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.
