Corneal ectasia after myopic laser in situ keratomileusis: a long-term study
TLDR
Ectasia was an uncommon outcome after an otherwise uncomplicated laser in situ keratomileusis procedure and the variables present in eyes developing postoperative LASIK ectasia can be better understood using the Randleman Ectasia Risk Score System.
Progressive keratectasia after laser in situ keratomileusis.
TLDR
Progressive keratectasia is a vision threatening complication of LASIK that may occur in previously healthy or diseased eyes and the most important risk factors are residual stromal thickness and preexisting abnormal corneal topography.

Corneal Ectasia Risk And Percentage Tissue Altered In Myopic Patients Presenting For Refractive Surgery
Purpose A percentage tissue altered (PTA) score of ≥40% has been advocated as an independent indicator of post-operative ectasia risk following laser in-situ keratomileusis (LASIK). This study was
Residual bed thickness and corneal forward shift after laser in situ keratomileusis
Long term changes of posterior corneal elevation after myopic laser in situ keratomileusis
TLDR
The present study identified a significant forward shift of the posterior cornea 6 years after LASIK, and indicated that the ablation spherical equivalent (ASE) was the most significant prognostic determinant for forward protrusion of the anterior cornea after L ASIK.

Keratectasia induced by laser in situ keratomileusis in keratoconus.
TLDR
This case emphasizes the need for preoperative corneal thickness measurement and detailed analysis of videokeratograph of both eyes, suggesting keratoconus is a contraindication for excimer laser ablative refractive procedures.
Iatrogenic keratectasia after laser in situ keratomileusis.
TLDR
Iatrogenic keratectasia represents a complication after LASIK that may limit the range of myopia correction and is recommended as a residual corneal thickness of the stromal bed of at least 250 microm.
Delayed onset keratectasia following laser in situ keratomileusis.
Laser in situ keratomileusis
TLDR
A new laser refractive procedure is being developed in a rabbit model that might induce stable corneal changes because of the preservation of the anterior layers of the cornea.
