Epi-LASIK eye surgery is considered safer than standard LASIK because it is not as invasive. The surgeon cuts a smaller amount of tissue, and the eye heals completely afterwards.
Epi-LASIK is an advancement that allows patients with thin or abnormal corneas, or those with dry eye syndrome, who are not good candidates for LASIK, to correct their vision surgically.
The recovery time for epi-LASIK surgery is faster than PRK and other alternatives to LASIK. Survey results show most patients experience minimal to no pain during their recovery, and epi-LASIK patients experience less trouble with "dry eye" after their surgery than those who had LASIK surgery.
