A new study “Three-Year Longitudinal Survey Comparing Visual Satisfaction with LASIK and Contact Lenses,” recently published in the American Academy of Ophthalmology Journal’s August 2016 edition, found that contact lens wearers who had LASIK were more satisfied with their vision a year after the surgery and the satisfaction only increased after 2 and 3 years. The study is the first to directly compare satisfaction rates of contact lens wearers with those who have LASIK.
To perform the study, the Cornea Research Foundation of America followed 1,800 people – 1,106 former contact lens or glasses users who had LASIK and a control group of 694 who continued to wear contacts. Initially, those who had LASIK reported higher satisfaction rates than the control group. Two and three years after the procedure, LASIK satisfaction rates remained consistently high while contact lens satisfaction rates declined steadily.
