In 2016, Dr Ron Stasiuk was invited to update RANZCO’s patient education pamphlet Refractive Surgery – A Guide for Patients.
Dr Stasiuk co-ordinated the review with other highly respected ophthalmologists who specialise in this field, including fellow Vision Eye Institute colleagues Dr Abi Tenen, Professor Gerard Sutton, Dr Raj Pathmaraj, Dr Michael Lawless and Dr Christopher Hodge.
The updated pamphlet was unveiled at RANZCO’s recent 2017 Congress via a poster presentation. It is recommended that ophthalmologists discuss this pamphlet with patients considering refractive surgery (e.g. laser eye surgery, refractive lens exchange, implantable contact lenses) to assist the informed-consent process.
