Title of Collaborative Activity:

Evaluation of Patient Reported Outcomes Following LASIK Surgery

Description of Collaborative Activity:

In October 2009, the FDA, the National Eye Institute (NEI), and the Department of Defense (DoD) launched the LASIK Quality of Life Collaboration Project (LQOLCP) to help better understand the potential risk of severe problems that can result from LASIK. The project published three manuscripts in 2016 on the new questionnaire developed by the group that can be used to assess the percent of patients who develop difficulties performing their usual activities following LASIK, and to identify predictors for those patients.
