The excimer laser has been used for a long time in industry (1975) but has only recently been used in refractive surgery. After experiments on the reliability and the effects of the laser on the cornea of animals, its application for the correction of myopia was born. The ophthalmological use was really realized in 1986 and the first eye was treated in 1987.
