Allon Barsam, MD, MA, FRCOphth, sits down with Aylin Kiliç, MD, and Saj Khan, MB, BS, FRCSEd(Ophth), to discuss the evolution of refractive surgery over the past 5 years. Dr. Kahn shares insight into why surgeons are performing fewer LASIK procedures than they had in the past. Dr. Kiliç says that, because the Internet allows patients to educate themselves about surgery, they are often discouraged by stories of rare complications. The physicians discuss the importance of managing patient expectations with regard to refractive procedures.
