LCA-Vision CEO Discusses Q3 2010 Results - Earnings Call Transcript
For the third quarter of 2010, revenues were $20.3 million, compared with $27.6 million for the 2009 third quarter, and adjusted revenues were $18.8 million, compared with $25.7 million a year ago. We performed 11,497 procedures at 62 Vision centers during the 2010 quarter, compared with 15,335 procedures at 71 Vision centers during the 2009 quarter.

However, our Q3 declines are improved from the 23% and 22% declines respectively during the first quarter of this year.
We reported an operating loss of $8.5 million and adjusted operating loss of $9.8 million for the 2010 third quarter.
