This course will focus on pitfalls that could permanently affect a patient’s vision, experience, and happiness after LASIK and PRK surgery. Doctors should anticipate potential dangers and predictable complications that can arise during all phases of refractive surgery.
Upon conclusion of this activity, attendees will be able to:
Recognize predictable pitfalls during preoperative examination which would immediately be a contraindication to a patient having corneal refractive surgery
Discuss post-surgery expectations to patients which if not reviewed could lead to great visual outcomes but unhappy patients
Identify and manage unanticipated complications that arise after refractive surgery
