  • Purpose: To present our early experience in methodology and results of laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) in treating moderate and high myopia. Setting: Vardinoyannion Eye Institute of Crete and the Cornea and Refractive Surgery Service, Department of Ophthalmology, Heraklion University Hospital, Crete, Greece. Methods: Forty‐three moderately to highly myopic eyes had LASIK. Follow‐up was between 12 and 24 months. The Draeger’s rotor microkeratome was used to create a 150 wm thick 8.5 × 9.5… CONTINUE READING
