Minimal residual: A very good outcome indeed. A residual 0.25 spherical diopter correction following LASIK is a minimal correction and is not necessary to have further correction by lasik.

Excellent question. The 0.25 means that you have a small refractive error. The good news is that this level of refractive error is typically insignificant - as most people with 0.25 refraction after LASIK see 20/20 or better
