17 on the part of the ophthalmologist and is considered a contraindication to LASIK; the safety and efficacy of surface ablation in these cases remains to be determined. Studies are under way to determine the suitability of some keratorefractive procedures in combination with corneal collagen crosslinking as alternative therapeutic modalities for these patients. Corneal topography and tomography can also be used to demonstrate the effects of keratorefractive procedures. Preoperative and postoperative maps may be compared to determine the refractive effect achieved (difference map; Fig 1-13).

The cornea should be evaluated for surface abnormalities such as decreased tear breakup time (Fig 2-1) and punctate epithelial erosions (Fig 2-2). Significant blepharitis (Fig 2-3), meibomitis, and dry-eye syndro me should be addressed before refractive surgery, as they are associated with increased postoperative discomfort and decreased vision. A careful examination for epithelial basement membrane dystrophy (Fig 2-4) is required, because its presence increases the risk of flap complications during LASIK.
