Abstract

Laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) is a safe and effective treatment for refractive error. A combination of technological advances and increasing surgeon experience has served to further refine refractive outcomes and reduce complication rates. In this article, we review LASIK as it stands in late 2012: the procedure, indications, technology, complications and refractive outcomes.
