With the advent of corneal refractive surgery using excimer laser technology, treatment for corneal and refractive disorders have advanced tremendously and become very precise and predictable. The use of these techniques in the treatment of corneal and refractive disorders in children, especially during the amblyogenic ages, would be invaluable. Numerous reports on refractive surgery in children have demonstrated that it can be performed safely and efficaciously in the pediatric population. However, controversy still exists whether it should be done in this population. We explore the available published data to address this controversy.
