  • Purpose: To identify factors that can lead to corneal ectasia after laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK). Setting: University refractive surgery center. Methods: In this retrospective study, the charts of all patients (2873 eyes) who had LASIK between May 1995 and November 1999 were reviewed. Fourteen patients (19 eyes, 0.66%) developed post‐LASIK ectasia. The mean follow‐up was 16.32 months (range 6 to 42 months). Results: No patient with an attempted correction less than 8.00 diopters or a… CONTINUE READING
