These procedures do not require a partial thickness cut into the stroma. Surface ablation methods differ only in the way the epithelial layer is handled. Using mid-IR and UV lasers for the treatment of presbyopia by scleral tissue ablation was first proposed and patented by J.

While refractive surgery is becoming more affordable and safe, it may not be recommended for everybody. People with certain eye diseases involving the cornea or retina , pregnant women, and patients who have medical conditions such as glaucoma , diabetes , uncontrolled vascular disease, or autoimmune disease are not good candidates for refractive surgery.

Keratoconus , a progressive thinning of the cornea, is a common corneal disorder. Keratoconus occurring after refractive surgery is called Corneal Ectasia.

It is believed that additional thinning of the cornea via refractive surgery may contribute to advancement of the disease [21] that may lead to the need for a corneal transplant.

Therefore, keratoconus is a contraindication to refractive surgery. Corneal topography and pachymetry are used to screen for abnormal corneas.

Furthermore, some people's eye shape may not permit effective refractive surgery without removing excessive amounts of corneal tissue.

Those considering laser eye surgery should have a full eye examination. Although the risk of complications is decreasing compared to the early days of refractive surgery, [22] there is still a small chance for serious problems. These include vision problems such as ghosting, halos, starbursts, double-vision, and dry-eye syndrome. In case both refractive surgery and strabismus surgery are to be performed, it is recommended that the refractive surgery be done first.

Pediatric refractive surgery involves other risks than refractive surgery on adults, yet it may be indicated especially for children whose cognitive or visual development is failing due to refractive error, [27] in particular in cases of bilateral high refractive error, [28] anisometropia , [29] anisometric amblyopia [28] [30] or accommodative esotropia. Interventions on young children may require general anaesthesia in order to avoid risks due to involuntary movement, and children have a higher risk of rubbing or manipulating their eyes post-surgically.

Changes to refractive error occurring during normal age development need to be accounted for, and children have a higher risk of developing postoperative corneal haze. One study evaluated the outcome of LASEK interventions on 53 children aged 10 months to 16 years who had anisometropic amblyopia.

In the intervention, which was performed under general anaesthesia, the refractive error in the weaker eye was corrected to balance the refractive error of the other eye.
