Laser Vision Correction: Average Vision Outcomes
|Vision without Glasses||Vision with Glasses|
|Before Laser Correction||0.1||1.1|
|After Laser Correction||1.0||1.1|
Explanation: This graph compares the average (median) vision outcomes in laser vision correction. Post op data from 155 consecutive cases. Average vision without glasses before laser correction was 0.1=6/60=20/200. This is such that the average level of vision equates to being able to see only the top letter on a standard chart. With glasses/ contact lenses the vision corrects to a normal standard of 1.0=6/6=20/20. After correction the average level of vision was equal to the average level of “best” vision before correction.
In simple terms, on average, vision with glasses before laser correction is nearly identical to vision without glasses after laser vision correction. Note that average “best” vision i.e with glasses before laser correction is identical to “best” vision after laser vision correction. Please note these are averaged outcomes from my practice – individual patient results can vary.
