An alternative treatment to iLASIK, LASEK comprises only one laser to correct your vision. A temporary protective lens is then applied for additional comfort as your eyes heal. LASEK treatment has been performed on millions of patients over the last twenty years.
A good option for thin corneas
Lasek corrects your vision using the exact same incredibly precise laser as used during LASIK.
During LASEK the laser is applied closer to the outer surface of the cornea and there is no need for a flap to be created. This can make LASEK a better option for people with thinner corneas.
