About Epi-LASIK

Epi-lasikMany people around the world who are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism use Epi-LASIK eye surgery as a long-lasting solution to restore diminishing vision. It helps people to have an even more beautiful, shiny face by getting rid of all kinds of glasses and it’s side effects on the face. It is very similar to LASIK and LASEK, but here the flap created in the cornea is thinner than a LASIK flap. This can be an advantage for patients with thinner-than-normal corneas. Unlike LASEK, an alcohol solution typically is not applied to the eye in epi-LASIK to loosen epithelial cells from the underlying corneal stroma. Some doctors find this reason good enough to prefer epi-LASIK over LASEK since alcohol is toxic to epithelial cells and can increase healing time after the procedure.

Recommended for

  • people who have thin corneas, with insufficient tissue for a good LASIK flap
  • people who have professions or hobbies that increase the chance of being hit in the eye

Before Epi-LASIK

Before this eye surgery, the patient will meet with an ophthalmologist to go through medical history taking and eyes will be fully examined; Likely initial tests include measuring corneal thickness, refraction, corneal mapping, eye pressure, and pupil dilation will be taken.

During Epi-LASIK

The Epi-LASIK procedure uses a particular device resembling a microkeratome. It uses an oscillating blunt plastic blade rather than a sharp metal one to incise the epithelium just below the basement membrane. The epithelial separator creates a thin, hinged epithelial sheet similar to that made in LASEK but without the use of potentially toxic alcohol.

Recovery

Vision probably will not be perfect immediately, but In three days, many patients get 20/40 or even 20/20 vision. As with any laser eye surgery, after Epi-LASIK, it is very important to follow the surgeon’s instructions exactly, because the quality of the final vision that patients achieve is affected by how well corneas heal. Patients may experience some discomfort after the procedure, and it is usually manageable with OTC painkillers. Patients should be careful and not rub their eye. The surgeon may place a transparent protective shield over the eye to help protect the cornea as it heals.
