  • Information


Femtosecond-assisted laser in-situ keratomileusis flaps have revolutionized refractive surgery since their introduction.

The use of the femtosecond laser to create the LASIK flap has led to an improvement in the safety profile of the flap creation step as compared to the mechanical microkeratome.

Although this laser is exceedingly safe, complications still do occur.

LASIK Emergencies: A Video Primer focuses specifically on the different flap complications that are still known to occur and their management. Designed as a narrated video-based book of ophthalmic surgeries, LASIK Emergencies covers the entire spectrum of Intralase flap complications.

With 15 chapters, this book and accompanying website contains nearly 4 hours of state-of-the-art video teaching. Drs. Samir Melki and Ali Fadlallah have designed LASIK Emergencies so that each chapter focuses on a specific complication and its management, and features multiple videos for each.

Each video is edited in such a way that the viewer can quickly grasp all the relevant information without having to sit through extensive, unedited surgical videos.
