In brief: Ref surgery risks

Risks for refractive surgery range from inadequate to over correction of error to visually debilitating consequences.
I believe the best way to avoid these is to seek an expereinced and dedicated surgeon who performs more than one technique so the surgery is customized to your eyes and not limited to their abilities. No " one size fits all".
