Perhaps the best way to learn a technique is through the use of clinical examples. Because the incidence of complications in laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) is relatively low, opportunities to learn about these important problems are infrequent. Although adverse events are uncommon, refractive surgeons must be well prepared to address these potentially devastating complications when they occur, because a successful outcome can be achieved in most of these situations. A lot can be learned from the clinical examples that have been assembled in CD-ROM format.
