2004/051 NICE issues guidance on laser eye surgery (LASIK) for treating refractive errors

The National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) has today (15 December 2004) issued guidelines for the NHS on laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) for the treatment of refractive errors (short and long-sightedness) to determine whether it is safe enough and works well enough for routine use within the NHS.

The NICE guidance only applies to LASIK being used to treat refractive errors and does not apply to LASIK when it is being used to treat other medical conditions.
