LCA-Vision Reports First Quarter Procedure Volume of 14,898


CINCINNATI, April 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- LCA-Vision Inc. (NASDAQ: LCAV), a leading provider of laser vision correction services under the LasikPlus® brand, today reported that 14,898 procedures were performed during the first quarter of 2014, a decline of 8% from the 16,272 procedures performed during the first quarter of 2013. 

Michael J. Celebrezze, chief executive officer of LCA-Vision, said, "As we previously disclosed, procedure volume got off to a sluggish start during the quarter. We are disappointed with the decline in volume this quarter although inclement weather was certainly a factor in a number of our service areas, as 27 centers were closed a total of 56 days, while 23 centers were partially closed for an additional 44 days during the quarter."
