The Downside of Standard LASIK
With standard LASIK surgery, the surgeon cuts a flap on the cornea with a blade or laser. An excimer laser is then used to reshape the tissue below and then the corneal flap is replaced back. The cornea is weakened and may cause a variety of complications in the future, especially for active individuals who indulge in sporting or other rigorous activities.
Epi-LASIK – The No Cut, No Flap Procedure
In Epi-LASIK, only the superficial cells (i.e. the epithelium) is removed before the laser is used to reshape the cornea – there is no need to cut a flap on the cornea. After the procedure, it takes 5 days or less for the skin cells to completely grow back, making it as good as new.
This makes Epi-LASIK a much more effective and safer alternative. It is also especially suitable for those suffering from high myopia, thin corneas or dry eyes.
