LASIK surgeon Dr. Joseph Dello Russo:

"Since almost 100% of LASIK patients have some degree of decreased contrast sensitivity post-operatively there is no reason to test for it pre-operatively."

OCULAR SURGERY NEWS 9/15/2005

Presbyopia correction presents optical challenges

Dr. Jack Holladay:

Quote:
"By 1 year postoperative, he said, the patient?s brain adapts to the new way visual information is being delivered to it, and patients who were at first unhappy become more contented."

It is vital to perform bilateral implantation of multifocal lenses in order to allow the neural adaptation to take place, Dr. Holladay said.

Always implant multifocals in both eyes,? he said. ?By 6 to 9 months, the neural adaptation will kick in, and the amount of unhappy patients will dwindle down to less than 1% or 2%.?

Lee T. Nordan, MD:

"Happy usually means that the patient?s visual function is poorer than desired, but he isn?t complaining ? today."

Quote:
The flap is "healed" in the traditional sense in very short time, but the collagen tissue is NEVER the same again. This is about like breaking a plate and having it glued together. Is it ever really the same? NO!
