To analyze reported LASIK surgery outcomes.

A systematic review of the peer-reviewed literature from January 2008 to August 2014 is being conducted. A total of 3833 references related to LASIK were retrieved using Pubmed. Key words used included LASIK (1884), laser in situ keratomileusis (1716) and laser vision correction (233).  All abstracts from these citations are being reviewed to exclude non-relevant articles. Articles that include human clinical studies (no case series), that report on primary procedures, visual and refractive outcomes in eyes without previous surgeries, and no presbyopia treatments will be selected for further review. Full copies of each of the relevant manuscripts will be obtained, analyzed and classified based on study design.

Will be presented.
