Italian term or phrase: LAC
"Individuato un deficit lacrimale, la decisione se procedere o meno all’intervento di chirurgia refrattiva dipende innanzitutto dall’entità del suddetto deficit, dalla sua eventuale correlazione con recente utilizzo di LAC, nel qual caso una sospensione più prolungata può migliorare il quadro, dalla concomitante presenza di altre problematiche della superficie oculare o di altri distretti, per cui non è possibile fissare delle regole generali ma è importante tenere conto delle potenziali complicanze (ritardo di riepitelizzazione, epiteliomalacia, maggiore suscettibilità ad infezioni) in modo da agire con prudenza."

In relation to laser eye treatment.

agree  Cathryn Taylor: In this context it does appear to relate to contact lenses. If instead you believe it refers to a previous surgical treatment, then it would be "LAC - laser assisted correction" (including LASIK, LASEK, PRK procedures, etc.)
