If you've been told you cannot have LASIK surgery because of thin or abnormal corneas, or because of dry eyes, you may still be eligible for epilasik eye surgery.
However, many of the other restrictions on refractive eye surgery apply to epi-LASIK as well. If your eyes are unstable, if you are under 18, or if you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant soon, you will most likely be advised to wait or seek other forms of vision correction.
Epi-LASIK is the treatment of choice for people who have eyes with high powers of correction needed, or who have particularly steep or flat corneas.
