Title of Collaborative Activity:

Evaluation of Patient Reported Outcomes Following LASIK Surgery.

Description of Collaborative Activity:

This will be a prospective, questionnaire-based study conducted by the U.S. Navy Refractive Surgery Center San Diego in collaboration with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Division of Ophthalmic, Neurological, and Ear, Nose and Throat Devices. The primary purpose is to quantify the satisfaction and health related quality of life of 500 active duty patients over a period of six months following state-of-the-art laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK). The questionnaire to be used will be a new instrument which, once validated in this study, might be employed in future clinical studies that include civilian refractive surgery centers in the U.S.
