Abstract The development of corneal haze in some patients treated with excimer laser photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) and the variable predictability of the refractive cut in microkeratome keratomileusis in situ prompted us to evaluate excimer laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) for myopia. The Automated Corneal Shaper (Steinway-Chiron) was used to create a hinged corneal flap of 130 to 160 microns thick. PRK was performed on the lamellar bed with a Summit OmniMed laser. Minimum follow up was 3 months. Postoperative results and complications in the first 124 eyes are presented. LASIK is an effective method to correct myopia.
