All of this led to Lucio Buratto and loannis Pallikaris first adaptation of LASIK surgery in 1990 by merging these previous techniques. It rapidly became popular due to it's exacting results with less and less complications as compared to these former types.

One year later in 1991 Stephen Brint and Stephen Slade performed the surgery for the first time in the United States.

With rapid technology growth through the 90s, the procedure took on it's new form and is much of what we see today. Notwithstanding the limitations of Lasik lasers and inessential destruction of the nerves within the eye have brought on many modified forms to this plain type. These include Epi-Lasik, Wavefront-guided PRK, Epi-LASIK, LASEK and FLIVC. Moreover the long term affects of Lasik are still being speculated.
