This volume provides a review of some of the most common and many of the most difficult complex LASIK cases in order to help LASIK surgeons feel confident managing their less-than-perfect outcomes. This book represents a collection of over 75 complex LASIK cases from the most prominent LASIK surgeons in the world with a combined experience of over 200,000 LASIK procedures. Common LASIK complications such as epithelial ingrowth and flap striae are addressed as well as the less common but difficult complications of central islands, button-hole flaps, LASIK interface keratitis, and irregular astigmatism. LASIK contra-indications are also reviewed with complex cases to demonstrate the outcomes. The cases are divided into categories and each subsection has a summary that describes the current concepts for those problems. Each one starts with a standard complex case data page summarizing the critical case information. The case presentation includes clinical, intraoperative and post-operative photographs as well as the relevant topographies. Each complex case is followed by an editorial comment summarizing the key points and highlights the pearls and pitfalls.
