New York Laser Vision Correction

Epi-LASIK

Epi-LASIK stands for Epithelial Laser In-Situ Keratomileusis. Epi-LASIK is the newest and most advanced method of corneal surface ablation. Epi-LASIK can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.

Epi-LASIK was recently approved for marketing in the United States.

With Epi-LASIK, a specially designed instrument gently separates the epithelium from the underlying corneal layer and creates a thin corneal epithelium. The epithelium is not cut and no alcohol is applied to its surface.

After the epithelial layer is removed, the Excimer Laser is then applied to reshape the cornea and correct your vision. Once the Excimer Laser procedure is complete, the epithelial flap returns to its natural position.

Epi-LASIK is especially suitable for patients with thin corneas who might not otherwise be candidates for ordinary LASIK.

The major advantage of Epi-LASIK is that it avoids complications associated with creating a conventional LASIK flap, such as an incomplete flap, an irregular flap, or abrasions. Epi-LASIK also has a gentler healing process than artificial flaps. Typically, Epi-LASIK flaps fit more naturally in the patient's eye and could heal in just three days compared to a week or more with PRK. While the visual recovery for Epi-LASIK is slower than that typically observed with traditional LASIK. For many the additional safety of the Epi-LASIK procedure outweighs the somewhat slower visual recovery.

Although Epi-LASIK is the latest technique in vision correction surgery. If you are considering vision correction surgery, contact us for a free epilasik consultation. Epilasik doctor, Allan Robbins will examine your vision, discuss your goals and determine whether or not they are realistic, explain to you the various procedures you may choose from, and help you decide which laser eye surgery procedure will work best for you.
