The biggest advance in laser vision correction is the refinement of noninvasive lasek. This is 10x safer than LASIK because the cutting step is eliminated 
 
LASIK is a good procedure and I performed about 5,000 LASIKs. I even had it myself. Common side effects are dry eyes and night glare. Which I also have myself
 
Since switching to the better, safer LASEK procedure I've performed 10,000 procedures, with none of these LASIK problems
 
So people who wanted a safer procedure than LASIK need wait no longer--they should just get LASEK
