Night driving difficulty increases after conventional LASIK, study finds
by Matt Young EyeWorld Staff Writer

Poor night vision and difficulty with night driving can occur after conventional LASIK surgery, a new study suggests.

Steven C. Schallhorn, M.D., director of cornea services, Naval Medical Center, San Diego, came to this conclusion after an analysis of 105 conventional LASIK patients (210 eyes) involving a 55 mph night-driving simulator.

Patients' best-corrected visual acuity was tested in trial frames before and six months after LASIK. The results were presented at the most recent ASCRS?ASOA Symposium & Congress, San Diego.

After conventional LASIK, 34% of patients had a decrease in target detection (targets included business signs, traffic signs, and pedestrians), Dr. Schallhorn said.

This occurred despite more than 70% of patients achieving 20/20 uncorrected visual acuity, he said.
