LASEK / EpiLASIK

LASEK/EpiLASIK Surgery

LASEK/EpiLASIK surgery is a laser refractive surgical procedure that alters the shape of the cornea by lasering its surface, without the creation of the cornea flap (surface ablation).

It is an alternative to LASIK surgery for patients with thin corneas or who are unsuitable for LASIK surgery.

LASEK/EpiLASIK surgery is superior to the traditional laser surface ablation, Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK), where the cornea’s surface layer (epithelium) is scraped off with a blade or brush. In LASEK/EpiLASIK surgery, the epithelium is cleaved from the underlying tissue in a more precise and controlled manner.

Benefits of LASEK/EpiLASIK Surgery

Compared to traditional LASIK surgery, LASEK/EpiLASIK surgery has the following benefits

  • Suitable for more patients, especially patients with thin corneas or who are unsuitable for LASIK surgery
  • A faster visual recovery rate
  • Less discomfort
  • Less incidence of haze
