What is LASEK?
LASEK (Laser Epithelial Keratectomy) is a corrective procedure that combines the many benefits of PRK and LASIK to create one of the safest forms of laser vision correction. LASEK is used to treat myopia, hyperopia, or astigmatism.
What Are the Advantages of LASEK?
LASEK is a laser vision correction procedure that was developed to eliminate flap-related complications that can occur with other procedures. LASEK is one of the safest and most advanced forms of laser vision correction available to date.
Non-invasive means that there is no cut made to the cornea, not a blade cut (microkeratome) nor a laser cut (intralase or femtosecond laser). No cut means no flap. Over 90% of complications in LASIK are flap related. No cut means a safer procedure.
