outcomes that do not meet their expectations and how this may impact their QOL post-Lasik surgery
quality of life
QUALITY OF LIFE
  • QOL is different than “safe and effective”
  • Refers to a patient’s ability to perform activities of daily living.
  • It includes:
    • Impact on daily routines
    • Family life activities
    • Career and sports performance
    • Driving (especially at night)
    • Confidence in personal appearance
    • Improvement in personal safety
patient expectations
PATIENT EXPECTATIONS
  • Extremely important for surgeon to understand
  • Must be realistic!
  • 20/20 vision is not the same for everyone
  • Functional night and driving vision may not be same as the vision that was measured in an office setting
slide11

THE FDA IS SEEKING TO FURTHER QUALIFY AND STUDY THE CHANGES IN QOL IN THOSE PATIENTS WHO ARE DISSATISFIED WITH THE SURGERY

proposed national prospective study
PROPOSED NATIONAL PROSPECTIVE STUDY
  • Investigate:
    • Level of patient satisfaction
    • Changes in patient quality of life
    • Factors associated with satisfaction after Lasik
  • Working with FDA on study details
  • Time line approximately 3 years
  • Detailed questions should be directed to the FDA
